5 Fitness Subscription Boxes You Need In Your Life
Is there anything more depressing than coming home each day to a pile of bills? If that sounds familiar, signing up for a subscription box guarantees you receive something more interesting than your overdraft statement each month. You might have heard of the usual food and beauty boxes but did you know that there’s plenty of subscription boxes for gym-goers too? Whether it’s a monthly dose of protein, workout gear or exercise equipment, here are the fitness boxes you need to subscribe to...
1. Fitty London
If you’re always looking to try something new (and need help separating the facts from the fads) Fitty London’s box is packed with the latest, nutritionist-approved health and fitness products. With everything from protein products to supplements and snacks for your gym bag; it’s a great way to discover new brands that you wouldn’t find in the supermarket aisle. Boxes start from just £26 (including P&P) and are often worth an excess of £50. A great all-rounder.
2. The Unthinkable by Muscle Food
In need of an upheaval? If your current workout and diet plan just isn’t cutting it, Muscle Food’s ‘The Unthinkable’ subscription might be what you need. We’re not going to lie: it sounds hardcore (and expensive) but the testimonials don’t lie. Subscribe for three months and each week you’ll receive breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks direct to your door; alongside a 12 week workout programme. Prices start from £60 a week and are tailored to your goals (whether you’re looking to lose fat, stay toned or get ripped).
3. The Fit Box
This no-frills fitness box is a bargain at only £14.99. With specific male and female boxes, each Fit Box subscriber receives a copy of Men’s/Women’s Health magazine (worth over £4 by itself), along with a 5 to 8 fitness snacks and drinks. If you often find yourself buying snacks at the gym, this box is likely to save you money and the hassle.
4. My Fit Fix
My Fit Fix is a new premium fitness clothing box for women. Hate faffing around in changing rooms? My Fit Fix sends you new workout gear to you each month (all matched to your size and preferences by filling out a quick questionnaire before you order). Not only will you receive a complete workout outfit but there’s added extras such as skin protectors and workout guides. Priced at £49.99, the latest box includes a sports bra, workout vest AND leggings from funky London brand Gymversus; fantastic value considering the leggings alone retail at over £50.
Protein-lovers might remember Boostbox’s advent calendar, which went viral last December. Now they’re back with a subscription box with a difference. Each box contains 12 items and centres around eight different components: including ‘build’ which offers protein-packed sweet treats; ‘the bar’ which contains shake recipes and ingredients (such as nut butters and powders); a ‘boostbox’ progress book to log your workouts; ‘beatz’ a curated playlist and ‘bargainz’ with exclusive discount codes. This box pretty much has every aspect of your workout covered.
