Did anyone else get a power hoop for Christmas?

I've fancied hula hooping and the DCs have given me a weighted hoop for Christmas.

Anyone else want to do a weight loss/fitness thread and trade tracks to hoop to etc?

I'll need to get my hoop out to see but I'm sure I do the opposite vodka.

Still pretty bruised but five days in and my hoop style is improving. Able to hoop around my hips (ish).

Can I admit now that I still haven't ventured into the back of the cupboard to dig out my hoop?
I promise I will join you in the new year.

get it out now! I am trying to do a wee bit each day so I can be a bit better at it by the time I get back to classes in January.

I am hoping it makes a difference - am using the 5lb powerhoop so its fairly heavy

I really want a 5lb one. I don't think mine is even 3lbs. I'll order one in a couple of weeks once I've got back into the swing of things.

O-Kay, yeah! Just did 7 min warm up (the beautiful DC girl warm up on YouTube) then 14 min hoop boogie. Feeling all glowy now.

I took yesterday off but I think one day out hasn't been a bad thing.

Disclaimer, this thread is is from last Christmas but I am bumping it, because I've heard a lot of good things about exercising with a weighted hoop and want to know if it's all true! grin

To people who were on this thread, how did you get on with it?

And to new people, have you got one and what do you think?! smile

Final bump then I will admit defeat!

smile I have a hoop although no idea what a power hoop is and i used to use a dvd to exercise with.

This thread has made me think about getting it out from behind the heap of rubbish in the bedroom

Hello!!

I am pretty sure a power hoop is just a brand name for a regular weighted hoop. I've ordered one (just a generic one from amazon) and it's going to be delivered tomorrow, I am sooo excited!

I don't have any room in the house big enough though so I'm going to have to do it outside, where I am overlooked but oh we'll, will do it under cover of darkness! wink

I haven't found a single negative review yet, I can't wait to see if it works for me. You should definitely get yours back out!!

I do the odd bit of hooping in front of the tv! As I do a lot of combat and spin classes I don't do it on a daily basis but I whip it out of the downstairs loo three or four times a week and have a little whirl for ten or 15 mins.

I was hilariously bad the first time I tried it but within ten mins of watching a YouTube tutorial I was hooping like a pro

I did some this morning and I have to say it didn't feel like it was very heavy at all... Or even see how it could have any effect on my waistline?!

Of course I couldn't admit this to DH who thinks my new purchase is hilarious and I can't let him know it doesn't work haha!! How long til you saw some results?!

risingsunshine Sat 11-Jan-14 12:12:01

It's a 3lb by the way.

Hmm, none of this fabled bruising either! hmm grin
