A few people in the gym and on Instagram have asked what I’m wearing around my waist. So I’ve decided to share with you what this Sweet Sweat Waist Trimmer is. Most importantly why I wear it and whether it works for me. Three years ago I was looking for a good sweat belt to target my waist area. I was then recommended this tummy trimmer by my bestie Izzy. After seeing Kylie Jenner from the Kardashian Jenner family wearing the Amazon’s best selling waist trimmer to maintain her core and abs, I had to try it out myself.

What is a Sweet Sweat Waist Trimmer?

The Sweet Sweat Waist Trimmer is by Sport Research. It’s designed to enhance your workout by increasing thermogenic activity and sweating. So basically this fitness belt is placed around your waist and abdominal region to increase core temperature during exercise. This then in turn reduces abdominal fat. The sweat belt is made with extra thick, latex-free Neoprene to promote sweating in the waist area. The inside of the belt is moisture repellent and doesn’t slip while working out. These waist workout bands come in different colours and are designed to be used by men and women.

You can use this waist trainer on its own, but Sports Research recommends to use it in combination with their Workout Enhancer gel. The gel comes in a jar and stick form.

How I use my sweet sweat waist trimmer?

When I bought my waist trimmer via Amazon few years back, I’ve got a sample of the Workout Enhancer gel with my order. Hence have first used the waist band with the topical gel that claims to improve circulation, energy and sweating during my workout. Sweat Sweat claims that their thermogenic gel helps burn more calories by making us sweat more using their products. According to the manufacturer the more we sweat, the more energy is being consumed by our body.

Once I’ve run out of the Workout Enhancing gel sample, I’ve used the sweat band without the gel on my belly. I’ve noticed that I was still sweating a lot more around my abdomen compared to exercising without the waist band. However with the gel I was definitely sweating more than just the band alone. Since my brother has got me a tub of the Workout Enhancer gel for my birthday last year, I’ve always used the belly trimmer with the gel.

I usually wear my sweat belt when I workout in the gym, go for a long outdoor walk with friends or family and when I workout using Nintendo Ring Fit Adventure.

How to clean a Sweet Sweat band

When taking your sweat belt off, dry off the sweat using a towel or some tissue first. Then use warm soapy water and a cloth to wipe it clean. Let the waist trimmer air dry, ready for your next workout session.

Do I recommend using Sweet Sweat Waist Trimmer?

I personally love using my waist trimmer, therefore yes I recommend the Sweet Sweat Waist Trimmer. Have I lost weight? The answer is yes I have, otherwise I wouldn’t use it. Obviously just wearing the sweat belt alone wont get rid of belly fat. It’s just like using thermogenic weight loss pills (aka fat burners), they wont work unless you combine it with regular exercise and a balanced diet. By sweating a lot more, I’ve definitely lost water weight. Whether I have burned a lot of fat by using the waist trimmer and the workout enhancing gel, I honestly don’t know. I do however lose weight more quickly with the use of the belt compared to without it. Since I am seeing weight loss results more quickly using this workout accessory, I’ll continue using it.

As you can see I have the classic Sweet Sweat Waist Trimmer in black and pink. Though I’m very happy with it, I would love to try the new Sweat Sweat Pro Series Waist Trimmer. This too has been highly rated on Amazon and also comes in the same black and pink colour or just plain black. I’ve to say the waist band is of great quality, as I’ve used it for 3 years and it’s still in perfect condition and still comfortable to wear.

The Enhancing Workout gel that I currently use by Sweet Sweat is the original one that comes in a black jar with yellow writing. Once I run out of the tub, I’m planning to try one of their scented workout enhancing stick gels.
