August 04, 2015 2 min read

Is it possible to lose weight while you sleep? To lose weight while you are sitting around doing pretty much next to nothing? Maybe. A high tech clothing line, which currently features vests and insoles, claims to help you do just that. thin ice lighweight vest thin ice insole It claims to trick your metabolism into high gear by making your body think its temperature has dropped. https://youtu.be/vP8wt94JhGY The Thin Ice clothing line was designed by Toronto based personal trainer and former athlete Adam Paulin. "Based on estimates derived from our prototypes, competitors and scientific literature we estimate that you'll be able to burn between 500 and 1,000 calories a day, just by wearing our clothing for the recommended duration," said Paulin. Paulin is currently running an Indiegogo campaign in order to bring this technology to interested parties. Paulin claims that the clothing lowers your temperature but you will not notice beyond a few seconds of adjusting when you first put it on. Think of it as jumping into a cold pool. But don't worry, "if you do feel the chill you can always adjust the temperature of your Thin Ice clothing via smartphone to accommodate your comfort level," said Paulin. The clothing uses Peltier cooling chips on parts of the body that contain several heat receptors. Paulin says that 50% of our daily calorie intake goes toward temperature regulation so a little teak can lead to a fairly large expenditure of energy. "I've spent a lot of time asking myself how we can hack our bodies into optimal performance using science. There is a certain satisfaction in making your body do your bidding," said Paulin. The clothing comes with an app that allows you to control the temperature, check the number of calories burned and set a timer to activate the clothes. The Indiegogo campaign has exceeded its target and should begin shipping in December. Do you buy these claims? This is the same principle that applies to metabolism boosting cold showers and cooler bedroom temperatures at night. Is this the next big product in weight loss? Would you buy one?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number.

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
