BEST FOR Work­ing on proper form. THE GOOD We’ve long been big fans of Wood­way’s slat­ted run­ning sur­face, which de­liv­ers a re­al­is­tic ground feel and is non-mo­torised. Not fa­mil­iar with the con­cept? There’s no as­sis­tance from elec­tric­ity with this one – you move the belt by the force of your own gait, which means your body is re­spon­si­ble for con­trol­ling the speed. The only elec­tron­ics are on the dash­board dis­play. On the pre­vi­ous ver­sion it was dif­fi­cult to change gears smoothly; its steep arc forced you to speed up and slow down quickly, mak­ing it best for in­ter­vals. The new Curve Trainer has a shal­lower lift at the ends, mak­ing it much eas­ier to con­trol, and bet­ter for longer, steady­paced jogs. THE GRIPE With­out guid­ance, testers found it tax­ing and of­ten gave up af­ter a mile or so. Form is key – you have to lean slightly and en­gage your posterior chain.
