#100happydays Day 82 Cross training with a hula-hoop!

So the other day we were running through Walmart looking for bug spray when we passed a bin of hula-hoops, on sale no less.

Laughing we selected two of them. A couple of years ago we went to a Hula-hoop exercise class called Hulabics. What a hoot! Trying to get the ring to circle around us was one thing but then while ”hooping”, trying to walk & run, kick a ball, play catch and jump about. We cracked right up in the class. Apparently I do a great chicken walk while “hooping”. It was a good thing it was a small class.

It really is a lot of fun, the look on my face is just concentration to keep the hoop moving!

It looks a little silly, an adult playing with a hula-hoop but the games we played as children actually will benefit us as adults. Hula-hooping has many benefits. It is aerobic, it builds core strength, flexibility and balance, stamina and concentration oh yea, and it’s fun, all of which we all can use more of.

We spent $4.00 on our hoops, probably the cheapest piece of exercise equipment we will ever own.
