Looking for a good and convenient workout you can do at home? Try hula hooping. Once a huge fad in the fifties, hula hooping doesnt just help trim up your waist, it can also work your legs and behind as well.

Hula hooping is an inexpensive activity the whole family can do at home. Not only that - it is a lot of fun.  I used to teach a workout class that incorporated hulu hooping and as we all struggled to get it going, we had a lot of laughs. Once we started to get it, we could certainly feel it in our waist, sides, low back and even our and legs.

The hula hoop gained international popularity in the late 1950s, when it was successfully marketed by the Wham-O toy company. By 1958 hula hooping became a national fad with 100 million hula hoops sold in two years. Today, with electronics and other tech, many of our kids may never have even tried a hula hoop, so I say it is time to change that. Hula hooping is a great, fun family activity that will give you a better workout than you would think. 

Check out the reasons below to see why hula hooping might be the perfect workout for you.
