StrideBox Review - August 2014 - Fitness Subscription Box


What is it? StrideBox
How Much? $15 per month, plus $5 shipping
What's in it? 6-8 curated samples of performance products, running accessories, gear, and nutritional products to enhance your active lifestyle

StrideBox is a fitness subscription box aimed at runners. Each month, StrideBox sends out a box full of "Stuff Runners Want". StrideBox may include everything from apparel and accessories, to nutrition products and performance supplements. The products included are focused on running, training, and recovery.

I recently took up running again, after being off for a year due to a foot injury. I decided to sign up for StrideBox as a treat to myself, and as motivation to keep at it.

First look

StrideBox is only $15 per month, plus $5 shipping to Canada. They accept payment via credit card or PayPal. Boxes ship the first week of the month, and you can cancel any time.

Hammer Nutrition Recoverite in Vanilla (1 serving, $3.50)
Formula provides exactly what your body needs after training/racing.

MRM Hydration Factor in Natural Citrus ($1.33)

Unlike typical flavored electrolyte drinks, this offers increased intracellular update to optimize your hydration level. 

The August StrideBox included 7 products valued at $22.80. Most of the products also come with promo codes to get full size products. I was incredibly happy to see the Lock Laces because I almost bought a pair recently. I don't love the emerald green colour (they won't match my pink Asics) so I might use the promo code provided and order another pair. The rest of the sports nutrition products will be handy for all my outdoor activities, like hiking and cycling, not just running. The SportLeg supplements are very interesting and I think they will be great for uphill hikes or long bike rides. I would love to see more apparel or accessories type products in future boxes, but this is a good start and I'm happy with my first StrideBox.
