Giving Back on Boxing Day

Merry and Bright

Today is Boxing Day, a day to traditionally give back, and we are feeling generous! For each order placed today, we will match the order total in a donation to the Special Olympics. Spread joy! 

UK Distributor:

Hello to all our friends in the UK!  Things just became a bit bolder across the pond!  Though our PeacePads™ have traveled the globe and are used by skaters around the world, they now have a more permanent home in the UK.  Life is busy, but it has become a bit simpler for you and quite a lot bolder . . . PeacePads™ can now be ordered directly inside the United Kingdom!

We are thrilled to introduce you to our new UK distributor of PeacePads™, by Jo Lucas.  Jo, an Orthotist and figure skater herself, most definitely understands what falling in figure skating is all about.  As she shared on her Skate Safe Facebook page, “Phew that was a hard hit on the ice this morning! Thank goodness I was wearing my PeacePads! No bruises today!”

So if you skate in the UK, PeacePads™, the ever-popular figure skating padding, are now closer to home!

I'm Dreaming of an "Ice" Christmas

Skater's Gifts

Every figure skater remembers that skating gift under the tree—whether it was her first pair of skates, the skate necklace she wore constantly, her first private lessons, or when she skated a bit too much that year and all of her gloves were worn (so she got a bunch of fun striped gloves!) :)

Help your skater to reach his or her dreams this year with these Christmas gifts:

Warm Hearts



It's cold outside.  For figure skaters, it’s also cold inside.  (That is, until you warm up and start practicing—then it’s just right!)  But still, after a couple of sessions—especially if you’re drilling rockers and counters and twizzles for a session or two—then you get a little chilly in your fingers and toes.

                  After a long (and fun) day at the rink, sometimes a cup of tea or cider or hot chocolate is just the thing that warms you up.  (And check it out, apple cider is good for you.)  Why not share some of that warmth with those around you?  It’s almost Thanksgiving, and we are grateful for great parents, coaches, and friends.  Say thanks to mom and dad for spending their day at your competition in the cold with their favorite hot beverages.  (They’ve cheered for you all these years, haven’t they?)  When you come to the rink for your lessons, bring a couple of hot drinks for your coaches. (They’ve spent days and weeks and months and years helping you reach your dreams, haven’t they?)  And don’t forget your friends.  (They’ve encouraged you, made you laugh, and been there with you every practice, haven’t they?)

We are thankful for skates and ice and figure skating.  We are thankful for our memories and dreams.  But we are especially thankful for the people who made them possible.

Peace and Prayers for Paris

Apple Cider and Autumn's Antioxidants


The trees have changed colors and brightly colored leaves are scattered around under the clear bright blue sky. We are wrapping our warmest knit scarves around our necks and heading to the apple orchard.  Turns out, it's good for us!

Maybe you love apple cider as much as we do. It's hearty and full flavor is about the only food in the world that can really sum up "autumn."  More than just a treat, it is also one of the foods especially good for you.  Apple cider's health benefits surpass those of clear apple juice.  Jan Oszmianski, from the Agricultural University of Wroclaw in Poland, has studied clear apple juice in comparison with cloudy apple juice (cider).  Utilizing a new technique called electron paramagnetic resonance, they effectively were able to compare clear and cloudy juice's polyphenol content.  Polyphenols are a type of antioxidant that gives fruits their color.

The polyphenols are 2.6 to 5.3 times more in cloud apple juice (cider) than in clear apple juice.  Cider is 1.5 to 1.8 times more powerful in antioxidant properties.  Commercial clear juices (compared to the lab-produced clear juices used in the study) have one tenth of the antioxidants of cloudy juice.

Additionally, people who frequently eat apples have a reduced risk for lung cancer.  Apples' polyphenols can reduce your risk of cancer and improve your brain function!

This fall, join us and enjoy some apple cider.  It's the perfect warm drink after a day of chilly training at the rink!  You'll know that not only are you enjoying the taste of fall, but you are also getting autumnal antioxidants and health benefits, too!
