Gainz Box Subscription Review + Coupon – June 2017
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 U.S. 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.
Ships to: U.S.

The box came with a full-color fold-out information card featuring some of the items from the box in action. I think the posing is often kind of cheesy but I also think it shows people who have a sense of humor and a fun attitude. This month features Jackie Perez.
There was also some product literature. Note: You’ll see a Rebellia Clothing card here. The information booklet says it is for $25 but the card itself says it is for $20. At any rate, I couldn’t find anything beneath $39 on the site so you’d have to shell out some of your own money as well. Thus, I have not included this as part of the overall value of the box.
Caffeine and Kilos Tank – Value $25?
I couldn’t find this exact tank design on the Caffeine and Kilos site, but it is very similar in style to this one, so that’s the value I’ve used. This one is lightweight but a little bit loose on me (although they are available in XS, that is not a size Gainz Box offers to subscribers). Still, it will be good for cardio workouts with a good sports bra underneath, so I can’t complain.
Virus Crew Socks in Royal Blue/White – Value $15?
Here is another item that is not available in the Virus shop, so I’ve taken the value from the one pair of socks I could find there. I have another pair of Virus socks from a previous Gainz Box, and I can tell you that they fit pretty well and hold up to repeated washings. They are fairly heavy, as socks go, so they are more of a winter item for me.
Fitspi Heavy Loop Band – Value $5?
Fitspi Extra Heavy Loop Band – Value $5?
I can’t find these on the Fitspi site (they seem to just have apparel) so I’ve taken the value from similar items on Amazon. These are really good for putting around the ankles, calves, or even upper thighs and doing squats or side steps. It’s a way to get in some resistance training for areas that are hard to work otherwise.
Lyft-Rx Premium Flex Adhesive Tape (1.5 in x 5 yards) – Value $6.33 (buy a 3 pack for $18.98)
This tape is latex free. You can wrap fingers with this and the texture is supposed to give you a better grip. I have tried this product before and it does help me hold on to kettlebells when my hands start to get sweaty, so this will get used up pretty quickly.
Fitaid Sunglasses – Value $4.99
These are basically just promotional sunglasses, though they are for sale on the Fitaid site so I’ve listed a price. I am giving these to my husband. He has this habit of breaking and/or losing sunglasses and he will need them sooner or later.
Travelaid (12 fl oz) – Value $2.49 (buy a case of 24 for $59.76)
This is supposed to be immunity boosting and is free of caffeine. It has some vitamins and relaxing herbs (chamomile and lemon balm, nothing too out there) as well as ginger and turmeric, which are anti-inflammatory. I am not sure what I think of the flavor (this reminds me more of something I would drink hot, like an herbal tea) and there is more sugar than I would like (9 grams per can) but I do appreciate getting to try a new product as opposed to one of the FitAid products I’ve tried before.
Quest Bar in Mocha Chocolate Chip (2.12 oz) – Value $2.08 (buy a box of 12 for $24.99)
This is one of the new flavors of Quest Bar (along with Blueberry Muffin and Oatmeal Chocolate Chip, both of which I have tried and like). Lots and lots of Quest Bars get consumed at my house; they are low in sugar and vegetarian and do have a nice balance of protein, fat, and fiber. This is not my favorite flavor because it tastes and smells like coffee, though my husband likes it. Your mileage will vary depending on whether or not you like coffee, I expect.
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $66 for the June Gainz Box. That’s a good value for this box, especially considering that the $66 does not include the value of the Rebellia coupon/gift card. I thought the mix of items was pretty good – I got to try a new flavor of Quest Bar, will definitely use the socks, and those resistance loop bands need to be replaced every so often for safety reasons and now I will not have to buy more. I don’t think you have to be into CrossFit to get something out of Gainz Box, either – it could be a good choice for anyone who works out and does at least some resistance training.
