Over to the scientific stuff and what they are made of and why they work better than the sports clothes we are used to. Celu-Lite Technology™ is a patent pending, multi-layer fabric technology harnessing the body’s natural heat during exercise to help you burn more calories.
The fabric is similar to that of a child's wet suit. The 'hot pants' I have are quite thick and I wondered if I might drown in my own sweat when wearing them! I put them on and they worked a bit like spanx, I immediately stood up taller and sucked myself in - this is good!
Inside the package I received was a '2 week challenge' leaflet. The idea is to wear the pants for 30 mins per day whilst exercising. So I got dressed and ready to run (I don't do running) and low and behold as good luck would have it the heavens opened and it PELTED down with rain - hoorah, run cancelled! So I decided to do a pilates DVD I borrowed from a friend instead! It's perfect for me. Each pilates section is broken down into 10 mins slots so I did the abs section (only, I didn't want to push myself to fast and too hard on day 1!).
The 2 week challenge leaflet encourages to take your weight and some body measurements so I did that. In 2 weeks I shall aim to exercise in the hot pants every day and re-measure myself. I don't need to lose weight, I do need to tone and I do need to move more. I very rarely get off my ass as I work from the PC. I don't do any physical exercise at all because I make all the lame excuses one can make, the biggest being 'I don't have time' - the truth is I HATE EXERCISE!
What have I done so far:
Sunday - 10 min abs pilates
Monday - nothing because I could barely move because of said 10 mins above
Tuesday - 10 mins abs, 10 mins bums and 10 mins arms pilates
I am predicting that Wednesday I will be in bed unable to move!
I should be ashamed at how crap I am at exercise but these hot pants are making me think about doing
more some - this is good!
Do you exercise? How often? What do you do? What do you think about this 'technology' for sportswear? Would love to hear your thoughts.
I'll update you all in 2 weeks when I look
like Elle Mcphereson the same.
