Disclosure: I bought this with my own money and I am so glad I did. Whoop Whoop!
Get ready, I am going to gush. I might even giggle. This box is that good. If this box was a song it would be by Bruce Springsteen. That’s right, I am calling it ‘The Boss” of boxes…
Box award for largest subscription box ever. . .
Avenue A by Adidas:
What: Packed with Adidas sporting equipment
Cost: $150 per box
Ok now that I have mentioned “The Boss”
“In the day we sweat it out on the streets of a runaway American dream. . .
Tramps like us, baby we were born to run. . .”
Alright it is summer, let’s sweat it out!
You had me at your insert Avenue A!
Each Avenue A box has a selected curator. For this box, it was Morgan Brian who is a soccer star! Any soccer players in the house? It is my personal favorite sport.
This was the spoiler for this box. Originally after seeing that this was the spoiler for the box, I canceled as I really wanted shoes. However, a representative for Avenue A commented on a recent MSA post that the box would include shoes so click click and I was back signed up. What to do with this tracker? I have resisted these for a long time. And now, this one has something to truly fear called “real time coaching”. I didn’t take this out of the box because I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with it. I thought about swapping it for more skincare stuff (hehehe). I began researching all the features it offers and decided to keep it based on 2 things. One, it is a heart monitor. Two, it is a distance tracker. As a long time fitnessizer (yep, a new word I invented), finding both of those features in the same watch is amazing!
What my “Real-time Coaching” sounds like, “MJ, we see you are turning into Jack in the box. No! No! No! Turn back! Turn Back!”
More “Real-Time Coaching”, “Mj, Mj, put down the wine. . . “
Hello my pretties! Look at these babies!! They are designed for all sports with a sock-like construction.
Here they are up in the club just working on their fitness
They are lightweight with good support. I wore them to CrossFit and the heels are extremely stable for lifting. I wore them without socks and did a 400m run in them with no rubbing. Wonderful!!
Supernova Tank Top:
This is a lightweight mesh. It ran a little more fitted than I expected so I am in the process of exchanging it for a medium (yes! they have exchanges!!!).
My only concern is that it is white. . . should I just dye it grey now?!? I personally don’t separate the laundry and therefore do not own any white clothing. . .
OOo wee baby, these are short even for me! Good thing they are super comfortable. They have the little built in undies but it is a large mesh so I don’t know that I would recommend them for any group exercises unless you want to wear underwear under them. They are definitely for running!
Put these in the category of fast and loose, literally!
These are iconic Adidas! I was ready to write them off as dorky. . . but then I tried them on. Hmm, this mama can deal with the dork factor for comfort. The only reason I call them a little dorky is that they made their appearance in the 90’s when I was a teen-ish and the only people I knew who wore them were dorks because in Hawaii we wear slippers. In my profile I entered 9.5 for my shoes size and they sized these up so they are a little big. I am in the process of trying to return then for a smaller size. Will update.
Cloudfoam for my feet, yes please!
************************Update: Avenue A will exchange my slide for a 9!!*****************
I love a headband!! About 6 months ago, I decided to grow out my bangs so I have quite a collection of headbands. The other headbands accepted this one right into the family!
Side note: bangs are never a good idea
Watch out end of the year box awards, Avenue A is going at the top of the list!! I am going to go on record and say that this is my favorite subscription box of all time. Like in the history of boxes, non even compare. First, I order my box on June 13th. Then, I get my box on June 20th via Fed-ex!! I open my box and a few item don’t work for me. I email customer service and they respond in under 12 hours offering to help me exchange my items!!!! **Update: Exchanges were a breeze! and done within 24 hrs!!* Lastly, I am a little biased as fitness is my first love (aside from Jesus, my babies, surfing, coffee and red wine). Happy dance!!! Anyone out there get this box? Thoughts?!?!
