#Giveaway: #Zaggora Hooded Body Blazar ($144) #fitness

Zaggora was first known in the fitness world for their HotPants, fitness shorts that are specially engineered using Celu-Lite technology, using your natural body heat to lose weight.  The theory is that the heat generated by your body can help break down fat and toxins that lead to cellulite.  By using more energy, they say you will burn more calories and that the calorie burn increases in the  30-60 minutes after exercising. In fact, Zaggora claims that you can lose up to two jean sizes in two weeks.  They even say you can have results if you just sleep in them for 6-8 weeks.

They went from their HotPants shorts, to HotPants 2.0, to capris and now they have an entire line of fitness clothing, including sports bras, tops and blazers.

I had the opportunity to review a Coola bra, Hot Top and the Hooded Body Blazer.  The Coola Bra is designed to keep you cool, dry and fresh.  There is mesh between the breast area and in back, making it breathable.  Another great feature is that it has UVA and UVB protection shields.   This is what I think is very cool about the Coola Bra--the fabric is made from teeny tiny coffee grounds and ice cool crystals.

I like how the Coola Bra stretches where it needs to and is very comfortable.   It is very well made.  I like that it is quick drying and wicks the sweat away from you.  I love that I can just toss it in the washer and dryer, too.  It hold the girls in place as well as makes them look great!

The Hot Top is very cute.  It is designed to make you sweat.  It, too, is made with fabric from nano coffee grounds and ice cool crystals, but just above the bust and along the sides.  The front and back are made from the Celu-Lite technology enhanced fabrics.  I love the way it fits--very flattering.  The seams on the front enhance the look by curving in at the waist.  I would say you could wear this with or without a sports bra, even though there is no built in bra, however, for more support, I would choose to wear a sports bra, like the Coola Bra, under it.   This is not machine washable.

The last item I received to review is not only my favorite, but the item that will be given away on this blog.  The Hooded Body blazer is amazing!  I love everything about it.  It, too, contains the Celu-Lite technology-enhanced fabric on the stomach, back and arms and the wicking sports mesh at the bust to keep you cool and fresh.  There is also mesh under the arms to aerate and neutralize odor.  There is "ice cool" jersey at the collar and sleeves to cool you down.

I love this blazer!  First off, it is extremely flattering.  It holds things in but is till amazingly comfortable.  I love that it has two zippered pockets on the front and a clear pocket on the arm for your phone or MP3 player.  I love the gray and black color with the yellow vinyl hood.  Most of all, I love how absolutely flattering it is!  I even shot a picture from behind so you can see how it cinches at the waste (with no discomfort) and looks feminine.  It is also very well made and durable.  I can say I feel incredibly sexy when wearing this!
I headed out for a walk and boy, can I tell you that this stuff really does heat you up.  I was sweating in the areas of the Celu-lite fabric.  I love how comfortable it feels.  I love the hood on it--perfect for windy days or when the sky decides to open up on you.  Here's hoping for a better bod for bikini season!

The only con is that the fabric has a bit of a smell--like neoprene.  I am hoping after several washings, the smell will go away.  Otherwise, I love everything about it and hope to work my trouble spots away!

I love the look of the hooded body blazer, you look fab in it. For me I like the idea of being able to sleep with clothing on and still being able to see the results, now that does sound great.

My favorite fitness activity is learning my favorite K-Pop dances. I used to ride my bike, which i still do often but only for fun not exercise. With dancing I feel like i burn more calories and lose weight faster when i dance because I can do it longer and never want to stop.

My favorite activity has always been walking on the beach. Since I live away from the beach at present, walking in the woods with my dog works well as fitness for both of us.
