Hotting Up: Zaggora Challenge Week 2

Erm, hello there ๐Ÿ™‚ …here is my update on week 2 of my Zaggora Challenge! And before you say anything…yes, it WAS the longest second week in the history of mankind!

I loved wearing the HotPants but I struggled with getting them washed and dried in time for the next session so it meant I never got a chance to wear them seven days in a row; that, or it just wasn’t convenient with work / socialising etc.

Before I get started again, lets recap my measurements and you can read my Week 1 post {here} if you haven’t already…

These were my starting measurements:


(L) 59.5 cm

(R) 60 cm


100 cm


75 cm

These were my end of Week 1 measurements:


(L) 59 cm (-0.5 cm)

(R) 59.5 cm (-0.5 cm)


99.5 cm (-0.5 cm)


75 cm (0)

I managed to squeeze in some running, walking, an outdoor gym session, aerial yoga, ragga dance class, rowing, power plate session, stretch class, Bikini Me class aaaaand a little more running ๐Ÿ™‚ …and this was just what I did wearing the HotPants!

These were my end of Week 2 measurements:


(L) 58 cm (-1.5 cm)

(R) 59 cm (-1 cm)


99 cm (-1 cm)


75 cm (0)

As you can see, there has been no change around my waist but this was to be expected as I really didn’t have much to lose there! I did want to reduce my thighs and hips a little though and even with my scattergun approach to wearing the HotPants I have seen some fab results!

Whilst taking my measurements for this post, I dug out my Body Fat monitor and decided to take my reading as I hadn’t done so in a while. In fact, I almost forgot that I owned it!

My Body Fat % came out at 22.4% which is below average (which is actually overweight!) but is about right for Fitness ๐Ÿ™‚ Whoop! I am happy with that! Take a look at the table below to find out the ranges of Body Fat %. This chart however, does not take into account age which is also a factor (source)

Check out the chart below which takes into account age (for women):

In future, I will definitely be whipping out my Zaggora HotPants every now and again to workout in especially when I want to get my sweat on! Now with the sudden change of British weather I think I’d love to add a pair of full length pants and a long sleeved top to my collection ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ll have no excuse for not working out ๐Ÿ˜‰ …you can check out the entire range for yourself over on the Zaggora website!

Zaggora have kindly offered a pair of their long HotPants for a prize on the evening of the Keep it simpElle event!! Read all about the event here ๐Ÿ™‚

Have you tried Zaggora products before?! What other methods do you use to ramp up the results from your workouts?!

    I have never heard of these before, but I'm going to have to take a look into them more! I've put on a little more weight than I would like to admit since I've been off for injury, adding these when I can get started again might just be what I need to like you put it "ramp it up" a little.. Thanks for sharing!

      You can wear them even to do the housework in! Perfect for when you are out with an injury and for when you are back on form! …hope you recover soon ๐Ÿ™‚ and if you try them, pop back and let me know what you think!

      I whipped them out for spinning last week! …still totally in love with them! …I was a little under the weather too so they helped me ramp up my workout without me going crazy ๐Ÿ™‚
