Hula hooping has become the latest fitness craze, in part popularized by the Wii Fit fun hula hooping challenge which also doubles as great abdominal activity. But standing in one place swivelling your hips for many minutes on end is far more boring than a run or walk on the treadmill, which is why one hula hoop maker has decided to offer artsy dance classes.
Spiral Hoop Dance is a business that makes unique hula hoops by hand. They are heavier, which makes hula hooping easier while delivering a better workout. But since the best workouts tend to be the ones that are enjoyable for more than just the first 2 minutes, Spiral Hoop Dance has started offering classes and tutorials to make the activity into more of an art form. The classes offered are 2 hours long, and are being held all around the country; every session teaches a different aspect of hula hoop dance from the fundamentals to elaborate tosses and throws sure to both impress and enhance a hooping workout.
Fitness crazes might come and go, but this is one that just might expand into a whole new business empire that capitalizes on our need to be inspired and entertained while we break a sweat.
