More companies are helping you hit the easy button these days. Runners, cyclists, triathletes and others can get the latest in nutrition bars, energy gels and healthy snacks shipped to home.
KY3's Paul Adler visits with Pamela Hernandez of Thrive Personal Fitness about the ship to home boxes geared toward active people.
Here's what Pamela told us:
I've never met a runner who didn't like new gear. If you want a great way to try new stuff to help you run farther, faster and maybe even safer, a running subscription box is a great way to do it.
Here are two great options to help you experiment with new ways to upgrade your training.
If you like to be the first in your group to try new things, RunnerBox is the option for you. RunnerBox is a bimonthly subscription box with the motto "leave the research to us." You'll find brands and products you may not have heard of before that might give your training just the boost it needs. They will curate what's new and send it to you every other month for only $20 a box (plus $6,95 shipping and handling). They also offer a CycleBox for cyclists and a TriBox for triathletes.

If you want new items from brands you love plus extra help finding your motivation then the monthly StrideBox is for you. Not only will you get gels, bars and stickers for your running log, you'll also get encouragement to find your purpose. For example, you could start training for their next Virtual Marathon to support Warfighter Sports, a charity that supports wounded warriors and their families. You can sign up to get this box each month for $15 (which includes the S&H). Click here to go to StrideBox.
