Wantable Fitness Subscription Service Review – May 2015 Box

Wantable Fitness is a fitness styling subscription service (similar to Stitch Fix). You fill out an in-depth survey about your fitness clothing preferences, and your stylist picks out items for you.

Wantable Fitness Subscription Service Review – May 2015 Details

Here is my order invoice. The merchandise total is $323 and the keep-all discount is $96.90, so factoring that in plus the $20 credit, this box would cost $206.10 to keep all five items. (Roughly $41.22 an item).

Wantable Fitness Subscription Service Review – May 2015 Info

These are my preferences for the Fitness subscription.

Wantable Fitness Subscription Service Review – May 2015 Hoodie

Rebecca Michaels Turtleneck Pullover – Cost to Keep $98

I love the look of this top. (I love a big cowl neck!) The fabric pattern is beautiful too. It is made with a super soft fabric, and something I would buy if I saw it in a store – though probably not at the $98 price tag. I was also surprised to see that this top is a size large – it looks like this line runs a little small – this would definitely be a medium at Fabletics!

Wantable Fitness Subscription Service Review – May 2015 Tank

Rese Jacqueline Tank in Mermaid – Cost to Keep $68 (The Rese site has this tank on sale for $47)

This tank has a built in shelf bra (not lined), and my favorite part of the design is the support of the thick elastic straps. The black ruffle detail is an interesting subtle touch – you don’t see a lot of ruffles in active wear! My only issue with this top is that it is on sale from Rese Active Wear, so I don’t like that Wantable is charging you full price to keep it.

Wantable Fitness Subscription Service Review – May 2015 Bra

Cory Vines The Lane Racerback Bra – Cost to Keep $30

This sports bra is great. The price point is reasonable, it’s so comfortable and supportive, and I love that the entire bra is lined.

Wantable Fitness Subscription Service Review – May 2015 Capri

Colosseum Elite Flow Capri – Cost to Keep $69

I’ve tried Colosseum workout pants before thanks to Wantable Fitness, and I think they are great if you are looking for a light/medium compression pant with a very lightweight fabric. I also like the pocket detail on the back:

Wantable Fitness Subscription Service Review – May 2015 Zipper

Wantable Fitness Subscription Service Review – May 2015 Zip Up

Mono B Basic Jacket – Cost to Keep $58

This hoodie zip up jacket is made with a very lightweight slinky material. I think it is the perfect weight for a hoodie in Spring. I don’t have anything like it in my workout collection, and I think the price point on this piece is fair.

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 think they’ve been improving upon that issue, but I was still disappointed to see the Rese tank top on sale from Rese’s site.

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.

  1. I’m glad to hear I was not the only one disappointed in Wantable fitness. I pretty much hated the box I got. I feel like it’s very poorly customizable in comparison to things like Stitch Fix. I got one top that was supposed to be a ‘loose’ top and it was so small, I was afraid to really try and get it over my head for fear of tearing the stitching, lol. They did include a pair of capris that I loved, but they were $85 or so! The rest of the pieces were a more reasonable price, but I just didn’t like them. And I had written some specific notes in an attempt to improve customization, and somehow they only got two words of that. Weird. But, yeah, I cancelled right away.

  2. The Rese tank may be on sale on Rese’s website BUT they are out of every size of the Mermaid color but XS. I’m not an XS… So, I don’t think it’s unreasonable for Wantables to charge more than $42 if one can’t buy the size one needs at the $42 price point.

  3. This really doesn’t seem like a deal. I was going to try this if their fitness box was like the others. There really is no reason why they could not have a fitness box like the intimates box. The prices seem very inflated and then there is a “styling fee” on top of it. Fabletics seems much better.

  4. As a fitness apparel blogger, I’m really turned off on this subscription. Not only are the prices really high, most of these brands end up at Marshall’s or TJ Maxx. The designs and colors also look bland.

    This box could have so much potential. There are a lot of great brands that are giving Lululemon and Athleta a run for their money (e.g., Beyond Yoga, Glyder, Hard Tail, Lija, Oiselle, Onzie, Splits59, SweatyBands, YogasSmoga, etc)….instead, they focus on black and basics that look like they would go straight to the bargain store….except they are selling them at full price.

    Maybe they are trying to get maximum profit? I don’t know….I just feel like they could be pulling together some really great brands at the price points they are selling for.

    • I forgot to mention that Corey Vines is the only piece I would have been interested in trying. That designer has been on my radar for quite awhile.

  5. Psyched to see Cory Vines included — they’re a Canadian designer and I have one of their tops which I absolutely LOVE.
