07 Mar Posted by in Events | 5 comments

Hey Gang,

Mark your calendars and save the date for Monday, March 26th!

From 5:00 – 6:00 p.m. that evening, we will be welcoming a Skins™ rep into our box.  Maggie will be putting on a one night only, 50% off retail price event for The Zone!  At this time, he will be setting up a table in the gym with Skins™ gear that you can try on, as well as giving us the skinny on some information about the products.

CrossFit Zone members will receive the product at 50% off the suggested retail price at this time (*shoppers will be responsible for 10% shipping and handling and the usual HST taxes, as well.*) So please spread the word to any and all you think may be interested!

Not sure what Skins™ are?  Here is some of their product information:

What are Skins™ and how do they work?

Skins™ is body-molded gradient compression performance equipment with built-in BioAcceleration Technology™ which will enhance your performance in training, competition and recovery.  When compression is engineered to apply a balanced and accurate surface pressure over specific body parts, it triggers an acceleration of blood flow. This increases oxygen delivery to working muscles to enhance their performance. The circulation improvements also help the body to eliminate lactic acid and other metabolic wastes. The combination of these effects allows you to work at a higher rate for longer.

The improved oxygenation is most marked in recovery from exercise. As a result, muscle repair is accelerated, with a greater effect if your Skins™ are worn for longer, The best effects on delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS), which can last for more than 48 hours, are seen after 8 hours during which time pain, muscle weakness and alertness are dramatically improved.

Benefits include:

• reducing lactic acid build-up, increasing muscle oxygenation and enhancing circulation;

• focusing muscle power;

• drawing moisture away from the skin;

• optimizing body temperature in warm or cool conditions;

• preventing odor through antibacterial treatments;

• providing sun safety with 50+ UV protection.

In addition to providing first rate sporting benefits, the increased oxygenation and circulation provided by Skins™ is also an excellent means of relieving many medical complaints including arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, lymph edema, varicose veins and deep vein thrombosis (DVT). It is also effective in promoting circulation during pregnancy.

The Skins™ range of product includes:

• long tights

• half tights

• shorts

• capri tights and shorts for women

• tops – long sleeve, short sleeve, sleeveless and a tank for women

• powersox™

• powersleeves

    Not listed in the benefits of compression tights is that they make me feel sexy… and I think it's scientifically proven that if you feel sexy you in fact have an increase in your net sexy levels.

    I will probably pick up some shorts while they are on sale.

      That is the truth Craig 😉
      I can't wait to be loaded up in skins. I am going to get the shirt, and sleeves!
