Who knew hula hooping would be such a great workout? I received and FXP hula hoop in the mail, after agreeing to give it a try. (not paid, except for receiving the hula hoop) I mean – how hard could it be?
Surprisingly, very hard! The hoop comes in six pieces and a carrying case. It’s very easy to put together and extremely cool that you can carry it everywhere with you and not look like an idiot. The package comes with a guide that shows you how to do basic hooping, glute workouts, thigh workouts, cardio lunghes and a yoga insprired stretch segment. There’s also a dvd with a 15 minute workout on it – one for arms and abs, one for lower body and one for cardio. i’m still working my way through the guide!
When I was a kid I wasn’t very good with a hula hoop. Turns out, I’m still not very good. But laughter has to count as exercise too, right? I bought to my friend Chris’s house – and he tried it too. He sucked – at first. But then just like riding a bike, he got his groove back and we laughed and had a great time.
So … for a price starting at $49.99 you receive a guide, a dvd, a carry kit and a fabulous, well made hula hoop that clicks together so easily a 2nd grader could do it. Would I buy it? You betcha! Wait! There’s also a mobile app and you can become an instructor for only $250. That’s kinda funny – because Chris thought maybe he’d get this kit and teach others!
And yes …. this has been my workout this weekend – and I look forward to trying all the yoga, lunges and ab work.
