Have Fun While You Workout : Learn to Hula Hoop

With an adult size hoop, play time and some great tips you can create a workout that is going to have you feeling super fit while having fun. Yes, on body hooping is the most playful way to improve your posture, tone your tummy, lift your mood and make you feel like a circus star!

Here are 5 body parts that you will want to learn to hoop on to get the most out of your workout.


Waist Hooping

What most people think of when they see a hula hoop and the ideal place to start your journey to hoop stardom. Waist hooping for 10-15 minutes per day will not only give you some strong core muscles but it will definitely impress your friends. Start with a few spins and work your way up, soon you will be dancing around the room to your fav tunes. How to Waist Hoop for Total Beginners

Hip Hooping

Dropping the hoop down and working it on your hips is not only going to make you feel like Beyonce it is going to shift that stubborn lower belly pooch. Sassy and speedy, hip hooping takes some practice to pick up the timing but you will nail it in no time.

 Leg Hooping

Ready for killer balance, superhero coordination and a powerful booty? Yes you are. Leg hooping is your best friend but don’t be fooled by this playful move, correct leg hooping is much harder than it looks in the beginning. Unless you have a good teacher 😉

A sweet spot for so many hoopers. It can feel like the popping and locking of hoop dance, but once you get your circular timing on and feel into the connection with your hoop it will be a freestyle float. A strong full body dance that feels like bliss!
