Hula Hoops

Hula Hoop

Yesterday my new Hula Hoop and Hoopdance Workout DVD arrived. My personal trainer has emphasized that variety in exercise is important. I’m walking 20 to 40 minutes a day, depending on the day. I’m hitting the gym 3 times a week and doing interval training, as well as weights. So after watching three of my friends, including Cris, enjoy the hula hoop, I thought I might give it a try.

I picked up a Weighted Hula Hoop and the Hoopdance Workout from Amazon, as these two looked like a great way to get started with hula hooping. I haven’t done anything like this in forever. I figure this will be fun for me to do once or twice a week.

Have you tried something new lately? Have you ever tried hula hooping? Let me know!

      Oh. My. Gosh. This is awesome. I’ve never been able to keep a hula hoop up before so I can’t imagine doing a weighted one! But I’ll admit that it looks like a seriously fun way to work out.

      I’ve seen LTHP’s videos on FB and IG and it looks like so much fun! It’s mesmerizing to watch that hoop spin around! I hope you enjoy it!

      I love to hula hoop even though I can’t keep one up for long – do you get that outfit on the front of Hoopdance, too??!?! You’ve inspired me, I think I might buy one this weekend – a hula hoop, not the outfit, I don’t think I could quite work it!

      I have a hoop and some hoop dvds from Hoopnotica. It’s taken me a while to waist-hoop, but I’m awesome at Halos!

      I haven’t hula hooped since I was a kid but I can definitely see how it would be a good workout, especially on the core! What a great idea! Sounds like a fun workout! =)

      I have two friends who hoop pretty regularly. I seem to be hooping-challenged, though. Can’t keep one up to save my life.
