AGOGIE resistance pants will make you burn more calories

Not everyone has time to hit the gym three days a week. But with these resistance pants, you can tone your legs and burn fat while walking the dog.

  • What is resistance training? It’s any exercise that requires you to work against an elastic material or your body weight.
  • What are the benefits of resistance training? It’s less likely to cause injury than lifting heavy weights, and you need little equipment.
  • How can I try resistance training? The new AGOGIE 2.0 pants help you train as you walk around the neighborhood.

So, you want to get lean. Not like Hugh-Jackman-as-Wolverine lean, but trim enough to look good on the beach. It would be nice to have a little more tone in your legs, too. The only problem is, you don’t want to visit the gym. Maybe you don’t have time, or perhaps you consider squats to be a form of torture.

This might sound like an impossible dream, but there is one way of making it happen. The AGOGIE 2.0 resistance pants help you build muscle and burn calories as you walk around.

Let the training begin

What are resistance pants?

Most physical training involves some kind of resistance. By using our muscles to push against this force, we make them stronger. We also use up some of the sugars that would otherwise be stored as fat.

Resistance pants use elastic forces to work your muscles. Each leg has several long strips of rubber woven into the fabric. As you move your leg forwards, you have to stretch the elastic. Take 5000 steps every day, and you can imagine the effect on your legs.

The AGOGIE 2.0 pants help you build muscle in this way. They contain eight elastic strips, providing resistance in all directions. They are comfortable to wear throughout the day and they look pretty good, too.

Burn more calories

Many athletes use resistance training to improve their strength and endurance. In fact, over 200 professional sportsmen and women have adopted AGOGIE pants as part of their training regimen. That said, you don’t need to be an Olympian to benefit from these resistance pants.

Nothing too strenuous

When you initially put them on, you can feel some resistance. But after a few minutes, your legs get used to working a bit harder. Consequently, it doesn’t feel like exercise.

Training in the backyard

The results say otherwise. When you change into your normal pants, you should feel lighter on your feet. In addition, you may notice a slimmer waist. It takes a significant amount of extra energy to work against the rubber, especially if you go jogging.

With two levels of resistance to choose from, you can create the perfect workout.

Super comfortable

The fit is fashionably slim, with a little more room towards your calves. Foot loops ensure the resistance continues all the way down your legs. On a practical note, these pants also have pockets.

“Leave the cords, clips, sleds, and straps behind. With 8 resistance bands stitched inside, AGOGIE adds constant tension to every movement, quickly warming your muscles and challenging you in new ways no matter where you are. No set-up required.” — Aaron Mottern on IndieGoGo
