Yes, Sauna Suits Can Actually Help You Lose Weight

While it may seem like just another weight loss hoax (we’re looking at you, waist trainers), a recent study suggests sauna suits can actually help you slim down. A team of researchers from the High Altitude Exercise Physiology Program at Western State Colorado University found in 2017 that wearing these neoprene, wetsuitlike garments while you workout can help speed up your metabolic rate, which can, in turn, promote weight loss. Exercising in heat or wearing a sauna suit to increase your core body temperature while you exercise, they found, can also lead to greater calorie burn. Ready to give one a try?
