If you’ve read the title of this post and asked “Why do people need foam rollers?” or “What’s the big deal?” The answer you will probably receive from anyone who has ever used one is “They’re AWESOME!” The next question on your lips will be, “Awesome for what, though?”

Foam rollers have been around for a while, and are not only for extreme athletes, professional sports stars or just another tool recommended by your physiotherapist. You may have seen one at your friend’s house, at your local gym, or heard someone talking about it on TV.

Rollers are excellent tools for Self-Myofascial release, or to regular people, self-massage. The benefits range from preventing common injuries, improvement in flexibility and after you’ve finished, the end result leaves you less stressed and relaxed because they also release tension in any connective tissue. They may even be able to save you some money by reducing visits to your massage therapist! Sounds amazing, right?

If you’ve ever gone to buy one though, you’ve probably been in awe of the variety of Foam Roller products out there. Some have odd designs and patterns and some even have intrusive bumps on them. Then you have to pick which size and density you need!

The reality is; it can be difficult to decide which one suits your needs. So here’s our guide to help you decide where to start off, or if you’re already experienced in the art of rolling, what could be next for you.
