body beautiful: Hoopnotica

if you are looking for a new, fun way to get your heart pumping, you should try Hoopnotica!

so much more than simply hoola-hooping-- which alone is a great calorie burner -- Hoopnotica incorporates the basics with techniques like corkscrew, floating and halos along with simple dance, making this a challenging total-body workout!

i love that this untraditional workout is challenging enough to get me to work up a sweat, but so fun, i don't even notice (i never knew that something like hoola-hooping on my chest, shoulders and neck would be so much work)! the videos do an excellent job of explaining everything; it made me more excited to move on to the next thing, so i wanted to learn more!

i'm still working on certain things, but the way i see it, i now have a fun way to burn extra calories. even better still: my 8 year-old daughter is learning with me! she of course was already a serious hoola-hooper, but was excited about learning some new moves to show her friends at school.

so if you're looking for a fun way to get your cardio on, definitely check out Hoopnotica! i am having so much fun doing it, i don't even think of it as a workout--of course, my body is telling me otherwise!

watch this demo from the instructional dvd, and don't be intimidated...these ladies have been doing this for a while...
