Since that day I've been dying to try them out...Being a cheeky blogger I asked Zaggora if they needed any one to review a pair for them and I was over the moon when they said yes.
I got sent a pair of the Zaggora 2.0 to put to the test..
About the Zaggora 2.0
Hotpants™ 2.0 are lighter, stronger and better than the original!
Specially designed with Celu-Lite technology fabric lining, HotPants™ enhance your natural body temperature to warm you up in the areas you want to target most (thighs, bum, and legs).
Tested at the Chelsea School at Brighton University, HotPants™ are proven to use your body heat to increase energy expenditure before and after exercise by raising your core body temperature by up to 18%. Since you’re heating up and your body is using more energy, you are burning more calories; calorie burn increases by 26% in the hour after exercise with HotPants™ too. As we all know, as you burn calories, you lose weight.
The lab tests also demonstrated that in just 30 minutes of exercise, women lost 4x more weight with HotPants™ than they did when doing the same exercise in standard workout clothes.
What I think of the hot pants
I was so excited in trying the hot pants that when they arrived I put them straight on.They did feel very strange at first a bit like what I would imagine a wet suit to feel like (although I have never tried one!!) being a size 10 I ordered a medium as I wasn't sure which size would be best as they come in all sizes from -extra Small to extra extra Large,so a great range for everyone and this size fitted perfect.
Having the hot pants on I went straight out in them to get used to the feel of them,they did make a slight rubbing noise at first which made my kids laugh with the sound they made.They even shouted to each other " mums got her Zaggoras on!!" which made us all chuckle. Then I took the kids up to the running track to try them out.I did a few laps on the track,bends stretches and knee flicks and they felt very comfortable and padded keeping everything tightly in place.
I was very surprised once I got home,(I didn't notice any difference at first only a sense that they made me work harder as they felt slightly heavier than my usual running pants) as when I pulled them off that's when you notice they have done their job.They make you sweat loads and under your shorts you will see just how much you have sweat. The great thing is they keep all the sweat inside so you don't notice until after, once showered my skin felt cleansed and soft where they had been just like I had taken a sauna.
Zaggora set you a 2 weeks challenge where they ask you to weigh and measure yourself then wear your Zaggora product every day for 30 minutes whilst your active e.g whilst your walking,running in the gym or anything that you can think off.I have tried the hot pants for 2 weeks now and it was a big shock today to find I had lost 4 pounds.I think it would be a lot easier for me to lose more weight wearing these once the kids go back and our healthier diet starts back again to as its the holidays we have been eating far to many chips and ice cream but that's what summer is for isn't it?
Thing's I would recommend having tried them
Wash them out in cold water when you've exercised in them- they become very warm and wet through on the inside with sweat. Always best to rinse them out so as not to collect germs....
Drink some water when exercising to replace fluid with all the sweat you will be losing its best to keep your body fluids topped up.
I would say anyone who does not exercise much and wears these for 30 minutes a day doing some form of exercise could lose weight.I would buy these as I do love the idea of the Zaggora hot pants and think over time I will lose more weight with them.I have tried a few leggings that claim to make you lose weight and these are by far the best.
Only one personal criticism I would say that would make me think twice about buying these are, as a runner there is no where to put your key when you are out running.I run when everyone is at work/school so I have to take a key out with me and this along with comfort is the main thing I consider when buying new workout pants.I can appreciate that a pocket may let the sweat out but just a simple key ring on the outside? Just an idea!!
