WODBOM Fitness Subscription Box Review + Coupon – July 2016
WODBOM stands for “Workout of the Day – Box of the Month” and is a subscription box designed for CrossFit enthusiasts, by CrossFit enthusiasts. (Although, I don’t think you absolutely have to be into CrossFit to get something out of this box, as long as you are interested in working out!)
This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

The box included a card with a bit more information about the items in the box. This month’s card features CrossFit athlete Emily Abbott. I love that they are featuring a female athlete. And I really hope to have abs like hers one day…
There was also some product literature for some of the items in the box.
50 Strong Tank from Jekyllhyde Apparel – Value $27.99
I work out in my basement and it is kind of warm down there right now. So tanks are appreciated. I almost have enough for a full week without laundry now!
Mobility Band from Edge Mobility – Value $14
I have a lot of fitness bands, but none quite like this. These are designed for stretching and mobility exercises but I think it would be quite good for some resistance training work, as well. Note this is natural latex so watch out if you have a latex allergy (it came wrapped separately in a plastic bag so you wouldn’t have had an issue just opening the box this month).
Eudracool Towel from Mission – Value $17.99
I have seen a lot of cooling towels in subscription boxes lately, but this is my first one. I pretty much only work out in the air conditioning so I may pass this on to my sister, who is a personal trainer in New York (she does a lot of outdoor classes).
Voke Natural Energy Tablets – Value $7
I’ve gotten these before from Yogi Surprise. These have lots of plant extracts, including 100% of your daily vitamin C and caffeine. They don’t have any artificial colors or preservatives, either. I can’t tell a big difference from these, but I kind of consume a lot of caffeine on a daily basis. I’ll keep these at work for an afternoon pick-me-up, I think.
Energy Bites from Pure Bliss Organics – Value $4.99
These were more “cranberry” than “lemon,” but I actually liked them fairly well. They’re vegan and one thing I love about snacks like this is that you can really control your serving size. It’s not like a bar, where you have to eat the whole thing or figure out how to re-wrap the remainder. You can just eat what you want and seal the bag back up for later. Although dates are second in the ingredients list, these don’t taste like a date bar, which is nice for a change.
Protein Cookies from Bite Fuel – Value $3.49
I’ve had these before from PrettyFit. They are decent for packaged cookies (especially cookies with added protein) – very soft, which is great, but a little dry. These would be good for dunking in coffee or Crio Bru. Although the bag says it contains 18 grams of protein, please note that the bag contains 3 servings (of 2 cookies each), so please keep in mind that each cookie has only 3 grams of protein.
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $75.46 for the July WODBOM. That is more than double the cost of the box, which is excellent for a fitness subscription. Although the value is a little lower than previous months, the snacks were vegetarian this time, so I could use everything myself! Although this box is marketed towards CrossFit enthusiasts, I think it is good for fitness enthusiasts in general. Also, one thing I appreciate about this box is that I am learning about some brands for athletic wear and gear that I would not have been exposed to before – I really think the curation is great. Plus, I think this box can work for both men and women (some fitness boxes lean strongly one way or the other).
What did you think of the July 2016 WODBOM? Do you get any fitness subscriptions?
