The Top Fitness Equipment and Apparel of 2018

The year has already flown by.

TYIG-Fitness-gear-patrol-lead-full

Getting faster, better and stronger has always been top of mind for athletes. What diet will help you reach your lifting goals? What shoes will make you run faster? What tracker will finally give you the data you need to excel as an everyday athlete, or as an elite? This year, the thought behind these concepts drove new technical clothing lines that help individuals survive the cold, heat and everything in between — and push themselves for longer. We covered everything from workout nutrition to watches that will monitor your overall health (not just steps and calories), and ways for you to workout literally anywhere. The rise of on-the-go and at-home fitness apps continued its trajectory this year. These 45 stories showcase the diversity of new products launched in 2018 — all of which aim to help you accomplish your fitness goals.
