I bought 1 of these suits while I was working in Afghanistan after not having done a serious workout in over 5 years. After 20 years of ground pounding in the Marine Corps running had lost its appeal to me; my knees were just too beat up. Just wearing the suit and doing my normal daily work routine I lost 4 pounds in the 1st week.
After 2 weeks of just wearing it and performing my daily work routine I could feel a significant difference in my lower back, knees and shoulders. This suit subtly forces you to strengthen your natural posture and strengthens the smaller muscles responsible for joint stability. I LOVE THIS SUIT!
Over all I’ve lost 17 pounds in a 3 month period without changing my diet and am back down to my pre-retirement weight of 175 lbs! The level of joint pain has literally gone from a 8 on a scale of 1 to 10 to a 2! I can go up and down stairs with almost no effort/joint pain and am considering returning to martial arts. This suit is GREAT in the assistance of rehabilitation as well as increasing the efforts and results of a normal work out.
I bought a suit for my wife to help her return to her pre-baby weight WITHOUT going to the gym. She’s had the suit for 2 months and has lost 12 lbs just walking around the block for 15 to 20 min a day! This suit IS A GYM in and of itself! I’ve recommended this suit to my family and friends.
