TriggerPoint, the maker of recovery and massage products for the athletic and personal wellness markets, encourages everyone to learn about the benefits and importance of foam rolling on International Foam Rolling Day, May 11, 2021.

“Foam rolling offers many benefits not only for athletes, but also for people who work from home and spend extended periods of time seated,” explains Michael Cummings, director of education at TriggerPoint. “Research shows that foam rolling as part of your overall wellness and recovery routine, not just after or before performing exercise, can help reduce injury, improve flexibility, range of motion and posture, and help boost blood circulation.

“TriggerPoint’s mission is to educate everyone and spread the word about the importance of foam rolling to help athletes and non-athletes alike live better by moving better,” he adds. 

On International Foam Rolling Day, TriggerPoint has a full day of exclusive live programming and is partnering with Fitness Trainers who will lead foam rolling workouts on Instagram Live on TriggerPoint’s Instagram profile.
