Happy Hooping

hoopnotica.jpgI used to be a gym and swim rat, but traditional exercise just doesn’t do it for me these days. I need creative movement, and while I used to attribute my inability to hula hoop to stiff hips, I now know better: it’s all physics, and hooping makes for a fun, unexpected workout. The trick is that Hoopnotica’s grown up and kid hoops are slightly heavier and larger, actually making it easier to hoop - since smaller, more controlled revolutions are key - then incorporate tricks into your newfound talent. The Travel Hoop is particularly brilliant; the six segments easily snap together or collapse for toting and storage. And best of all, whether I’m simply hula hooping, or attempting to learn from the hoopdancing DVDs, I can't help but have a good time.
