The Lift Box is a monthly fitness subscription, containing various supplements, snacks, gear, and apparel. This box was started by veterans in 2017 and has since grown to a community of more than 10,000 fitness enthusiasts. 

I am a fitness enthusiast, and even owned a fitness studio in a past life, so I was very excited to learn about The Lift Box.

This is a review of The Lift Box for $39.95/month.

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 Lift Box July 2021 Review

This box introduced me to a lot of new products that I am very excited to incorporate into my everyday routine. Non-fitness lovers may love the healthy (and delicious) snacks this box introduces you to, while my fellow fitness fans will love the different supplements, products, and nutritious snacks. I’m definitely looking forward to trying this box again in the future!

So, what was in my first The Lift Box, and what did I think? Let’s find out.

Woman lifting weights wearing the lift box tank top.

Lift Box Tank Top – Listed Value $25.00

It’s squat girl summer, and this tank top is helping me rep that branding. I normally work out in just a sports bra but was very excited to put this on post-workout while enjoying my recovery shake. I want to live in this soft material. Every box includes a custom t-shirt or tank top (your choice!), and I’m looking forward to growing this collection.

Woman wearing camo headband

Junk Brands Camo Headband – Retail Value $19.99

I felt myself crank up the intensity of my workout from wearing this headband. The material absorbed my sweat and kept all my stray hairs in place. Plus, it’s machine washable so I wore it a day later with a t-shirt and jeans out with friends. 

The Lift Box shaker bottle

Lift Box Shaker Bottle – Listed Price $12.99

During the pandemic, I got more into making smoothies at home, but honestly, I’ve been a little lazy recently with getting out the blender, making the smoothie, pouring into a glass, and doing the dishes every time. This shaker bottle removes many steps from that routine – I can put in all my ingredients, shake it up, and now I have a smoothie ready to hit the road in this cute bottle. I can bring it to work and then refill it throughout the day with water, making this multipurpose shaker an item I didn’t even know I couldn’t live without.

Banana Steel Whey Protein Powder (x3 servings) – Estimated Value $4.61 (Buy 26 servings for $39.95)

I have never had banana protein powder before (I’m strictly a chocolate or vanilla protein person), but I was pleasantly surprised by this. I mixed it with peanut butter powder and almond milk in my shaker bottle and had a satisfying (and protein-filled) post-workout shake. I think I’ll stick with my chocolate and vanilla in the future, but I’m glad to know this option exists if I want to shake things up. 

Steel Fit supplements

Steel Fit Supplements (x7 servings) – Estimated Value $8.33

Honestly, I’ve only had a pre-workout supplement once before, and I was not a fan. I felt jittery during my workout and like my skin was crawling, so it ended up detracting from the experience versus making it a better workout. So, I was a bit nervous to try the Steel Pump pre-workout formula. However, I’m happy to report I had no jitters or shakiness while exercising, and even got a PR in my Peloton class. Was it the headband? Was it the pre-workout? We’ll never know, but it’s a combination I’ll stick with in the future. 

Shrewd Food protein cookies (oat & chip)

Shrewd Food Protein Cookies (oat & chip) – Estimated Value $2.50 (Buy a 16 pack for $39.95)

In addition to my addiction to exercise, I am also a sugar addict. Ask anyone who sits in my office at work about my snack drawer – you’ll find Teddy Grahams, M&Ms, cookies, etc. When I opened my Lift Box and saw protein cookies, my eyes immediately lit up — healthy cookies?! This is a snack I can get behind. I was not disappointed by the taste either – they have a little crunch from the oats, and sweetness from the chocolate chips. There are about 15 cookies in the bag, and I will tell you that this snack satisfied my sweet tooth and kept me full more than my other usual snacks. I will definitely be stocking the snack drawer with more of these. 

Skinny Dip almonds (x2) (dark chocolate cocoa and dark chocolate peanut butter)

SkinnyDipped Peanut Butter and Dark Chocolate Almonds, 1.2 oz (x2) – Estimated Value $3.74 (Buy 3.2 oz pack for $4.99)

I went on a road trip with a few friends over Memorial Day weekend and became addicted to chocolate almonds (no surprise, given my previously noted love of sugar). I wish we had known about this brand on our trip, rather than buying the giant 1 pound grocery store brand bag. The skinnydipped ones have the benefit of having 7 grams of protein per bag and no artificial sugar or coloring, plus they taste delicious. I have never had an almond with both dark chocolate and peanut butter, but I will definitely be having more in the future. My co-workers can thank me later when these replace my m&ms and dark chocolate cashews.

Mike’s recovery mineral soak

Mike’s Recovery Mineral Soak, 10 oz. – Retail Value $15.95

While I love exercising, I’m not always great at the recovery piece – rest day, stretching, etc. This bath soak may help me on my recovery journey. I loved soaking in the salts after a hard exercise, but think it would be equally soothing on a recovery day with a good book and a glass of wine.

The Verdict: Would I continue subscribing to The Lift Box? Absolutely. I’m very eager to see what new, “healthy” sweet snacks this box can introduce me to in the future, as well as various supplements to improve my performance.

To Wrap Up:

Value Breakdown: The box costs $42.94 ($39.95 + $2.99 shipping) which means that each of the 8 items has an average cost of $5.38. I calculated a value of $93.11, which is more than the promised value of $82.

No to the branding all over everything.!

Adam Lien

Love the name! We have various collabs with apparal companies throughout the year. Our June Lift Box featured apparel from Own The Dash and a shaker from Jocko’s line of supplements. Our private Facebook group, only for subscribers, and our monthly surveys help ensure we’re curating boxes our subscribers want. I appreciate you taking the time to comment and hope to have you as a subscriber and get your feedback!

I’m totally interested in fitness/lifting boxes but why do they have to ruin everything with sub box branding? I don’t want to advertise “the lift box” on my shirt and shaker bottle. Pass for that reason.

Adam Lien

We have other collabs with apparel and shaker companies that we do! Our June Lift box was a Jocko Shaker and Own The Dash shirt. Didn’t have Lift Box 😉 Also our private FB community and surveys each month drive our decision making process for curation 💪🇺🇸

Thanks for the response, Adam! Good to know 👍🏻!

I like the idea of this!

Snow

Where did Andy’s beautiful photos go? I’ll admit, I’m missing seeing pictures. Also, a promised retail value of $82 seems like an odd number to strive for.

Dea

Beefed up with claiming that the headband is $20. LOL.

Hey Dea,

We pull the pricing from the companies website. Feel free to verify on Junk Brands website. We don’t inflate prices. Appreciate the comment.
