PRO Compression Review and GIVEAWAY!!!

Check out www.procompression.com for more information!


When I started training for my first marathon last year, I heard so much about making sure you recover correctly.  As a marathon newbie, I thought that meant making sure you take your rest days and stretch.  While that is true, there are also some little tips that can make everything better.


My favorite was the idea of compression socks. I did TONS of research on what brand would be the best and how to go about sizing.  Of course my amazing running community clued me in to PRO Compression.


Like most compression socks, PRO Compression socks help push fluid up from your feet and ankles towards the knee, helping to reduce swelling and increase blood flow. Plus, they have tons of really awesome colors and designs! I love bright colors and there is always a huge variety for me to pick from! If you are not a fan of high socks, they also have low trainers and racers.


Every month I get an email with their Sock of the Month. One of my favorite emails to get! They release a new product, or re-release one. Plus, there is also a promo code inside! If you do not get the emails, I HIGHLY recommend that you do! You can sign up at the bottom of their homepage.


Since I have a few pairs of the socks already, PRO Compression had me do a review of their calf sleeves. With my foot issue, I was really excited that I could wear my extra padded socks and get the benefits of compression.

Of course, they are pink!


When they came in the mail I instantly had to put them on. Nice and snug, the way I like my compression. The sleeves come up a little above my ankle and stop right before my knee. I really like that the bottom cuff clings to my leg, something I was worried about with very tiny legs.





I took them for a test run on the treadmill for my 10 mile run.  Everything felt great. I didn’t have the tightness I feel from a treadmill run, and they didn’t move at all! I had a fear that sleeves would bunch or slouch down after they got sweaty, but this was not the case at all. I didn’t have to mess with them once!




When I took them off after my run, my legs felt amazing. Completely refreshed.  I have never felt this good after a 10 mile run, even with normal marathon socks. I think I am now converted to the sleeves!


PRO Compression wants you to love their product as much as I do!
