I'll admit it, I'm a running addict! But, when I want to get a lot of miles in, my legs and muscles won't let me. I've tried foam rolling, hours of stretching, and using stick rollers, but nothing works as great as a CTM Band to help eliviate sore muscles, keep them loose, and eliminate lactic acid in the muscles. I highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a new way to help heal sore muscles without taking days off of their workout schedule to rest or heal.
I have one of each size and use them both regularly on myself and my athletes for tight muscles and for warm-up before exercise
So I've been using floss bands for years and wrapping them over golf balls/lacrosse balls which was always really annoying to do. Also keeping the ball in the exact location I wanted it to be in was also a pain at times. Enter the CTM Band and that issue is gone. I can not only get the ball right where I want it, I can have up to 4 in different locations! My flossing outcomes with clients have been much better since incorporating the CTM Band into my arsenal and I plan on using it for a very long time!
Foam rollers, massagers, The Stick, I have all kinds of recovery tools. None of them have alleviated my tight calves like the CTM Band. Runners should absolutely have this in their recovery tool kit. Price to efficacy is unbelievable.
The bands are great! We work with dancer with tight calves and quads. It's a quick and effective tool to use so they can get instant relief .
I use it on myself and on the college athletes I work with for both muscle soreness and tightness as well as for warm up before workouts!! It’s great!!
This tool has been greatly helpful for both my husband and myself in dealing with IT Band issues that stretching and foam rolling alone did not solve. Highly recommend that you try it out!
I bought this some weeks ago, and since I am from Brasil, my friend brought to me in the christmas, i already used and REALLY like the outcome. I only used the small one in my calf, in the upper lateral side, almost in the m. soleus. I will use this week in my m. quadriceps, the larger one and see what will happen. Thank you very much for your products and willing to improve the way people think and use their equipments and muscles. Have a good 2019!
Great flossing bands for myofascial release and support. Love the bigger one. If only there was a library of videos it would be even more awesome.
I have used and recommended compression/mobility bands in my practice for several years now. I'm a fan particularly for self treatment protocols. The CTM band provides a a very useful renovation in an already helpful product. The CTM band allows for a greater diversity of use and works particularly well for tack and floss mobilization. I have found great success in using it for calf, quad, hamstring and forearm related issues. The CTM band allows a person to be more precise with his or her self mobilizations and gives a person a lot more options for self treatment than the traditional compress/mobility band. Great product!
The CTM band is great for athletes who are often on the road. I use it all the time at home for my calves and hamstrings, but when traveling, it's easier to throw this in the bag than a foam roller! Well-made, thoughtful product.
My son has chronic tightness from running competitive high school XC and this band is the most useful tool at managing his symptoms and pain. Its easy to use, is self directed and provides deep tissue relief that makes a daily difference. Cant say enough about how this band has helped!!!
I had trouble with a right calf muscle being tight after each run the CTM band has really been helpful....It has worked the tightness out of my calf muscle....I use before and after my runs.
I do lots of running and biking,from time to time I have patellafemoris inflammation,with Ctm band on 2 mnts plus stretch and move my pain/inflammation was reduced and now I’m fine. I recommend Ctm band and thank you.
Been using it for months on myself and my adolescent competitive gymnasts and we have seen great benefits from it! Definitely recommend this product to every athlete!
I'm a stubborn runner who won't lay off. I love a good recovery too and this one meets all the marks. It's easy to use, it offers very timely relief. Sometimes I use it before a run, but love to use it a few hours after a hard effort. It really loosens everything back up. It's fantastic
I battled plantar fasciitis for about 15 months. I got new shoes, bought expensive inserts, stretched and foam rolled. I’m sure all of that helped, but within a few weeks after trying the CTM Band, I was suddenly without pain for the first time in well over a year and it’s still gone 3 months later. Thank you!
Sehr empfehlenswert zur Regeneration und vom dem Training/ Wettkampf....hilft mir meine steinharte Wadenmuskulatur zu lockern.
Kauftip, auch wenn der Zoll ein bißchen extra kostet zahlt es sich aus!
My background: life long runner, and currently a cross country coach. I recommend this product to my athletes and use the ctm band myself most days.
I have been using the ctm band for over a year now, and i have really seen the benefits of it. The ctm band provides the same benefits as your foam roller but is especially helpful for alleviating tightness and soreness in muscles that are hard to hit with a foam roller. I have found that the ctm band is far superior to foam rollers in treating the calves, hamstrings, and hip flexors, as those are seas that are hard to place enough weight on with a foam roller.
I have recommended this product to some of the athletes I coach and they have seen the benefits as well. Lingering tightness or soreness that athletes had been struggling with for weeks was alleviated with consistent use of the ctm band before and after workouts.
In short, can’t recommend this product enough to runners or athletes who love their foam roller.
Much like a good sports massage, the CTM Band is a "hurt so good" approach that leaves my muscles feeling great.
I ordered the CTM Band several months ago and have used it almost daily ever since. It's a new approach to muscle care that really works!
No bells and whistles here, but it works better than anything else I've tried. Would recommend to anyone wanting more than typical foam roller or stick roller.
