Publisher Comments:

Imagine an exercise that works every major and minor muscle group, burns 600 calories an hour, builds balance and flexibility, requires no investment beyond $25 to $35, and makes you feel exuberant, delightful, sassy, and sexy. And is so much more like play than work that you want to keep doing it.

That's right, what goes around comes around--the Hula-Hoop, which burst into fad-dom fifty years ago, is hot all over again, but this time for enormously beneficial reasons. Christabel Zamor, credited with reviving the Hula-Hoop with her HoopGirl Workout, is leading what Time magazine calls "the inventive new wave of fitness...that is catching on in health clubs across America." Hooping brings the best of HoopGirl into a full-color, fully illustrated book plus a 40-minute instructional DVD. Here's how to get started--where to find and how to use the larger, heavier "sticky" hoops; stretches and warm-ups; and what to wear. And then more than 50 step-by-step exercises that focus on the core (abs, back, butt), upper body, lower body, and overall well-being. The exercises are as fun as they sound--Limbo, Booty Blitz, Float Up, Wildwest--and each group comes with a recommended playlist of music, plus "challenges" for going further.

Hooping!: it's not just fitness, but metamorphosis, into a renewed you, with a strong core, joyful attitude, and a glow of self-confidence.

Synopsis:

Zamor is credited with reviving the Hula-Hoop with her HoopGirl workout. "Hooping!" brings the best of these workouts into a full-color, fully illustrated book plus a 40-minute instructional DVD.

Synopsis:

Hooping is transformational, a revolutionary program of 50 exciting moves that make you feel fit, centered, sassy, and sexy. Hooping works every muscle group, improves flexibility and coordination, boosts energy levels, and builds strength, agility and endurance.

Explained in detail and illustrated with step-by-step full-color photographs, these moves combine the sheer joy of childhood play with results you can see and feel. Practice them individually, then weave them into hoopdancing routines. It's not just fitness, but metamorphosis, creating a renewed you, with a strong core, joyful attitude, and a glow of self-confidence.

Includes a 50-minute instructional DVD.

I LOVE THIS FABULOUS hoop fitness program - it's FUN FUN FUN - so I actually do it. I read the book from cover to cover, couldn't put it down. The instructions in it and the included DVD are crystal CLEAR! I also ordered a beautiful hoop from Hoopgirl.com...not at all like your Momma's hoop - it just floats around my body! And the life philosophy throughout the book is so warm and upbeat. I ordered several additional books for my girlfriends - can't wait for us all to start hooping together!
