Welcome Fall With Our Picks of the Best Health and Fitness Products of the Season


The weather is changing and the days are getting shorter, which means Fall is coming. We're looking forward to cool morning runs, cozy long pants, and all the Autumn flavors (hello, apple and pumpkin!). Here are some of our favorite fitness picks to keep you moving and motivated this September.

SmartSweets Sweet Fish


"I'm already a huge fan of SmartSweets Gummy Bears, so when I saw the company was releasing new candy, I knew I had to get my hands on it. (Thankfully, our friends at SmartSweets hooked me up.) The Sweet Fish ($20 for six bags) remind me of Swedish Fish, which is one of my all-time favorite candies, just with much less sugar. One bag of Sweet Fish is only 80 calories and just three grams of sugar, with no sugar alcohols. Although there are 35 grams of carbs, 28 of those grams are from fiber, which means one bag has your entire day's worth of fiber. Obviously it's still candy, but when I'm craving something sweet, I'll reach for a bag of Sweet Fish!" — Christina Stiehl, assistant editor, Fitness

Simple Happy KitchenSimple Happy Kitchen

"The beautifully illustrated hardcover book Simple Happy Kitchen ($45), is perfect for adults and kids alike. It's a comprehensive guide to the plant-based diet and includes information on the health benefits of eating this way, as well as specifics like how to cook brown rice and the best sources of plant-based protein. It'd make a great gift for both those who are new to the plant-based diet and those who have been eating that way for years." — Jenny Sugar, contributing editor, Fitness

Hurom H-AA Slow Juicer

Huromm Slow Juicer

"I decided to do the 21-Day Clean Program, eliminating foods I eat often, like dairy and gluten. The program is not as strict as others, but it does require you to consume a juice or a smoothie for breakfast and dinner and one solid meal for lunch. I was getting extremely tired of my smoothie concoctions, and I didn't want to spend $20 a day going to my local juice shops. So, when Hurom sent me the H-AA Slow Juicer ($439), I was beyond excited. I'm happy to report that it has become my newest obsession. It's quiet, the juices are so smooth, and it can even make ice cream! But that will be after the cleanse." — Tamara Pridgett, assistant editor, Fitness

Lululemon Breeze by Jogger Squad

Breeze By Jogger Squad

"Lululemon just launched its 20-year collection, and I have all the feels! I remember when Lululemon opened its first store in my hometown — Ottawa, Canada — in the mid-2000s. I spent my high school days wearing my Lulu Groove Pants and Whisper Tank (which I hope will be brought back one day). Over the last 15 years, I have exclusively worn its leggings and shorts for dozens of half marathons and one full 26.2-miler. I get so excited when I find a Lulu piece I can wear to work, and right now I currently have my eyes on the Breeze by Jogger Squad($118). Paired with the right shoes and top, it is the perfect sporty-chic look with signature Lululemon comfort." — Genevieve Farrell Roston, video producer, Fitness

Reebok PureMove Sports Bra

Reebok PureMove Sports bra

"It's rare that I find a sports bra that's supportive but also comfortable. When Reebok gave me its new PureMove Bra ($60) to try out, I was skeptical; it looked like just another compression bra. But because the cups are more molded than a typical sports bra, I don't feel as constricted wearing this bra, yet it still feels supportive. I wore the PureMove Bra during a TRX class, a Megaformer workout, and a Barry's Bootcamp class, which means lots and lots of running. Even throughout three completely different workouts, I felt supported. Definitely recommend!" — CS

Asics RoadHawk FF 2

Asics RoadHawk

"I have extremely sensitive feet, and it's important that I have a pair of quality running shoes for all my long runs. I first tested the Asics RoadHawk running shoes ($100) at a Mile High Run Club, and I couldn't believe how supportive and lightweight they were. If you're looking for a shoe that's stylish, supportive, and lightweight, you've got to give this sneaker a shot." — TP

Athleta Stripe Mesh High-Neck Chi Tank

Athleta High Mesh Racerback top

"I was in desperate need of a new tank for the gym; luckily, Athleta gave me one to try out. When I saw this was high-neck, I was immediately interested since some tanks give me major cleavage when I'm in the middle of lifting weights or doing plyos — not what I want! This Athleta Stripe Mesh High-Neck Chi Tank ($36-$44) keeps me covered and is also lightweight and soft enough to feel comfortable throughout my entire workout. I went with the navy, but there are 22 colors to choose from!" — CS

Quay Australia I See You Glasses

Quay Australia I see you glasses

"Staring at my computer all day has taken a toll on my eyes, and recently, my right eye started twitching. I decided to try Quay Blue Light Computer Glasses ($60) since I am a fan of the brand's sunglasses. I was surprised that after a few days of wearing them (and continuing to stare at my computer), my eye-twitch went away. The blue-light lenses assist with blocking the blue light from screens to prevent symptoms of digital eye strain, which I was clearly suffering from. I also have to say, having received so many compliments on these glasses, I want to wear them all the time!" — GFR

Go Dash Dot Dash Pack

Go Dash Dot Dashpack Backpack

"I am a 'bags' lady. By that I mean, rather than carry one practical bag, I am usually weighed down by a handful of different totes (one for my computer, one for my lunch, one for my gym clothes, shoes, water bottle, etc.). However, I am now in a monogamous relationship with my Dash Pak ($168). This bag is designed to keep all of my items organized and includes a padded laptop section, shoe compartment, laundry pouch, water bottle holder, and even an area to stow my yoga mat. It's truly amazing how much this bag can store in such an organized way. I also love that it includes a detachable crossbody bag for times I don't need my entire backpack." — GFR

NutriBullet Pro

Nutribullet Pro

"I've always been a fan of making protein smoothies. But I've recently been exploring the art of making my own salad dressings and flavorful sauces, and the NutriBullet Pro ($80) makes this so easy. From spicy peanut sauce for my Buddha bowls to avocado pesto for my pasta and sugar-free lemon-garlic dressing to drizzle onto sautéed tofu or salads, this is a kitchen must have!" — JS
