About Us

  • It was love at first tri for John!

  • Love of the sport of running and triathlons was contagious and spread to wife, Chandi…

  • then, to the kids starting with the oldest…

  • then to our youngest

  • then, extended family (now UK Skin Strong directors)

  • Passion for the sport turned into passion for creating the best skin equipment for athletes.

Someone motivated us to get off the couch and sign up for our first race. Now we train for marathons, triathlons, and Ironman’s. We thrive on competition and love the confidence that comes from accomplishing a goal you couldn’t imagine yourself attempting not that long ago.

We travel to competitions with our family and the new family that we have found in the running, cycling, and triathlon communities. No matter what level of training or competition we are in now, we share a common bond.

We realize we have been blessed with talents and abilities and feel a responsibility to stay healthy for our loved ones. We also want to be that “someone” who motivates others to get off the couch and join us. Just like you, we don’t want to let the nagging discomfort of blisters, chafing, and hot spots hold us back from achieving our goals. That’s why we created SKIN STRONG. You can be strong and be comfortable! We have spent years testing our products in the “field” and know it works.

We are proud to say you won’t find a better product or a better value! Don’t take our word for it, read our product reviews.

About our Shield


As athletes, we make careful choices in all the products we use to protect our skin. Protecting our souls is even more important. Eph. 6 defines the “armor” that protects our soul.

Never be uncomfortable – today and eternally!
