Prepare For Peak Performance

We work out with water bottles. We work out with foam rollers. Bringing both everywhere can be a hassle, so we combined the two. It’s that simple. So whether you roll out before yoga, your run or a hockey game, our water bottle sleeve will get your muscles loosened up and ready to go.

Reminder To Roll

Many people own foam rollers, but don't use them nearly as often as they should. We believe that if your foam roller comes with you to all your workouts, you will use it more often. When you use your foam roller more often you will perform better and stay injury free.

Loosen Up Pre Workout And Improve Flexibility

While stretching can be a great way to gain flexibility, it can only get you part way there. Foam rolling helps with myofascial release, which breaks up overly tense and adhering connective tissue in our body. When our tissues glide smoother, we can improve a stretch or activity as well as relieve tension from our joints.

Rehabbing Injuries

We know how hard injuries can be to deal with. Our foam roller will allow you to recover from injury and get back in the game quicker.

Exercises...

On the ground with bottlebark positioned under calf: For more intensity raise your body off the ground using your hands to put pressure on the calf muscle, cross one leg on top of the other For less intensity put more of your weight on your hands and glutes and less pressure on the calf muscle

Glutes

Sit on the foam roller and roll while seated For more intensity Cross one leg over the other so you are stretching the glute while rolling over it For less intensity Put more pressure onto your hands and feet which should relieve pressure off your glute

My on-the-go lifestyle always has me looking for spare room in my suitcase. Having to pack a water bottle plus a foam roller can take up valuable space. How awesome that Bottlebark now offers a convenient two-in-one solution!?
