What Happened to Jacked-In-A-Box?
For anyone (like myself) who is a current subscriber to Muscle & Fitness’s Jacked-In-A-Box program, you may be disappointed to find out that the program is being discontinued. I never received an email or note in recent boxes about this. I randomly found what I hoped was a rumor about it, mentioned in a comment left on someone’s Instagram post.
After emailing the company to see if it was true or if it was someone was just trying to poach subscribers away from Jacked-In-A-Box, I received what I can only assume was a very heartfelt, detailed, and obviously professional response from someone at Muscle & Fitness:
Yes. The program has been discontinued. December is the last box.
There we have it. So long and don’t let the door hit you on the ass on the way out.
I looked around for an alternate program because, personally, I really looked forward to the monthly supplement boxes. Some samples were hit-and-miss with either the quality or effectiveness, but every month I had something new to try and it added another level of enjoyment to my 5am workouts.
There’s another, very similar monthly fitness supplement box subscription program called Jacked Pack. What impressed me right off the bat is that Jacked Pack seems to have put a lot more thought into what their subscribers might want.
Designed With Your Goals In Mind
Jacked-In-A-Box had very few categories that you could choose from to let their team create boxes which were, in theory, tailored to your goals. Jacked Pack gives you four options:
- Get Jacked (Build Muscle) – You want to build lean muscle mass, increase strength, and fill out your shirts a bit more.
- Get Fit (General Badass) – You workout already and want to improve your results in the gym/look good naked.
- Get Ripped (Burn Fat) – You are targeting fat-loss while maintaining muscle to bring that 6 pack to the front of the fridge.
- Get Started (Build a Base) – You need a basic kit to help you get (re)started with supplements and maximize your progress in the gym.
Jacked Pack is not a one-size-fits-all subscription. Once you choose your overall goal, you have a choice of three different sizes of Jacked Pack monthly boxes, based upon your supplement usage and your eagerness to try new products:
This kit gives you 6-8 different supplement samples — perfect for people looking to discover new products without dropping a lot of money. Subscribers also receive a $10 welcome coupon, in addition to a $10 monthly coupon to spend in their online store.
You’ll receive 1 trial size item (aprox. 7-20 servings) and 6-8 different supplement samples. This kit is geared toward subscribers who want more product and more control over what goes into their Jacked Packs. Subscribers will also receive a $15 welcome coupon and a $10 monthly coupon to spend in their online store.
The Heavyweight XXL
This kit is serious business for the serious gym rats! You’ll receive one full-size item (typically 25-40 servings), plus the usual 6-8 different supplement samples. Heavyweight XXL subscribers will receive a $20 welcome coupon along with the usual $10 monthly coupon to spend in their online store.
What Will It Cost You?
They also have flexible subscription plans. The monthly price of each box varies based upon the subscription plan you choose — monthly, bi-annual (every 6 months), or annual (every 12 months).
One program feature that I noticed Jacked Pack offers, which I was really hoping Jacked-In-A-Box would implement, is gift subscriptions. With the holidays coming up, birthdays, or even Father’s or Mother’s Day, you can ask for gift subscriptions for Jacked Pack to keep the gains train going without you having to pay for it!
But Is It Worth It?
Good question! I have not yet received my first Jacked Pack box, but take a look at what actual subscribers are saying and posting about their Jacked Pack subscriptions.
