10. Glyder Box
Good for: Anyone who likes their activewear with a technical edge.
Why it’s worth it: Glyder’s fitness gear stands out for its stretchy, supportive, breathable fabrics that have been consciously designed with athletic performance in mind. The brand’s Mystery Box gives you a chance to test its technical gear for yourself, sending three pieces of workout clothes (a pair of leggings, a top, and a sports bra) for much less than you’d pay if you bought the items separately. You can make a onetime purchase or set a new box to automatically ship every 60 or 90 days.
Cost: $125 per box.
Good for: The choosy activewear shopper.
Why it’s worth it: After quizzing you on your fitness preferences and goals, HIITBox’s curator specialists assemble a package of gear, goodies, and services from brands like Adidas, Fitbit, and Mirror to suit your individual responses. If the apparel you receive doesn’t fit, you can exchange it for free. The customizability of this subscription ensures that all the items in your box will turn out to be, well, a hit.
Cost: $59 per month, $54 per month for a three-month subscription, or $51 per month for a six-month subscription.
