I use the hula hoop in my aerobics class, wasn't very good at first, but now I'm a pro. Got the hula hoop so that I can use at home. I love it. I haven't done this since I was a child, oooh the memories and the fun we had as children. i love it because now I can have fun and exercise at the same time.
When i first purchased this health hoop. It gave warning signs about bruising. I did get bruised right above the hips. I got over it. I can hula hoop for over an hour. I do it almost daily anytime anywhere. This is my best friend. This has trimmed my body, shaped my hips. My stomach use to be big. It has gone down tremendously. My clothes are to big. I get compliments. Even had friends purchase this item.
I love this hoop. I've used the metal hoop all my life, as the only heavy hoops give the result. I've decided to try this one. I, honestly, have no idea, how it does it and what it massages, but first 5-10 mins I'm feeling SOOOOOOOOO good. Like the burst of endorphins comes to my brain. I love this hoop. It's much easier to exercise when it's not an effort, but a great pleasure.
