2019 SELF Fitness Awards

November 07, 2019

WOW, we made it on the SELF Fitness Awards two years in a row! And we placed in TWO categories!

SELF tasked 24 fitness professionals, influencers, and editors to test a range of products for this year’s SELF Fitness Awards. They tested over 250 workout products in a range of sizes, and even had a requirement for inclusivity (although, simply going up to size XL is far from inclusive).

Our SUPERHOLD™ Pocket Leggings in Black are among The 22 Best New Workout Leggings of 2019.

Best Leggings for HIIT: Superfit Hero Pocket Leggings, $89

Reviewers loved this workhorse legging for its overall shining great features, like a waistband that stays put, pockets for your stuff, and substantial-feeling fabric that passes the squat test. They also come in a nice range of sizes, from XS to 5XL.

One reviewer says: “The fabric is pretty nice, soft, and has some thickness. There’s also a nice stretch, and they passed the squat test with flying colors! The tag says they require a line-dry after washing (which I did), and they held up just fine. The high waistband is really nice. I also really like the idea of the side pocket (though I didn’t use it, lol). The fabric is a little on the thicker side and took a little while to dry, however no sweat showed through. These leggings were super easy to get on and off, and I’d definitely wear them again.” (Size tested: XL)

Sizes: XS–5XL

Best Low-Impact Crop Top Sports Bra: Superfit Hero Sport Crop Bra, $55 

This crop top is perfect for yoga, Pilates, barre, cycling—or anywhere else that you just want to wear a bra without a tank. The flatlock seams mean you don’t have to worry about chafing in weird places, while the high neckline makes it perfect if you want more coverage on top. Even better: The sizing options for this bra range from S to 5XL.

One reviewer says: “The fabric on this top is super soft and comfortable, and it’s holding up great after several washes (I’ve been air drying it). It’s easy enough to get on and off, and the band around my rib cage is snug. Plus: There’s no need to wear a tank top over it—it looks great on its own!” (Size tested: small; typically wears size 34B)

Sizes: S–5XL
