HOW MUCH WATER/ICE DO I NEED TO PLACE INSIDE THE ROLLER?

WHY SHOULD I BUY THIS INSTEAD OF A CHEAP FOAM ROLLER?
The F.I.T. Roller provides a ﬁrmness that many rolling advocates crave. Some foam rollers are cheap and over time the foam will compress and be less effective. In addition, some foam rollers are porous and therefore difﬁcult if not impossible to sanitize and keep clean. Traditionally, some foam rollers are very limited in their function as opposed to the F.I.T. Roller. Not only can the F.I.T. Roller be used for deep massage and self-myofacial release, but the F.I.T. Roller allows you to control the temperature of the roller as you roll. This allows you to warm up or cool down your muscles as you roll in one easy step, instead of having to ice, then roll, or heat, then roll, in two or more steps.
WHAT SURFACE SHOULD I USE THE F.I.T. ROLLER ON?
The F.I.T. Roller can be used on any ﬂat non-slippery surface free of obstructions, such as a carpet or rug, gym mat, or hard surface ﬂoor. However, the degree to which the roller is controlled may vary depending upon the surface used. If rolling on a slippery surface, Fire & Ice Therapy recommends using the padded sleeve or the travel sleeve to create better grip between the roller and the surface.
