Let me start by saying, when I first opened this up the helo Activator 3-in-1 Massage Ball, I was a little disappointed. It’s so lightweight that I worried it would disintegrate within a few uses. Think foam roller material and the size of a lacrosse ball and that’s pretty much the product. Fortunately, I discovered it’s surprisingly durable and does the job quite well . I tossed it in my gym bag and even passed it around with my bootcamp crew and it still looks like I just pulled it out of the box.
My husband, at times, teased that I looked like a scene in Jungle Book, with the bear scratching his back up against a tree, but it was totally worth the teasing. I could give my shoulder blades a little mini massage all on my own with the ball pressed up against the wall and I must say it felt amazing. It has several different surfaces to achieve different pressures – a smooth ball surface, a bumpy textured surface, and large knobs to really dig in. The different surfaces are supposed to help stimulate different muscles, but I primarily used it to dig into knots, and for that it was great.
Lightweight, compact, and functional, the helo has earned a place in my gym bag.
