So, you want hear something sad? I went on a running strike from May 23rd to December 3rd. Yup, I just now started running again and was incredibly excited to see that I still got it. I ran 3 miles Monday & Wednesday and the ONLY reason I stopped was the fact that my iPod was about to die and I wanted to make sure my Nike Plus recorded the run for me. Important stuff man!
Back to my running strike, the reason I stopped running was I was completely and utterly bored with it. I did the back trails, the treadmill, the new music, the morning jogs, the afternoon jogs, the night jogs, 5K’s, Nike Challenges, blah, blah, blah. Boredom comes when you’re doing the SAME thing over again in your exercise routine.
So, I’ve got a really cool, innovative, and downright fun way to stay in shape during the Holiday Season. I mean, you gotta have a way to burn off those extra cookies you inhaled at the Christmas Party, right?!
Put away your running shoes and start hooping your way to a sexy bod with Hoopnotica’s Hoopdance workout. Hoopdance can burn as many calories as running while working the abs and other major muscles. Getting your cardio fix has never been this entertaining or easy with Hoopnotica’s low impact and sexy exercise.
Hoopnotica makes heavier adult sized hoops that easily stay up around the waist, yet provide a challenge for advanced hoopdance moves. When they say “heavy” they mean “heavy”. The first time we tried the hoop out we were literally breathing hard in the first 3 minutes. This ensures full body toning and sculpting.
For those on the go and with limited storage Hoopnotica makes an easy-to-assemble TravelHoop that breaks down into smaller segments. I was a little skeptical about the “hooping” technique, but committed to hooping 3 days a week instead of running. I have seen the same results I saw from running, but the boredom was gone. You’re concentrating on each move and breathing that, before you know it, you’re done with the work out!
Even though I picked up running again (I will always be a runner at heart), I am mixing hoopnotica in along side it.
For new hoopers, starter kits are recommended and are available worldwide for $49.95 from http://www.hoopnotica.com/.
