Founder Helena Cawley isn’t new to the exercise scene—she’s a co-owner of Uplift, a boutique, women’s-only studio in New York. After hearing the fashionable, fitness style wants of her clientele, she decided to start her personalized shopping biz. You’ll fill out a questionnaire about your workouts and personal style; the team at SweatStyle cull together packages of fitness gear from brands like HPE, ALALA, Koral and Nux. Every three months, you’ll receive a brand-new box—then have five days to decide what to keep and what to mail back in the prepaid packaging provided.
$20 per delivery (applied towards items you keep) plus price of items kept; mysweatstyle.com.
Start the fitness questionnaire that asks about your workouts, sizes, color preferences and budget. The Wantable team’s style editors will then use that information to handpick five items just for you. You’ll have a few days to try on the gear, and you’re only billed for the items you keep. If you already have enough leggings, let’s say, there’s a place to note what types of apparel you want more or less of—you don’t have to receive full outfits each time. Expect to find really cool pieces from brands including Body Language Sportswear, Lole, Trina Turk and more in your monthly box.
$20 styling fee (applied to items you keep) plus price of items kept; wantable.com.
