Gainz Box is a monthly box of fitness apparel, supplements, equipment, snacks, and more. Gainz Box is a veteran-owned business and donates a portion of their proceeds to charities that support US veterans.
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
This review is of the Gainz for Women, $32 a month, box.
The Subscription Box: Gainz Box
The Cost: $32 + $6 shipping on a month-to-month basis, save with longer subscriptions
The Products: Women or Men’s apparel (in your size), equipment, snacks and supplements, and other fitness items. (Gain[z] Box markets to a CrossFit audience, but I do not think you absolutely have to be into CrossFit to enjoy this box – many of the items are suitable for general fitness enthusiasts!) They promise a $75 value in every box.

The box came with a full-color fold-out information card featuring some of the items from the box in action.
This month’s featured athlete is Camille Leblanc-Bazinet (I love that they feature women so often). There was also some product literature for some of the items in the box And, there was a voucher for a free month of Camille’s Jacked Unicorn or Super Strength Training Program. You do have to enter credit card information even though the $50 voucher covers the cost of the first month. (It seems like you can get the most benefit out of these if you are able to join their private Facebook group and post videos of your workouts to get tips).
Rem-Fit Drawstring Bag and Rem-Fit T-Shirt – Listed Value $30
I’ve listed these two together because these items aren’t available in the Rem-Fit shop and this is how the information card treats them. Rem-Fit as a company seems to deal with getting great sleep while leading an active lifestyle so I’m happy to have found out about them – I need to work on getting better (and more) sleep. I can always use more bags around the house and of course, the t-shirt is great for working out.
Red Bull Sugar-Free (8.4 fl oz) – Value $1.59
Red Bull (8.4 fl oz) – Value $1.59
I think this is the first time I’ve ever received Red Bull of any sort in a subscription box. So far I have tried the ssugar-free one (because of calories) and I don’t know that it stands out much from any other type of energy drink. It doesn’t smell or taste like vitamins, which is nice. And I did have a good workout afterwards. (Note: Supplement Warehouse, the source of the product links above, says this size has been discontinued.)
Xendurance Fuel5 Berry Blend (1 serving) – Value $1.17
This product includes carbohydrate fuels from 5 different sources (sweet potato, lactate, maltodextrin, dextrose, and sucrose). Be aware that this has 99 or 198 calories per serving (depending on whether you take one scoop or two scoops), which is pretty much all sugar. It is stimulant free and has some added B vitamins (it can be good to consume extra B vitamins when you take in a lot of carbohydrates). I’ve been having some tummy trouble this weekend and I don’t deal with sugar well so I’m holding off on this for a bit. This should be good for recovering after a long workout, though!
Water Bottle – Listed Value $15
This is meant for cold drinks only and is BPA free. It has a carabiner clip for attachment to a bag or belt or something. I will use it, although I wish it had a larger opening so you could put ice cubes in it.
Jacked Unicorn CLB Wrist Wraps – Listed Value $15
These are exclusive to the box and I am happy to receive them as I am currently sporting a half-dollar-sized kettlebell bruise on my right wrist. The listed value seems good for wrist wraps and I appreciate that these are tiny to fit my under 5.5-inch wrists. (I am assuming subscribers would’ve received an appropriate size; my shirt was also a small, which was definitely right for me.)
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $64.35 for the November Gainz Box without the free month of training, or $114.35 with the free month of training. It beats the cost of the box + shipping either way, which is good for those of us unable to use the free month of training due to technological limitations. I will definitely use the shirt and wrist wraps right away and I appreciate that everything was vegetarian this month (not always the case with this box, just FYI).
