We've talked a lot about jumping rope to stay fit and torch a bunch of calories. And now, it's time to hula-hoop.
In about 20 minutes, you can burn 200 calories. And most importantly, blast belly fat and big thighs. And develop a sexy butt.
And if you recall using a hula-hoop during your childhood years, then you know how much fun it can be.
This ain't your mama's neon pink hula-hoop. Modern Hoops are now fashioned with weights inside for the extra workout burn. Some hoops come with pretty bling and colors. And a few hoops are able to collapse to a smaller size for easy travel.
We like any easy exercise that whittles your waist. And Christabel Zamor has a new book out--- Hooping: A Revolutionary Fitness Program. She claims that if you hoop it up 4 times a week, in a month, your belly, butt, and thighs will look amazing.
Maybe some of you take hoop workout classes already.
Check out http://www.hoopgirl.com/. You can buy a professional hoop here for about $30. And the site explains the new modern style hula-hooping:
HoopGirl Hoops are constructed of heavy weight durable plastic tube which is thick and resilient. They are larger in size than "traditional" toy hoops which makes them rotate slower so they are easier to keep spinning. The fabric and vinyl tapes create friction so the hoop "sticks" to your hips very effectively. This allows many people who could never hoop to experience easy success!
And hooping is excellent exercise for all ages. In other words, size, sense of rythym, and age, have nothing to do with skill, when it comes to hooping.
There is also a website, http://www.hooping.org/ that even shows you how to make your own hula hoop or to start your own hoop group in town.
As the old saying goes: "What goes around, comes around."
