CONTRAINDICATIONS: You can use the F.I.T. Roller on any muscle which you are able to treat through the rolling process, however, it is recommended you avoid certain areas such a joints, bones, neck and your lower back. These areas are more sensitized to pain and may require further treatment from a medical professional or sports therapist.

If you have spinal injuries or degeneration, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, take blood thinning medication, are pregnant, have joint replacements, suffer from fibromyalgia or rheumatic diseases, consult with your doctor before use to decide if this product is right for you.
DIRECTIONS: Twist open end cap of roller and add no more than a capful of hot/warm water inside to heat up your roller. The surface of the roller will become hot/warm and take on the temperature of the water. Always check the surface temperature of the roller before use and wait until surface temperature is comfortable to use. Do not fill roller past 1⁄2 way point. To prevent leakage, do not overfill. Replace cap. Do not over-tighten caps. You may also use the roller without hot water. Water may get caught in the threads of the cap or tube; do not mistake this for leaks. Simply use a cloth or towel to dry when done.
For cryotherapy add no more than a capful of ice and/or cold water. The surface of the roller will become cold and take on the temperature of the water/ice. Always check the surface temperature of the roller before use and wait until surface temperature is comfortable to use. Do not fill past 1⁄2 way point. To prevent leakage, do not overfill. Replace cap. Do not over-tighten caps. You may also use the roller without water or ice.
The F.I.T. Roller comes with a carrying sleeve which you may choose to put on the Roller after filling and before use. The sleeve will add some extra cushion and insulation to the Roller, which may make rolling more comfortable for you.
When you are finished rolling, unscrew the end cap and carefully empty the water/ice. Dry your roller and the threads to reduce hard water build-up and replace the end cap. Do not over-tighten cap. Place F.I.T. Roller in carrying sleeve and store when not in use.
To roll, apply moderate pressure to a specific muscle or muscle group using the roller and your bodyweight. Roll slowly. When you find areas that are tight or sore, pause for several seconds and relax. Roll out those areas until you feel the muscle release. We recommend that you view our instructional videos before use.
USE CAUTION: If an area is too painful to apply direct pressure, shift the roller and apply pressure to the surrounding areas. Work gradually to loosen and release the entire area. You may be sore the next day in areas that you have worked on.
