Fitness Apparel with Built-in Weight. Yay or Nay?
Take weight off by adding it on?
W8FIT is a new brand of women's activewear. The product's custom design has pockets which hold half pound or quarter pound weights which you can add to increase resistance during your workout.
The founder/designer, Maya Kaminsky, says she lives in her workout clothes and wanted to create something different that would help women lose weight and stay fit whether they are training at the gym or just running around town.
The weights are the size of a credit card. Supposedly they're bend-able too.
Question is...would you wear it?
Personally, I'm just not sure the extra weight added to W8FIT pockets is all that necessary to dramatically change the effectiveness of your workout or weight-loss. I have no doubt it will slightly enhance the challenge of exercise moves but I'm not sure "wearing" weight is the right approach. I prefer to lift, pull or push weight...and then get rid of it! And if I'm going to "live" in my workout clothes, comfort and free range movement is key. For the record, I have NOT tried W8FIT activewear so my personal opinion is based on speculation.
Would you try W8FIT?
