After gaining something of a paunch over Christmas (or at least increasing the paunch I already had!), I heard this DVD being plugged on the radio, and decided to leap onto this latest bandwagon while it's still in its infancy!
They're saying that Hula Hooping is the new craze that's already swept the States, and will soon take the UK by storm. After shelling out for my copy of the DVD (and, of course, the all important hoop), I was initially concerned by my apparent inability to keep the hoop going for more than one revolution of my sadly increasing waistband. After persevering for a short time though, I was in my flow, and ready to begin the workout.
The DVD is great. Warm and entertaining like the radio station from which it was spawned, but, more importantly, really effective.
I've obviously only been doing the workout for less than two weeks, but I genuinely feel that I already look and feel better for it. If you're looking for something in the way of a new fitness routine, I couldn't recommend Hulaerobics highly enough... I've gone 'hoopy' about it!
