Fitness Junkies

10 Oct

 I know not everyone who stumbles upon my page is a gym rat- but I kind of am.  I ordered “Jackedpack” because I try to eat clean.. but never really am protein conscious; besides making sure the meal I get in my system after lifting contains beans or grilled chicken or even a bar if I’m desperate to make that half an hour time cutoff.  But never like a shake.  I worked at a gym when I was much younger and part of my job was to make them.. they were gross and I’ve been turned off every since.

I didn’t really think this box would be a big hit with me, but my boyfriend is kind of in meat-head discovery mode so as always I’m optimistic that I’ll find some stocking stuffers!  I find Christmas stockings so fun! LOL.

I used the promo code CUSTOMDEAL to save 50% and even though I picked the smallest package- the lightweight (normally $14.99- less if you opt for a longer subscription)- I was a little taken aback at how small it was, even my Bulu box was bigger than my hand and that thing was useless..

The description for the Lightweight box includes:

  • 6-8 different supplement
  • Perfect for those looking to discover new products without dropping much $
  • Includes $10 coupon to e-store
  • Non-customizable

That last bit is important.  If I had any idea what I was doing I probably would want to upgrade just so I could choose my samples.  I guess I get a little spoiled with some subscription box sample sizes- I’m such a junkie and have done so much research I manage to find ones that offer deluxe size or even full size products! 

However it turns out this little box packed a lot of awesome (too corny?) The info card that came in it was adorable and witty.

Anyway here is what i got:

-Protein & oats (cocoa flavor) by MET-Rx; 1 serving

-Delicious Protein (chocolate) by Giant Sports; 1 serving

-OhYeah! Bars (peanut butter crunch and chocolate&caramel) by ISS Research; 2 (trial size?) bars



-ALARM by Image Sport; 1 serving

-Speed Stack Pumped N.O. Powder (blue raspberry) by ABB; 1 Serving

C4 Extreme by Cellucor; 2 servings


DILATE by ANS Performance; 4 capsules

All and all I think this is a GREAT way to experiment.  Jackedpack does an awesome job…


More news on the healthy subscription box front, I’ve been considering trying Hello Fresh, I even found a great Promo- ADDICTIONHELLO- which gives you $25 off the $69 or $59 weekly box. That’s not bad for 3 3 course meals AND  It saves me a trip to the grocery store AND introduces me to delicious new meals! The problem is- I already have a lot of the ingredients.  And next week is featuring  bolognese sauce?  Give me a break.. I’m Italian.. I’ve been making that stuff since I could slice garlic. 

The vegetarian option, however, does look super awesome! But again, I have easy access to a lot of those ingredients as well.  Unlike most meal subscription boxes, this one doesn’t let you customize… yet.  I hear it’s in the works.

Blame it on marketing, but for some reason this is the only meal service box I’m considering (even though Plated has a 20% promo code out for first time newsletter subscribers.)  What are your thoughts?
