REASON NUMBER ONE: Sitting Erases Your Hard Work – by Leigh Little

Get ready for these statistics!

Let’s assume you do a good paced run for an hour or a good aerobic hoop fitness workout. For every hour that you sit the rest of the day, you erase 8% of the benefit of your run.So let’s assume you have a desk job where you may find yourself sitting a good portion of the day.Over the course of a day, we’re going to assume a half hour commute each way, a minimum of 8 hours sitting during your workday and an hour sitting during your lunch.We’re not going to even take into account night time sitting.Given this scenario of 10 hours of sitting, you’ve just erased 80% of the benefit of your workout.

September 29, 2019 4 min read

Lately more and more hoop stores and hooping individuals have been using the adjective “collapsible” to describe a feature of their product. Unfortunately most of these hoops are clearly not collapsible.

What is a collapsible hoop? How is collapsible best defined in relation to a hula hoop? It is clear that meaning of “foldable” is the closest synonym for “collapsible”.

This definition becomes clear when we examine a number of different types of hoops.

How Many Calories Can You Burn Waist Hooping?

How many calories can you REALLY burn waist hooping? Today we are going to show you 7 ways to burn more calories hooping and take your waist hooping to the next level.

There’s no doubt that hooping burns calories – The American Council on Exercise conducted a study to determine cardio and calorie burning effects of hooping. The study used 16 women between the ages of 16 and 59, all of whom were intermediate to advanced level hoopers (read the study here). The average calorie burn for this group in a 30 minute session was 210.

Think 210 calories won’t produce results? If you hooped every day for half an hour that’s the equivalent of 21 pounds lost!

How to Beat Halloween Weight Gain

September 29, 2019 4 min read

Which holiday really kicks off weight gain and heart disease? Hint, its right around the corner and on every shelf in the store right now.

Halloween is a sneaky, sneaky time of year. It’s scary because it’s the REAL holiday that kicks off an almost three month long weight gain campaign for many people. We often think of weight gain starting around Thanksgiving and continuing on past Christmas, hence the New Years Resolution popularity. But October is particularly tricky, not only because most people don’t equate it with a big feast like Thanksgiving, but also because of the TYPE of “food” that it’s centered around, sugar.

ADD TIME AND INTENSITY TO YOUR PRACTICE without even realizing it. And become a hoop master in the process!

Growing up in rhythmic gymnastics, mastery of skills was critical. If you’ve never seen Rhythmic gymnastics (look for it in the summer 2016 Olympic Games), it involves dance movements with the rope, ribbon, ball, clubs, and yes, hoop! Ironically the hoop was one of my least favorite and most difficult events as a child. Mainly because a standard size of hoop was required per age group and I was so tiny that the hoop came up to my collarbone. I’ll never forget one of the mastery skills had me jumping OVER the hoop while it was rolling on the floor. NOT easy. To this day, my parents giggle that the piece of equipment that I came back to as an adult was the hoop.
