The first time I got to use the ROLL Recovery R8 was at mile 23 of the Antelope Canyon 55K. I was so impressed with the product that two weeks later I was on the wait list for one, and a little over a month later it showed up on my doorstep.
I’ve been in love ever since.
Founded in Boulder, Colorado, by endurance athletes Jeremy and Adrianna Nelson, the R8 roller allows athletes to quickly get in a deep-tissue massage that helps reduce inflammation after workouts, breakup muscle adhesions and stimulate blood circulation. Gone are the days of hopping on a foam roller immediately after a hard workout. Instead I usually grab my R8 and roll out my legs while sitting on the couch!
While the R8 hasn’t completely eliminated my time on a foam roller (I still use one to hit my glutes, hip flexors and upper body), it has certainly minimized the time I spend on one … and that’s something I can appreciate. The product is also incredibly durable and portable, making it easy to bring to races.
The ROLL Recovery R8 has become a staple in my training. It’s an incredibly convenient way to get in a quick and effective massage after a hard workout. Check out their website for more information.
