Here is my order invoice. The merchandise total is $372 and the keep-all discount is $111.60, so factoring that in plus the $20 credit, this box would cost $260.40 to keep all five items. (Roughly $52.80 an item).
These are my preferences for the Fitness subscription.
Colosseum Circuit Tank in Red Ruby – Cost to Keep $59
I really like this tank. It has thick, padded straps, which makes it a more comfortable than some of my workout tops with thin straps. It has a built-in bra with removable cups, moisture wicking technology, and the stripe under the bra is mesh to give you a little more ventilation.
Colosseum Perfect Fit Training Leggings – Cost to keep $69
I love the red stitching detail on these leggings. (I tend to always grab black bottoms for workouts, but I like them to have a little design).
And these leggings have a zipper pocket at the back:
These leggings are high-compression (a good thing for me), and the fabric is lightweight/thin too. (AKA – motivation for me to workout more so I look better in them!)
Luxe Transition Hoodie – Cost to Keep $125
I actually received this hoodie before in the first Wantable Fitness box I reviewed. (I wouldn’t hold the duplicate item against Wantable since that box was sent for review purposes a while ago. If this was a continuing subscription I was paying for I would definitely reach out to customer care though).
This is a great hoodie – and it’s one of those pieces if I saw online I would say there’s no way it is worth $125, but after trying it on, it was hard to take off! It’s a thick fabric, and it somehow manages to be amazingly cozy/comfortable and also flattering.
Climawear Seamless Nordic Hoodie in Red – Cost to Keep $50
I’m pretty torn on this item. I suspect it ended up in this box since it looks like they were going for a black/red theme (which I appreciate). However, this is the type of item I would expect to receive in a November or December box – not an April one!
Seasonal issues aside, I love the idea of a festive/seasonal workout top – I don’t have anything like it. And it’s very comfortable, and I love how the neckline on the hoodie drapes.
Colosseum Metric Elite Sprint Legging – Cost to Keep $69
The bold print on these leggings is fun, but with the white fabric you have to pick your underwear wisely! It has the same back pocket too:
Verdict: In past Wantable Fitness boxes, I had difficulty finding some of the items for sale online, and wondered if they were older stock. (Since this is a full price subscription, I want everything to be new stock). I’m happy to see that with this box, 4 out of the 5 items are in stock online at the full prices listed by Wantable. (The Colosseum Metric Elite Sprint Leggings even show up on Colosseum’s New Arrivals Section).
I think this subscription is for someone who wants the convenience of trying on items at home with a super easy returns process and would also value the opportunity to discover new workout clothing brands. It’s a specific demographic, but I think Wantable has been improving these boxes over the past few months to offer a better service. I like that my recent boxes have had a color coordinated feel to them, and I hope to see all items in future boxes available online at full retail prices – that makes it feel like a much better value if you decide to keep several items to get the 20-30% discount.
