TRIGGER POINT THE GRID FOAM ROLLER :: You'll never have to buy another foam roller again! Trigger Point The Grid Foam Roller is made from soft foam that will never break down, unlike conventional foam roller construction. The Grid pattern helps you massage away sore muscles and knots. Plus, The Grid Foam Roller uses less material than regular foam rollers to reduce environmental impact.
Like a wild bucking bronco, this item can't be tamed. It also can't be gift-wrapped. Sorry!
Features & Benefits:
1 Grid Roller: Can massage any area of the body
1 Instructional Fold-out: Outlines how to use product
I am a dancer who runs for cardio and endurance training. We have these types of things in our gyrokenisis room to help us to roll out sore or tight muscles but this particular item is much sturdier than the ones I have had access too in the past. I absolutely LOVE IT and use it everyday!
Firm and Functional
this holds its firmness much longer than the standard foam rollers. it can be very hard if your muscles/IT bands are stiff but that motivates to really improve your stretching. i'm really enjoying mine. i don't really notice the nubs and ridges that much.

I use this daily!
I didn't understand the appeal of foam rolling until I tried it. This is INCREDIBLE on your muscles. It addresses soft tissue damage and soreness in a way stretching cannot. I didn't realize how tight some of my muscles were until I rolled them out on this. It is better than a deep tissue massage in my opinion. I use this at least once a day. It can be painful (like on the ITBand) but that indicates you NEED this and the pain does subside after some use. It is more relaxing on other muscles. Great for all runners. Use after runs to speed up recovery AND prevent injury. This is also good around the joints. I wish this particular foam roller were a little longer but I am still pleased with it, and can roll on both quads at the same time so it is not "too" small to get the job done. I also wish it came with an instructional DVD BUT there are plenty of online resources with videos. This foam roller is much better than the ones my gym carries (which are like larger/denser pool noodles). This is a much better quality that will last forever. As for the grooves, I really can't tell a difference from the smooth foam rollers but they are a nice addition. It seems a 2.0 version is coming out that is longer. It is a bit more costly. I would still purchase this one all over again. It is of great quality and JUST long enough. Will travel well. Get one...you'll be glad you did!
Very Firm Roller!
This company makes great massage items, the Grid is one of many. I like the knobs that other rollers don't have, and this is very firm.
I wish I would have bought it sooner!
This foam roller is truly fantastic. I had been using a cheap soft foam one from the chiropractor for over a year. I use it on my back daily and other areas of my body as needed from post workout soreness (usually a few times a week). My old roller was breaking down and the middle was bowing in. After my first "roll" with The Grid I was astounded with how firm it was, it easily pushed my rib heads back in alignment with my spine. It felt so good! The hallow plastic core provides the extra support and the foam is the right weight to provide pressure and padding. I believe that this is a quality product that will last for years to come and is well worth the price. As an added bonus, it is shorter than my previous roller, making it easier to pack, but still wide enough to provide the wide contact on my back, quads, hamstrings, and glutes.
A Truly Groovy Massage
This is a great alternative to the traditional foam core design which tends to break down in firmness after a couple of months of daily use.
The various shaped groove design offers different stimulation to muscles, particulary effective for trigger point therapy and daily muscle maintenance before and after workout.
The hollow opening is a circular shaped hard plastic material covered with the firm grooved shapes, a feature which contrasts the solid foam core of traditional rollers which eventually break down with use.
Lots of fun to use but could benefit by being longer; sometimes one finds herself rolling off the edges of the tube which is shorter than the traditional foam core. Although this may add comic relief to one's routine, it presents a challenge to the consumer.
Hurts so good!
I love my Grid. I bought it when I first started suffering from Piriformis Syndrome. It can be very painful and uncomfortable, so when I am working out on a regular basis it tightens up quickly. The workout to help relieve it, is sooo painful when you are doing it, but it really works that muscle out and so for the short term "uncomfortable" feeling I get on the Grid, the longterm benefit I receive from stretching out the muscle has saved me more pain in the long run. It could be a bit longer, I find myself falling off it sometimes if I'm not paying attention. But overall I think this is one of the best foam rollers on the market.
I love this thing! It is nice and firm. I like the different grid patterns and the fact it does not break down like most foam rollers.

Best roller ever!
I have tight shoulders and occasionally my piriformis acts up. This roller helps knead those areas and I feel immediate relief.

A must have product for every athlete
I absolutely love this foam roller. I use it for foam rolling after every run or bike ride or just anytime my legs feel tight or sore. It does a remarkable job and I love its smaller size so it's easy to travel with to the gym in my bag. Its also firm enough to get the job done. A great product and I recommend it to all fitness enthusiasts.

Decent replacement for a typical foam ro
I use this product for very tight IT bands. It has multiple densities which is supposed to help control how much "give" the roller has. As a whole it's a great device. I don't notice a significant difference compared to a regular foam roller. I worry about how long it will last as the plastic frame the foam is on does bend/flex under the portion of my 175 lb weight I put on the device.
Great product. My favorite foam roller.
Love it. Very firm however so maybe not for those new to rolling.
I use this daily and after each workout and I can't tell you how much it has helped with my muscle recovery. I use it in conjunction with the stick massager and instantly feel so much better!
Didn't do anything for me
This did nothing to stabilize my IT Band syndrome. My knee started hurting just as it did when I ran the last time (I had put in an extra day of rest as well). It wasn't clear how tight the band needed to be from any of the instructions.
Works well but should be a little longer
I use it regularly and am happy it won't deteriorate like a standard foam roller. However, it needs to be 3-6" longer for more convenient usage,especially by larger folks.
Must have for runners
A must have for runners. Great to travel with. Fits nicely in my carryon and you and stuff things inside the roller.

This is a big difference from my regular foam roller - it has really helped my marathon training!
The best roll I've ever used. Had used some friends and ordered my own. The BEST!
Well I'm not sure about that!
I try and use it after I run but it is not as easy to use as a foam roller.
Barb the runner
I needed to eliviate pain from my IT band muscles and found that rolling before and after my long runs conditioned my muscles and I had no further pain or problems!
Plus it feels good on all the other parts; back, gluts, calves...
Best roller ever!
Whenever I'm sore I use this product to help me ease my muscles.
Great for before and after workouts
Excellent for a small size roller. Great to travel.
I use it to relax tight muscles. It works very well.
great after a hard day ripping up the ski slopes
helps with those sore muscles after a ski day
