Jump for Tommie Copper: Fitness Apparel Giveaway & Trampoline Workout

Disclosure: I was provided a Tommie Copper outfit at no charge for the purpose of a product review and giveaway. I was not compensated in any other way. All opinions are my own, and I am not obligated to give them a positive review. If I hated them, I'd tell you

Hubby bought a trampoline last weekend. We don't have kids, so we have to act like kids to keep us young. He thought it would be fun, so we headed to Academy Sports last Sunday afternoon and picked one up. By the time I got home from work on Monday, he had it put together and we were ready for a jumpfest! I hereby declare April the month of jumping!

The trampoline is great for working out. I bounced around for just a few minutes and my heart was seriously pumping. It's easy on the joints and just downright fun. Hubby does back flips and other tricks, but I am not that brave yet. I couldn't help but have a giant smile on my face like a little kid as I jumped on a giant trampoline. Fitness is fun!

Trouble is Brewing
I thought the new trampoline would be the perfect opportunity to test out my new Tommie Copper compression gear that they sent me for a product review and giveaway...and I wasn't going to let a little rain get in the way.

The Trampoline Workout

Please attempt any new work out at your own risk.
When Tommie Copper contacted me about hosting a giveaway of their compression fitness apparel, I was excited to try it out and give you the opportunity to win it. My blogging friend Elle from Eat Run Sail has been raving about this brand for some time, so I knew I was getting into something good.

They sent me the women's camisole compression tank and compression capri pants. When I think of compression, I think of so-tight-I-can't-breathe, so I was pleasantly surprised at how light weight and comfortable they were. I really doesn't even feel like compression, it was so comfortable. If I can get the benefits of compression without suffering for it realizing it, that's even better!

The cool thing about Tommie Copper is that it is copper-infused apparel with compression that claims to offer increased performance, recovery and pain relief during your workouts and everyday activities. Copper is infused into the yarns and releases ions that provide anti-microbial protection, skin benefits and helps you feel better. Pretty cool, right?

What I Thought

The compression camisole tank: I love this camisole. It is super light weight and so comfortable, that not only did I wear it to work out, I also wore it under my clothes for work too. I love the longer length and the fit on this tank. It is easily my new favorite piece of apparel. My only issue is that the Tommie Copper logo started to peel off after a few washes. I did wash it a lot because I wanted to wear it almost every day, so it may have taken a beating in my washing machine day after day. Plus hubby does laundry, so I can't guarantee that the washing instructions were followed exactly, so it might have been my own fault. It's not a big deal to me, just thought I would mention it as part of my honest review.


The compression capri pants: The Capri length is my favorite silhouette. These are also light weight and comfortable, and they offer compression benefits without feeling all squeezed in. When Tommie Copper sent me the samples, I sized-up because I was thinking of traditional compression and I didn't want them to be too tight. I didn't need to do that at all, my regular size would have been just fine (so consider that if you are thinking of ordering). I wore these capri pants for my regular run, for some trampoline jumping, and also just a lot just lounging around the house. They are just about perfect for any activity!

    1. You should be able to log in using a Facebook account. Did it work for you? I tried to look if I could find you in the entries but I didn't see anything under WoodBridge Boys Crew - what name did you use to enter? I can check if I got it if you want.

  4. Oh trampolines are NO JOKE!!! What a work out. Whenever we visit my parents (we are in a NYC apartment, no trampolines to be found here!) there is always a mandatory romp on the trampoline. Our little girl loves it. They're also great to lay out on in the summer too to sneak in a few minutes of tanning ;)

  74. You are always in control of how high you jump and just how much energy you use on a trampoline. Also there is a great benefit of this trampoline rather than a complete size trampoline mainly because it can be utilized just about anywhere you want.
