7/8" thick with a diamond pattern. Covers the entire workout area. That was to address the possible slipping when working out barefoot--no chance of that.

my advice are indoor soccer shoes. they are not very expensive, fit good to the foot, the soles are very thin and you don't slip.

Doesn't that defeat the purpose of having close contact with the floor, and less squoosh ?

If the mat is firm, like the floor matting that you see in many gyms, I think it'd be OK. I've never felt squooshy with that stuff.

Yeah, that's the one. Virtually no give.

I've had 3-4 barefoot workouts already and absolutely love it. Especially the deadlift!
