woven for strength and no-bulk performance, this four-way stretch fabric moves with us and stays out of our way
why we made this
Designed with squats and lunges in mind, these shorts are a cross-training go-to. The waistband, side slits and wide panel between the legs work together to ensure you keep it clean while you clean and press.

no-gape waistband is comfortable and engineered to stay put while you move
made with four-way stretch fabric and an athletic fit
added slit for mobility
secure zipper pocket with key loop
fit + function
designed for: sweat (cross-training, gym, run, yoga)
I ordered these based on a set of positive reviews and thought they would be useful. Unfortunately when they arrived, I got a lot closer look than what I saw on the website. The style I ordered was called "crooked stripe", but what arrived looked like a zebra pattern. No self respecting dude would show up at the gym in these.

awesome - but tear easy!!!!
i have 2 pairs of these shorts - they are great, but i got a small hole in the seat of these after i did some sit ups on a trail surface. i've never had this problem before with my other shorts, so be careful about this when you wear these shorts.

If only they had cool colors!
These shorts are nothing shy of amazing. They are extremely comfortable and perfect for virtually any sport or activity. As a CrossFit athlete/coach they only leave ONE THING to be desired...and that is that they don't come in any fun colors! Come on Lulu! The women's shorts come in more colors and patterns than I can count and then you have the Assert short: black, grey, green, black, black/grey, black again... I love your products but for the love of sweet baby jesus will you please give us some more bold color and design options?!?!

These brought the BF to Lulu
My bf and I do Crossfit together so he's seen Lulu around but never been in a store himself. I finally dragged him along one day and got him to try these on and he can't stop talking about how great they are. He has similar shorts by Reebok and some CF-specific bands but loves these best - the length is perfect, split is just right, material is durable and stretchy, and the fit at the waist is just the right place and snugness to stay put without being uncomfortable. He went back and got a second pair and I'll be stocking up with even more if Lulu brings out more colors. For reference, he's about 5'7" and lean, and the size small fits him well.

As a fitness trainer who is training for a marathon, I loved the fir of these shorts. Great for training, running and just a casual wear out in the city. Big Lulu FAN.

As a CrossFitter I'm very particular on how my activewear fits. Some shorts have been too long and catch the knees, others designed for lifting show off way too much man-thigh with the side splits. These are PERFECT for functional fitness needs!
