Created by Dr. Denise Perron, ShaTobu – the Workout You Wear – is a revolutionary new concept in shapewear that uses everyday movement to Shape, Tone and Burn extra calories. Dr. Perron, a board-certified chiropractor for more than 20 years, noticed that although she prescribed specific exercises for patients, many didn't follow through consistently. She made it a goal to find ways for her patients to get the benefit of exercising without having to alter the daily routine.
Seeing more and more patients wearing shapewear, Dr. Perron came up with the ingenious idea of developing a shaper that could provide muscle toning and exercise. By building resistance bands directly into the shapewear, muscles work harder during natural movement, like walking or climbing stairs. As a result of the increased muscle work, not only is there a toning effect but more calories are burned throughout the day.
Once Dr. Perron’s prototype was perfected, she set off to prove its efficacy by conducting research studies in the United States and Canada. Scientific studies conducted at the University of Virginia show that women wearing ShaToBu shapewear burn up to 12 percent more calories during everyday activities.
