There’s so many different occasions that people need specialized clothing. Work clothes, school clothes, cold weather clothes and dances all come to mind. But often underappreciated are the clothing we use when we exercise. Exercise clothing is often specialized because it needs to perform functionally. People need maximum mobility, and ideally need sweat to be wicked away from the body. This allows people to exercise in comfort and live healthier.
Finding the right exercise and athletic clothing can be a chore. Sizing can be off for athletic clothes, and often designs are just hideous. Subscription boxes offer a way for you to find the clothing that you’re looking to get. What’s better is that most boxes learn from your choices and are able to curate items that specifically fit your needs and hopes. Athletic subscription boxes also provide you with the other things you need to help your gym atmosphere. Many are filled with food, supplements and information to help you with your exercise regime. Another benefit people may not consider is that with additional exercise may come the need to replace exercise clothing into an entirely different size. In short, stay comfortable with stylish and well fitted exercise clothing.
1 - Gymcrate

3 - Fabletics
Fabletics calls their subscription service a VIP service. Fabletics allows you to buy an entire outfit for your workout wardrobe. It costs $49 each month.

If you haven’t made your pick by the 5th of the month, you get charged the $49 dollars, but don’t receive the outfit. This money turns into store credit though.
