Make sure the latest gear you use to get fit delivers the goods.
CHOICE looks at the latest sportswear to see if they really improve performance or if their claims are full of hot air. We also discover what weird terms like "moisture wicking" and "proprioception" really mean, as well as looking into what you need to consider when buying your next pair of running shoes or cross trainers (and yes, there is a difference).
