I love trying new things to stay fit. When a friend suggested hula-hooping I laughed and then she told me to try it. After 15 minutes of me struggling to keep the hoop up I wasn’t laughing anymore. Hula-hooping takes skill. It takes patience. It most certainly takes practice. The good news is once I got back into the groove I can easily pick up my hoop and get a fun workout in for an hour. The best part is my four-year-old hoops with me. She just thinks we are playing. I’m now going to show you guys a video of Karli Dean, the owner of Miss Fly Hips & Hoops. She will be able to show you how cool hula-hooping can be.
Okay, wipe up that drool and gather yourselves. I know that this video is awesome. I know you now want to grab a hoop and try to twirl it on your foot while standing on your head. Let me offer a few suggestions. When I first started to get into hula-hooping I started off with a cheap hoop from Target. While it does work in theory, I would suggest getting a real hoop. Miss Fly Hoops obviously knows what she’s doing. You can get a beginner’s hoop which is larger and heavier. That makes it less work for you to keep the hoop up. When you start getting better you can graduate to a smaller, lighter hoop. These will spin a lot faster.
I noticed a huge difference in the hoop I got from Miss Fly Hoops, and the cheap on I got at the store. I found it was much easier to do trick and keep the hoop up. I think it’s important to get the right size as well. You can check out the sizing, or send Karlie a message if you have any questions. She’s super nice!You can find more of her videos on her YouTube channel right HERE.
