Our Sauna Suit Design
Our Sauna Suits are designed to ensure minimal air flow is allowed in or out of the suit creating a rise in temperature within the Sauna Suit known as the "sauna effect" the suits are also referred to as Sweat Suits. Wearing the Sauna Suit in any form of physical activity will cause an increase in your body temperature causing your body to sweat.
The Science behind Sauna Suits
The misconception amongst people is the Sauna Suit will only help lose water weight. It is true the Sauna Suit will help lose water weight and this can be a great benefit to those that hold excess water weight but the Sauna Suit does so much more to battle weight loss.
The Sauna Suit accelerates weight loss during exercise by increasing your metabolic rate. This means not only does exercising in the Sauna Suit require more energy but the Sauna Suit stimulates your body to burn fat. This means that instead of using carbs or muscle tissue, fat is the fuel of choice, meaning you lose weight in an effective manner. It is fact that exercising in the heat really can "burn off" the pounds.
More Sauna Suit Use = More Sweat
The fitter and better acclimatised you become to exercising in warm conditions, the more readily you sweat due to better thermoregulation. This is great for athletes using the Sauna Suit to acclimatise to hotter climates and also means the more often you use the Sauna Suit the more you will sweat.
Losing Fat while you Rest
During the hour or two after exercise in the Sauna Suit, you continue burning calories faster than normal as your body pays of the oxygen debt, replenishes its energy reserves and repairs muscle tissue. The longer and more intense the work out in the Sauna Suit, the greater this "after burn" will be. This post exercise increase in Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) is called the excess post exercise oxygen consumption or "after burn" and comes chiefly from the body fat stores.
Increases Health and Well Being
Sweating has proven its effectiveness in flushing out toxins and disease and maintaining optimal physical as well as mental health. Sweating helps the body cleanse itself and replace older dead cells and also sweat clears bacteria out of surface layers of the skin. The process of sweating helps improve circulation from the blood vessels, and gives the skin a fresh look and feel. It also helps to remove toxins from our body and other minerals and chemicals our body might have absorbed from the environment or from food or drink we've ingested.
