While every product might not be the best fit for you, you can typically find a friend that might want to try it out instead. The best part about StrideBox is that it is just $19.95/month and you can cancel your subscription any time if you find that you aren't enjoying your box.
Each month when I receive my StrideBox, I am honestly like a kid on Christmas morning. I absolutely cannot wait to rip into my box and see what kind of goodies await me.
One of the cool features of StrideBox is that each box comes with a "Stride Guide" inside. This guide gives you a breakdown of the products as well as information such as when to use the products in your workout/run and the retail price. To be honest, I typically ignore the "Stride Guide" until I am done unloading the box so I don't ruin the surprise.
I see Picky Bars in my Instagram feeds a lot. While my friends swear by them, I have not really tried them. I was crazy excited to find a Picky Bar in this month's StrideBox. I received the flavor Blueberry Boomdizzle which is said to taste just like a bakery treat without that guilt. I am not a huge blueberry fan, but I absolutely love berries in general, so I am pretty pumped to try this one out. I am thinking it will be like a little taste of summer. I checked out the Picky Bars website and there are a number of flavors I would certainly like to try out in the future.
Untapped's Lemon Tea Mapleaid is made with unrefined, pure maple sugar that has the minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants to make it an ideal athletic fuel. Real lemons give it the citrus taste, black tea gives it the natural caffeine boost and a touch of sea salt tops it off.
I will be honest, I am not a big fan of tea, but I am willing to give this a go and see how I like it. Hey, that is the whole point of StrideBox right? You don't know you don't like something unless you try it.
I admit it, I am a heavy sweater so my running gear doesn't exactly smell so fresh after a workout or run. Defunkify is safe on performance fabrics, residue free, removes sweat stains, is environmentally friendly and safe for HE washing machines.
Defunkify detergent goes beyond athletic apparel and is is ready to take on workout gear such as shoes, hydration packs, yoga mats, towels, and more. Running gear isn't cheap so I want to make sure that I take care of my gear and also not stink before I even start my workout.
Honestly, one of the dreaded words of running is "blisters"! First, blisters are just gross (being totally honest), plus they can hurt like crazy! I used to be very prone to blisters until I started running in my PRO Compression socks, but event still, those pesky little things would tend to pop up. The science of blisters is pretty simple - friction creates blisters. 2Toms Blister Shield is a powder that goes into your sock and creates a virtually frictionless surface to keep your feet dry and blister free. Outside of running, this would be great for those vacations where you are on your feet tons (think amusement parks or cities where you do sightseeing and tours by foot).
I love pockets! When I find a pair of running shorts or pants with good pockets I am absolutely thrilled. Sometimes the most comfortable and functional running apparel doesn't have pockets (or just not enough). Sometimes you just need a small pocket to through your key into or a few dollars - nothing much. This is exactly why I was instantly intrigued when I saw Go Pocket in my StrideBox. Basically Go Pockets are temporary pockets that adhere to your clothes to store your stuff and will last for several wears and washes. The best part? They are made from fabric made from plastic water bottles in the USA. Each packet contains the equivalent of 3 upcycled bottles.
