We now have SKINS!

We are pleased to announce that Doug’s is now a Skins dealer!

A brief history of SKINS

In 1996, an Aussie skier had a bold ambition – to feel ten years younger so he could ski all day, party all night and be ready the next morning do it all again.

His starting point was the knowledge that improved blood circulation would supply more oxygen to his muscles, helping them work harder for longer and recover faster. So he consulted with NASA and other experts to confirm he was on to something. Turns out he was.

Soon word got out that there were these things called SKINS that improved your power, speed, stamina and recovery. Pro athletes were the first to start wearing them. Before long, amateur athletes joined the party.

Train harder. Perform faster. Recover faster.

There is a ton of research being done on Skins…

What have they found?

  • increases venous return
  • reduces exercise induced muscle damage (EIMD)
  • accelerates recovery processes
  • removes lactic acid faster
  • increases strength and power
  • improves endurance
  • increases muscle oxygenation
  • improves body temperature control
  • reduces in-flight ankle oedema

…so you get the benefits of a better performance without pain.

Stop in and check it out!

AND All Skins are on SALE 20% off 8/21/15-8/23/15!

A quick cure for you fear of heights…

This summer we are going to highlight fun things to do and see in the Columbia Gorge. Today our web/team manager Nikki went ZipLining at Skamania Lodge. It is just a short 25 min drive form Hood River. I HIGHLY recommend doing this if you are in the area. Our guides Tiana and Anthony were full of energy and extremely helpful if you need a little coaxing to take that first step off the platform. You zipline off 7 towers and sail thru the scenic canopy, with peaking views of the Columbia River and the golf course. Afterwards you can calm your nerves at lunch at the lodge.
