Workout Meals is a meal delivery service that is specifically designed for individuals who are short on time but still want to prioritise their health and fitness goals. The company uses only the highest quality ingredients from Australia and New Zealand, including produce from their own farm in Kulnura NSW. Real restaurant chefs and qualified nutritionists have designed tailored meals to support customers’ fitness journeys, no matter what type of workout they engage in.
The meals are always fresh, never frozen, and will remain fresh for up to 7 days when refrigerated. Customers can order today and have the meals delivered directly to their home or workplace through Workout Meals’ daily delivery service.
Workout Meals makes it easy for customers to choose the right meals for their goals by offering both goal-based and fixed meal packs. Their goal-based options include Weight Loss, Lean & Fit, Muscle Gain, and Meals for Anyone. They also have fixed sets for those following Low Carb, Keto, or Gluten Free diets. When selecting a meal pack, customers can choose to join the WM360 program or select a standard meal pack. The website then prompts customers to enter their gender and activity level, before recommending a set of 3 plan sizes based on the number of days they want meals.
Workout Meals offers a menu with 38-40 main meals that feature a variety of protein sources. While many meal delivery services tend to heavily feature chicken dishes, Workout Meals is no exception. 50% of their meals feature chicken as the protein source, with the remaining meals including options such as fish, beef, turkey, and pork. The meals are available in both “Regular” and “Large” sizes, with the “Large” meals being ideal for those who are more active and require more fuel. These “Large” meals typically weigh around 400g.
Ingredients & Preparation
What sets Workout Meals apart is their farm in Kulnura, an hour north of Sydney. They source many of their vegetables and eggs from this farm, and market themselves as a provider that has some of the freshest prepared meals you can buy.
In terms of ingredients and customisation,, Workout Meals does have a “Vegan” filter that shows only one vegan meal (at the time of writing). Workout Meals states that all meals are prepared in a commercial kitchen, which may not guarantee that the meals are gluten, nut, dairy, or crustacean-free. Therefore, they may not be suitable for those with severe allergies.
There are gluten-free options with around 20 different options available on the menu, but it’s important to keep in mind that there is a risk of contamination, so customers with serious allergies are advised to use caution. The menu also offers filters for meals that are free of peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, dairy, sesame, and soy.
Delivery & Packaging
Workout Meals delivers to over 3,000 locations on the East Coast of Australia. The days they deliver depend on your location – in central Sydney for example, delivery is available every day of the week, but in more rural areas, there may be only 2-3 delivery days per week. Delivery options include overnight delivery between 12am-6am or daytime delivery between 8am-6pm.
Standard delivery costs a flat fee of $15 but signing up for a regular subscription service eliminates the delivery fee. This makes it a great option for customers who want to save on delivery costs.
It’s also worth noting the minimum order size is $60, and you won’t find Workout Meal dinners in supermarkets – at this point, they’re only available online.
In terms of packaging, Workout Meals is pretty eco-friendly. Their cardboard box and liners are 100% recyclable. Simply tear apart the box and put it in your curbside bin. The liners are also recyclable and can be disposed of at soft plastic collection points. The freezer gel packs are also recyclable, the outer tubing is made of LDPE4 and can be put in soft plastic recycling bins at major supermarkets. The meal trays are also 100% recyclable and BPA free, you can put it in your curbside bin along with the cardboard sleeve. The vacuum seal film can be recycled in soft plastics.
Workout Meals has a virtual chat assistant to help with common questions, and also email support via [email protected].
Workout Meals is priced pretty comparably to other fitness-focused prepared meal delivery services, with regular meals priced at around $10.55 and large meals at around $12.95.
The minimum order required is $60, which allows customers to order boxes with as little as 5 meals. This is lower than the minimum limit of other services and is useful for those who want to stock up on a few meals. The meals are priced individually, so prices may vary.
Juices and snacks are priced at $3.95 and $2.45 respectively, which are reasonable prices. There is no discount system for larger orders, so there is no added benefit to increasing the number of meals in your order.
Workout Meals is overwhelmingly well-received by customers, with happy consumers suggesting the meals are tasty, good for busy people and great value for money. Where Workout Meals could improve, according to reviews is their delivery service, customer service and some issues with the NDIS service it provides.
