					Benefits of the Hula Hoop
This new fitness craze makes me feel nostalgic! I picked up a hoop a few
years back to shake up my home fitness routine. I did not stick with it
for very long. The hoop was too light and fell down on me so often, that
I did not get much out of it.
Fortunately, these days they are making hoops big enough for adults,
weighing in at about 5lbs. So they stay up long enough to sweat!
The Hula hoop or "hooping" craze hasn't hit Canada as hard as it has
invaded the UK and L.A fitness scene. I am sure it will though! This
activity is fun and has many advantages.
