Wantable Fitness Subscription Service Review – March 2015 Invoice

Here is my order invoice. The merchandise total is $346 and the keep-all discount is $103.80, so factoring that in plus the $20 credit, this box would cost $242.20 to keep all five items. (Roughly $48.44 an item).

Wantable Fitness Subscription Service Review – March 2015 Preferences

Here are my preferences for the Fitness subscription.

Wantable Fitness Subscription Service Review – March 2015 Jacket

Pink Lotus Power Up Jacket in Grey – Cost to keep $136

I can’t find this jacket on the Pink Lotus site (or anywhere online), so I’m not sure if that means it is older or newer stock, but I absolutely love it! In general I like black, streamlined workout clothing, but I still want the piece to have some design to them, so this is a perfect piece for me. The grey insert pieces are very flattering too.

Wantable Fitness Subscription Service Review – March 2015 Leggings

Pink Lotus Courage Bamboo Leggings – Cost to keep $76

These are another item that I can’t find online. I really like them though. They aren’t a high compression legging, but instead more of a legging/jogger hybrid. They are really soft and comfortable, but don’t add extra bulk like some jogger pants can. I think it is time for me to start shopping from Pink Lotus!

Wantable Fitness Subscription Service Review – March 2015 Bra

Rebecca Michaels Sports Bra in Rose Dot – Cost to Keep $56

I can’t find this bra for sale online, but I can’t find any Rebecca Michaels items online either. I like the material of this sports bra – it is super soft and comfortable. I would say it is best for low-impact workouts. This isn’t a print I would pick out as a workout top, but as a sports bra that goes under a top it’s fun. I definitely would not pay $56 for it though.

Wantable Fitness Subscription Service Review – March 2015 Tank

Climawear Aurora Space Dye Tank – Cost to keep $39

This tank has a lot of stretch, and a built-in-bra with removable cups. It’s comfortable, and I think a fair price too.

Wantable Fitness Subscription Service Review – March 2015 Tee

Climawear Caged Running Tee in Coral – Cost to Keep $39

This material of this top is really thin (not see-through), but just great for keeping things light in high-intensity workouts. I’m impressed with the quality of both of these Climawear tops for the price.

Verdict: I liked this Wantable Fitness Edit a lot more than my February box. The styles are much more in line with my personal tastes. All the prices this month seem relatively reasonable to me, with the exception of the sports bra. I’m also not sure if the Pink Lotus items are old stock, but if they are I wouldn’t want to pay full-retail for them.

I think Wantable Fitness is a good box if you are looking to discover new workout clothing brands and want to be able to try them on at home. (Anything you don’t like gets sent back with a free return shipping label). I also like that they offer you a discount if you keep even just three or four of the items (The 25% Stitch Fix discount only applies if you keep all five items). One thing I like about Stitch Fix and Wantable Fitness is that they send me items I wouldn’t buy if I saw them online, but after trying them on some are winners. It’s a good discovery tool that can help push me out of my comfort zone.

So, if you’re looking for that kind of service, this is a good option. If you’re looking to pick out the clothing, Fabletics is a great option too, and their price points are lower.

What do you think of the Wantable Fitness styling subscription service?

  1. I think this is just nuts price wise. Pieces that can’t even be found on the Web for prices that are way over the top. I can’t understand how they can compete with Fabletics for example… wow, I don’t mind paying a fair price for nice stuff but if I’m gonna pay that much may as well buy Lulu.

  2. OMG $76 for a pair of leggings? I have never paid more than $25 for a pair. And thought that was high.

  3. I think we mostly all agree that fabletics is by far the way to go. To each their own, of course and I agree with Liz that there must be a niche that they cater to, but honestly, I can’t see it being a big enough niche market to build a successful sub model on. I just don’t get it. If I hit the full on power ball lotto, I would still not be able to purchase, on principle, these high priced clothes that I’m going to sweat all over. Having said all that – thanks to Liz’s review, I will, however, be keeping an eye out for Pink Lotus on sale! That stuff is super cute : )

  4. I’m getting my 2nd box here shortly (if they would ever ship it) only because I forgot to cancel after my first box, which I had a coupon to try it for $5. (I kept a sports bra and with the $5 styling fee I paid + the $15 coupon, I think I only paid like an extra $15 for the bra. Which is still too much for someone who buys all her sports bras at Marshals and Target!) I have it marked that I want everything the cheapest they can get it so it takes forever for them to find them stuff. My first box I got took like an extra month to send. This box got charged March 30 and I haven’t received tracking yet. I even changed the tops price to the second level of cost. Seriously, unless you really can’t leave the house to go buy stuff, I wouldn’t subscribe to this. Even if you can’t leave the house, you can get way better stuff for cheaper just by shopping clearance on websites!

  5. I have done 3 wantables fitness boxes now and they have been all great. When I work out no one has anything like me and the quality has been very high. The variety and easy returns process have been great too.

    Despite the cost of some of the pieces I have been happy with everything and grateful to have something that isnt nike/zella/lululemon like everyone else has…have not tried fabulatics though!

  6. I know athletic clothing is very expensive in general, but these clothing are way overpriced. I just got a 3 piece outfit from fabletics on special intro price for 20, but normally it would have been 50, and it was really well made and cute. Even at Marshall’s/ tj max they have nice workout outfits that are cute. I just couldn’t imagine anyone paying for this sub.

  7. I’ve been branching out with different athletic wear brands (I run daily, do yoga and pilates) and have been just buying various brands on during sales. Athleta, Lululemon, Beyond Yoga, Splits59 and YogaSmoga have all been great. I already have lots of Nike. However, everything besides Nike has been pretty pricey (and high quality!) but the price of that polka dot sports bar, good grief! That’s highway robbery! Especially from a brand that cannot even be found. This box is just bizarre. I wonder if people actually subscribe to this box other than bloggers.

  8. Those pink lotus leggings and rebecca michaels sports bra are really super cute. It’s too bad they are so pricey though, i can’t imagine paying that much for leggings and a sports bra.

  9. Pricey. You can find climawear at TJ Maxx, especially those long bras and they’re only like $17 there. I have a couple and unfortunately they pill :c

    Would love to try that Pink Lotus brand.

  10. I have to agree about Fabletics being a better deal, for just around $40 you get 3 or 2 pieces, and get to pick what you want. This may be better for some though, the clothes are nice, but just not for me.

  11. Yikes @ that merchandise total! I’ll just stick with Academy Sports

  12. I agree. I try to leave positive comments, so I’ll say that I think Fabletics is a much better deal.

    • I agree about Fabletics. I think this subscription is for someone who wants to try stuff on at home and have a very easy return process. (And have a stylist pick out pieces). It’s a very specific demographic.

  13. I’m sorry, but I think those prices are extremely high! Who wants to pay that much for clothes that you sweat in?
