We Rate The Best Subscription Boxes: Fitness


+ Snag you exclusive discounts

Last week, we detailed the best accessory-themed subscription boxes on the market (s/o to our favorite, Rocksbox!). This week, we're delving into another category: fitness. Like their clothing counterparts, there's a bevy of options on the market for every type of athletic wear. From those of you crushing it with HIIT routines or yoga, and yeah, those of you who just love a good sweatshirt and pair of leggings to watch movies in (um, we might be in that last category), we got you covered.

No matter what your level of fitness is, there's a box out there ready to add to your arsenal of cute kicks, sports bras, hoodies, and more. We even tested out a box of mindful products to nourish both the body and soul, because fitness doesn't just end at the gym. Read on to see how each box stands up, and grab yourself one in the process. We even got you exclusive discount codes so you can reward yourself for your hard workout efforts not with junk food, but with more chic options to inspire and motivate. A daily dose of #Fitspo, below.

Our Favorite: FYTSO


Cost: Free, only pay for the items you want to keep.

The dirt: One thing we enjoyed about FYTSO is that there's NO stylist fee, making it a unicorn in the world of apparel subscription boxes. Once you create an account, fill out a profile that includes usual details like height, weight, and the types of exercise you normally engage in. They also ask what colors and prints you love, and which they should stay far away from, and have you rate sample outfits. We also liked that they gave the option of uploading a pic of yourself, so the stylists can physically see your body type and the type of clothing you would normally wear.

From there, they pick pieces and before sending them out, email you an overview. Our stylist didn't quite get things right on the first go-around, but after sending feedback asking for edgier items, we were stunned with the revised selects. Having control and a direct conversation with a stylist makes all the difference, and we loved everything sent to us... a little too much perhaps. R.I.P. already to the mesh-paneled Reverie leggings we received—they fell victim to a week of partying in Miami (but in the process, we got so many compliments!).

Cara Delevingne, Ashley Benson, and Agyness Deyn also star

Elisabeth Moss is trying to keep it together as punk rock artist Becky Something in the trailer for forthcoming movie Her Smell. She's surrounded by iconic faces who make up her band Something She, Gayle Rankin as Ali van der Wolff and Agyness Deyn as Marielle Hell, as she grapples with the fact that her musical prowess just doesn't draw as big a crowd as it used to.

In addition to the wavering fame, Becky is "grappling with motherhood, exhausted bandmates, nervous record company executives, and a new generation of rising talent eager to usurp her stardom," according to a press release. "When Becky's chaos and excesses derail a recording session and national tour, she finds herself shunned, isolated and alone. Forced to get sober, temper her demons, and reckon with the past, she retreats from the spotlight and tries to recapture the creative inspiration that led her band to success." And what's clear from the trailer, Moss is absolutely meant for this role, transforming into the punk on the brink of collapse.

Rounding out the cast are Ashley Benson, Cara Delevingne, and Dan Stevens. Watch the official trailer, below. Her Smell hits theaters on April 12 in New York and 14 in L.A., with "national expansion to follow."

In an acceptance speech at the BRIT Awards

As The 1975 accepted the BRIT Award for Best British group, outspoken frontman Matty Healy shared the words of journalist Laura Snapes as a way of calling out misogyny that remains ever-present in the music industry. Healy lifted a powerful quote from Snapes' coverage of allegations against Ryan Adams for The Guardian: "Male misogynist acts are examined for nuance and defended as traits of 'difficult' artists, [while] women and those who call them out are treated as hysterics who don't understand art."

Snapes reacted almost immediately on Twitter, saying she was "gobsmacked, and honoured that he'd use his platform to make this statement." Snapes had originally written the line for an interview she published with Sun Kil Moon singer Mark Kozelek back in 2015, in response to Kozelek publicly calling her a "bitch" who "totally wants to have my babies" because she requested to speak in person rather than via e-mail, which she brought up in the more recent piece on Adams. Kozelek's vile response, and the misogyny that allowed it to play out without real consequences, it could be argued, could have easily played out in the same way in 2019, which makes her reiteration of the line, and Healy's quoting it on such a large platform, all the more important.

It should be noted that back in December, Healy caught a bit of heat himself on Twitter for an interview with The Fader in which he insinuated that misogyny was an issue exclusive to hip-hop, and that rock 'n' roll had freed itself of it. He clarified at length on Twitter and apologized, saying, "I kinda forget that I'm not very educated on feminism and misogyny and I cant just 'figure stuff out' in public and end up trivializing the complexities of such enormous, experienced issues."
