Whether standing, sitting, kneeling or even lying in bed, you can use foam rollers to build strength and flexibility. And what’s more, they are fun to use.

These functional challenges enhance your balance reactions and strengthen the critical stabilizing, core muscles often overlooked in traditional exercise.
