The box included a sample eating plan and a workout.
There was also some product literature. Now that I look these over, I think the middle paper is the information card.

Skull Crusher High Caffeine Coffee (20 g) – Value $0.77 USD
I passed this off to my husband since I don’t drink coffee. He enjoyed it. I think free coffee helps him put up with my subscription box habit. This appears to be a UK-based brand and the package was one serving.
Defiance Fuel Bottled Water (20 fl oz) – Value $1.30
The website for this product makes all these claims about “water technology” increasing hydration at the cellular level and as someone with a biochemistry PhD, I call BS on all that. (Bottled water is one of the worst product types for bogus scientific claims.) But, it is reasonably priced bottled water and if you like drinking it, I say go for it. Please note that the Defiance Fuel website does not actually tell you how many bottles are in a case so I had to estimate the number based on the image of a case on the product page (I assumed 24).
Bite Fuel Protein Granola Trail Mix in Red Berry (11 oz) – Value $7.99
I’ve had a lot of Bite Fuel granola in the past, but this flavor is new to me. This has 12 grams of protein per serving and includes cranberries and cherries (so lots of antioxidants). This is a nice change of pace for when I get tired of KIND bars (it has 7 grams of sugar per serving). This is soy free and gluten free but does have whey protein so it is not vegan.
Reebok/Les Mills Woven Shorts – Value $40
Every regular BuffBoxx (not the lite version) comes with Reebok apparel. These are too short for me to comfortably model for you but they will be useful for workouts in the summer when my exercise room is blazing hot (the only air circulation I seem to get down there is from the outside because the door is poorly hung). They are woven polyester that is supposed to help wick moisture away from the body. Also, getting this reminded me that I want to subscribe to the Les Mills online workout streaming service.
SKLZ Slidez – Value $29.99
These slide along most surfaces, allowing you to really work your core to maintain stability. They would be useful for the P90X workouts where you are supposed to use a plastic plate (if you’ve done P90X you will know what I’m talking about). Also they seem much higher quality/sturdier than the ValSlides I already have. They came with a booklet listing some exercises to try.
Verdict: I calculated a value of $80.05 for the December BuffBoxx. This is about $30 over the cost of the subscription. I love the two main items for the month and figure the rest is just extra. So far, this is shaping up to be a great subscription (and useful, as I need to rebuild my exercise wardrobe after losing weight this year).
What did you think of the December BuffBoxx? Do you subscribe to any fitness, weight loss, or workout subscriptions?
