Are You Hula-Hooping Yet?
Believe it or not, the Hula Hoop has gone from being a 1950's fad to the latest fitness trend. One enthusiast started hooping and liked it so much, she started her own company called Hoop Girl. She now has 350 instructors in 12 countries teaching hula-hooping. Hooping can burn up to 600 calories an hour. Fans of hooping say not only does it get you in shape, but it helps you to not take things so seriously. Hula- Hooping started in the late 50's and sold 100 million hoops in just 2 years. Who knew it would still be around! Sounds like a great way to get that waist in shape.
