Evolution of Foam rolling: We found these rollers at a local gym that specializes in performance athletes. You can see how dirty and deformed the foam rolls get from daily routine use by strong, heavy bodies.
The Travel Roller pictured also looks a little worn but as you can also see, maintains its shape, and the cover is washable and can be cleaned anytime.
The most impressive stat?
The Foam Rolls pictured are just under a year old
The Travel Roller pictured has been in that gym for THREE YEARS!
That kind of durability saves you money, works your muscles, and is why Travel Roller is the worthwhile purchase.
