Just like anyone else, we come across lots of fitness-related gadgets and tools. However, because we are personal trainers with plenty of experience, we get to road test most of them and so we know first hand which gadgets and tools are actually good value, and which ones are a waste of time.
Take the foam roller, for example. There are hundreds of foam roller suppliers around and most of them are, well, pretty useless. We know because we’ve tried out many of them. There are a few foam rollers that are worth buying and will last a long time These are the ones we buy and would recommend to you.

The TriggerPoint GRID Foam Roller worth the investment because this foam roller works really well and is virtually indestructible.
The Perform Better EVA Foam Roller is not quite as firm as the TriggerPoint GRID, so is great if you’re on the more sensitive side or are new to foam rolling. It holds its shape over time and is well made. We like the Perform Better brand for quality. It’s also less expensive than the TriggerPoint roller.
Thera Cane Massager: Blue. This is a great gadget for getting at those hard-to-reach spots that require a good massage to ease tension and make life more comfortable.
Perform Better Mini Bands
are great for lower body work. We use this brand.
