The Hula Hoop was invented in 1957 by Wham-O. They were first made of wood, grasses, vines, bamboo, plastics, and metals. The name came from a Hawaiian dance called the Hula. Ever since then, it has been used for play and exercise. The Hula Hoop can decrease body fat and shed inches due to the fact that you use all the muscles in the midsection to keep the Hula Hoop going. By practicing for 30 minutes a day you can develop a good fat-burning workout. You can also use the Hula Hoop for a nice warm-up or cool-down activity. If you continue this fun activity consistently then you will see results in just a few short weeks.
It’s the perfect way to celebrate the 50th birthday of Hula Hoop.
Can’t keep the hoop on your hips, try the virtual Hula Hoop on the Wii Fit.
