Tyler Clutts - "It’s no secret that NFL Fullbacks take a pounding. I use a lot of techniques to keep healthy during the season and foam rolling is definitely one of them. I’ve been using The Morph since training camp and I love this thing. I always have it with me in my backpack so I can use it as soon as I get to the locker room. And it’s been awesome to have at away games. We have a lot of long flights so I use it as soon as we get to the hotel, and I’ve been feeling great on game day. What can I say, I’m excited about The Morph!"

Barbara Nwaba - "As a heptathlete my body is constantly being put under a great amount of tension and strain. Training for seven different events, six days a week, requires a lot of maintenance in order for me to give my best. As I gear up for the 2016 Olympic Trials, my top priority is to train hard and stay healthy. Foam rolling with The Morph is a huge advantage in my mission to stay at peak performance. It easily packs away with my seven different pairs of event shoes and allows convenience before, during and after practice."

Chad Melton - "The Morph is a game-changer for me. It has redefined mobility by making foam rolling convenient. I do heavy Olympic lifting, gymnastics, and intense conditioning sessions multiple times a day, seven-days a week. CrossFit is as much about mobility as it is about strength and foam rolling has been a critical piece of my routine for years, but only when I could find a decent roller at the various gyms I train at. I expect a lot out of my gear, and The Morph has been the perfect addition to my kit. I can take care of my body when, where, and how I want to. This is going to be a huge advantage for me."

Alexandra Duma - "Research shows that foam rolling can have a significant impact on recovery and performance.  As a sports medicine specialist and an individual always on the go due to the nature of my work and active lifestyle, I could not be more thrilled about this product.  Durable, great surface, and easy to transport. I love this foam roller and highly recommend it to my patients!"

Dan Lin - "My assignments usually take me to the fringes and I always try to keep pushing my own limits to get the best shots possible. Whether its out at sea or in remote villages, I need to be completely self-sustainable when I'm traveling. A big part of that involves taking care of my body, so the Morph has become a crucial part of my travel pack. It allows me to stay in top physical condition so that I can do my best work."

Brazyn Life has an ethos: boldly, unabashedly, fearlessly live life – A BRAZYN LIFE.   

Brazyn Life aims to give you the tools you need to accomplish your goals. By providing products that are both innovative and dedicated to mobility, we cater to the lifestyle needs of anyone that takes their health seriously – from the professional athlete to the weekend warrior, the young surfer to the retired yogi. At home or on the go, Brazyn Life wants to keep you in your peak physical condition so you can live life the way you’re meant to…Brazyn-ly!
The word “brazen” is defined as such: 1. bold and without shame. 2. made of brass

Synonyms for brazen are as follows: Be defiant, be unrepentant, stand one’s ground, be unabashed, audacious, brash, brassy, nervy, cocksure, impudent, wise

Adapting the “e” of brazen into a stylized “Y”, the BRAZYN LIFE logo seeks to capture the essence of the word as it occurs to us: An athlete at the peak of a mountain, triumphant at his recent display of grit and determination, his arms are stretched to the heavens, fingers spread, hands slightly cupped to show both ownership and gratitude over his recent feat. He is like a satellite dish – graciously accepting into himself the greatness of his foreground (the experience born out by his efforts) so that he, in turn, can share that gratitude with the world.

This posture is the natural human reaction to a great accomplishment. It’s Rocky on top of the steps, it’s a gymnast after sticking a landing, it’s a runner who has just set a personal best, it’s the adventurous traveler standing in front of a natural wonder, the yogi’s sun pose, the symbol for a touchdown, the arena of fans after witnessing a buzzer beater … It’s the innate physiological response to someone living a BRAZYN LIFE.
 
 April 26th, 2007 – Spokane, WA
We open the door to our extended stay hotel and see a bottle of cheap sparkling wine and some chocolate covered strawberries. We laughed. True, my wife and I had just gotten married a few days earlier.  She thought it would be funny to call and tell the hotel we were on our honeymoon. In a way it was, but Spokane was not our first choice for our after-nuptial excursion. We were here for another reason altogether. 

I had just finished my 3rd year in the NFL, and I was recovering from my 3rd surgery in 5 years. This time it was my spine. I had herniated two lumbar discs playing for the Saints. I first felt a twinge of low-back pain coming out of training camp and fought through it as long as I could.  I made it 2.5 months.   The years of pounding I put on my body finally caught up with me. For weeks I had slept on the living room floor, because it was the only surface hard enough. Then I would get up, scarf painkillers, and go into the Saints' facility. I wasn’t going to let pain get in the way of my dreams. I’d go into the training room, lie to the coaches and trainers that my back was feeling better, and go out and grit through practices and games. It wasn’t sustainable. As the Saints went on to the NFC Championship game that year, lifting the organization and the Katrina devastated city from despair, I was laying at home recovering from back surgery, wondering if I’d play another down of football.

A couple of months later, I found myself in Spokane just days after getting married.  I went to meet with some non-conventional physical therapists. One was a renowned Pilates guru that taught me how a simple foam roller could help to fix and maintain my back. I’d used the foam roller many times before, but now I was a devotee. A couple simple stretches, some stabilizing ab work, and a few minutes massaging was all I needed to add to my routine to get my focus back on football and not on recovery. I played 5 more seasons and I used the foam roller the entire way.
 
But my relationship with the foam roller was love-hate.  Foam rollers are bulky and annoying to carry around. I wanted something that I could take with me; whether it was to an away-game, the gym, or when I was traveling around the globe with my wife in the offseason. The idea for The Morph was born and I set out to create the worlds best foam roller.

The Morph was inspired by a personal wish, but it didn't take me long to realize that this product could be a great tool for anyone looking to increase their mobility and live a healthier life.  It is my goal and dream for The Morph to become the most relied self-maintenance tool for athletes, fitness enthusiast, and mobility seekers.  

I'm impassioned to help people accomplish their fitness goals through innovative, high-quality, and convenient products.  The Morph emphatically meets all three criteria, but if you think of this product as nothing else, think of it as a foam roller (that works just like the ones you’ve seen at the gym), but when you’re not using it, it takes up a fraction of the space. Trust me, when you fall in love with foam rolling (which you will), this is a feature you will be thrilled to have. 

Be Bold.  Be Brazyn.

Risks and challenges

We are committed to getting The Morph to your door, and have already done a lot of work to prepare for production. Most of our tooling and manufacturing process is already in place. As with any manufacturing ramp up, however there is a risk that we encounter delays in creating the remaining tooling necessary to mass produce The Morph. There is also a risk that our various suppliers change as we increase demand, which could also result in delays.

As our earliest customers, we are eternally grateful for your support, so we will work diligently to meet and overcome any challenges that may arise. Of course, you will be the first to know, and you will know how we're fixing them. We have a lot of experience dealing with manufacturers and suppliers, so we know what it takes to create a high quality product in a reasonable amount of time.
