Oh no! It took me forever to decide to order shorts from you and I see you are no longer taking orders-I LOVE these shorts and I hope this doesn’t mean they won’t be available sometime in the near future! Come back Goal Five!

While you’re on your water break, PLEASE don’t redesign the Fast and Free shorts. They are perfection, I get asked about them ALL the time, I rave about them, and I basically live in them for all athletic pursuits and all summer. I came back to order more, because I have loved them for years!

Love your products. Please come back soon. I would love to see you carry light weight running shorts with a pocket for my phone and enough compression so the phone doesn’t bounce around and make my shorts fall off. Also bright pink would be fun. Come back!!!

Please let the world know when you guys are up and running! It took me until I was close to 50 to find such an amazing brand that fits as well as yours does. You’re soooo missed right now as I head into summertime.

I fervently hope this is truly a pause and not a goodbye. It’s not often that I get to support a brand both for its mission and it’s products, and I basically live in your pants and shorts. Please come back after this break!

I absolutely LOvE this line. I bought a pair of joggers and wear them everywhere. I was finally able to talk myself into buying another pair as they’ve been approved to wear to work. I work in a kindergarten classroom and was sad to see that they’re not
Currently available and you guys are on a break. I hope you come back soon! You’re my favorite!

Praise God! I thought you folks were closing shop for good! The above sounds like you are just taking some time to reflect. For now, THANK YOU for making comfortable, high quality, well fitting clothes. I am going to be 57 years old and it’s SOOOO hard to find workout gear that looks good, performs well, and fits properly. You and your mission are amazing! Keep up the good work and enjoy a much needed break.

Please come back and be true to your mission! Please don’t sell out to mainstream fitness clothing trends or sizing. Don’t lose your dedication to form and function, it’s what sets you apart and why I keep coming back. I could do with a wider variety of colors but your sizing and fit is for real women—whether they are current athletes or struggling to maintain a semblance of their younger selves.

I sincerely wish you the best in this new next step. I absolutely adore your Excel shorts and have them in every color (except black camo since it was sold out!). They are amazing, fit well and wash up great. I had given up on shorts since I had not been able to find any that I liked and then you guys popped up on the scene.

I look forward to Goal*Five 2.0 in 2024!
