It is proven that an hour of hula hooping can help you burn over 400 calories and exercisers can expect similar results from hooping as boot-camp classes, step aerobics, and cardio kickboxing! This awesome fact was found by the American Council of Exercise
through a study conducted on hooping in 2011. Aptly dubbed, “exercise in disguise”, hula hooping provides a total body workout and has major calorie-burning and cardiovascular benefits. But the benefits of hooping go beyond being just physical, hoopers are also said to have relaxing, meditative and sometimes, truly transformational experiences through hooping. The simple act of hooping connects the body, the mind, and the spirit to channel flow, break internal boundaries, and improve creative self-expression.
