Healthy Holidays Giveaway Week: Day Two

It’s day two of Healthy Holidays Giveaway Week and the fitness fun is just beginning! 

Healthy Holidays Giveaway Week

Today we’re keeping the festivities rolling with a compression shorts giveaway!

Aspaeris Compression Shorts Giveaway

As someone who discovered the benefits of compression gear only a year ago, I fell hard and fast for compression clothing, sleeves and socks.

The Aspaeris Pivot Shorts are my favorite pair of compression shorts – I have them in navy blue and red – and when I reached out to the company about a giveaway, they enthusiastically agreed. Hooray!

Aspaeris Pivot Shorts

They also threw in the added bonus of 25 percent off the compression shorts on their website for PBF readers just in case you don’t win but still want to try their gear. (Just use the code PBFINGERS on the Aspaeris website and you’ll get the discount.)

The Aspaeris Pivot Shorts are actually two shorts in one.

According to the company, the outer short is a high performance compression short designed to support your muscles while the inner short features 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.

Pivot Compression Shorts

They’ll keep you nice and snug!

To enter this giveaway, please leave a comment below telling me about your experience (or lack of experience!) with compression gear.

I will randomly select a winner on Thursday morning.

Good luck!

    The only thing I know about compression pants is that they can keep you warm or cool depending on if you are woking out in hot or cold. But this might not be true. The fact that these help stabilize your muscle is amazing to me! I can’t even understand how that works!!! 🙂

    I used to wear compression shorts underneath soccer shorts when I played competitively. It sure helped preventing burns when slide tackling. It’s sure been awhile though!

    I have no experience with compression gear because they are usually out of my price range. I always hear great things though from my running friends, so I would love to see what all the rave is about! 🙂

    I own two pairs of compression capris and I really love them! Unfortunately compression gear is crazy expensive, but I really love how my legs don’t feel nearly as tired afterward.

    For as long as I can remember, tiiiight muscles have been an issue for me. I was amazed when I tried compression sleeves on my calves and noticed a difference in my knee pain. Fast forward 1 year, and I’ve been dealing with nagging hip (hellooooo hip flexor and piriformis) tightness that has been making my back go crazy. I’ve been wanting to try compression shorts, thinking they will support me in all the right, tight places 😉

    I just recently started experimenting with compression gear — when I have long runs to train (13mi +) they help keep the lower half of my legs aching even after I’m finished!

    I’ve just ordered my first pair of compression socks and I’m so excited to see how they help with recovery (really could have used those after my first marathon this year!)

    I’ve never used compression gear, but think I’d benefit from them! I’ve started doing a lot more squats and leg workouts and keeping my muscles in the proper position sounds like a great thing!

    I have never used compression clothing before, but I have always wanted to try them out. I like that they help aide muscle alignment so my knees and hips are protected. My hips always hurt, so maybe they will help. =D

    I’ve worn compression gear for years during a lifetime of competitive soccer. Started using it during my non-soccer running, and it does wonders for my hobbly knees!

    I don’t own any compression gear, but I’d love to try some! I like that these shorts look long enough so they wouldn’t be horribly unflattering!

  12. Angela I says

    I’ve been wanting to try compression gear for SO LONG now, it’s just not in my budget. I think it would seriously help my performance, but specifically reduce my recovery time because my legs need allll the help they can get.

    I recently got into working out again, because I’m scared of looking THIRTY this coming April. My family bought me some compression shorts & I really have no idea what to do with them! Help!

  17. Sara Oliver says

    I trained for and ran my first half marathon with compression socks. It was really great because they helped me recover from shin splints I was developing, and it really made a difference in my ability to finish all 13.1 miles, instead of having to stop and walk! Compression gear is AWESOME and I’m dying to try shorts.

    I bought a pair of compression shorts after participating in last year’s RnR half marathon in DC. My thighs were rubbed raw, so I use compression shorts under my regular running gear to protect my skin. SkinnyRunner is really into compression gear, too, so I’d love to try a real pair. I got mine at TJ Maxx, and they aren’t holding up very well.

    Due to DVT i wear a compression stocking on one of my legs.
    Prior to this though I was familiar with them because they helped with the flow of the circulation and therefore energy.

      (Quote)

  47. Kate says

    In high school, many of my cross country teammates wore compression gear, and so I heard many great things about them! I have never worn any myself because they tend to be pretty expensive. I may have to give the discount code a try if I’m not chosen. 🙂

  48. says

    None, but have always been curious. And I can’t help but be reminded of Zoe Deschanel in New Girld when I see these. The wedding episode…it gets me everytime. If that isn’t a majour marketing point, I don’t know what is. haha.

    I’ve never tried compression clothing, but I’d love to! Sounds like they do a lot. I had my first child 11 weeks ago and am trying to get back to running shape. I bet they would hold in the bit of extra flub I’m carrying as an added benefit 😉

  51. says

    I don’t have experience with actual compression gear. In high school I always wore spandex for volleyball, track, and under basketball shorts. I still wear spandex when I play sports or just for working out. I would be interested in giving compression gear a shot!

    The only compression gear I own/have used is a pair of compression calve sleeves. They are great for recovery, and I used them post hard workouts in college. Lately I have been experiencing hip soreness and would love to try out the shorts!

    I don’t have much experience with compression gear, but would love to try it, the muscle aligning feature is intriguing, maybe it would have helped me aviod my hamstring injury earlier this year!

  68. Kelly says

    I never thought I would use compression gear…just didn’t “buy into it” at first. But now that I own a pair of compression socks, I am all about it!! I am a runner, teacher and work weddings on the side, so I am on my feet all day long. The only way I can keep my feet and legs from swelling is to wear compression socks. My hamstrings are always very sore after running long distances, and I would LOVE to try a good pair of compression shorts!

      (Quote)

  69. Molly says

    I haven’t ever had the pleasure of using any but I think they would really help! When I ran a marathon my IT band flared up and since it runs all up and down the leg, my knew through my hip was in awful pain. I think that these could really help and get me back to running long distances again!

  70. Meredith S says

    I played volleyball for 10 years and wore spandex everyday of my life, so I love compression shorts. After I quit volleyball, I have not found a pair of compression shorts for working out. These look great and I would love to try them!!

  71. Paige Reeves says

    I have never used compression gear before, but have heard of the benefits. I’m trying to get back in shape after the birth of my youngest, and have lower back and leg problems from the pregnancy. I have heard that compression gear would be good for working out with.

  72. Kaylan says

    I have never had any experience with compression shorts! After I ran my first half marathon I unfortunately developed a severe IT band injury and had to get physical therapy on it. They told me any type of compression shorts/pants would help in the future so a pair of these bad boys would be great for the next half marathon I run (hopefully this year!) 🙂

    Wow! Since I’ve been working hard to get my body back in shape I finally feel like I can stop wearing black and baggy at the gym and .

Nothing is worse than finally getting into a routine and then having to stop!

    I don’t have any experience with compression gear, although I’m awfully intrigued by it now that I know these guide your muscles into the proper position. I’ve had some surgeries that now cause me ankle/knee/hip pain when I run so I’m hopeful these would help!

    I’ve been using compression sleeves and compression socks for recovery after my long runs for the past few months. I’m not sure if it was them or the fact that this was my fourth marathon, but my recovery from my long runs was a lot easier this past training cycle. I’ve heard about Aspaeris shorts for some time and am anxious to try them so even if I don’t win I will probably be buying a pair soon.

  106. Chrissy says

    I agree, Julie – once I found compression gear (shorts, sleeves, socks, etc.), I haven’t turned back. I have used the socks/sleeve post-run for recovery, and wore them for a couple races where I had shin or calf issues. Love the pivot shorts and would love another pair (I own them in navy). Did you see Aspaeris is coming out with a second edition of these? I read an article about it somewhere, and I’m stoked!

    I just got my first pair of compression socks in the mail on Saturday – I wore them after a long workout at the gym on Sunday….my legs felt great on yesterday’s run! I’m hoping I win these shorts so I can continue to recover well as I train for my next marathon in February! 🙂

    I have CEP compression socks (in pink, naturally), and they’re great for recovery! I wear them on plane rides too (including a 27-hour, 3-flight trip to Indonesia). I’ve never tried compression shorts, though, but I think they would be great – especially because after running, it’s my QUADS that are shaky and tired, not my calves!

    I have never tried compression gear, but I would love to! I have been slacking in the long run department ever since I completed my first half marathon almost a year ago. Maybe these shorts (and being more comfortable during long runs) would help get me back in the game!

    I just recently started getting into running, my fiance has always been a runner and triathlete but I never got into it, so recently I decided to start training for my first 5K! I started about two weeks ago, and it has been a little bit of a struggle for me to get myself motivated, but once I finish my run I’m so glad I did it! I have never used compression gear, but my fiance swears by it! I would love a chance to try a pair!

    I never wore compression shorts until I started mixed martial arts about 5 years ago. It was quite the difference! After I started wearing them, the amount of pulled muscles was getting significantly decreased. They also made me feel comfortable when I would be wearing loose shorts so I wouldn’t be flashing everyone my underwear during kicks 😉

    I have never tried compression gear, but I am trying to loose the weight I put on after my wedding and have started running. I am a TERRIBLE runner! After a 1/2 mile I think I am dying. However, I have always wanted to be a “runner”. I want to go out and just run and not feel like it’s killing me. I am currently on week five of a 10k training app that I downloaded.

    I have heard about compression gear from people who train for 1/2 marathons and full marathons. Doing a 1/2 marathon (after a 10k) is my future goal. I’d love to have the gear to look at when I don’t feel like running and use when I am working on reaching my goal. 🙂

    Thank you!

    I’ve been wearing compression shorts for what it seems like all my life! It usually was to prevent turf burn, or those nasty burns from gymnasium floors, or just about anything resulting from falling during sports! As of lately they’re also to keep me from flashing everyone in lacrosse games (we wear skirts!). I’ve never thought of the fact that compression shorts really DO help you with injury prevention and muscle stabilization. Would love to try these out!

    I’ve never tried compression shorts but man could I have used them after my first 5K! I had reconstructive knee surgery a couple years ago so I was pretty nervous about “injuring” my knee again from running such a far distance (atleast for me it is). But to my surprise, my knee felt just fine after! However, my hips were another story. I could barely walk after, it was bad! I think these compression shorts would really help me and would definitely give me some piece of mind before running my next race. 🙂

    I have never personally worn compression gear. I have had the misconception that it is just for guys and not comfortable at all. After thinking about this, I remembered that my younger sister wore compression shorts in many sports during High School and in college intramurals, but I never knew why (I was definitely not the athlete of the family).

    Now that I have read your post and done a few moments of googling, I feel like I would really like to try some out! I have struggled with joint issues, especially my hips, when I run. It would be AWESOME if something this simple could take that pain away!
