R8 Plus - Carol & Bret Stevens


“I like to use the R8 Plus before runs. After runs but which is awesome but I also like sitting in front of my TV and just sitting there, on the floor rolling, get the knots out from running 70 plus miles a week. It really comes in handy for my old muscles. I was one of the first to purchase the original (legacy, OG) R8 and it was so hard to get it on. You needed to be Arnold Schwarzenegger to get it open and around you leg and sometimes it would get stuck. The new one is so easy to get on there and adjust the tension. It’s like night and day. The new guy and the old guy. The new guy is so easy to use now it’s like amazing. I use to have to get a workout in just it get it on before and the new one just goes on there nice and easy."

“The R8 Plus is much easier to open than the original R8 and I like the fact that you can adjust it. More tension. Less depending on what you got going on. What you legs are feeling. It is definitely a lot easier. I like to use it before to wake the legs up and especially after a long run or something and just kind of massage them a little bit. Get them relaxed. Yeah. The rollers feel a bit better as opposed to the original R8. This thing works great with like my husband said old muscles and just helps get the kinks out. Get them nice and warmed up before and after. I like that you can take the R8 Plus with you anywhere. You can just throw it in the car and your'e good to go.”
