Acrobatics is the performance of extraordinary human feats of strength, balance, and agility. It can be found in many of the kinds of performing arts, sporting events, and martial arts. Acrobatics can include all sorts of stunts such as tumbling, rolling around on the ground like a clown, jumping up and down like a cuckoo head and all sorts of things. Acrobatics is very similar to gymnastics except that it is not a competition sport and is more for entertainment. As such there is not so much an emphasis on perfection as there is on impressing the audience with your antics.
Fitness on the other hand is just a bunch of exercises that you do to keep fit. Being fit is the capacity to do vigorous activity without clonking out. So if someone has a good fitness level than it means that they are able to do lots of physical stuff for longer periods of time than someone who is unfit. To get fit one needs to do lots of exercises which is why they also call gyms fitness centres. That is they are places that you go to to do fitness related activities designed to get you fit. So you do these exercise to improve your cardio abilities.
Regardless of whether you do fitness or acrobatics chances are you will need some mats. The mats are designer to help you training longer in your chosen activity. So if you do fitness training you will probably want to get your hands on fitness mats. If you do acrobatics then you would probably want to get your hands on some acrobatics mats. Whilst they might both be mats what kind of mats they are depend on what you plan on doing. Both acrobatics mats and fitness mats come in a variety of options. This is good because I reckon you might need a few different options to satisfy your needs.
With acrobatics mats I reckon you might was something thicker although it is entirely up to you. If you are going to do acrobatics training then presumably you now what you are in for. We have EVA mats which are a good choice if you are going to to tumbling and stuff. If you are going to do somersaults then you might want to consider crash mats. The impact of doing a somersault on EVA mats and falling badly might cause you some horrific injuries if it doesn’t go well. On the other hand falling on thick crash mats might lessen the impact which is something you would want.
With fitness mats I would say that an EVA mats would be sufficient. So long as you are not using some kind of equipment such as the Ninja Warriors then you should be fine. Those Ninja Warriors are crazy guys that climb all sorts of things which are crazy. Fitness guys just need a nice mats such as an EVA mat which will take away some of the impact and allow them to training longer. Sometimes they even use rubber mats which you would have seen in gyms all over Australia and the world we live in.
