Fitness Mad Vari-Massage Foam Roller – Review
Fitness Mad Vari-Massage Foam Roller
With so many foam rollers to choose from on the market, it can become quite confusing as to which ones are good and which to avoid. We all want good quality, effectiveness and value for money; that part is a given. But there are still many other aspects one must consider before buying a foam roller and this review is designed to help make your decision a little easier.
The Fitness Mad Vari-Massage Foam Roller claims to be suitable for beginners and advanced users of foam rollers, meaning that whatever your knowledge on rollers, this is a good choice. The Grid foam roller also claims to have no age restrictions.
Made by Fitness Mad, The Vari-Massage uses an EVA foam and hollow core with the idea of durability and a roller that will stand the test of time. Many foam rollers can become damaged easily but it appears The Fitness Mad Vari-Massage foam roller is beyond that. To prove their confidence in this product the makers have given it a 1 year warranty, this is great and means you have less worry about spending your hard earned money.
The Vari-Massage foam roller has 4 different designs of contours, each made up of different densities and patterns. They are designed to mimic the effect of fingertips, forearms, palms, thumbs and fingers. You can use each zone to target specific areas on your body that will apply the right amount of pressure on your targeted areas and muscles.
It is 13 inches long and 5 inches circular making it easy to take with you when traveling and easy to store. It is easy to use on most major muscle groups apart from shoulders and upper back, one should keep this in mind if seeking a foam roller specifically to treat that area of your body.
The different patterns and densities seem to do similar jobs with little variation of feel or massage quality. Also because the roller is smaller than usual, it can be difficult staying on the surface you need. I believe that areas like the calves require a softer foam material (personal preference.) priced at £19.99, which I believe is a fair price for this product as it does almost everything it claims.
So overall this product is great for travelling with but one can definitely benefit more from a longer foam roller. Just my humble opinion, I hope this article has helped!
Fitness mad have made a great looking hard wearing hollow foam roller which is perfect for trigger point therapy/myofascial release,
