I love using my Fit Buddy on my neck. I love the density and how it gets into the muscle. I have had problems with my ankles and feet. Fit Buddy wakes up my feet, activates my feet and I get a ton of stretches for my feet. It works wonders when my feet are tight when I wake up in the morning and helps me to activate all of the muscles in my feet that don't usually get activated, even my big toe. I can get a heck of a big toe stretch and dorsiflexion. It is great for the IT band, hip flexors and glutes. I use it before training and after training 3 times a day and recommend it for all athletes no matter what sport. Fit Buddy is small and lightweight so I can travel with it whenever I go to games.

Before you play tennis, use the Fit Buddy so the body is more relaxed and able to move without forcing the muscle.

My name is Melvin Ross and I just used Fit Buddy. I was having pain with my neck and when I used it, it was amazing the pain was gone. I have not been able to rest for the past 3-4 days and now my shoulder fells like a new shoulder and my neck doesn't hurt anymore. my shoulder is feeling great and I can move my neck. I feel great! I feel outstanding!

This is an affordable, multiple purpose tool. It mimics various orthopedic devices-conveniently rolled into one. It encourages proper lumbar and cervical curves and works on the, equally important, soft tissue (ligaments, tendons and fascia). With teen gamers and all ages texting with frequency, forward head carriage is a BIG issue. Encouraging the cervical curve....As a chiropractor I say "Yes, please!" Sitting and sedentary habits are pervasive. I love that you're getting people to work on soft tissue and fascia regularly. Fascia is the connective tissue that literally connects everything from head to toe. Relieving trigger points and restrictions aids in whole-body health. Get this to the masses!!! Go, go, go.

I’m a leadership consultant whose lifestyle includes a heavy dose of travel and physical activity.

I am an aging athlete and still compete in foot racing. At age 50, I regularly break 5 minutes for one mile at track meets. The secret to getting old and staying fast is to avoid injury. Rolling out sore muscles every day is key to avoiding injury. I have added Fit Buddy to the foam roller, golfball roller and lacrosse ball for massaging muscles. I love the feel of the wood with Fit Buddy. Before and after workouts, we "roll out" and stretch. My very popular Fitness Boot Camp, Peachtree Road Boot Camp also uses Fit Buddy. Fit Buddy is one of the tricks that allow us to work out like animals all week without getting hurt.

I am using my Fit Buddy for plantar fasciitis and it gives the best stretch I have ever had. I use it several times a day and am very happy with it.
-Bruce Ryan. Atlanta, GA
I have been absolutely delighted with my Fit Buddy. As a very active “senior”(running, swimming, biking, etc) it has enhanced my flexibility, stamina and recovery time. In my daily stretches the deep tissue massage for my tight calves and hamstrings, chest opening and relief for my Achilles tendinitis has been terrific. Afterwards, I have found hardly any soreness, tightness in muscles and joints, and it has improved overall circulation. As a healer I plan to recommend Fit Buddy to all my friends and clients. Thank you for a wonderful tool!

I love to use my Fit Buddy for my lower back pain. I place it under my lower back and it brings me relief. It also helps with my sciatica and to relieve the pressure I feel from my pinched nerve. I use it on my feet after I walk, go for a run or wear high heels. When my neck feels tight, I like to use it to help with the tightness.
-Mary S, Milton, GA
I like to use my Fit Buddy to help me get rid of headaches. I roll back in forth with it under the back of my head and neck and it helps every time.

I am a runner and use my Fit Buddy to help with plantar fasciitis and to stretch my tight foot muscles.
-Bob, Milton, GA
I suffer calf and foot cramps on a regular basis at night. But since I've started stretching my feet with my Fit Buddy I have not had a single problem with night time cramps. While I watch TV before bed I simply walk carefully in all directions across the Fit Buddy stretching my achilles tendon as well as the metatarsals all across my foot and on the arch. It takes less than five minutes and completely prevents any night time cramps. I love it!
-Robin Keeler, Atlanta, GA
I am a former long distance runner and current tennis player. I stand on my Fit Buddy while drying my hair (multi tasking). It loosens up my calf muscles and stretches the bottoms of my feet. They feel much better when I use my Fit Buddy!
-Lora Schipper, Atlanta, GA
I use my Fit Buddy to get the tightness out of my lower back after a hard work out or long tennis match. I also use the coordinating stomach techniques to enhance the back techniques with the Fit Buddy and it really releases the tightness and aches and pains! It is also great for opening the chest. That one is uncomfortable at first and then gets easier as the minutes go on and by the end, I feel so opened up and refreshed!!
Alyson Rogers, Atlanta, GA
As a hair stylist I am on my feet all day long. I like standing on the pointed end of my Fit Buddy and stretching my achilles tendon and calves and also walking on it. The Fit Buddy is such a tension reliever for my feet, calves and back and makes a big difference with how my body feels.
-Van Wynne, Atlanta, GA
I am an avid bicyclist and have rode "Ride the Rockies" for 9 years. At the peak of my training I will be in the saddle 5-8 hours per day. This year I got a Fit Buddy about 90 days before the ride and used it in my stretching routine before and after each ride. I noticed a significant improvement in my riding fatigue, particularly in my lower back and shoulders. I use it every day now!
-Mike Seig, Ft. Collins, CO
The Fit Buddy is a great personal self care tool, I use it personally and with my therapy clients. It helps maintain the alignment that we work to achieve on the therapy table and gives my clients an "at home mini therapist" to use between sessions. Excellent and portable too!

Hi my name is Winnie Ross, I just used the Fit Buddy. I was having pain in my right knee, I actually have an injury in it. Fit Buddy helped my shins, my calves and the pain in my knee is gone.

I suffered migraines for years...Now that I am using my Fit Buddy I honestly can't tell you the last time I've had a migraine. The second I start getting a headache I lay on my head and neck on it. It's been awesome. I love it!
-Paula, Atlanta, GA
Since acquiring the Fit Buddy, I try to use it daily. I find that this product is incredible! As a physical therapist and lover of all sports, I know the importance of stretching and the Fit Buddy has made this easier for me. I love the wooden material from which it is made. It is a delicate texture that makes it very enjoyable for stretching my achilles tendon which I have to stretch frequently since being diagnosed with chronic achilles tendinitis. Thank you Fit Buddy for making my days less painful.
-Leslie Gonzalez, Miami, FL
I use to suffer from neck pain. I spend too much time sitting in front of a computer and my posture is not the best. Just at that time I heard about the Fit Buddy and since then I have been using it everyday before I go to bed. It relaxes me physically and mentally. At the same time it is a time I use to forget about everything. With some music I use it for 15 minutes. Additionally, I use it for my back and feet. Since I acquired the Fit Buddy my neck feels so much better in just a few minutes, I can totally relax. Thank you LiLiFu for offering such a great product.
-Ligia Gonzalez, Miami, FL
I love my Fit Buddy! It really helps with my sore feet. After a day of hard tennis I can just roll my feet on the Fit Buddy. It just takes a few minutes and my feet feel much better instead of feeling worse and worse by the week. So thanks a lot!
-Julia Shimaoka, Atlanta, GA
I bought my Fit Buddy when I tried it at the gym and I never buy things just after doing a demo but I really like the breathing. I am a runner and I have a lot of stress and upper tension in my upper back and I really liked it. It helped me by just opening things up. It is a combination of things I have tried in the past but all in one device. It is easy to use, very simple and something I am comfortable sharing with my husband who has herniated discs. Thank you!
Fit Buddy opens things up with my shoulders and moves things around better than I've done with anything else in yoga and I can't wait to include this in my mat practice.
-Candace Reimer, Southwest airlines, Atlanta, GA
This is something I can implement into my training sessions, I love it. Dawn showed me a ton of upper back, cervical, thorasic spine, all of those areas, all of those knots and some really cool ways to use it to loosen up everything and I think I am going to be able to implement it in at least one or two different movements and stretches that will be able to help all of the clients. It's really cool. My favorite part is that a lot of our clients travel a lot and this will fit right into their bags, for airport luggage and it's great. I love the density of it too. It's super thick and gets a little deeper than foam rollers and it's a really cool product.
-Cody Parks, Fitness professional, Atlanta, GA
Hi, I'm Joy, I'm 46 and a runner and what I love about the Fit Buddy is that you can really really get into your feet, your plantar and undo all of the damage that 20 miles of pavement does to your feet. It's a great stretch.

Fit Buddy has changed my life! I am a on my feet all day long as a hair stylist at Salon V in Buckhead. I use Fit Buddy on my feet, on my back and on my hamstrings.
