What thickness mat is best for exercise?

What do you call the mat used for exercise?
They’re used for crunches and stretching exercises, or any other general exercise you prefer; they can absorb some amount of impact shock and provide cushioning between you and the floor during general exercise. They’re made from closed cell PVC and usually also have an easy to clean vinyl cover.
