I just love workout wear. Particularly running gear with cool design and innovative functionality.
At the Runner’s Expo before last weekend’s Scotia Waterfront Half-Marathon, I discovered CW-X Conditioning Wear. Totally impressed with compression gear overall, I had hoped to find a pair of running tights – and low and behold…
Choosing the Women’s ‘Pro’ tights, I was immediately impressed with their cool design and graphics, supreme fit (tighter than non-compression) with obvious support felt thru my hips and knees.
According to the CW-X website: The patented Support Web™ brings the hips, knees and ankles into proper alignment, reducing impact and load to the legs. The Support Web also creates a suspension system for the hamstrings and quadriceps, reducing workload in both the pull and push phase of the running motion.
So did the Pro’s make a difference on race day?
With the amount of compression wear I saw on race day (!), there’s no denying functional gear is where it’s at – and I definitely plan to buy more.
