This Sparked Me!

On the days when you're too busy/tired/stressed to get in a full workout, spin a hula hoop for 10 minutes! It's fun, works the whole core, and you feel silly enough that the stress and fatigue melt away.

MORE INFORMATION:
I've also used my hula hoop when I'm cold---warms me up in no time!

    I LOVE my Hula Hoop too!
I have been using mine for 4 years & YES it really works your core muscles.

    I also can't get a hula hoop going longer than a few seconds. Never could. I think I'm hip-impaired, but yes this is a wonderful idea.

    I could never keep a hula hoop going for 30 seconds let alone 10 minutes, even when I was young! LOL!
