Workout gear, either because it’s put through the ringer so often or because it is definitively dirty after one use — seems to be one thing I never have enough of in my closet.
Not to mention the fact that materials are getting smarter and better at a rate that would require a lot of energy — or trips to the mall — to keep up with and assess on my own.
I know the stores I trust and the number I’m willing to spend, but sometimes it would be great to just outsource the whole thing to someone who knew the industry and gear best.
Unless Under Armour made their new no-fee subscription service ArmourBox just for me, a lot more people feel that way, too.
The new program doesn’t veer drastically from most subscription services you’re likely familiar with already. One difference worth mentioning, though, is that there’s no fee. You sign up for free, get a box every 30, 60, or 90 days (whichever you want) filled with things an expert picked out for you, and then you’ve got a week to try on everything. Keep what you want, return what you don’t. You’ll only be charged for what you keep.
And if you decide to keep it all, you’ll get 20% off.
Let the experts read through your goals, needs, sizes, and style and pick the best materials and designs for the task at hand, so you can spend more time doing what you love, in the very best gear for the job.
To get started, all you have to do is click male or female and you’ll be prompted by these visual cues (I clicked female):
First, you’ll be asked to divulge your fitness goals.
This will help your Official Outfitter pick new gear that best helps you achieve your goals. Paired with a native, reliable knowledge of their gear, materials, and benefits, they can better suit your needs. Select as many as apply.
As well as where you’re normally found wearing fitness gear.
If you’re looking for more comfort and flexibility while weight training, you’re going to need something different than you would if you want to improve your hiking. If you like to do all four, feel free to check them all.
You’ll also be asked what sort of activities get you active.
Knowing what you plan on using it for helps your stylist pick out gear that will make for a better performance and experience. Select as many activities as you want.
