Like a wild bucking bronco, this item can't be tamed. It also can't be gift-wrapped. Sorry!
Features & Benefits:
Great for stretching and promoting flexibility
Alleviates muscle stiffness
Great on upper and lower back, IT band, hamstring, abductors and upper arms
Many people suggested I buy one of these for my IT band issues. Road Runner is a reliable place for this sort of product. I just wish they had more than pink or blue. I suppose color is minor if the product works. It is awkward to roll the hip/side of my leg and it hurts tremendously, but it does seem to loosen the tightness and eventually the pain also eases up a bit.
I love this thing! I had a fitness trainer show me how to use this to on my legs before and after runs to stretch and work out problem areas of legs. Instructions came with the roller to show you how to work on arms, thighs, and the back also. My husband loves it for the back! I would definitely recommend this to other runners or anyone who works out or has a problem back.

Foam your way to flexibility
A 35 year runner, I had always wondered about the use of foam rollers and never tried it. Now working with a trainer and she suggested - commended - that I use one. It hurts in all the right places and for all the right reasons; it also is working as my flexibility increased from the first use!

Great for Tight Hammies and ITB Issues
I run 25-30 miles a week and always had tight hamstrings and then I developed ITB Syndrome. My Sports doctor highly recommended using the Foam Roller at home and it is indeed INCREDIBLE!! After every run, I roll out my hammies and of course the ITB and I have had no problems since I started using it.

This thing worked for me!
I've been fighting IT band issues for 4 months, and this was the first thing that really worked. It gets in as deep as you want, and as often as you want to do so. It does as well as a massage therapist, but is available at any time. I'm real glad I purchased two of them, one for home and one for work.

Not much to say about this. It does the job of you use it and use it correctly. I try and use it. Wrote and after running. I also use it on cross training days and rest days before stretching.
Hurts so good
I use this every day after my training runs. I found a few videos on line and it really helped me work out soreness. I fought IT band syndrome and my PT recommended a foam roller. This is smooth but dense.
I bought this to help with a nagging sore quad muscle. Works great for that, but my husband also started using it on his lower back and he loves it!

Not Your Trigger-Point Foam Roller
I bought this item because my boyfriend has a Trigger-Point Foam Roller. I used it and it was really awesome. This, however is not the same as Trigger Point Roller. However, it doesn't make it bad, it's just totally different. I find this foam roller to be really useful for relaxation and general stretching. It's not as intense as a trigger-point foam roller, but effective in a completely different way! I now have both and use this one almost daily!

awesome and worth it!
After workouts for the after-pain!
loosens up tight muscles minimizing cramps and increasing blood flow.
