This review is of the G.O.A.T. Box.
This is the letter that was enclosed in my box, detailing all the contents.
On the reverse side is a recipe for Tuscan Salad. It looks good but I can't eat asparagus. Oh well, you can't win 'em all! There is also information about how to win a free 25 lb. BruteForce Sand Bag! Nice!
Strength Crate Tank Top - Value $20
(This particular one is not for sale on their site, but a similar one is.)
This tank is cute and comfy, and I have a feeling it's going to get a lot of use in a couple of months when it gets HOT down here in Georgia!
Harbinger Big Grips Bar Grips - Value $24.99
Did you know that using a thicker bar when lifting weights activates more muscles? I did not. Apparently, these have been used for decades to produce noticeable results in less time. Cool!
BCAA Powder by Eat the Bear - Value $45.99
This powder is all about muscular recovery after a hard workout. It's a blend of amino acids that promotes protein synthesis. Repairing muscular damage is, of course, what builds muscles!
Smoothie / Drink shaker - Value $10?
This was not for sale online at Strength Crate's shop, but I saw a very similar one at GNC for this price. I needed a blender bottle! Score! The little cup could hold protein (or other) powder and fits right in the lid.
Black Widow Spider Chalk - Value $14.95
Wow, I really wish I had this back when I used to climb rocks. This is 99% pure magnesium carbonate liquid chalk, ideal for climbing and lifting. It provides friction and stays put during your workouts!
Verdict: Strength Crate is awesome! It's very serious! I wish I had been a subscriber back when I used to do Crossfit; this would have been perfect. I think most of it is still really useful, though, for us regular gym rats. This is one of the few fitness boxes I've seen that wasn't mainly samples of supplements, and I am so glad! The value of this month's included items totals about $125, which is amazing for an $86 box! I think if you work out regularly, Strength Crate will help you see results faster, especially for people who work out hard!
