When my son was in elementary school, I dropped him off every morning at latchkey. We used to get there early, before the teachers, so we could sneak in and hula hoop. It’s one of our happiest memories…I think we hula hooped every school day for about four years straight!
Hula hooping is still a favorite activity of mine, especially with the Cardio Core & More Fitness Hoop I was sent to test. This isn’t your typical hula hoop…it’s a three-pound weighted hoop that is a super fun workout. It comes with a DVD and an illustrated exercise guide.
Hula hooping in general is terrific exercise, but a weighted hoop really targets your tummy. The Cardio Core and More Fitness Hoop isn’t just weighted – you put it together so you can make the hoop as easy or as tough as you want, customizing your workout level. There are three different workouts you can do just by varying the weighted and non-weighted sections of the hoop. All together, you can burn just as many calories as you would doing aerobics or running, but c’mon…hula hooping is definitely more fun!
I put my hoop right by my front door and whenever I get a chance I run outside with it, act like a kid, and burn a bunch of calories while strengthening my core. My kids are all over the Cardio Core Fitness Hoop too – my son may be 23 years old now, but he still loves to hula hoop!
You can find the Cardio,Core & More Fitness Hoop at stores like Target, Kohl’s, and Amazon. Pick one up to get beach body ready while having all kinds of fun! – Lisa
