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.
It is time to dig into this month's StrideBox and check out the goods
Fact: I am a sucker for all things peanut butter. I mean, if I could eat my weigh in peanut butter I would be happy! I pretty much squealed when I saw the Peanut Butter Coco Apocalypse in this month's StrideBox. It is basically a peanut butter filled brownie without the guilt.
Between work, running, the gym, and trying to have somewhat of a personal life, I am on the go A LOT and I am trying to do better avoiding vending machines and drive-thrus, so 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.
Are you one that needs a little extra "boost" before heading out on your run or knocking out a workout at the gym? We can probably all use a little extra boost from time to time and if caffeine is your thing, Sword might just be the product for you. Sword chewable caffeine tablets deliver caffeine in a simple, yet powerful form with a release 50 mg of clean caffeine in one great-tasting chewable tablet – perfect for use on the go. Sword can be used pre-workout or during for fatigue.
I already guilty of consuming too much caffeine as is, so I will probably be passing this along to a friend to try out.
Electro Delytes Sports Candy are based on a traditional Turkish Delight candy recipe with a refreshing citrus taste. Don't let the term "sports candy" fool you though because these are a 2 piece bar with electrolytes and composed with simple carbs to give you energy before, during, or after your run/workout without being harsh on your stomach. Since I can't use traditional running gels for mid-run fuel, this is definitely something that I am interested in trying out on my next run to help me power through the miles and feel great along the way.
It isn't often that I find products in my StrideBox that I am already familiar with, but this month I did twice. I had the opportunity to try out Tailwind's newest product, Rebuild Recovery, when if first launched earlier this year and LOVED it! It is a great addition to the Tailwind line. Whether you are a fan of Tailwind's Endurance Fuel or just in need of a new recovery product, I recommend checking out Rebuild to help you replenish your glycogen levels with carbohydrates, rebuild muscles with complete proteins and rehydrate and restore electrolytes.
ShowerPill is another one of my "must haves" in my gym bag and race bag. Since I am always on the go, there are a lot of times that I run errands or head to brunch after my race or workout. Since I don't always have time to shower beforehand and I don't want to go totally smelly and nasty, I love being able to wipe off and freshen up with my ShowerPill Body Wipes. I feel clean and smell better with one convenient wipe.
I always love the bonus "StrideBox Essentials" items in my StrideBox each month. These are usually little pieces of running gear that you didn't know that you needed (shoe laces, running pouches, waterproof bags, running lights, etc). Since I am always packing snacks for work or working out and my race bag always has some drinks in it, I am loving this small ionic insulated "runch bag". It is the perfect size to throw a few snacks and drinks in and keep them cold on the go (especially during this hot summer months)!
