Foam Rolling and Self-Myofascial Release with Steve Wells

Your foam roller is much more than a torture device — it’s an effective mobility tool. Using it correctly reduces pain and restores mobility. Learn about foam rolling techniques and other simple myofascial tools at this free 60-minute clinic taught by Steve Wells from Midland Fitness at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, July 28, at the Glenwood Springs Branch Library. Bring your own yoga or stretch mat and a foam roller if you have one and wear loose fitting clothes. More information at or call 970-945-5958.
