Everyone has a g-force (or gravity) .
All the time while on the ground. 14.7 psi at sea level or 29.92 barometric pressure.
What pilots feel are multiples of g-force caused by excelleration.
When you ride a rollercoaster and you feel like you are coming out of your seat, you are feeling a zero gravity. When you get to the bottom of the hill you are feeling an added gravity on you.
The suites that you are refering to are called g-suites, but they have nothing to do with adding or subtracting g-forces. They are designed to restrict blood flow to the lower parts of your body so that your uppper body does not have less blood to it, to help prevent 'black out'.
