Different types of foam rollers

Oct 25, 2017 by


You may have seen different types of foam rollers at your friends’ homes or at the gym. Or you may be looking into getting one. But have you wondered why some look so different from each other?

Foam rollers are great if you are looking into giving yourself massages without breaking the bank. They are great for giving deeper massages by using your own body weight. Now that foam rollers are gaining popularity, foam rollers have different specifications that can tailor the massage experience depending on what you want to get out of it.

If you want to get into specific spots, you may have to look for ones that have smaller pressure points or buy a ball instead of a roller. If you have problem spots that you want it addressed more often, you might have to get a different foam roller that can deal with those spots well.

The way the foam is designed, the hardness and texture of the foam, the weight, and the size can make a difference in your experience with foam rollers.

Of course, with different specifications come different prices. Here are a few popular types of foam rollers from least expensive to most expensive:


45 cm Full Round – £9.59 (~USD$15) from Physique Management.
