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 want to have the best equipment for training and racing.  We do our research and read the reviews before buying bikes, shoes, watches, etc.  We also understand the importance of Skin Equipment, which is why we created SKIN STRONG.

More important than equipping your body is equipping your soul!  Want to see the research?  What’s the best research tool for equipping your soul? The Bible!

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. Stand firm therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Eph 6:10-17
