16. How to Wash my Calf Compression Sleeves? 

  • Hand-wash your compression sleeves if they're not too dirty. Use mild soap and cool water when washing and rinsing. If using the washer, please place the sleeves in a mesh garment bag to protect them during the wash cycle.
  • Always use the gentle cycle and NEVER use hot water. The water temperature should be cool for dark colored garments or warm for light colored items.
  • Use Mild soaps or detergents.
  • Gently, squeeze out excess water and roll the garment in a dry towel to remove as much water as possible. Do not stretch or wring them.
  • The calf sleeve should be turned inside out when air drying them.


 17. How to Measure My Knee Before Buying My Neoprene Knee Sleeves?

  • Use a soft, flexible measuring tape in order to get the right size for your knee.
  • For the most accurate measurement, have a friend or family member take them for you and ask her to measure around the lower leg, below the kneecap, flexing the knee joint at 30 degrees.
  • If a tight fit is desired - try ordering a single size below what is recommended by the size chart.
S: 11.5 - 13.5 inches. 
M: 13.5 - 15 inches. 
L: 15 - 16.5 inches. 
XL: 16.5 - 18 inches.


18. Will my Exercise Mat stain white carpet?

Our Exercise Mats in general are not leaving any stains and are good to be used on concrete, hardwood floors and carpets. However, as a measure of precaution, we do not recommend using these mats on a white carpet.


19. How should I clean my ActiveGear Exercise Mat?

For a quick clean, we recommend using a microfiber towel to wipe away any moisture. If your mat needs a deeper cleaning, we recommend the following:

  • Use warm water only. If really needed, use some mild soap along with the warm water to get rid of any hard stains or dirt.
  • Use a cloth or soft brush to scrub the top surface.
  • Wipe clean and dry using a towel and let air dry.
  • Make sure your mat is completely dry on both sides before rolling up. You then can secure it using the two velcro storage straps that are included with your mat.


 20. Can I put my fitness training equipment on my ActiveGear Exercise Mat? 

Our Premium Exercise Mats can be used to protect your flooring, provide extra cushion, and reduce vibrations and noise from your gym and fitness training equipment such as elliptical machines, stationary bikes, treadmills, and other gym equipment. Bear in mind, if the equipment is heavy and also has sharp edges, it may leave an imprint on your mat.


21. What are ActiveGear Exercise Mats made of?

Our eco-friendly Premium Exercise Mats are latex-free, phthalate-free, silicone-free, and toxin-free. They're made of premium high density, non-toxic 16P free natural rubber and PER foam. Our exercise mats are tested to ensure they have no odor, no smell, no phthalates, no latex, no silicone, and no toxins.


22. What diameter does the Mat roll up into easily?

  • 5.6 inches diameter for the 6x4 Large Exercise Mat
  • 6 inches diameter for the 8x6 Extra Large Exercise Mat


23. Does my Exercise Mat come with a travel bag?

All our Exercise Mats come in a store bag as it serves to roll up the mat and store it if you don't use it for a while. As our heavy duty exercise mats are thicker than a regular yoga mat, they don't come in a travel bag.
The ActiveGear Exercise Mats are more durable and more tear resistant than a light gym mat and also designed for higher impact and more intense workouts. This is not a mat to transport to your yoga class at the local gym, but definitely the best mat to have at your home gym.


24. Does my Waist Trimmer contains Latex?

Our ActiveGear Waist Trimmer Does Not Contain Latex, and it is made of Neoprene material. However, the item may contain traces of chemicals that are also present in Latex. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND TO NOT USE THE ActiveGear WAIST TRIMMER IF YOU HAVE SKIN DISORDERS SUCH AS:

  • Eczema.
