The suit is manufactured from rubberized vinyl and comes in 2 pieces – a top and bottom part. It has a baggy style, which allows ease of movement during exercise and is suitable for both men and women.
They trap heat and promote sweating during activity. This can lead to a quick reduction in weight due to water loss and raising of the body’s temperature. When the temperature is raised the body burns more calories as fuel. This is similar to what happens in a real sauna. It also promotes the elimination of toxins through the sweat glands.
The fast reduction in weight can be of use to athletes that have pre-competition weigh-ins such as combat sports and jockeys.
Carry out your normal exercise routines but wear the sauna exercise suit over the top. Remember to drink plenty of fluids before and after your exercise work out.
You can buy sauna suits from specialist retailers online and some sports stores. You can also find them at competitive prices by searching online auction stores like eBay.
Some people have said that they are not particularly comfortable to do your normal workout in after a time, because of the amount of sweat that is produced. You may also be a little self conscious of doing a work out in public in a sauna suit such as at a gym.
They are certainly a cheap alternative to a sauna but it can’t really be said that they are better. A real sauna offers a relaxing environment for both body and mind.
