Kirsty Gallacher is super fit

To recover from her intense fitness sessions, Kirsty likes to use a foam roller, explaining: "As I increase my running, I’ll have to do more stretching or I’ll end up injured."

A foam roller can help with muscle tightness and inflammation, and is an effective tool to use after your workouts.
