Book Description

1 Jan 2010 Book & DVD
That's right, what goes around comes around - the Hula-Hoop, which burst into faddom fifty years ago, is hot all over again, but this time for enormously beneficial reasons. Christabel Zamor, credited with reviving the Hula-Hoop with her "HoopGirl Workout", is leading what "Time" magazine calls 'the inventive new wave of fitness...that is catching on in health clubs across the country'. "Hooping!" brings the best of "HoopGirl" into a full-colour, fully illustrated book plus a 40-minute instructional DVD. Here's how to get started - where to find and how to use the larger, heavier 'sticky' hoops; stretches and warm-ups; and, what to wear. And then more than 50 step-by-step exercises that focus on the core (abs, back, and butt), upper body, lower body, and overall well-being. The exercises are as fun as they sound - Limbo, Booty Blitz, Float Up, and Wildwest - and each group comes with a recommended playlist of music, plus 'challenges' for going further. "Hooping!": it's not just fitness, but metamorphosis, into a renewed you, with a strong core, joyful attitude, and a glow of self-confidence.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hooptastic 19 Feb 2010
I'm hoola hooked! Straight forward instructions from a beginners point of view. DVD gets you started with the basics. Don't be disappointed as it is difficult to do, its all about getting the knack so immediate progress is slow. Went on a hooping workshop and 2hrs later I can walk whilst hooping and twirl it around my head and all sorts of stuff i never thought I'd be able to do.This book is much the same as the workshop, I just don't think I'd have put in 2hrs practice initially. Great fun and a good laugh and I'm already seeing the desired results round my middle. Fab core workout. Can't wait for better weather so I can practice in the garden. Not sure if my light fittings will last much longer!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth it 9 Nov 2010
By JustSo
Great book. I had already used the look inside the book feature for this item so I knew what to expect. I was not disappointed. The exercises are well explained and the dvd helps as well. If you want to give hoola hooping a go then I'd recommend this book. I did a fair amount of research and feel I ended up with the best book

5.0 out of 5 stars The one and only! 6 Oct 2011
By Rosie
This book has been a great influence on me - I am now a self taught hoop dancer, not perfect but getting there. I recently enquired about lessons in my local area, and even the teacher follows the hoop girl techniques.

Great fun!

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly easy to use 11 Sep 2009
Books describing exercises and how to do them are often a bit of a disappointment, leaving the reader either a) not motivated enough to even begin their own journey or b) confused as how to do the exercises in a meaningful way.

This book breaks that mould. Beautifully illustrated, the descriptions and explanations of how to do moves and tricks are perfect. Take the book outside with you, pick a move and read it. Then do it! Easy.

It also has lots of case studies and little stories in it to help motivate you to start and keep going.

And hooping is such fun!

Be aware though, that I was an experienced hooper before I read the book.

Very clear instructions in the book and easy to follow moves on the DVD. After watching the DVD just twice, I feel I have learnt so much in hooping. It covers all the main moves you see in hoop dancing and now I have bought the author's hoop dance DVD once which I will practice once I've really mastered the basic moves.
