Pilates Foam Roller Recommendation

Pilates Exercise with the Foam Roller
Foam rollers are great props for testing your stability, balance, and core strength. An essential/basic, intermediate, and even advanced level pilates workout can become quite challenging if a foam roller is incorporated!
Foam Roller Recommendations
There are many different types of foam rollers out on the market now. I personally still use my plain white full size (6″x 36″) foam roller. It is the cheapest on the market and has lasted me several years!
Starter Foam Roller
I would highly recommend this foam roller because it is durable and does exactly what you need.
If you want to invest in a more fancy version of a foam roller, I would do that after you have tried a foam roller first, to make sure it is worth your money.
High Quality Foam Roller By Stott Pilates
If you are interested in buying a foam roller that is made out of the “latest” materials and is considered top notch quality then try out the Stott pilates foam roller.
You even get to bypass the boring white color (for those of you that have to have everything in a color.)
Foam Roller Covers
The newest item on the market for foam rollers are foam roller covers. I have not tried them simply because I don’t mind my roller being white.
However, for those of you who want to dress up your roller, a cover is a nice option.
Beware: I do not know if the cloth will cause any slipping on the roller during some of the exercises. If any of you have roller covers I would love to hear from you!
