I Just Want A Hula Hoop


Members Were Sparked
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.

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!
