Press release : TLV Fitness Foam Roller helps customers who suffer from back pain

Leading Fitness Manufacturer TLV Fitness Receives 5 Star Review For Their Newly Launched Foam Roller
TLV Fitness Foam Roller helps customers who suffer from back pain.




(EMAILWIRE.COM, April 08, 2015 ) London, United Kingdom -- The benefits of self massage using a foam roller are many, and the TLV Fitness Foam Roller is designed to target areas of knots and trigger points that are particularly difficult to release. It can be used by anyone at any age or fitness level to prevent injury and release tension or pain. 

Rather than spending a lot of time and money to go to a massage therapist, the foam roller can give the same results quicker and is more cost effective. It reduces and can eliminate sports injury. It is very simple to use and does not require any prior knowledge to get the most out of it. For best results it is recommended to use every day or at least every other day. Due to its compact size it is very easy to take anywhere. 

It targets the deep tissue structure of the fascia and muscles and this can unblock the flow of nutrients and oxygen to the muscle tissue and reduce inflammation and build up of toxins. Releasing toxins from the body has been shown to improve general health and wellbeing. 

The spokesman for TLV Fitness was thrilled about the 5 Star review on Amazon, saying "Everyone, regardless of their fitness level or age, can enjoy using the Foam Roller and get results. However, I am excited to see what great benefits our customers who suffer from back pain are experiencing by only using it for a week. "

The Foam Roller is currently on sale on Amazon and 50% off the original price.

OMG !! I cannot believe how after using this TLV Fitness Foam Roller for one week, the lower back pain that I used to wake up to in the early mornings is gone!! I use this Fitness foam roller every other day and what results I have experienced. I am not a young person, and cannot do a lot of Physical Exercises, mainly due to my medical condition, severe DVT, this is a perfect solution for me. The Foam feels very firm and feels like hands massaging my lower back. This Foam roller is not a cheap made foam roller, and is an exceptional value. The Inside is made of Rigid PVC with just the right texture foam surrounding Rigid Roller that does the magic on my back. Part of the foam design is constructed to feel like Fingers and Thumbs, other areas feel like the Palm is doing the massaging wonders for me. The Fitness Foam roller is the perfect size for me to use, and also carry in my suitcase when I travel. The inside is hollow, thus allowing space to store things inside while packing. I will definitely be ordering more of these for my sisters and brothers, for Christmas, or their Birthday. All I can say is thank you TLV Fitness, it has truly transformed the way I feel every morning. Not a just a good Product but a GREAT- GREAT PRODUCT!!

Stage 21 - Évry / Paris Champs-Élysées 137.5km and Merry Christmas and best wishes for 2015


Well after nearly 6 months i can finally post my concluding blog post for the Tour De France charity bike ride i completed in late July. I knew it was going to be tough and it lived up to the billing 100%.
I went through the full range of emotions over the 25 days of the event. From absolute joy to completing any of the stages to the absolute pain of the injuries i carried with me from about stage 6 onwards.

To me this is - if not the hardest event in the world. Yes you have a bike to ride but you must pedal the bike yourself. Sometimes you get a helping hand with a nice descent but then you have to think about staying alive going down a hill at 60 plus Kilometres per hour and for me on the opposite side of the road. One guy actually hit a car descending but thankfully he was ok.

The climbs were amazingly tough. I remembering climbing towards the Col d Izoard the highest point of the tour on what i wouldn't call a nice warm day. The climb up to the Col d Lautaret was shrouded in mist and the descent down from this was absolutely freezing. I remember riding into the lunch stop and it was the first time i saw people in absolute bits from the cold. Some decided not to ride on that day and ride in the warmth and comfort of the vans supporting everyone. I had come too far to stop now and quite frankly this adversity wasn't going to stop me now. This was nearly the last couple of days climbing before the time trial and the ceremonial ride into Paris.

I made it over the Col D Izoard and for the first time in the 25 days had multiple punctures - i think it was 5 or 6 in the last 10km climb to the summit. A great lesson to learn to check punctures with your fingers sometime the smallest cuts can do all the damage. You can't see them so you think everything is OK when i reality it isn't. A Km or so down the road you would have another puncture.

When i finally sorted this out there was an amazing descent through some beautiful countryside to a final Cat 1 climb to our rest stop. The following days went by in a bit of a blur but eventually we reached paris and the final ceremonial ride down the champs elysees to the Arc De Triomphe.

We went out for dinner that night and slept like a baby knowing i wouldn't have to get up at crazy o'clock and ride for another 10 hours.

The body then effectively shut down for a couple of weeks and i picked up a nice throaty cough that wanted to shake the living daylights out of me. I had major problems with my feet during the ride and feeling only came back  in some of my toes after a couple of weeks.

Thankfully the feet are all good again from investing in some decent quality cycle shoes i am now back on the road. For anyone who has seen my amazingly high arches you would think i would have picked up on this earlier ;-)

The bike has been through some major servicing and to be honest has held up amazingly well for the punishment i put it through. It seems every 3000 or so kms i need a new rear cassette and brake pads. Tyres are replaced on a monthly basis ( approx 1500 kms ) so all in all everything is good.

On a final note i want to thank everyone for donating to the William Wates foundation and what a fantastic cause this is. The Wates family were out on the the road every supporting all the riders.

Also a thanks goes out to all the staff who supported the riders - the unsung heroes who patched us up , got us through the day and made sure everything ran as smoothly as possible. Without there help i wouldn't have finished at all.

Merry xmas and a happy new year to everyone and best wishes for 2015. If 2014 is anything to go by it is going to be one helluva year!

ps - I have signed up for next years tour so we can have all the fun again ; this time without so much pain !!!

Stage 15 TDF Tallard - Nimes 216.6km



Thankfully the sun came out today and we had a nice 40 minute transfer from the alpine resort of risoul to Tallard where we began the stage before our rest day in carcassone. We rolled all the way through the provence region and passed some amazing lavender fields. After all the climbing we had done in the last couple of days it was a welcome change.  

We stopped en-route at the normal feed stops and since the weather was so nice we even added an extra 
stop to grab some ice cream. ( see photo on twitter account ) 

The weather was peaking in the high 20's and as the day wore on we went from rolling hills to flat lands which were pretty featureless. We were glad to arrive in the hotel in nimes and it was probably the best hotel so far ( novotel ) - The food was excellent and the beds were very comfortable.We watched the germans beat the argies and prior to bastille day the fireworks display in Nimes. 

I have been nursing a sore swollen right ankle for the past couple of days which restricts extended movement out of the saddle - I have been icing this as much as possible and hoping the rest day in Carcassone will give it more chance to recover before the pyreenean mountain stages. 






List of climbs for the day 

None recognised today.


Todays stats.

Distance: 216.6
Time on bike: 8:43:32 (10:55 Alps Stage 13) - 
Calories burned 4943( 5195 Yorkshire Stage 2 )
Ascent:  1632 meters (4340 Alps Stage 14)

Tomorrow is a rest day and we will transfer from Nimes to Carcassone in the morning. The transfer will take 2 hours and from then it will be recovery , recovery , recovery in preparation for the final 6 stages - 3 tough stages in the pyrenees and then a transition stage followed by a 54km time trial and then the run into paris. 

What will happen in the tour on this day ?

This is a flat rolling stage and you can expect high speeds all the way into Nimes. A day for the sprinters but all the peloton will be looking forward to the rest day after several hard days in the alps.

Stage 10 Mulhouse - La Plance Des Belles Filles 161kms in 8 hours and change

To the mountains we will go.


So on paper this looked a very hard stage with rain forecast for most of the day. As it turned out we had torrential rain in the last 2 hours and some very hard climbs. We had a nice gentle 20km leg stretcher to the foot of the first climb.

20km spin to first climb

A group of the slower riders left 30 minutes early than the main bunch and with the long day ahead this was a wise move. I have been feeling better each day and today i felt extremely well going up the first climb
and then i started to struggle.I then realised i was still in the big chain ring and dropped down to the easier ring to push into the first feed stop at 40km. This was the first time i arrived at the first feed stop before everyone else. I now know what a full table of food looks like. I decided to take a photo of the board with only my name scribbled out. This will probably be the last time i arrive first. 

first on the board 
We then descended before hitting out first of 4 x Cat 1 climbs for the day. This was especially tough as the climb was on what looked like a forest path and it was getting colder the higher we climbed. Reaching the top of the petit ballon we immediately started the Col Du Platzerwsel before a freezing descent into the next feed stop. 

At 143.5km  we hit the hardest climb of the day the Co Des Chevres and this really was a forest track with walls of 14%. My garmin bike computer stopped recording a couple of times because it thought i was standing still. You know when a climb is hard when your computer thinks you aren't moving at all. The rain had now started to come down in cats and dogs and small streams were flowing down the climb. I reached the final feed stop drenched from the head to toe. A quick sugar and food intake followed a very wet and dangerous descent into the last climb of the day the La Blanche des Belles Filles. 


This climb had km markers all the way up and i counted down each one to the finish. I like to see these as you know how much pain you have left to endure. 

4 km to go
I reached the top about 6pm. It took another hour to reach the top before descending back down to get in the bus for the 1hr 40 mins transfer to Besancon.





  • At the summit



List of climbs for the day 


  • Km 30.5 - Col du Firstplan (722 m)8.3 kilometre-long climb at 5.4% - category 2
  • Km 54.5 - Petit Ballon (1 163 m)9.3 kilometre-long climb at 8.1% - category 1
  • Km 71.5 - Col du Platzerwasel (1 193 m)7.1 kilometre-long climb at 8.4% - category 1
  • Km 103.5 - Col d'Oderen (884 m)6.7 kilometre-long climb at 6.1% - category 2
  • Km 125.5 - Col des Croix3.2 kilometre-long climb at 6.2% - category 3
  • Km 143.5 - Col des Chevrères (914 m)3.5 kilometre-long climb at 9.5% - category 1
  • Km 161.5 - La Planche des Belles Filles (1 035 m)5.9 kilometre-long climb at 8.5% - category 1



Todays stats.

Distance: 161.5 km Including 4 Cat 1 climbs with a 22% wall to finish
Time on bike: 8:08:15 (10:26 Yorkshire Stage 2) - 
Calories burned 4282 ( 5195 Yorkshire Stage 2 )
Ascent:  3715 meters (3624 Yorkshire Stage 2)

Today the 08th  is a rest day and my main priorities are massage for the legs , check the bike , do my laundry and rest for tomorrows stage. It is quite incredible to think i have done 1839 kms in 10 days. Anything is possible and your body is capable of amazing things. 

What will happen in the tour on this day ?

This is billed as a mountain stage and all the GC contenders will have to be on their toes. The Col De Chevres will decimate the peloton and whoever is left standing at the top of the planche will have marked their cards as a genuine contender to win this years tour.Chris Froome won the last time the tour visited in 2012. If he wants to make a statement this will be the stage.
