About this project
The new goal is $10,481 - (To finish production, we still have to pay the manufacturing company to sew and package your clothes with love and care)
A new generation of weighted workout clothes designed specifically for women. The styles move with a woman's body, look slimming, and add resistance training. Each item has custom-designed pockets to hold W8FIT weights. W8FIT's weighted technology 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.
My goal is to launch the W8FIT line and beMade in the USA: it is important to bring jobs and manufacturing back to the United States. I’m almost there, and just need an additional $5,000 to fund the production in the US and get these great clothes out there. The money will go to purchasing the fabric and trims, pattern making, cutting, and sewing. All done in Chicago. We have lots of great rewards up to 20% off to offer in exchange for your help depending on how much you decide to pledge. Please check out the offers to your right.
When you are one person trying to run your distribution, manufacturing, accounting, finance, administrative, marketing, operations, and customer service departments during a 24 hour period each day, you start to wonder "How the heck am I going to grow this thing?" The answer is help from amazing supporters, like you.
Styles and Rewards
All of the styles are designed, developed, and tested by women who are experts in health and fitness. On a personal touch, anything that makes me look thinner, I fall in love with. That is why the tanks are long and rounded and the pants all have a seam down the back of the legs.

How it Works
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.
88% Nylon and 12% Lycra moisture wicking and pre-shrunk. It provides great coverage and shape retention with four way stretch for freedom of movement.

Yes, wearing weights around the waist while walking, hiking, jogging or climbing stairs adds resistance to the activity. Like muscles, the added resistance helps to strengthen the bones within your legs. Strengthening is often the result of an increase in bone mass density which helps fight Osteoporosis.
In both styles of pants, the extra weight is carried where the body naturally adds on extra weight - the stomach, at the center of mass. Using the waist pockets is great for planks, squats, lunges, and much more.
The cuffs help you move to the next level in your weight training. If you have been working with 5 lb weights for your shoulder and triceps and want to move up to 6 lbs, it may be difficult to jump one pound. The best way to increase your strength is to wear the 1/2 lb wrist cuffs together with your hand held weights.
