Buying gifts for your favorite CrossFit friend or family member can be challenging, especially if you aren’t a CrossFitter yourself. If you’re looking for the gift that keeps giving, a monthly subscription box may be just what you’re looking for.
When it comes to the best subscription boxes for CrossFitters, it depends on what you’re looking for. Each subscription service is going to offer a different array of CrossFit goodies each month — everything from gear to healthy snacks to supplements.
Although they can run anywhere from $30 to $75 a month, the boxes are usually packed full of fun fitness surprises.
We’ve broke down some of our favorite subscription boxes for the box-goer in your life.
Best Subscription Boxes…For the Ladies
The Barbella Box is designed specifically for the lady CrossFitters. Wtih samples of everything from yummy raw superfood bars to makeup specifically designed to withhold fierce amounts of sweat, it’s everything a female athlete could hope for.
As if a box for women designed by women wasn’t cool enough, Barbella will often partner with female CrossFit athletes to create boxes. This month, they’re working with CrossFit Games competitor and all around bad ass Lauren Brooks to deliver a box packed with her favorite goodies including Kill Cliff and custom-designed knee sleeves.
This box will run you $49.99 a month and will make the perfect gift for the belle in your life. If you’re interested in learning more about Barbella or participating in some of their awesome competitions (where you might just get the opportunity to win a free box!) follow them on Instagram at @barbellabox.
Best Subscription Boxes…For the Competitor
Have a friend with an itch to compete? The Gainzbox is probably just what they are looking for.
The Gainzbox, which runs about $30 a month, has a little bit of everything. Subscribers can expect supplements, apparel, equipment, snacks and collectible CrossFit items.
Gainzbox gains a lot of cool points because it’s a Veteran-owned company and proudly ships their boxes to bases overseas. They also frequently partner with CrossFitters to bring you tried and true products used by real people in real boxes. Sounds like a winner to us!

Best Subscription Boxes…For the Gainz Junkie
If you know someone who’s ALL ABOUT the protein, then PrtnBox might be just what you’re looking for.
These boxes, which run between $25 and $30 a month depending on the plan you select, are packed full of healthy protein samples to help you get all the gains.
This box is perfect for the foodie being forced to stick to macros or those of us (hello, me!) who love protein but also love getting creative about how to incorporate it into our diets.

Best Subscription Boxes…For the Hardcore
We’re a big fan of Strength Crate. Not only do they ship awesome products — check out those Harbinger bar grips and aminos, score! — but they also include fun stuff in their boxes like new, healthy recipes to try and contests to win more boxes.
They also have the option to subscribe to three different levels of boxes with prices ranging from the very affordable $35 a month all the way up to $75 a month, which includes lots of awesome products like those seen above. They also give users the option to customize their own crates each month with items they’re looking for specifically.
