After having so much fun skipping, i wanted to try more exercise that was childlike and fun, ergo my choice of the hula hoop. But with a twist...this is weighted (not too much) and therefore is harder to use.
If you want hips like Shakira this is for you. In just a few weeks I have taken an inch off my waist - unbelievable results.
I only use this for a few minutes each day and I can feel the burn for hours after.
And best of all it is fun and simple to do.
This does take a lot of practise, many, like me, can't just do it straight away. So if you lack patience then this probably isn't for you.
It folds down and assembles really quickly and is so sturdy.
The major downside to this is the bruises you get. Always wear a thick tshirt when using this and do not use on bare skin or you get horrendous friction burns. After a while you do get used to this and the bruises stop. I'm making this sound like a torture device, but it really isn't.
It is so much fun to do and because it is isn't to large you can do it in your living room, watching t.v. or listening to music. I cannot wait for the weather to get better so I can do this outside in my garden after my skipping session.
Having used many different brands, makes and sizes of hula hoop, i thought that a review of this particular make of hula hoop would possibly be of some use to many people.
I personally have used this brand of hula hoop for many months now.
I originally purchsed it on recommendation of the local sports shop customer sales person. And I have not regretted purchasing this hula hoop at all.
It is very good value for money , in fact I would go so far as to say it is excellent value for money. PRiced at about thirteen pounds it beats rival brands of hula hoop for value for money. It is of sound quality, and although it is a travel hula hoop, it is stille xtremely sturdy and robust.
WHat makes it a travel hula hoop is that you can fold it down or ease of transporting and / or carrying it around. It folds down to about a half of it's original size, so it is extremely handy in this respect.
Once folded it is very easy to then carry about, or fit in the back of your car. I have even put it on my back when a riding a bike!
You can use this hula hoop for a variety of activities. It is just great for dance lessons, hula hoop exercise classes and clubs. You can use it at home as well, in the garden or even in the living room / bedroom. It is great for improving movement in your hips and strengthening your core muscles.
You can of course just use this hula hoop for plain old fashioned fun and gaes too! ALso great for teaching dogs (or in this gouse small children) to jump through as well.
THe children are always using this hula hoop, I tihnk it is must surely be the most used piece of exercise equipment we own in this house! It is certainly the most fun piece we own!
It even has UV strips on it that glow in UV light. MY friends daughter borrowed for a school disco once too.
It is an extremely durable hula hoop, and of much superior quality than a cheap toy hula hoop.
Other sizes of hoop are also available from the makers.
It is a unisex item - there is no reason that dad's, brother's, uncles or even grandads cant use this item!
Hula hooping is such a fun way of exercising and loosing inches from your hips and tum. It is so fun that I dont even really feel it is exercise, which always helps!
I am extremely happy with this item and I have certainly had my moneys worth of use from this particular hula hoop. It is such a durable item i really can not fault it in anyway at all.
The level of workout and the results obtained from using hula hooping as an exercise depend largely on the person using the hoop. It depends how much time you put into your work out, and what pace you go at. My advice is to start with just a few minutes a day if you are not used to hula hooping, and build up slowly from there.
If you are genuinely serious about taking up hula hooping as either an exerices , sport, or going to hual hoop clubs and competitions, then you are going to need a professional quality hula hoop. and i highly recommend this hoop as versatile, durable and suitable for a whole range o activities.
