Do it your health
We believe that the best way to take control of your health, wellbeing and performance is to do it yourself. You know your goals, your abilities, your limits, your ailments and your preferences best of all. You decide how to achieve your personal balance between activation and regeneration for a life full of energy and sustainable performance. Because no one knows you better than you know yourself.
We have set ourselves the goal of encouraging you and all people to do something for their own health. No matter if you want to get rid of your aches and pains, if you want to beat your best time, if you just want to be a bit fitter, if you want to belong to the world elite or if a good quality of sleep is important to you. Whatever it is, we offer you the perfect tools, tips and services for your health and performance.
We consider ourselves a Healthstyle Company. This means that we offer products and services that are easy and intuitive to use for every life situation and lifestyle, and that experts in sport and health - scientists, doctors, therapists and professional athletes - are convinced of.
And in many cases in areas where products of comparable quality, design and perfection simply did not exist before. You can use BLACKROLL® products to relax your muscles even in between and after sports. For less pain. For a permanently better posture. For effective warm-up and training. Even for better sleep.
It all started for us with the then almost unknown connective tissue fibres called fasciae. They not only envelop and stabilise muscles and organs, they are also equipped with many nerve endings, making them the largest sensory organ in the human body. This is why we developed the first BLACKROLL® .
In the meantime a classic, which has been followed by many other products especially for the fasciae. Offering products alone is not enough for us. Because only the correct and regular application makes the success. We offer you a lot of help and inspiration to motivate you to use them correctly in everyday life
Helping other people is a fulfilling mission. Not only for us as a company, but also for the many trainers and therapists who use our products every day. We train them and there are now over 5,000 BLACKROLL® coaches worldwide who are convinced of our solutions. They are there to help and advise you if you feel you need professional help. Especially if you have injuries and/or severe/recurring pain.
We now have over 60 staff and are represented by over 5,000 qualified trainers in 37 countries worldwide. We help people in more than 57 countries improve their recovery and stay fit and healthy.

At the German Football Association’s sports medicine conference, Jürgen Dürr approaches Oliver Bierhoff about providing the national team with fascia rollers. Soon after, BLACKROLL® becomes a core component of the national team’s equipment. A milestone.
At the biggest physiotherapy conference, BLACKROLL® wins the Thieme Verlag Physio Prize for the ‘product with the biggest benefit for the target audience’. That same year, Jürgen Dürr sends a test set of three rollers to Robert Schleip. He is delighted, and helps expand the company’s network of scientists.
Jürgen Dürr comes up with the idea of developing a product anyone can use to massage themselves. The BLACKROLL® is launched on the market and our journey begins with Germany’s first fascia roller.
