February highlights a favorite product of our newly signed stellar Pro Triathlete… Matt Russell! Matt is an incredibly gifted athlete and a great guy to boot! He takes time out of his day to keep you in-the-know about triathlon products, training strategies, and more through his blog and website.
This month, Matt shares his enthusiasm and usage tips for the Trigger Point Grid Foam Roller with our Destination Kona family and customers!
TRIGGER POINT COMPANY BACKGROUND:
Trigger Point Performance Therapy is a company founded by biomechanical specialist, Cassidy Phillips. Phillips’ personal diagnosis and struggle with Fibromyalgia prompted countless hours of hands-on research in a variety of bodywork modalities. His knowledge and research resulted in the development of a line of products that “mirror the feeling of the human hand” for myofascial release.
Overwhelming positive response and appreciation for these products have been recognized worldwide by athletes of all types and have been repeatedly featured in top fitness magazines and talk show segments.
WHAT MATT HAS TO SAY:
Use before you exercise. It will increase blood flow to help keep your muscles loose.
Convenient & Effective:
Great for use in between massage therapy appointments. You can use it whenever!
Helps muscles from knotting up while reducing the risk of injury.
We totally agree with Matt and encourage you to take this bad boy roller for a spin. The Grid is constructed of durable EVA foam and qualifies as “Green” due to the hollow body using less foam than other competitor’s models. Three different density zones are featured on one single 13” long tube! Choose from low and flat, medium and tubular, or high and firm sections that simulate different types of human massage touch. This roller is great for all types of people and athletes for a number of uses: pre-workout for warming up muscles, post-workout for lengthening muscles, or incorporated into workout to challenge core muscles.
It’s the perfect size to throw in the car and tote to the gym, yoga, or even the park. And it lasts, and lasts, and lasts…. No breakdown. Now all you have to do is choose between understated black and attention demanding orange!
