MizzFit Quarterly Box #MIZ07 Review

*This post may contain affiliate links*
The second I noticed the mailman this morning I ran out looking for my Quarterly MizzFit box! This is the last box I'm expecting this month, but the one I was most looking forward to. So, even though I have a few more reviews to post, I stopped everything this morning to open this one. MizzFit Quarterly box is curated by Bianca Jade. Her fitness philosophy is “Style Up 2 Shape Up.” And she aims to inspire and guide you to radiant style and a strong life. The theme this month is 90/10. This is where you aim to be your best self 90% of the time. I kinda like that idea. This is our first Quarterly MizzFit box and we were super excited for it.
This box was much larger than I was expecting. I had read some spoilers and knew this would be heavier than usual. I was guessing wrist weights would be included once I heard that. The timing of a fitness box is great as swimsuit season will be here in just a few weeks and I'm starting to panic.
This is a pic of the first look. You're getting extra pics today, because not only is this my first MizzFit Quarterly box, but also because it was super fun to go through. The second pic is a letter from Bianca describing why she picked the items she did.
Cap Fitness Ankle/Wrist Weights in color blue - $6.90. Perfect for walking, lower body toning and aerobics. So I guesses right and I am thrilled to see this. I've been trying different things lately with workouts so this will only add to it. I plan to use today when I get around to jumping on the elliptical. I like that you can use on either wrists or feet.
better body foods PB fit Chocolate Peanut Butter Powder 8 oz - $5.39. As a healthy alternative to peanut butter, peanut butter powder helps to keep your food low in calories keeping peanut butter’s fresh, traditional taste. You can use this in shakes and smoothies, baked goods, sauces, confectionary treats, or as a basic spread on sandwiches. AND this has 75% less fat than traditional peanut butter. K loves to make smoothies and shakes. She also loves peanut butter. I'm saving this for her next trip home as she will love this.
Fatty Sundays Gluten Free Chocolate Covered Pretzels Sprinkle- $0.50  I couldn't find a price so I'm estimating. Pretzels, Dark Chocolate & Sprinkles all combined? Awesome! Anyone who reads this blog regularly knows I love my snacks. And it's not often I get the pic before I started eating it, which is why there tends to be pics with bites missing, or even just the packaging. Bianca mentions in her letter she likes to know what's for dessert, so she can workout hard enough to earn it. Reading this is what stopped me from immediately tearing into the bag (I'm basically pretty proud of this). Work hard then get your treat? Hmmm, I hadn't thought of it like that. I'm generally a "Now I need to work this off" kind of girl. I'm willing to try something new today, so I'll wait.
Lumene Bright Now Vitamin C Day Cram SPF 15 - $3.19. I do like this brand. The product is lightweight and a pretty good moisturizer. I love that this one has SPF 15. That is not quite enough for my fair skin during prolonged exposure, but will provide enough protection for normal daily use.
Rumba Time Chelsea Clutch - $20. This was one of the spoilers I actually knew about ahead of time. I know Bianca envisioned this for your gym bag, but I'm heading off to a Cancun resort pool party in a couple weeks, and will totally be using this silicone clutch! I love the bright color and I love that's it's big enough to fit essentials like my camera, hair ties, room keycard, and any other items that tend to get lost in my beach tote.
Tribetats Arm Bands - $7 - This is also going directly into K's coming home bag. She just asked me to get her some last week. I really love the musical notes one. These should last 4-6 days. They can be easily removed with rubbing alcohol or baby oil. This also included a 30% off code for more.
 
Healthy HooHoo Feminine Wipes - $4.79. These are gentle wipes that are fragrance free, paraben free, and glycerin free. Who couldn't use this? This pack included 10 wipes and can easily fit into a gym bag. I like the compact size. Bianca included a 20% off coupon to use as well. I will probably use this coupon since these wipes are fragrance and paraben free.
Clean Energy Patches - $6.66 - Bianca included two patches, so when we try them we would know it is not just a placebo effect. I have never heard of this, so I had to look this up. You apply the patch somewhere, such as arm, chest, abdomen, or hip. You can wear it up to 8 hours. It's designed to provide the positive benefits of caffeine (non-jittery alertness) to give you sustained energy for work, play, sport. You are then supposed to be at peak performance naturally. I plan to try this out maybe on a day this week when I'm feeling too tired to work out but want to get a workout in anyway.
Butt'n Booty Gym Selfie Button - $7 - This is so cute it made me laugh. Bianca had this custom made for her subscribers. It's a cute button that can go on your gym bag. I'll probably add to my yoga mat strap.
New Beauty Magazine - $9.95. I haven't received this magazine in awhile, so it was a nice surprise to see it included. Julia Louis-Dreyfus is on the cover this month. One of the funniest women ever on TV, and she looks so great. Oh my gosh, I just googled her age and now I need to know her secrets.  How does she do it?! Bianca is on page 187 and shares her thoughts on some of her favorite products, one of which was included in this months box.
Crunch Live 45 Day Voucher and Workout Plan from Crunchlive.com - $14.98. Crunch Live is an online fitness portal bringing the best of Crunch’s fitness classes to the web. The cost is $9.99/month. They are known for high quality workouts that are ahead of the curve for fitness trends. I am curious about crunch classes, but there are no crunch gyms in my area. So, it's really nice Bianca included this extended free trial voucher. The flipside of the voucher card has suggested daily workouts, including a built in "day of rest". I love this even if it is unlikely I will get to all of them in six short weeks.
The Quarterly MizzFit box had an overall value of approximately $86.36, which is more than the $55 we paid for it. I always feel inspired every time I read Bianca's blog, but this really gets me in the workout mind frame going through her fitness box. I would love to continue writing more, because I'm seriously thrilled with this box, but I gotta go put those weights to use before my day gets any more away from me!
