You’re Never Too Old for A Hula Hoop!

Oh, no, it’s not JUST for kids anymore. Pre show ring side entertainment

I did it! I procured  a hula hoop! I walked into the local thrift store and walked over to the prettiest, biggest, brightest, most sturdy hula hoop I have ever seen in my life. It was almost like the movies. The AC was blowing in my hair, there was a glow on my silhouette  with each step I took. As quickly as that happened I snapped out of the dream and tuck my $5 exercise equipment into my cart.  Yes friends, I am the proud, 30+ year old, owner of a bo·na fide adult hula hoop!

Hula hooping is a never-ending relationship with play, movement, designed to
bring fun, play, meditation, creativity, and a smiling face to EVERY body, no matter your size, shape, age, or fitness level- SuperHopper

When I start new things, I like finding other people that some what resembles me to get advice from. This lady impressed me. You can actually see her waist coming along nicely.

and this one….. I found it great for learning techniques and strategies for using my hoop. The “Unleash The hips!” 

Hula hooping can provide similar results as other types of aerobic activities such as dancing — including salsa, hula, belly and swing dancing. An average woman can burn about 165 calories in 30 minutes of hula hooping, and an average man can burn about 200 calories in 30 minutes of hula hooping. The plan is to hoop at least 3 days a week . Now that my son is back in school I have to figure out something to replace it. I also figured out ways to recycle it when I wear it out.

You heard it hear! Hula Hoop and tule

As with anything new, please check with your doctor before using any kind of hula hoop if you have medical concerns, especially a history of back problems. And as with any physical activity, stop hula hooping and consult your doctor if you develop pain or other symptoms.

It think it will work. Afterall, Kelly Osburne and FLOTUS can’t be wrong. Oh gosh, I’m still stoked on my saings. The one I have is listedfor over 30 dollars. By checking out the thrift store I saved over 90% for the same  EXACT item. Stop sleeping on the 2nd hand stores ya’ll!
