The Warbler has special ridges that connect with the contours of your body to hit all the right trigger points to loosen up knots and restore soft tissues and muscles back to their original form. Similar to a deep tissue massage, the high density cork material helps apply the right amount of pressure on stiff muscles to help aid in relaxing and releasing tension.
The Warbler’s dense cork material also allow it to maintain its shape— even after heavy use during yoga class or any fitness workout
Whereas foam rollers contain harmful chemicals that are not great for your skin or the planet, Cork is antimicrobial, with 98.6% of bacteria killed upon impact. Cork contains a waxy substance, called Suberin, which exists as a barrier between the cork and outside fragments such as dust or hair. It naturally repels bacteria from its surface, leaving the roller safe to use and beautifully smooth at all times.
Working out feels great on the body, but all that sweat can also be gross. It’s great to know that your roller won’t be storing those toxins.
Finally, an exercise product you don’t want to hide! Most foam rollers are ugly and just add clutter - you either try to hide them away or are forced to keep them in the open. The Warbler is a roller you actually want to show off, and for those with small spaces it can even double as a purposeful piece of furniture.
Living a sedentary lifestyle, becoming injured and even exercising, can culminate in fascia stiffening and tightening; this ultimately restricts and inhibits movement and performance.
Rolling with The Warbler not only loosens up knots, but it also restores your soft tissues and muscles back to their original form. In addition, doing so enhances and increases your range of motion. You will notice major improvements in flexibility and performance during your workouts!
Fascia gives your muscles adequate support and protection. When fascia tightens, irritation and inflammation will arise.
The Warbler increases circulation to your muscles and connective tissues. When there is improved circulation and availability of oxygen, muscle soreness is reduced and affected muscles recover more quickly.
Similar to deep tissue massage, foam rolling applies direct pressure on stiff muscles and knots, which subsequently aids in relaxing and releasing tension. Rolling over your muscles and trigger points creates an effect similar to what a massage therapist uses when working on your muscles.
Rolling does not only help in increasing range of motion, but it also helps you to stretch your muscles more efficiently. Taking part in rolling stretches muscles and breaks down scar tissues that can inhibit you from reaching your farthest stretch.
It helps muscles return to their original length as well, which leads to efficient and proper muscle function. When your muscles are properly stretched and function efficiently, the chances of getting injured are greatly reduced.
The Warbler calms tight muscles, stretches muscles and greatly improves body performance. It supports the correction of imbalances by calming the overused, stiff muscles, and promotes proper mobility. In turn, this strengthens the weak and underactive muscles.
The Warbler supports abs, plank and push-up exercises, as well as increases blood flow, which create the perfect stretch.
Perfect for all body types — whether you’re an avid yogi or need to simply stretch your back — The Warbler has anything you need taken care of.
As fitness enthusiasts and sustainability advocates, we created 42 Birds as a way to solve some of rollings greatest pain points, while bringing awareness to cork. We care deeply about the environment and wanted to build a company that would promote the use of sustainable materials.
Once we tried cork, we immediately knew that it was something the wellness and fitness community needed to adopt. Cork also contributed to our desire of maintaining minimalist, design-driven homes that are not littered with unattractive foam rollers. An added plus for us was not needing extra storage to hide these items —rather, getting to put them on display!
Our mission is greater than just ourselves or a single company; it is to make a difference in people’s lives. The reason that The Warbler will make a difference in people’s lives is twofold: sustainability and performance. With this product, people are given the opportunity to not only roll out their sore muscles and self-massage with ease, but also to play a part in saving the cork forests and the diverse ecosystems that depend on them.
We can’t thank you enough for checking out our project and helping us make The Warbler a reality.
We know not everyone will be able to support us with a pledge, so even if you can’t give a dollar or purchase one at this time, you can help us spread the word on Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, Instagram and anywhere else you can think of!
