We all want to be superheroes. Watch one plus-size athlete’s testimony, and check out Superfit Hero’s exciting new line of exercise clothes.
Last month, we featured a giveaway for a pair of Superfit Hero workout leggings. Their Kickstarter campaign has now concluded, and the new company has raised an incredible $55,000 from enthusiastic backers.
Superfit Hero, founded by Micki Krimmel, wants to make you — and everyone else, regardless of size — a workout superhero. Their exercise clothes line is available in sizes XS-3XL, and is designed with comfort in mind. For those of you training to be Black Widow, this line is for you!
One person in support of Superfit Hero? Athlete Lois Betancourt, a roller derby champion:
In the video, Lois explains that she always wanted to be a figure skater, but because of her weight, she wasn’t able to find a partner, or clothes that fit.
So she found roller derby, a more inclusive sport where she’s been able to shine.
As fans, we’re always motivated by powerful role models, and Superfit Hero has been showcasing a lot of badass, real-life women who have inspired us to up our own exercise game.
Although the Kickstarter campaign has now ended, you can still pre-order the Superfit Hero workout apparel: they’ve got the leggings, and lots of awesome tops and t-shirts for you to choose from. Check out their selection right here.
