Looking for a workout that is out of the ordinary? If you are tired of the same old boring cardio routine, then hoopnotica is what you have been looking for! Who didn't love hula hooping as a kid? Well, even if you didn't, I promise this workout is fun.
It is actually a little easier to use than a traditional hula hoop. It's bigger, for a start, and a little heavier, which makes it a little easier to keep on your hips or around your waist (in my opinion, anyway). This means you can not only keep going for longer, but you also wont get discouraged!
Believe me though, this is far more than just a glorified hula hoop! The video will walk you through the steps of hooping on your waist, then your hips (really quite different), and even up and down your arms. Once you become more advanced, there are actual routines you can do, and workouts burn 400-600 calories an hour!
I work from home and this has been a fun cardio break in the middle of the day, and it takes up a lot less room than a treadmill. Exercise can sometimes feel like a chore, but with hooping it becomes more like a fun pastime.
Whether you are looking for a unique gift or a fun workout to get you through the holidays, this is a great option.
