Rubber Body Suit for Weight Reduction


Some individuals utilize rubber body suits designed for weight reduction during exercise. These suits are similar to those used in cold water activities. Weight reduction rubber suits raise body temperature particularly during exercise due to markedly increased perspiration. Some athletes such as bodybuilders actually use water sport rubber suits during exercise for increased water weight loss. They are also known as sauna suits.

Spot reduction

  • Since it's often difficult for people to "spot reduce" or lose weight on particular body parts, some turn to rubber suits in order to provide greater focus on a specific area. According to the Patent Office, the insulated areas of the rubber suit contain elastic yet non-porous sections usually made of neoprene which are designed to specifically cover the fatty areas of the body.

The process

  • Wearing a rubber suit during exercise causes the body to sweat far more extensively. By preventing normal ventilation to the covered areas maximizing perspiration and a rapid loss of water occurs. This water loss causes the body to burn calories and lose water weight very quickly.

Water Weight Loss

  • Weight reduction achieved through a rubber suit is primarily due to water loss. Therefore, as is the case with liquid protein diets, the weight is typically put back on very quickly. Rubber weight loss suits can also inhibit the normal sweat evaporation and cooling of the body. This is quite dangerous and can cause heat exhaustion or even death from dehydration or overexertion on the heart.


  • Most experts do not recommend wearing a rubber weight loss suit for weight reduction. Time To Run Magazine which provides information on running and fitness says "they should be avoided altogether due to the high risk of hyperthermia". They further suggest that for long term weight loss to actually wear light clothing during exercise.
