O.K. so I took the plunge after watching several Hula (hoola) hoop videos online.
I am now down to 155lbs and have working my butt off with my cheap $5.00 hula hoop, 5 pound wrist weights and my fun trampoline.
Now it is time to reward my 4 pound weight loss with a new support tool!
I am purchasing from Amazon a professional weighted hula hoop and instructional hoop dance dvd!
Here are the two items I personally just bought-
In this inventive exercise DVD you get cardiovascular fitness, strengthening and energizing, and you'll burn lots of calories once you get the technique of Hooping down. This DVD is for beginners through advanced.The hoops used are professional weighted hoops, wrapped in friction tape which helps it to stick to your hips!
Christabel Zamor is attractive and dynamic, the video includes:
- How to Hoop
- Marching in Place
- Dance Party
- You'll also get a "Cool Down" and a fabulous performance where Christabel shows us the 101 things one can do dancing with a hoop.
If you haven't done this before you'll start to feel the burn on "the inch you can pinch" around your waist in the "How to Hoop" section, and as the DVD progresses, you can almost feel your midriff toning as you dance. This is a superb exercise for your torso and especially your waist and hips, but you'll also get results for your shoulders, legs and arms.
Don't worry if you feel a little clumsy at first while you try to rotate the hoop and move your feet at the same time. With a little practice, you'll get the hang of it. The "Dance Party" moves are terrific, and once learned you can do them to your favorite up-tempo music and you'll have a blast while you burn up all those calories.
