This new fitness craze makes me feel nostalgic! I picked up a hoop a few years back to shake up my home fitness routine. I did not stick with it for very long. The hoop was too light and fell down on me so often, that I did not get much out of it.
Fortunately, these days they are making hoops big enough for adults, weighing in at about 5lbs. So they stay up long enough to sweat!
The Hula hoop or "hooping" craze hasn't hit Canada as hard as it has invaded the UK and L.A fitness scene. I am sure it will though! This activity is fun and has many advantages.
Benefits Of Hula Hooping
-It is a great warm up to start a home routine or group class.
-Hula hooping targets the abs, back, hips and surprisingly the legs from bracing yourself.
-Hula Hoops are inexpensive and easy to store.
-Anybody can try hula hooping. It's easy on the joints and can be made harder or easy, based on your fitness level.
-Different classes can be based around the hoop. Circus style, which involves multiple hoops and belly dancing. It's quite challenging to dance and hoop. A great workout!
-An excellent activity to blast some music to while throwing in some punches.
-An awesome cardiovascular workout.
-This is an exercise you can do with your kids.
Hula hoops are no longer just a kids toy! Hooping is a fantastic fitness alternative that everybody should try!
