Train Trendy with Catchies!

Giveaway has ended. Thank you to all who entered!

catchies4We love gymnastics and I love to share about all the pretty leotards we find and the best gym equipment out there for your how gym! One thing I never talk about is something very real and plagues every single gymnast at one time or another…rips and blisters, specifically those on wrists due to grips. These are very painful and can be caused by the constant rubbing of the grips so, wristbands are a must! Wristbands create a barrier between the grip its self and the gymnasts wrist, but heres the thing not all wristbands are created equal and in fact some really shouldn’t be worn under grips {I’ve had the bloody wrist to back that up} For the most part if you look most girls are wearing the basic terry cotton sweat wristbands under their grips, but they are just not very comfortable, they are bulky and can get really itchy. Gabbi is SUPER picky about texture and I’m here to tell you those are not her cup of tea! She HATES them and if she does wear them its not fun! What the heck is a mom to do? Protecting her wrists there MUST, so, friends I would like to formally introduce you to Catchies!

About Catchies:

Created by a gymnastics coach/mom looking to shake things up and make bands FOR GYMNASTS!

Tired of the wrist and hand rips, the slippery bulky wristbands, rough fabrics, and PLAIN options….. We decided things needed to change! That is how we came up with our patented wristbands! The unique length and premium fabric and fit are softer, super-safe, and protective!


Through high quality and fun accessories, we make sure all gymnasts can show their style and train trendy!

We know gymnasts are the hardest working athletes in the world.  Catchies wants to help put the “happy” in gymnastics.

At Catchies we also LOVE our wildlife!!

We believe it is our responsibility (and we all know how responsible gymnasts are!) to take care of the at-risk animals we share our planet with! Catchies gives 10% or more to proven and trusted wildlife conservation organizations, and efforts.

Catchies is a green company with 100% RECYCLED, RECYCLABLE and/or COMPOSTABLE packaging!


catchies5After reading about Catchies I was hooked! Not only is Heather {the mom behind Catchies} the best and loves to give back but she has also created wristbands that are not only cute but they are soft and not bulky at all yet still give AWESOME protection! I love their #TRAINTRENDY! How cute is that!

catchies3From the moment Gabbi’s Catchies arrived she LOVED them! She immediately commented on how “soooooooooft” they are! They are not bulky at all, in fact they are very slim fitting! Catchies are double layered so they have give all the protection your gymnasts needs while not having the extra bulky that those above mentioned terry ones have. They did not exacerbate existing healing blisters which was a huge win!

Gabbi loves wearing them during bar and vault training. Catchies actually fit perfectly under her wrist stabilizers, she wears Tiger Paws. These can also rub and become uncomfortable without a barrier, prior to Catchies she couldn’t wear any bands under them because they were just too bulky, Catchies for the win AGAIN!


So lets be real here, one wristband pet peeve I have {since my gymnastics days} is that they snag like crazy, especially if the grips used have velcro wrist closures. Our Catchies have not snagged once at all, they look beautiful even after hours of wear!

Gabbi doesn’t wear grips full time yet and I really wanted to make sure they were used to their full capacity so her friend used Catchies during her level 7 team practice! The verdict? “AMAZING!” her mom ordered her two pair before they even left the gym, now if that isn’t a glowing review I don’t know what is! My hope is that all the teams at our gym will start transitioning to Catchies wristbands!!

Catchies currently offer nine different prints/colors with an additional customizable option! These nine styles with without a doubt have your gymnast swooning! Check em out:

You love them don’t you?! We are basically dying to get out hands on ALL the adorable prints, especially the Llama and Halloween Catchies! I love the black and white options too! Get this…these bands are $14.99 {$19.99 for the competition styles} AMAZING right! So this means your gymnasts can have protected wrists and awesome style without breaking the bank!! YAY!
I want to extend a HUGE thank you to Heather at Catchies for partnering with me! You are awesome!
