“How many things are you an ambassador for!?” That’s my boyfriend asked me when I got my Legend Compression package in the mail last year.
It’s true, I am an ambassador for a lot of companies. Yes, I get a lot of perks, but every single one of the companies I am very passionate about; I won’t apply if I’m not. With LEGEND Compression Wear, I got an email asking if I wanted to join their Ambassador program. They were looking for bloggers and avid runners.
Hey, that’s me!
It couldn’t have come at a better time! I was super excited that my blog was starting to get noticed and I definitely need the compression gear to help battle these persistent injuries of mine. (Injuries is such a harsh word, more like troublesome spots.)
LEGEND Compression Wear’s mission is “to improve the performance of every athlete – from the casual jogger to the competitive triathlete.” I love this because it means you can be better, and achieve goals, no matter what level you are. They “promote the notion that LEGENDS are created from great people, great courage, and great accomplishments.” Hence: #BeaLegend
They have compression products for just about every sport as well as everyday wearable compression. The difference between LEGEND and other compression companies is that they focus on #RightNotTight. The hashtag comes from “Compression is Right not Tight!”. This is focused on their compression performance socks and leg sleeves which feature a 15-20 mmHg level of compression. From their background in the medical field, they’ve seen that this is a more therapeutic level of compression which is better for you during training/competition. It’s a misconception that compression socks have to FEEL tight to be working.
I love their website because you can shop by sport, ailment, body part or everyday wear. I have the compression socks, sleeves and recovery socks. My favorite product if by far, the recovery socks. They are perfect for lounging in for long periods of time (whereas regular compression socks might be too tight for long wear). All the LEGEND compression products I own are great for running and climbing (yes, seriously, you’re on your toes a lot and thus contracting your calves!).
