hoola hoop

Who remembers hula hooping with your friends back in grade school? I remember having contests during phys-ed to see who could keep their hoop spinning the longest. Although I’m pretty sure I never won, I remember how much fun it was to try.

Now, I watch my daughters and nieces with envy as they spin their cool new neon, light-up and glitter-filled hula hoops around and around. And, (because I’m a trainer) it has crossed my mind, a time or two, that the movement hooping requires looks like a fantastic workout for the hips, abs and even legs and glutes.

It’s been decades since I’ve attempted to use a hula hoop but thanks to Hoopnotica and their Hoopnotica HoopDance and HoopnoticaFit classes, I’m so excited to give it another go ’round!

Hoopnotica has been around for the last 7 years and has attracted such celebrities as Michelle Obama, Beyonce, and Selena Gomez. Since HoopDance and HoopFit classes are taught in 37 states and every major US city, you should have no trouble finding a class near you. And at a burn-rate of 6-700 calories an hour, it is definitely a workout that you should try!
