Hoop it up!
Ok …so you might have heard by now that May is National Physical Fitness and Sports Month. I hope you are not yawning! If you are…GET UP!! This is a great month to re-dedicate yourself to those New Year’s Resolutions you made to lose weight, get active and get in better shape. The recommendations are 60 minutes per day for children and a minimum of 30 minutes a day for adults.
I know I know…. it’s HARD you say. But I recommend you treat it like a game. Hey, if it’s not fun, you probably will find something else to do, right? So here is a fun way to 1) Get fit 2) Enjoy the weather and 3) Have a few laughs.
The humble Hula Hoop has been around for ages, and even though it is fun, it’s serious gear for a fun workout.
My 3 and 4 year old asked me a couple of weeks ago if I could Hula Hoop. They laughed at me and said “No way Daddy”. We don’t believe you”. I got a hold of one and the family could not stop laughing when I showed them how it was done!
Trust me. It is fun and a great workout. Check out this website for a complete workout:
So get up, get out and get fit. You’ll be glad you did.
