We're not yet back in the gym and DD L8 wants panel mats. Is the $90 walmart version fine or we need the $130 gym-branded one? Any guidance?

We have 2” thick 4x10 mats from amazon. They were under $100 and they work great.

I have a gymnastics panel mat and an IKEA panel mat, and in my opinion, the IKEA one is much better and it was only $30.
In my experience the more expensive ones aren't always better!

IKEA mats are great. A little small but you can have two if needed. All of my girls have IKEA mats at home and they did their home conditioning on them during the lockdown.
