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.
Bob’s Bars are made with whole grain oats, peanut butter and organic honey. With five flavors and give yourself a treat you can feel good about eating, including Peanut Butter Jelly & Oats, Peanut Butter Chocolate & Oats, Peanut Butter Apple Spice & Oats, and Peanut Butter Coconut & Oats, there is a flavor for every peanut butter lover.
Fact: I LOVE snacks! Between work, running, the gym, and trying to have somewhat of a personal life, I am on the go A LOT. In order to avoid things like vending machines and drive-thru, I try to have healthy snacks with me for when I get a little hangry. I am always looking for new snacks to throw in my purse, gym bag, or desk drawer to keep me fueled and ready to go.
Siren Protein Bites are bite-sized treats using only vegan, gluten-free, and non-GMO ingredients, and added in a boost of plant-based protein to our recipes.a
Eat Your Coffee caffeinated energy bars are organic, vegan, gluten-free, non-GMO snack bars that are caffeinated with cup full of antioxidant-rich coffee. Most of us suffer from mid-day slumps where we can use an extra boost and with caffeine and superfoods included, you get a boost and muscle recovery all in one.
I will probably have coffee mugs thrown at me in rage, but I don't like coffee...at all. I love the smell of coffee grounds, but despise the taste of coffee (or coffee flavored things). Don't worry though, I have plenty of friends that will be happy to take this off my hands.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE gummies. In fact, gummies have been a much loved run fuel choice for me over the years. Any time I get a chance to try out some chew or "gummy fuel" options, I get pretty pumped. When I saw Kramp Krushers in this month's StrideBox, I got pretty excited. Designed for pre-workout, Kramp Krushers solves energy depletion, electrolyte loss, and muscle cramping with its carbohydrates and 300mg of sea salt.
Hydration is one of the most important parts of a running or workout program. You sweat so much and exert a lot of energy, you have to replenish your body properly and stay hydrated. GU Electrolyte Tabs are made to keep you hydrated and replace sodium to keep you going strong.
I have my favorite electrolyte replacement hydration for during my runs, so I am not too inclined to really switch things up. Typically when I find electrolyte mixes in my StrideBox I pass them along to friends who might be interested in the product, but the these sound like a great option for throughout the day hydration and I am pretty excited to try the Tri-Berry flavor soon.
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 Sport Shield is a towelette that you rub where ever desired to create a virtually frictionless surface to keep 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 LOVE LOVE these things! I have never had the Rundana brand, but I love running "buffs" and "tubes". They are nice and lightweight tubes that can be used in a variety of different ways such as headbands, neck warmers, earwarmers, and more. In the heat of summer, they are excellent to use as a headband or a sweatband. Once winter rolls around I will use it more to keep my ears or neck warm.
As I mentioned earlier, not every sample is going to be something that directly fits your life and likes. However, I really like the concept behind subscription boxes because you can try new things that you might not have known about before. StrideBox does a great job providing various products for pre-run, during, and post-run needs. The products included are definitely geared towards runners and other athletes and are a great fit for you and your fitness goals.
