No doubt you are madly busy like the rest of the world.
No doubt you are always looking for the best value.
It is almost a guarantee that you are wanting to look great, improve your fitness and lose some weight.
However, being busy and always being on the hunt for great value can make these goals seem elusive.
This is the magic of hooping...
You look down and see a perfectly flat stomach, wearing those great looking new shorts that show off your lean legs.
You stride happily down the street on your way to work/school or heading out to meet up with friends and you feel great. You know that you look good and you love it.
Not all of us have the luxury of a lot of money and a lot of time.
Some of us have one or the other, however most of us have neither, this is why I have decided to dedicate this site to something that can help you lose weight, get fit, look great and spend more time enjoying life instead.
Hula hooping is a one stop shop, and here is why it is just for you:
1. Hula hooping is one of the cheapest ways you can possibly get fit.
For the price of a cheap meal out at a cheap restaurant you can get started. Sure there are different ranges of models, however you can get started for a minimal cost and that is a huge blessing to a lot of us. Compare the costs of getting in your car, driving to a place to workout, paying a huge monthly fee and then coming all the way home again!
2. Exercising with hoops is something that is amazing for those of us with limited space.
Are you a student living in a small room packed with clothes, books, computers etc? Hooping is perfect for you. There are even hoops that are fully collapsable - how is that for packing a lot into a little? If you live with others, you know how hard it is to find storage space for even the smallest items in your house, why not solve that problem by taking up hooping for weight loss. Treadmills, exercise bikes and home gyms are great if you have a huge space and a blank check, but that is not the position everyone is in.
3. Hooping is something that you will grow to absolutely love.
You know how addictive certain things are, things like cellphone games, Facebook, certain desserts etc... Hooping is what we would call a beautiful addiction! Hooping is one of those things that will give you a real sense of satisfaction and fun, with the huge benefit of building a lean, fit body and a fun skill to show off.
To be honest, it doesn’t really matter what you came here for, we can help with any of your questions and guide you through the process step by step.
Here we provide a huge range of content on different aspects of hooping, the best products out there (we have tried 99% of the hoops on the market and we know which ones suck!), guides on how you can increase your fitness and of course lose body fat.
Seeing as you are already here, I will explain exactly why hula hooping is one of the best methods of losing body fat and keeping fit there is.
Benefits of Hula Hooping For Weight Loss and Fitness
First of all, is something kind of obvious.
When you sign up to a gym that is 20 minutes drive away, you are far less likely to go - that is just human nature. Also when you commit to spending that money, it only hurts at the time, after that, you just look at it as a sunk cost and don’t feel so bad about it (think about when you last made a big purchase and how much you thought about it compared to now!).
This is one of the biggest benefits of hula hooping - you are always ready to get some exercise in.
No more having to find your exercise shoes, send your workout clothes through a 15 minute cycle, put on some deodorant and navigate rush hour traffic just to do some exercise.
The majority of our readers love nothing more than just grabbing the hoop and getting in a workout right then and there - bare feet on the carpet, tile floor or outside. How is that for convenient? This is one of the big secrets of weight loss and improving your fitness - not worrying so much about the details, just being able to do a little bit each day and trusting the process.
Second is the cost.
Seriously, with the state of things at the moment, who has thousands of dollars to spend on flash gym equipment or expensive memberships to cold, sterile places of exercise? Most of our readers have said that cost, fun and availability are the three biggest reasons they hoop to keep fit and lose excess body fat. If you have any doubts at all that hula hooping will sculpt your body into a sexy, slim figure - check out some of the pics around the site. Dancers have incredible bodies, and hula is one of the fastest growing, most effective forms of fitness dance worldwide.
With the cost of hooping being so affordable for pretty much anybody, this gives you more time and money to actually enjoy life, not always worrying about how many years of automatic payments of $24.99 are left every time you get paid! We believe life is to be enjoyed, not a battle to force your way through, which leads us on to the next point...
Third is the fun side.
There is no doubt that some people enjoy running, cycling, lifting weights etc, but think about this: what do you do for fun?
If you are thinking that you would love to do a form of exercise that is fun, my friend, you have picked the right place! After a couple of wines, there is nothing more fun than having a bit of a dance. A lot of guys will claim they don’t like dancing, but after a couple of drinks, they love it. Dancing is something that most cultures do for fun, whether it is a third world country in Africa or ballroom dancing in London. Dance is fun, although it is rather hard to keep fit just dancing about in your room.
This is where hula hooping really shows off. Once you have a hoop and you have started practicing, you have to keep moving to keep hooping (obviously), this is amazing for your fitness. Unlike running on a treadmill or cross trainer, hooping is actually really, really fun, and you don’t want to stop. It is like a game, except that you are doing yourself a huge benefit by playing!
Where To From Here?
Obviously you will need a hoop, some guidance and some ideas. On this site, we can give you everything you need to get started right away.
One thing that I like to ask our readers sometimes is to think about what you will be doing in 3 months?
- Where will you be?
- What will you be doing?
- What will you look like?
- How will your fitness be?
- What will you read?
- Etc etc
Then think about this: in 3 months time, the time will have passed anyway, so what will you do in the next 3 months to get you to where you really want to be?
If you are thinking seriously about losing some body fat, getting fit, creating an incredible physique and having a whole lot of fun at the same time, I have got something just for you.
