That's right, what goes around comes around - the Hula-Hoop, which burst into faddom 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 the country'. "Hooping!" brings the best of "HoopGirl" into a full-colour, 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, and butt), upper body, lower body, and overall well-being. The exercises are as fun as they sound - Limbo, Booty Blitz, Float Up, and 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.
