Hula Hooping Is Fun and Easy to Learn! Feel Healthy & Happy. Anyone can learn to Hoop Dance!
Hooping with a hula hoop Increases Your Fitness
Help Burn Fat with a Hula Hoop – Hula hooping requires effort from some of the biggest muscles in the body. These muscles require a significant amount of energy, so it forces the body to burn fat stores. New Studies Show That Hula Hooping with a hula hoop Can Burn Up To 100 Calories Every 10 Minutes!
Fitness Level – Hula hooping is a low impact exercise that just about anyone can do to increase their endurance and general fitness level. Even just 10 minutes of hula hooping can provide enough benefit to your body to increase aerobic activity. Hula hooping is so effective as an aerobic workout that an hour of hula hooping can help you burn just as many calories as the same length of time of an intense workout, such as the treadmill.
Tones Your Body – Hula hooping works out several of your body’s core muscles. It strengthens and tones these muscles. Muscles that can be toned by hula hooping include: glutes, thighs, hips, legs, knees and abdomen. In addition, you can twirl a hula hoop with your arms to tone your shoulders and forearms. Hula hooping with heavier hoops can provide additional resistance to tone these muscles faster.
Hooping Increases Concentration & Promotes Relaxation
Concentration – The act of working out with the Hula Hoop is unique among all other exercises. It requires an acute concentration in order to keep the hoop in rotation. It can be mastered by anyone, but it does take dedication and concentration. You simply can’t have your mind elsewhere as you go through the abs and aerobic workout. Honing your concentration in this way can be an asset in other areas of your life as well.
Relaxation – Although it may seem silly for an aerobic exercise to be a part of relaxation, this can be true when using the Hula Hoop. The repetitive motion can be rather soothing. Hula hooping can even be used as a meditative tool. Just as the Hula Hoop can work the muscles in your abs, it can help increase mental discipline as well.
Hooping Promotes Emotional Well-Being
Hula hooping is fun, and it makes exercising less of a chore. To be able to do something fun and see the improvements to your body can liven your spirit and raise your confidence.
A sense of well-being is promoted through hooping. As most of us haven’t thought about a hula hoop in years, we’re pulled from our ‘comfort zone’ just to pick up a hoop. Realizing that we can do this is an amazing feeling. And once your body becomes comfortable with keeping a hoop in motion, you’ll be challenged to stretch yourself even further and learn to do new things with your hula hoop.
Join us for some Hooping at James Meehan Reserve, Dee Why (behind the Surf Life Saving Club) every 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month. 10am – 11am. Hoops and tunes provided.
