Our story is unique, Maya Kaminsky, certified personal trainer and aerobic instructor, conceived the idea for W8FIT while teaching an abs class. She wanted to increase the resistance on the basic crunch without holding bulky weights. That is when a new generation of weighted workout clothes was born. Why not just put the weights in clothes? She went home that day and used her background in fashion design to draw the patterns. One year later she used kickstarter to help secure funding to finish production.
All the styles move with a woman’s body, look slimming, and add resistance training to meet all your fitness goals. Each item has specially designed pockets that hold W8FIT weights. Whether it's hitting the gym, running, dancing, playing sports, grocery shopping, or exploring the outdoors, W8FIT keeps you fit and in style. W8FIT strives to boost your fat burning potential by harnessing the power of your regular daily activities to not only help you lose weight but also improve overall fitness.
Your body burns calories based on weight, exercise, duration and intensity. When you add weight to your body, your muscles work harder, burning more calories. Properly weighted clothes will intensify any activity or exercise, increasing the metabolic rate, improving your results by burning more calories in the same amount of time, and making any workout more effective.
