Our sole aim is to offer useful, high-quality guides, recommendations, and reviews to improve your athletic pursuits and knowledge.

This means no sponsored links, posts, or other promotional content. And there is absolutely no AI-generated content on our site. Zero.

Editorial Guidelines for Compression Athlete

Our site prioritizes the following editorial pillars when producing content:

  • Accuracy: All content is carefully researched, fact-checked, and curated.

  • Timeliness: Up-to-date picks and advice for each new season and advancement. 

  • Expertise: Input and personal experience from seasoned athletes and experts.

When making picks or recommendations on our site, we generally apply the following formula:

Performance x Price x Convenience.

In other words, we’re looking for super effective options that are cost friendly and very simple to use.

Additionally, Compression Athlete only recommends or includes products as a “top pick” if we’ve personally used or would use it ourselves. 

We also look for picks from athletic brands and companies that have great reputations, proven track records, and science to back up their claims.

Compression Athlete would never recommend a product or service that has known drawbacks, poses a safety risk, or causes harm in any form.

You can see us demonstrate and review many of our activewear and recovery device recommendations over on our YouTube Channel.
