GotyGoty HotWear – Product Review

Product Review time friends.  I was sent the GotyGoty Anaconda Pant Hot Capri in size 2XL

Upon first glance, they look like typical athletic yoga pants. But the texture of the material feels more like a scuba suit.

GotyGoty products are made of neoprene – a synthetic rubber that many  laptop sleeves and orthopedic braces (wrist, knee, etc.) are made of.

Specifically, these pants are made of 60% neoprene, 15% nylon, 15% polyester, 10% lycra.FullSizeRender-15

The tagline of this brand: “Because You Deserve Happiness”  …. Hmmm, anyone else slightly offended here?

Is this box implying that I’m NOT happy now?  That happiness is only is achieved from becoming slimmer? :/

*Smh*

Any-who….I was definitely curious of this product’s claims of losing extra weight up to 5X Faster.

Here’s what came in the box:

  • The pants
  • A measuring tape
  • Postcards and stickers of Ms. Green, GotyGoty’s brand mascot, and
  • Two reusable bags

This magic fabric helps you sweat more during your workout activities.

It promises to enhance muscle performance and improve circulation and is meant to get you a slimmer physique.

To achieve great results using your GotyGoty product it is advised to wear them every day or at least  5 days a week for few hours even if you are not exercising. You can wear them inside your work cloths. GotyGoty product can really help you stay warm in winter time. To better enjoy your GotyGoty product, stay active, eat fresh & clean, drink less soda and lots of water.

I wore these pants in a variety of different ways as suggested by the website, over the last month.  And here’s what happened…

Activity Level: Low

I wore these pants for a few hours during the workday, simply sitting in front of a computer with very little physical activity.

Even with minimal movement that my regular day job provides, the fabric of these pants certainly does makes it easy to sweat …

Activity Level: Medium

I wore these pants to walk to my lindy hop lesson.  Approximately a 45min walk at a regular stroll pace, followed by a 60-min dance lesson.

These pants were a very close and super comfortable fit.   No worrying about rolling or falling down of the waistband while moving around.  And the snug fit keeps all of you held in place.  No unnecessary jiggle.  Which I definitely appreciate while walking and working out in general 🙂

The hidden inside pocket to stash cash and keys were perfect.  And the cellphone side pocket was super convenient for the walk.

At the end of the 1h 45-min of activity …. these pants were a challenge to take off.  Because they were super sweaty and sticking to my body.

These pant’s fabric increase your core body temperature which makes it easy to sweat … and I can see why you’d want to maximize your fitness routine by sweating more….

Activity Level: High

I decided to wear my GotyGoty pants for Day 2 of Lindyworks dance workshops.  6-hours of non-stop lindy hop and jazz….(click here to read about it from last year)

Wearing these pants all day was a BIG mistake – I thought I was gonna die. 😮

They were cooking me from the inside out.  Regardless of the gallons of water I continued to drink all throughout the day … it seemed like it wasn’t staying in my system.

These pants were dripping with sweat … so much so that I felt trickles from its cuffs roll down into my ankles and socks.  And once removed I was totally drained.

Dehydration is no joke!

Product Warning:

  • You are encouraged to maintain good hydration while wearing your GotyGoty products for a long periods of time.
  • These products are not to be worn during pregnancy and are not recommended to wear to sleep in – FYI!

Sweat = Burning Calories?

So, all this really leads to the question:  IS sweat directly related to the amount of calories burned and weight loss?

Jenny Scott, MM-HR, NASM-CPT, CES, PES, FNS, Education Advisor for the National Academy of Sports Medicine, says:

“No! Sweat is not a gauge of how hard you are working,” Scott says. Our bodies produce sweat as a way to cool down, so if anything, it’s an indicator of how hot your body is. And hotter core temperatures don’t equal more calories burned

Care Instructions and How to Get Yours

Cleaning my GotyGoty pants were easy, as they are machine washable.  It’s recommended that they be washed on a gentle cycle, with cold water and with a very soft detergent.   Do not machine dry.  I’ve been hang drying it to make sure the fabric continues to stay in its best shape.
