When you buy an expensive workout gear, do you get a better deal?
We’re all about performance in our everyday lives.
Whether it’s an expensive fitness kit, a new workout gadget or a pricey pair of new sneakers, buying a fitness gadget or fitness gear can be a no-brainer for many.
But how often do you actually use it?
And how well does it actually work?
We know from personal experience that the best way to get a workout in is to do it, and we also know that the average user doesn’t really care about the quality of the gear they’re buying.
But we don’t really know what’s the best deal.
Is it worth buying a new pair of sneakers that don’t last long?
Do you get the same workout with a new set of shoes?
We wanted to find out, so we bought our first pair of workout gear from the internet and put it through the paces.
We’ve got an all-new pair of Adidas trainers, a pair of Nike FuelBand wristbands, a Nike+ GPS tracker, a Fitbit Flex wristband and a pair the Apple Watch.

To get a good sense of the fitness gear we’re using in this article, we asked a group of experienced fitness bloggers from all over the world, including many who are also members of the popular fitness site Elite Fitness.
We asked for their thoughts on the best fitness gear, whether they used it, what they like about it and what their biggest gripes were with the equipment.
