July 2, 2020
Flip flops are out, the sunscreen is on and Summer is here! Although it will be different to the norm, The RunnerBox and RiderBox team are here to help you make the most of those long hot sunny days with their latest June-July boxes. Released on June 1st, the Summer Edition is packed with goodies that have been tried and tested by an elite team of athletes to help you get your mojo back and sweat it out this summer.
Races may have been postponed or cancelled, but don’t let that slow your training. “Now is a great time to try new products and figure out what works for you,” said The RunnerBox COO, Courteney Lowe. “The Summer-Edition RunnerBox and RiderBox is that extra bit of motivation that will keep your spirits high and outlook bright with goodies that will fuel your training, quench your thirst and keep you cool this Summer.”
With heat training shown to be more beneficial to performance than altitude training (reference: https://www.outsideonline.com/2098556/surprising-benefits-training-heat), these latest boxes are designed to keep you cool, comfortable and maximizing gains all summer long. Boxes start as low as $25 and boast a retail value of up to $72. What’s inside? Here’s a sneak peak of this edition’s featured products:
Bob’s Red Mill – Peanut Butter & Jelly Oats Bar provide subscribers the mouth-watering taste of a PB&J but with simple, convenient nourishment. These bars are loaded with protein, so are best consumed within the first 45 minutes of a low-intensity training session or during the warm-down of a high intensity workout.
SaltStick Fast Chews – Lemon-Lime closely resemble the electrolyte profile lost in sweat. During these hot Summer days subscribers should take 2 tablets every 30 minutes during exercise to reduce muscle cramping and heat stress, boost stamina, and maintain electrolyte levels (i.e. go longer, faster).
YumButter – Keto Nut Butter is a convenient on-the-go source of healthy plant-based fat and protein in a re-sealable pouch. YumButter is best consumed during long, slow endurance training for slow energy release. Our suggestion? 1/3 of the pouch every 45 minutes.
Kibo – Chickpea Chips provide subscribers with a flavorful, low calorie, high protein snack made from chickpeas that will keep you going when you need something to tie you over between meals.
Growing Naturals – Pea Protein will keep subscribers recovered with their plant-based protein powder featuring a full spectrum of amino acids and a healthy dose of iron. Mix entire pouch with around 22 ounces of water and consume directly after training to rebuild muscles and prepare you for the next day.
Real Made – Overnight Oats (also known as ‘Maker Oats’) are an easy, delicious, nutritious and portable breakfast option for those busy mornings. Simply add your favorite milk and soak overnight for a quick grab-and-go breakfast (preferably 1-2 hours before exercise).
Clif Bar – Coffee Collection will have subscribers zinging with a tasty blend of protein, fat and carbohydrates in a super-charged energy bar made with organic coffee beans and loaded with 65mg of caffeine. Our suggestion? Consume 1/3 every 45 minutes during intense training and racing days.
Acorn Bar provide subscribers with a mouth-watering snack that you will go NUTS over. Acorn Bar contains ‘just the good stuff’ – no fillers or preservatives and is best consumed straight after training either by itself or crumbled over high-protein yogurt for a tasty, carbo-loaded boost in recovery.
Qula – Kombucha Tabs transforms water into refreshing Kombucha, packed with naturally fermented teas, probiotics, and hydration boosting minerals (plus, it’s low in sugar). Qula tabs are perfect as a tasty, probiotic, thirst-quencher during these warm Summer days.
Elete – Electrolyte Pocket Bottle is one of the only hydration products to contain four essential electrolytes; magnesium, potassium, sodium and chloride. We add 6 drops per drink bottle for long endurance rides or 3 drops for in-between training when it’s hot and we need convenient hydration.
RB – Popsocket is a RunnerBox and RiderBox exclusive that sticks to the back of your phone and pops out for better grip and phone security.
HydraPak provide RunnerBox subscribers with a lightweight, collapsible soft cup or bottle designed to make hydration easily accessible.
Bandz –RB Headband will keep sweat and hair out of our runners faces during these hot and humid Summer days to ensure you’re getting the most out of your workout.
Chamois Butt’r – Coconut Anti-Chafe Cream is saving our RiderBox subscribers butts this Summer with their organic chamois cream. Apply directly on chamois before your ride to moisturize and reduce friction for those more sensitive areas.
Snappy Towels provide riders a super-absorbent, lightweight and fast-drying towel with snaps so it can stay in place (and also perfect as a changing skirt). Dunk your snappy towel in some ice water and wrap around your neck after a hot training day for instant cooling.
