It most likely comes as no surprise I love me some hula hoop.
- It’s PLAY.
- It’s childish.
- It’s exercise without the *work* part of working out.
- You cant hoop incorrectly/wrong if youre laughing and enjoying.
I dont talk much about my hoop-LOVE here because Im definitely no role-model/expert o’the hoop.
Even after a few years, Im still an awkward hooper (translation: Ive not progressed beyond the video below), yet my herky-jerky moves are definitely eclipsed by the FUN I’m having.
…by the fun everyone has when they hoop with me.
The child loves being the expert & gleefully shouts directions & tips to me whilst I wriggle.
The husband works his core as he laughs *at* me getting my creative cardio on.
And they *both* get to show off (the Tornado somewhat more successfully) when it’s their turn to hoop it up.
(lest you think Im spasming in the photo above it is almost as good a core-workout to merely do the hooping motion. seriously. pull the shades. blast some tunes and try it!)
Hooping is fun.
Since the day Mara shared hooping changed the way she felt about her body and, more specifically, her hips hoops have been one of my GO-TO gifts for friends and family.
Who doesnt need more laughter, levity, self-love & HIP-ADORATION in her life (not to mention the clothes. I covet me the hooping clothes, but I digress…)?
Join me in celebrating World Hoop Day today? (Im so so so throwing a party next year.)
Whether you party solo or with your peeps.
Get out. Grab you a circle. And GO!
When was the last time YOU hula-hooped?
