“ Brand: Echo / Type: Fitness Equipment „
One of the things I have been meaning to get for a while is a hula hoop, to see if I can still hula hoop and also because I've heard they're quite good at keeping you fit. I usually go running but find its a bit dismal in the winter so wanted something to supplement it when it was just too wet and cold to get out.
I saw this one for about a tenner and because it just looked nice and simple without any fancy gadgetry bits decided it was worth a go. I think the RRP is closer to the thirty pound mark so I felt I got a bit of a bargain.
My hula hoop is in two shades of green but it is also available in brown and cream.
The hula hoop comes boxed and when I open it up the hoop is in several pieces. Not as bad as it seems, because all I had to do was clip the pieces together in light then dark green combination. Once assembled, it is nice and sturdy and the bits show no signs of coming apart. It's about 95cm in diameter which is big enough so that I can do fancy tricks but not so big that it becomes unwieldy. It is heavy without being too heavy but definitely heavy enough so that I have to do some work to get it moving, which was the idea behind buying it.
The hula hoop is easy to use, and does as much or as I am capable which isn't a lot!
A fun way to keep fit. This is a good quality product which, since Little Miss has got hold of it, has taken a bit of a battering both inside and outside the house. If it needs a clean I just wipe it with a damp cloth but other than that it requires no maintenance.
I am still pretty rubbish at the whole thing but getting better and after having a go with it I do feel my muscles have been worked without it actually feeling that I have worked too hard- always a bonus.
