This practical workshop will teach you how to make the best use of your Foam Roller to keep you running for longer with less injuries.

What’s a Foam Roller?

A foam roller is a tool which allows you essentially to give yourself a deep tissue massage by loosening out adhesions and tightness in the body. The foam roller has been dubbed ‘the poor man’s massage’ tool but we think of it as the wise man’s/woman’s massage that you can do daily at home.

You know that lovely feeling in your legs the day after your sports massage when all the knots have been loosened out? Imagine being able to have that feeling of fresh legs every time you run. With a bit of practice on your foam roller you can have loose refreshed legs on every run and help prevent injuries.

About the workshop

This is a very practical workshop  where you will be using the foam roller a lot so please wear suitable clothing. We will demonstrate each exercise and everyone will then practice it on their foam roller.

Feedback from previous workshops

I found the work shop excellent. I had been using the foam roller previous to attending the workshop as I do suffer from injuries but I see now that I wasn’t using it effectively or getting the full range of benefit from it at all. 
I really learned a lot at the workshop and will be putting it into use on a daily basis to stay injury free while running. Anyone who runs would most definitely benefit from attending this workshop!

I have actually foam rolled every day since, generally about 3-4 areas. I’ve noticed a difference after working out and I’m not as stiff after a weights session and much looser during a run.  There was a lovely atmosphere at the work shop and I loved all the back ground information. You shared a real depth of knowledge and it meant I understood more about the physiology and why and how my muscles get tight and then how to relieve them with the roller.
