Shopping in person can be tricky these days, since an essential aspect of social distancing is avoiding large crowds. But you don’t even have to leave your home to enjoy all the latest fitness and workout gear, thanks to subscription boxes.
Fitness subscription boxes are so popular that there’s probably one geared toward your favorite type of workout. There are boxes made for outdoorsy adventurers, filled with gear to elevate your next hiking trip, and boxes for those who have turned their spare room into a yoga studio during quarantine.
Ahead, shop the best fitness subscription boxes tailored to every type of workout.
Barbella box arrives monthly and includes a little bit of everything. Curators (who, importantly, are all female) search for the best supplements, snacks, gear, and apparel—then send 5-7 items to your doorstep each month.
The YogaClub subscription takes personalization to a new level by having you take a “style quiz” before you sign up, so that curators know exactly what you love wearing to a yoga class. You'll receive an entire outfit in each box, at least 50% off the retail price—so a total steal. Plus, the company features name brands, including Free People, Beyond Yoga, and Manduka.
If you’re looking to spend more time outdoors this year, this subscription will likely come in handy, since it sends you products you didn’t know you needed, such as a portable water filter, starter hammock, and pain relief patches to put on after a long, active day.

The Ellie subscription box is perfect for someone looking for activewear suitable for all kinds of different workouts—or just some cute athleisure to wear to the grocery store.

Other perks: You can skip a month, and if you don’t like an item that came in your last box, the company will replace it at no extra charge.

Dia & Co was founded to fill a void in the market after CEO Nadia Boujarwah noticed it was difficult to find clothes for women sizes 12 to 22.

The price of each box depends on the contents, and you can return what you don’t want. But, if you keep all five items in the box, you get 25% off the price of the total order.
You already know that mental health is a huge part of your wellbeing, but it can also seriously deter your fitness plan. (What’s the point of having goals if you’re too anxious to act on them?)
