Last month I went to Los Angeles to meet a bunch of incredible women, who choose to break mommy routines of putting everyone else ahead of themselves. For three wonderful days it was all about us – food, workouts, and tours.
Have you ever heard of hula hoop workouts? Yes, we all have done it when we were kids, but how about now? Since the beginning of summer I have observed my kids trying to master hula hooping and I thought every single time – I used to be good at it. Any time my daughter asked me to teach her hula hoop, I did nothing. Can you see me hula hooping a kiddie hoop?
However, something awesome happened while I was in LA – I fell in love with a workout. I swear: it has never happened to me before! I spent an hour hula hooping and I loved every minute of it. Did it make me sweat? You bet! Did I love it? Absolutely! It was incredible!
Check out this awesome hoop I’ve got: I can store it in my one-bedroom condo and even hide it from kids. I actually lost this package in my condo for few days – that’s how small it is.
Hoopnotica is a state of being; training your body to control the hoop as it revolves around your body. In learning these movements, you create a space in the world that is uniquely yours; a vortex spinning energy created and maintained by your core strength. The stress of the day begins to melt away as you lose the ability to focus on anything other than keeping the hoop up! In doing so, you are strengthening your core and burning up to 600 calories per hour! Would you believe that hooping can burn as much as running a marathon? We didn’t, and you probably won’t be thinking about anything of the sort as you spin and laugh and wonder why you didn’t think of this sooner. Sound like fun? We agree!
A hula hooping class hosted by Hoopnotica’s instructor Pam. She is simply incredible and I walked away from her class (only 1 lesson) with a great sense of accomplishment.
Check me out – I am a pro! Seriously, I can do few more things, but I haven’t really mastered a half of the Hoopnotica DVD. The real class is so much better though, so if you have one in your area, you owe it to yourself to check it out. Go to Hoopnotica’s website and learn more about this incredible and fun workout.
