Ages ago I was sent a pair of orange Zaggora hot pants and I never did pluck up the courage to give them a go – they might look amazing on an Ozzie beach but natsomuch in the burbs of South East London. However, I passed them on to my friend Kathryn who is a bit of a gym bunny and she put them thoroughly to the test. If you know anything about Zaggora, they claim to help you burn more calories while exercising. They also increase the metabolic rate in the hour after exercise which should mean you’re still burning fat post run.

When Kathryn wore them, she reported that they radically heat up the thighs and bottom, and not to put too finer point on it, make you sweat like a builder carrying hods up a ladder. As a regular exerciser, she definitely felt she was getting more out of a work out in terms of fat burning, so the upshot is – a convert! 

Zaggora have recently introduced the full Body Blazer which means problem areas such as upper arms can also be treated to the sweat n heat burner. Fans are convinced they work to speed up weight loss…I’m not expecting to ever be in a position myself to be able to find out one way or another!
