Aspaeris Pivot Shorts Product Review

Aspaeris Pivot Short aspaeirs_outer_shortsSince I have become a Tough Chik, I have branched out and been able to try new products. My most recent product purchase was the Aspaeris Pivot Shorts™   I have worn compression pants and capris in the past, and loved them but had several issues with the seams on them splitting in various places, and after numerous exchanges, and returns, I gave up on them.  When I saw that the Tough Chiks were getting these - I figured I should at least give it a shot. I ordered the basic black pair and got them within a week. I received them on my scheduled boot camp night so I figured I would give them try.  Well - imagine my surprise when at bootcamp they decided it was hill training night. I am NOT a fan of hills, but I was running like a superstar to the top of the hill and back and beat all the others and came home and still felt great...was it the shorts?  A few days later I put on the shorts again, and took them out on a longer run, and when I started the run, the shorts were tight enough to make me feel like they put me in the right form when I was running.  Today as I was reviewing the website I actually read about the product:
Aspaeris Pivot Shorts™ are actually two pairs of shorts bonded together. The Outer Short is a high performance compression short designed to support your muscles. The Inner Short features our breakthrough, Dual Sensory Compression Bands™.These cross-knit bands guide your muscles into the proper position, thereby improving your pivot performance, which helps prevent ACL and hip injuries.
So -- there you go.... they were putting my muscles in the right position and making me run with better form. I have enjoyed these shorts so much, that I actually threw them on for a race this weekend, under some shorts (it was raining and cold and I wasn't sure how cold or wet I would get).  I had my best run EVER. I ran a comfortable half marathon at 1.52.05 with no aches or pains, and ended up 2nd in my age group.  I actually felt so good - I was out on the road the next day running again.  I will be ordering more of these soon - and hoping they make capris or pants soon.   If you ladies out there want to try these - use this coupon code for $10 off - NOACLHURT at - you wont regret it!   Happy Running!

I grew up in New York and lived there for 34 years until I got divorced and moved 1600 miles to my new home in Texas.  I love New York and miss it but that does not mean that Texas hasn’t been great to me because it has.  It was here that I discovered endurance sports and specifically the sport of triathlon.  Triathlon has given me new life through all the challenges it presents.  I no longer look at life the same way and I can say that is in part due to my endeavor into this sport.
