About this project
What Is A Vibrating Foam Roller?
Our roller takes the deep tissue massage of traditional foam rollers and adds the benefits of vibration for a better, deeper, more penetrating treatment. We've upgraded the foam roller.
A Smarter, More Effective Recovery Tool
Traditional rollers are used to release muscle tightness and work out knots or trigger points. We’ve taken this a step further by adding high-tech vibration which has shown to increase blood flow & reduce pain.
We’ve added power to foam rolling with a long-lasting (up to 11 hrs) lithium ion battery that delivers 3 levels of vibration in an 18 inch roller for travel or a 36 inch roller for full-body work.
Faster Recovery For Better Performance
Everyone deserves the best therapies available to feel good and perform at our highest potential. RollingFWD's mission is to help all of us (professional athletes, weekend warriors, fitness & wellness enthusiasts) take care of our bodies and continue to do the activities we love!
What Athletes Say
Jamie Connor, 2016 Olympic Pole Vault Hopeful: "RollingFwd’s vibrating foam roller invigorates my muscles before a workout and relaxes them at the same time so I can be at my best during training or competition. Since I’ve added vibration to my rolling routine, I spend less time on recovery and more time perfecting what I do best—pole vaulting."
Will Jurkowski, Professional Triathlete: "The RollingFWD vibration increases the efficacy (of rollers), better releasing tightness in my hips from hours spent in the saddle and running. In any endurance sport, training stress is limited by an athletes ability to recover from that stress. The RollingFWD roller has become a critical piece of my recovery and therefore of my training."
Every Part Of The Body Feels Better
From head to toe, every part of the body benefits and feels better including the neck, traps, lats, glutes, IT band, quads, spine, sacrum, down to the feet.
We've worked for nearly three years in partnership with top product designers to develop the highest quality vibrating roller and therapy experience. We've tested more than six prototypes (reflected in the product images you see) with athletes and doctors.
Now we need your help to bring these vibrating rollers to the world. $30,000 covers our initial manufacturing run and enables us to get the roller into people's hands. By contributing to our campaign, you'll be casting your vote for access to better tools for better recovery.
When you pledge, you have the choice of receiving the 18 inch roller or 36 inch roller or a combination pack of the 2 rollers or 4 rollers. See our rewards at the right. If you don't see the combination you want, email us at Leigh@RollingFWD.com.
Who Is RollingFWD?
I’m Mark, a life-long athlete and reluctant physical therapy junkie. I'm also the founder and CEO of RollingFWD, based in Boulder, CO. I love cycling, skiing, rock climbing and everything the Colorado lifestyle has to offer. As a result, my body has taken a beating over the years and nowadays I really feel the effects of epic rides and powder days. But, I refuse to give up my active lifestyle!
That’s why I’ve dedicated myself to producing a new generation of foam rollers with vibration—a technology that has helped my body recover, relax and feel better. My goal is to bring this technology to others to help them continue rolling forward in their active lifestyles too.

Risks and challenges
We’ve done our very best to forecast demand and create a solid production plan. As with any new venture, there may be some bumps along the way. Some of our initial risks include manufacturing delays (the tooling process itself), unexpected shortages of components, and the size of initial orders.
If we hit any of those bumps along the way, you'll be the first to know. We'll inform you with a current status, why it's happening and how we're going to fix it. If at any point you have questions about our risks or challenges, give us a shout - we're here to talk with you. Contact me at Mark@RollingFWD.com.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
