Can and undergarment help you burn calories? Well, that is the promise of ShaToBu. I was asked to be a ShaToBu insider and give the garment a try. As "The Workout You Wear" I am excited to share news as I spend more days trying out the garment.
ShaToBu, is a hip name for a new type of undergarment that promises to help you Shape, Tone and Burn while you wear it. Studies show that ShaToBu helps users burn 12% extra calories. Over a year, that can amount to 30,000 extra calories. Not bad and certainly worth a try in my book.
Here is a bit more info from the company:
"Created by chiropractor Dr. Denise Perron, ShaToBu is a revolutionary new concept in shapewear that uses everyday movement to shape, tone and burn calories. ShaToBu is ideal for new moms who want to get back in shape, women who want to lok great for a special event or just about any woman who wants to be more fit.
ShaToBu is based on the principle of resistance training. The simple yet ingenious technology uses seamless resistance bands to make muscles work a little harder during natural movement, like walking. When muscles work harder, more calories are burned."
So, I'm just getting started, but I will report back with my experiences as I go along. For the first day, the garment is surprisingly comfortable, and provides quite a bit of resistance. I feel like my inner thighs and butt are working just a little harder to do everyday tasks. Of course, you need to move to get the benefits so I'll keep moving as much as possible and keep you updated on my progress.
