By | November 25, 2015

I understand that because I did a good bit of research before I bought mine. I purchased the TriggerPoint Grid foam roller about a year ago and am very pleased with its quality and effectiveness. With that said I want to give you a brief review of this product so you can see if you think its the right one for you.

Product Overview

This roller’s design is patented. It features a grid-like multi-density EVA foam design on the outside. The inside is composed of a strong and rigid plastic that keeps its shape round shape. The foam exterior along with its strong plastic hollow core can support up to 500lbs.


Rollers can loosen up the muscles, improving flexibility, and blood circulation and decreasing muscle and bone pains. These improvements can even to better balance and even smoother movements, such as the someone’s manner of walking.

This roller’s grid foam design helps better knead the muscles, relieving tension and pain.

My Thoughts (summary=it works)

I have used many other rollers in the past, but the TriggerPoint Grid foam roller is the first one I purchased myself. The difference between this one and others, such as solid foam roller or rollers that have a smooth surface, is big.

I’ve seen how solid foam rollers get worn out all too fast. They tend to get worn out faster and lose their round shape. The hollow design of the TriggerPoint roller helps keep this from happening and it does a good job. I’ve had mine for about a year now and its shape is round as round can be.

The other thing I love about this product compared to some others is its grid-like foam design. It may not make a huge difference but it does make a difference in the ability to loosen up the muscles. It does a better job at massaging the muscles than the smooth surface rollers that are out there.


If you are looking for a great quality foam roller that is extremely effective in relieving muscle tension and giving your body a nice massage then you should at the very least consider the TriggerPoint Grid foam roller. Its available at what I would say is a decent price on Amazon.com for $27 to $40. The price ranges depending on the color you choose.

Oh and also there are a couple different sizes available. The one I have is the 13in original but there is also:

    The Triggerpoint Grid foam roller sounds excellent. The price is reasonable too.

    I would like to know if this could somehow be used to straighten my legs out? I have abit of problem that when my knees touch my ankles don’t It’s not really noticeable to look at for others but I’m very aware of it. Also I’ve got an instep (I think that’s what it’s called) where the inside of the heels of my shoes wears down instead of the outside. I would do anything to have straighter legs – it makes me very self concious when I walk!

      Often times muscle tension is the cause of bad posture. So if muscle tension is the cause of your problems, which it could be, then yes this roller could indeed fix your problem with time. But I couldn’t really tell you for sure because I don’t know the cause. It could be worth a try though
