Brazyn Life

brazyn lifeTom Hopkins and Nate Lawrie hope to roll out of the Tank with an investment in Brazyn Life in episode 902. Their product is a foam roller – the type used for exercise and stretching. Lawrie, a former NFL tight end whose career got cut short due to back injury, first discovered foam rollers while rehabbing his back. He stretched the back, did ab exercises and massaged himself with foam rollers and quickly became a devotee.

Lawrie likes to travel, and he wanted to bring a foam roller with him to help stay fit. He and Hopkins designed a roller that collapses so it packs easy. They raised $65,382 in a successful Kickstarter campaign back in December, 2015 to get their prototype into production. There were some production issues (fairly typical with most Kickstarters) and didn’t deliver until the following Christmas. Now, their foam roller, called the Morph, is readily available.

They claim it’s the world’s only collapsible foam roller, but there are a slew of non-collapsible foam rollers out there. The Brazyn Life version is less bulky, but no less sturdy than the others. One of their rollers cost $68. For another ten bucks, you can add a skin which covers the roller and gets taken off to throw in the wash. Other accessories include an extension kit to attach two rollers together and Brazyn Life tee-shirts. They offer a variety of bundle options to lower the cost of purchasing multiple items.

Lawrie and Hopkins probably need money for production and marketing. Will a Shark be brazen and invest in this fitness product?
