    A lady at my SW group uses one, and despite doing loads of other exercise, she says that the hoop has the biggest impact of anything on toning her tummy area.

    I've just quit a gym where the lady offered to teach me to hula hoop - never took her up on the offer and now I've left (using my work gym which is way cheaper). Daft really!

    You've just reminded me - I need to get one

    A forum I go on (for twin mums) has loads that have just got into "hooping" (hope thats not slang for something rude!). Seemingly the adult weighted ones are easier than the kids but can leave you bruised!!

    I know it's not quite the same but on the WII fit they have the hoola hoop thing where u have to stand on the balance board. This reminded me that when I did the hoop challenge it left me out of breath! May try this again.

    I'd love to get one of these.. But I'm scared I'm too big for them! I'm worried I'd get stuck! Lol. My waist is about 45" :(

    Mine arrived today yaay! It is classed as a medium and has a 40" diameter. It would be massive on you, Gemmy, so no worries.

    It is harder than it looks lol. I guess I am going to get fit bending down to pick it up :p My top tip is to wear furry boots as it doesn't half whack you on the shins on the way down :eek:

    I think I need to learn some technique and get a lot of practice. Looks fun though! :D

    i go powerhoop classes a few times a week at the local gym, the classes are great, as you aren't just hooping, you are doing excercises with the hoop also, lifting the hoop (arm excercises) squats, lunges etc, and walking and racing each other hooping. Its so much fun!!!!

    personally i find the heaviest hoop the easiest, as i find the lighter the hoop the easier it falls lol.
