What is the best foam roller?
Where do I buy a foam roller?
What size should I buy?
These are common questions I receive and I want to help you find the best foam roller! Foam rollers have amazing benefits and are a great addition to your Pilates routine.
A few benefits of foam rolling:
- improved circulation
- increased flexibility
- reduced muscle tension
- reduced chance of injury
- quicker post-workout recovery
- improved range of motion
I always recommend the 36″ length foam roller – this is what I use in all my foam roller workouts and it’s the best way to get the most out of your foam roller exercises.
And without further ado, my favorite foam rollers are listed below:
- From Balanced Body: The Balanced Body Foam Roller
- From Amazon: OPTP PRO-ROLLER Standard Density Foam Roller
- From Target: Gaiam Restore Total Body 36″ Foam Roller
You can also visit your local sporting goods store or Target to see what options they have in store – just make sure it’s supportive enough (you don’t want it too soft) and that it is 36″ long and about 6″ wide.
I hope this helps you find the best foam roller so you can enjoy the great stretches and exercises that come with it!
