Show Some Skin

You’re already a week into those healthy resolutions you made, so why not treat yourself to cute new workout clothes? I don’t know about you, but sporting a new outfit at the gym gives me that little extra motivation and pep in my step.

While doing my holiday shopping last month, I discovered a brand at DICKS Sporting Goods that I hadn’t heard of before: Second Skin. What first caught my eye was the color selection—more than the usual grays and blacks found in men’s fitness apparel, this one has pops of fun colors added to the mix. The selection of styles was also impressive, with many pieces featuring layers of texture and fun designs.

The clothing appeared to be fitted (always a plus in my book) so I grabbed a few pieces and hit the dressing room. I realized quickly that this line of clothing was more than just fitted—it was super tight. I had to go up two sizes! That’s when I realized the pieces were compression. I’ve never been a fan of compression athletic wear, but I liked the look and feel of the line so much, I kept digging and luckily found that they make cool non compression pieces too—so of course I stocked up! I left with two long sleeved shirts, compression shorts and a baseball hat, and so far I am loving the quality and fit! One of my favorite pieces turned out to be this long sleeved compression shirt. Even though I had to size up from my usual small to a large, the length and fit were still perfect—not too long and plenty tight without being uncomfortable.

In San Antonio, they’re only available at DICKS at the RIM or online. They’re currently having a sale at both DICKS & Second Skin online, so go ahead—show some skin!

P.S.There are plenty of fun pieces for women too!
