Get a Hula Hoop. Use it to have some fun and get a little exercise. There are classes and videos and all sorts of suggested uses for a Hula Hoop. Even Marisa Tomei has gotten in on the action with her own video and hoopBody Kit.
I’ve just ordered a weighted hoop (2 lbs); they say they’re easier to operate and I would guess allow for a better workout. Either way, I intend to use mine as a vehicle for laughter and to work my core. Remember, my Ab Challenge? Maybe even one day I’ll try a Hooping class but for now it’ll be a fun way to break up my core workout. A few crunches here, a few turns of the hoop there. Get where I’m comin’ from?
For inspiration have a look at this video. It’s called April Curvy Hooping. While you might think this sister could use a little more core work she’s clearly fitter than she looks and I think one hot Hooper! Seriously…take a second to click on the link.
(And yes, the Hula Hoop will be making an appearance at one of my Fitness Walk workouts one day soon…)
Make me proud! See you back here on Monday…
