Physical fitness is a big part of my life. I make it a point to exercise every day, even if I only have 15 minutes to squeeze in a quick work out. We joined our local community fitness center in February, and I have made it a point to make sure we work out as a family regularly. I feel that if I lead by example, my children will also gain an interest in keeping fit and healthy. We take family Zumba classes in the evenings, and some weeks we add in swimming. I have enjoyed most of the fitness classes we have taken as a family, so I decided to start going to some of the morning adult classes while my girls are at school. I am going to admit, I am not crazy about yoga. I am more of a cardio and Pilates kind of girl. However, I have started taking the Pilates Barre classes which is a mixture of Pilates and Yoga, and I am having a great time doing those exercises! The one thing that has been bothering me though, is the mats the gym offers. Sometimes I decide to just drop into a class on a whim, forgetting to take my own yoga mat with me. While the gym mats are comfortable, I don’t think they are very sanitary. I have never seen anyone clean or sanitize them after use. Who wants to lay on a mat that was previously soaked in someone else’s sweat? Yuck!
Thankfully I don’t have to worry about that any more. The Shandali GOSWEAT Yoga Towel has been my newest workout accessory! It is a lightweight yoga towel that you lay over your yoga mat. Designed to prevent slipping in a hot yoga class, it will help stabilize your practice, soak up sweat, and best of all, creates a hygienic layer between you and your mat.
The Shandali GOSWEAT Yoga Towel measures in at 26.5” wide x 72” long, so it will cover your mat perfectly. The material is super soft, made of Micro-fiber: 80% Polyester/20% Nylon, and weighs in at about 350 grams per towel. I think it is the perfect size and weight to fold up and keep stored in my gym bag at all times, and especially for those days I just drop in to a Pilates class and don’t have my mat with me. The performance of the towel is superb! It doesn’t shuffle, bunch, or move at all during my exercises. When working out on just a mat, it gets slippery when you sweat, and since this towel soaks up the sweat with ease, you can focus on your exercises instead of where you are sliding to! I love the dark gray color. It hides dirt and sweat rings very well. I have washed it several times, and it still looks and feels great! No shrinking or color fading! I will definitely continue to use this towel at the gym and at home for all of my workouts.
The Shandali GOSWEAT Yoga Towel is available for purchase at Amazon for $29.95 plus shipping. If you are not satisfied with your mat for any reason, there is a hassle free, money back guarantee for 30 days after your purchase, so you can purchase the towel risk free.
