Everyone and their mother have probably seen Kim Kardashian and her super hourglass figure in her waist trainer. All these paid celebrities boasting about a product just makes you not want to believe it. I personally thought waist trainers were ridiculous and served no purpose but I was offered one to review so I figured I would give it a try to put the waist trainer nonsense to rest.
Do I vouch for waist trainers now?
When I received the trainer it was simple and didn’t seem to crazy to use so I strapped up and started my work out. I lift, run, do HIIT, and a wide variety of other exercises so I made sure to put this baby to the test. Being that I had a c-section 6 months prior, I immediately felt a difference. Anything that involved jumping always hurt just a little from my tummy being bounced around but with the trainer on, it held everything tight. The velcro on this particular waist trainer is super sturdy and will definitely hold tight on you.
I have been wearing the waist trainer for several weeks now and I am thoroughly impressed. The compression of the trainer has helped me with my endurance on certain exercises that I would give out on due to the pain. The amount of support on my lower back and abdominal muscles have been fantastic and welcomed to my recovering body. It’s also been great for maximizing the burn during my workouts by retaining body heat, helping me shed excess water weight, and helping to improve my posture.
I use to doubt waist trainers and thought they were a ridiculous fad but now my mind has been changed. They are a great product that many fitness enthusiasts could benefit from. I highly recommend checking out a waist trainer as well for anyone who is interested in picking up one of their own!
