Hula hoop exercise benefits
Effective aerobic workout
Hooping for just 30 minutes a day can burn up to 165 calories, raise your heart rate and target your legs, buttocks and waist. That’s a full body burner!
Besides from the fact that it’s hard not to crack a smile while wiggling your hips, hula hooping gets your endorphins flowing leading to that happy high we all so crave. Hooping can also be introduced into your routine as an act of mindfulness and meditation.
The workout can be done anywhere. From a quick session on a lunch break by the desk, to outdoors in the fresh air, the lightweight hoop is easily transported to the workout area best suited to you.
Accessible to all ages
Hooping for your fitness is achievable no matter how old you are. This workout is family friendly. Get all the girls in your family involved in a hoopathon this International Women’s Day!
