The sun has been shining brightly in London recently, which means 3 things: lathering on sunscreen, attempting to get a proper tan and getting my body beach ready. The latter is, unfortunately, easier said than done. When I was given the opportunity (or well… I actually was the only one that was willing) to trial Lunaling Capris for The Amazing Blog, I saw that as an opportunity to finally make use of my newly purchased running shoes and the start of my weekly running routine.
Lunaling exercise pants are famed to aid in weight loss and getting smoother, softer skin, which come in 3 types: Shorts, Capris and Leggings. They are made of very thick, stretchy fabric that is breathable and very comfortable to wear. The ‘technology’ behind this collection is that the pants use your natural body temperature to increase the heat around the areas where it's hard to tone up: legs, bum and tum – simply brilliant.
As I’m just in my twenties and am lucky to not have dimples on my body (yet!), I can’t say if it helped in getting smoother skin. However, for a girl that doesn’t sweat much working out normally, wearing these Capris have definitely stimulated the ‘troubled areas’ to sweat… buckets. Good thing is that even though you sweat, you won’t feel or see it through your pants because of this specially designed fabric.
Now 6 weeks later, I can say that not only have my thighs and tummy toned up a bit, I also feel more energised and awake after my morning work-out. Maybe it’s the endorphins, maybe it’s the sun – I don’t know. One thing I do know is that I’ll definitely continue using these pants when working out and it’s a no-brainer I’ll be getting the Leggings for winter.
