2. Owl Be Sweatin’ “Do me a Solid” Headband ($14; use discount code “underthesticks15” for 15% off): These non-slip, adjustable headbands are guaranteed to stay on for rugby games without causing headaches. Plus, the reflective green will keep you safe on night time runs.

Win your own MOBOT Foam Roller Water Bottle!

Ever since I got my MOBOT, I’ve been using it nonstop. I’m usually bad at drinking enough water for the day, so I feel much more accountable now that I’ve been carrying it around everywhere. I’ve gotten so many compliments about it, especially since the Juicyfruit matches my cast right now! ;)


MOBOTs are perfect for staying hydrated, relaxing muscles, and keeping you at the peak of your fitness. It took me a while to get comfortable with foam rolling, but I’ve been devoted to it for a year or so now. Foam rolling has tons of benefits, and the bottles are BPA free, come in a variety of colors, and are easy to stash in your gym bag or purse. I’m heading out of town next weekend, and I’m definitely packing this in my bag. I don’t have any plane rides planned anytime soon, but I’m definitely taking one in my carry-on to fill up after I get to the gate. Plus, I’m sure it’ll double quite well as a pillow! One of my favorite features besides the obvious foam roller is the straw. Nothing’s cool about spilled water, right? Rumor has it you can easily fill it with a beverage/liquid of your choice, just do it responsibly!

Don’t freeze the bottle, though; if you want cold water, just throw some ice in it. It’s tested to hold up a ton of weight, so don’t be shy when it comes to rolling out. Needless to say, the MOBOT is perfect for athletes and non-athletes alike, because everyone could use a little muscle lovin’.  I’m not sure how no one thought of this before, because it’s absolutely brilliant!


There are a ton of great perk at their Indie Go Go campaign, too, so I highly suggest checking it out. You can split a three pack with your friends and save a ton of money!If you’d like to win your own MOBOT, head over to my Instagram. It’s open to US residents 18+, so hurry on over. Good luck!


 Disclaimer: MOBOT gifted me with my own bottle, as well as bottles for giveaway. All opinions are, as always, 100% mine.


A Water Bottle…AND Foam Roller?!?

My friends over at Mobot Nation just launched their Indie Go Go campaign for the world’s first foam roller + water bottle combination. “Genius” would be an understatement. These easy-to-carry bottles are perfect for taking on hikes, to the gym, to rugby games, or even stashing in your purse for a lunch break roll out. Plus, they come in fun colors; who says rolling has to be boring? Help them reach their goal at their campaign below!
