At SELF, we’re doing things a bit differently this year (isn’t everyone!?). In place of our annual Fitness Awards, this year SELF will highlight the best new sports bras and leggings in our SELF Certified Sports Bras and Leggings Awards.
To determine our winners, we’ll be tapping our editors and our network of respected athletes and trainers to rigorously test each item during various types of workouts, keeping tabs on key factors like performance, fit, comfort, and style. If you are a brand interested in sending apparel for consideration, below you’ll find the details about exactly what we’re looking for.
Oh, and if you’re interested in submitting fitness gear, trackers, workout accessories, gym bags, workout equipment, and more—we’d still love to hear from you! Please check out our ongoing product reviews where we regularly test and write about our favorite items. For more information, email email@example.com and put “Product Review” in the subject line.
