I was never good at hula hooping. Enjoy!

As a kid I was pretty good at the hula hoop but the last time I tried it I just could not keep it up. My Dad still has the one we used as kids. I will have to give it a try next time I am over there.

Great idea for exercise! I will be looking for a weighted one.

I have back issues so I have had to stop hula hooping. I did have a weighted one. I would put music on and dance inside the hoop (step forward, step back, step right, step left). I would also "gallop" in place. Good luck with your hoop.

Got my weighted one earlier this month. Have been playing with it. I say playing because it is so much fun, it doesn't seem like a workout while you are doing it. But the next day I can tell I got a workout!

The new hoops are handmade of PVC pipe and duct tape. I picked u a beautiful one up at a craft fair for $30.00. It's adult sized and works perfectly. The cheap ones are too light, I don't know anyone who can get those to work.

Success is a work in progress.

I love to hula hoop and use a 3lb hoop which really works the core. I use it when I am watching my favourite show and the hour flies by.

A great workout for your whole body. We have one but I always forget about it. It's fun on Wii, too. Gotta pull that puppy out and get hooping!! Thanks for the reminder.

I don't know how to keep it spinning on my waist.

I just don't know how to do it! But for ppl who know, I'm sure it's fun!

I wish I knew how to do it!

I think hula hooping is such a fun way to burn calories and work out. It's the workout i do when i don't want to do anything because it's fun!
