The Dollamur SAQ Fitness Mat is designed to develop short and fast foot movements, which are the essence of quickly repositioning the base of the body and quickly changing directions.

We have found the low-level plyometric training associated with low amplitude, fast, changes of direction to be extremely effective and very forgiving to all joints of the lower body.
