I'm Mickie. I run One Strong Southern Girl from Small Town, TN. I love what I do. I want you to remember me because I helped changed your life.
Updated February 2021
I’m going to tell you everything you need to know about one of my favorite (and one of the top) workout clothes subscription boxes–The Wantable Fitness Edit.
Will having a cool outfit motivate you to exercise?
Yes, yes it will.
And let’s face it. Trying on workout clothes at the store really sucks. (There’s just something extra crappy about trying to shove my thighs into a pair of tights in a public dressing room. It’s not pretty.)
I’ve got the solution to this problem.
Join a fitness apparel subscription program and try on everything at home. You’ll quickly freshen up your fitness wardrobe. And I think you’ll be surprised to find out how much having a new pair of tights will make every workout better and something you look forward to.
If you use one of my links to purchase something it helps support my business. Thank you! (No hard feelings if you don’t.) You can get more information about that here.
The Wantable Fitness Edit is a fitness apparel (workout clothing) subscription program.
Here’s how the pros at Wantable describe the program—
“…a personal styling service that allows you to try before you buy. This means you get to try on 5-7 handpicked fitness and athleisure items in the comfort of your own home before paying for them. These items feature the hottest styles and latest innovations…item prices are based on your personal preferences but usually range from $30-$70 each. The Fitness Edit is a monthly subscription, but you can skip a month or cancel at any time. Currently, Edits are only available to customers in the 50 U.S. States. Fitness Edits take about 3-12 business days to ship based on your preferences.”
Five to seven pieces arrive in each shipment.
Other subscription apparel programs I belong to send up to 5 items. I’m always thrilled to see seven in my Wantable box.
The pieces are individualized based on your style preferences so you may get something different than me but I usually get a couple pair of tights, a couple of sports bras, at least one pullover and a couple of other shirts/tanks.
I’ve never received a shipment in which I didn’t keep at least 3 items.
And sadly, I’ve had to send things back I really wanted a few times just because my budget for workout clothes was maxed out at the time.
The program is monthly but you can skip a month if you notify Wantable before your shipment goes out.
If you want to skip a month you can email customer service or use the ‘Skip’ option (keep reading for directions about how to do that) on your account Dashboard at least 5 days before your shipment goes out.
It took me a while to figure out how to skip a month.
Here’s how you do it:
To skip a month (and avoid the style fee for that month) you go to the Wantable home page >> click on ‘Plans’ in the top menu
Now you’ll find yourself on the Plan Manager dashboard.
Scroll down to the Fitness edit box and click on ‘Skip next order’ and Voila! You’ve now skipped the next shipment.
Update: The prompt to skip the month now says ‘pause’. So, click on that and your deliveries will be on hold until you ‘unpause’ them.
TIP– If you keep scrolling down the Plan Manager page you’ll find where you can sign up for Wantable’s other subscription box program for everyday wear (called Style).
Update-Wantable has phased out their Makeup, Intimate and Accessories programs but Wantable Style* is awesome!
*Wantable Style is a monthly subscription box program for everyday wear (like Stitch Fix).
You’ll be charged $20 a month (a styling fee) that will be applied towards the purchase of the items in your shipment that you choose to keep.
Shipping and returns are free (use the bag with the return label that comes with your shipment).
The price of items in each shipment range from about $30-$70. Here’s a sample of one of my invoices so you can see for yourself what to expect.
From the Wantable home page use the Fitness button to start the sign up process.
Now you’ll take the quiz to start the sign up process…
Next you’ll be prompted to provide contact information to create an account…
Then you’ll answer several questions to create a style profile based on your unique life and preferences…first you’ll provide your sizes…
Then you’ll need to give information about your budget…
Next you tell Wantable what you’re looking for in fitness fashion…
Now you’ll answer questions about your style preferences…
And the exercises you like to do…
The last step to set up your Wantable Fitness Edit account is to provide your shipping and billing information…
You can cancel anytime.
You won’t want to, though.
Here’s how you cancel…use the ‘Plan’ tab in the main menu to go to your Plan Manager dashboard:
Then click on the box indicating how often you’re getting a shipment…
And the next page will show you where you can change your order frequency and/or cancel your subscription altogether.
You’ll want to update your style preferences and/or send a note to your stylist occasionally.
Here’s how you do both.
Use the ‘Plan’ tab in the main menu to get to your Plan Manager dashboard. Then find the box with your Fitness subscription and click on ‘Update Quiz’ and you’ll find yourself back in the style quiz.
To send a note to your stylist you’ll use your Plan Manager dashboard again. This time you’ll click on the ‘edit notes’ phrase.
And you’ll find a box to enter a personal note to your stylist about your next round of workout apparel.
To edit your shipping and/or billing demographic information you’ll use the ‘Account’ tab on the main menu.
The Account tab will take you to a screen to update your email as well as your billing and shipping information.
Wantable is awesome!
I belong to several fitness apparel subscription programs (possibly all of them) and I promise that you’ll be happy with Wantable’s Fitness Edit.
After you create an account with Wantable you’ll have access to your personal Wantable Dashboard.
The Wantable site is easy to navigate so you’ll never get frustrated when you need to change your credit card, shipping address, style preferences or change the frequency of your shipments.
Wantable’s style profile has the most detailed breakdown of sizing (height, weight, hoodie size, sports bra, top, bra cup size, panty size, bottoms, inseams, and shoe size) and is the most complete in general (compared to the other style profiles I completed for my other fitness apparel subscriptions).
There’s also a place to send a note to your stylist. Use it. They will listen. (Scroll up the page for screen shots showing you exactly how to do that.)
Wantable’s Fitness Edit includes brands and styles that you (probably) won’t have in your closet.
I’ve been an avid fitness enthusiast for over 20 years. I thought I’d seen every cut, color, material and print there was. Guess what? I haven’t.
The Wantable Fitness Edit has unique pieces with cool prints, comfortable and practical* fabrics and beautiful colors.
*Full disclosure-In one shipment I did receive a pair of tights that required hand washing. Do people actually hand wash their fitness garments after working out? If you do then you’re amazing (and don’t sweat the way I do). My stuff needs industrial washing with a machine and lots of detergent after I’m done with a workout. Handwashing isn’t an option for my workout gear.
This may seem trivial but compared to other companies I can appreciate a nice invoice/packing slip.
How many times have you scanned a packing slip to find the cost of each item in a shipment and become a little frustrated at the amount of time it takes to match each description on the invoice with the item you’re looking for?
Wantable’s invoice has pictures! Thank you! I love that. Genius. (To be fair, Stitch Fix does this, too.
But none of the other fitness apparel subscription programs I belong to do.) This is a small thing that matters, people.
You’ll know exactly what’s going on with every order. I love that I get an email every step of the way. Here’s an example of the emails you’ll receive for each Fitness edit.
I know that’s a lot of emails but you’ll appreciate the notices. It’s easy to miss a deadline if you’re not reminded.
And if you need to communicate with Wantable from your end (maybe you have a question about an order) then you’ll be happy to know that in my experience you’ll get a professional, clear response within 24 hours.
It’s worth noting that Wantable also has an everyday wear subscription program (Wantable Style), similar to Stitch Fix.
I love Stitch Fix but haven’t tried Wantable’s version so I can’t give an opinion about it. But based on how good Wantable’s fitness apparel program is I feel good recommending this program as well.
Update–I signed up for the Wantable Style Edit. It’s just as fabulous as the Fitness Edit. Go for it.
Update #2-Wantable does exchanges now! So awesome! (And another reason to look into Wantable!)
