This month I’m trying on a fun twist to my fitness routine: hula-hooping 🙂 According to this site hooping is not just a fun way to relieve stress, it also improves your balance and posture, increases coordination and improves flexibility. But wait! There’s more! Hula-hooping also relieves back pain, tones your arms, waist, thighs and … dan,dan, daaaaaan – your derriere.
Oh my, please count me in! 🙂
I like that it’s an exercise that doesn’t require much space, is inexpensive and is something you can do while watching TV. (There are actually a lot of exercises that you can do while watching TV, but hooping is probably the most fun!)
Let’s see, right now I can only do 2-3 full rotations before the hoop is down by my feet! 😀 But this nice tutorial should help me along just fine.
Are there any of you out there who know how to hula-hoop? How long did it take for you to become decent at it?
