Raise your hand if you love working out, but find it impossible to get motivated (my hand is raised high, Guys). I totally have to force myself to workout EVERY DAY, but once I do I feel awesome. There are lots of little tricks I use to find that motivation and one of those is a good fitness subscription.

MEET SPARTAN CARTON
This week I got hooked up with my first Spartan Carton Warrior Box, and it was filled with all sorts of things to encourage me to get up off my butt and sweat.
From supplements and snacks to gear and protein, the box was overflowing with everything a person (probably me) needs to stay motivated.
And, I discovered a ton of new products I never even knew existed!
WHATS IN THE BOX?
You know I’ve tried a lot of subscriptions of the years. And, some of them are itty-bitty and kind of sparse when it comes to what’s stuffed inside. Spartan Carton DOES NOT skimp on the goods. This box was not only heavy (weighted squats anyone?), but it was literally overflowing with health and fitness gear curated to make my health and fitness journey the awesomest.
I was stoked to get a few Verb Energy bars. I’ve read about these things everywhere (more caffeine than an espresso, whaaahuuuuut?) and have totally wanted to try them (they do have agave, light brown sugar, and grains, but I’m totally cool with sampling😊).If you see anyone bouncing off the walls later like a ping pong ball, it will be me.
Protein + Supplements
The supplements were probably one of my fave things in the box, mostly because supplements are so expensive and I knew right off the bat 3 full-size supplements alone would have exceeded the cost of the box if I would have purchased it. I received Puritans Pride Omega-3 Fish Oil (one month supply), Odorless Garlic Extract (one month supply) and Melatonin (3 month supply).
I was familiar with Omega 3’s and Melatonin but didn’t know anything about Garlic supplements! Apparently, garlic is a superfood filled with vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals (effective antibacterial, viral and fungal infections). It helps with athletic performance and brain health!
They also sent two Pre-workout sample packs and a full-size Strength and Recovery supplement from House of Gains. I stay away from sugars and certain sugar substitutes, but I feel like pre and post-recovery supplements (or meals) are one of the things most everyday people forget to incorporate into their workout routines. This box definitely has that covered.
Guys, I got a hammock! I don’t know if I have never received anything this cool in a fitness subscription.
I love that they incorporate all the things you need to maximize your health, from the fitness side of things to the healthy side of things to the very important element of recovery: Rest. I’m totally going to see if the hubs will put this in the backyard so I can escape all my grown-up jobs.
They also sent an elastic support brace (for stiff, weak or injured palms), a sweet hat and tee.
The hat is made out of this really cool material and has a super-adjustable strap in the back. The circumference of my head is sort of small (don’t worry, my brain is super large and full of knowledge), so a hat that adjusts down to almost nothing is my jam. This palm support was a bit large for my hand, but it’s a great thing to have in your medicine cabinet just in case you overwork yourself in the gym (or in my case at home because that’s where I work out!).
WHAT’S IT GONNA COST?
The entire value of this box was over $150 bucks. I received the Warrior Box ($99/month), which came with all the extra gear.
The Citizen Box ($25 / month) comes with everything in the Warrior Box except some of the premium items (using this month as an example, it would have excluded the hammock, creatine, hat and fish oil).
