Hula-Hooping: Twisting and Twirling Away The Pounds

New hula-hooping fitness craze hits the Total Woman Gym & Day Spa in Orange County
June 14, 2010 - PRLog -- (Placentia,Brea) Los Angeles – It is a trend, no matter how many times it goes around, keeps coming ‘round and ‘round. The all ‘round workout from those youthful summer days of hula-hooping for fun are back for a core-tightening workout at Total Woman Gym & Day Spa. Hula-hooping classes have become the popular trend to hit fitness classes across the nation and a celebrity favorite workout for:  Marisa Tomei, Beyonce, Liv Tyler and our own First Lady Michelle Obama who was seen hooping away on her White House front lawn months ago!  

“Hooping improves core strength, tones your stomach, arms, thighs and butt, is a low-impact, high-energy workout that can burn approximately 400-600 calories in an hour” says “Like yoga and pilates, it works more than 30 core muscles to sculpt abdominals, builds muscle as well as strengthens them, improves balance, flexibility, and cardiovascular health.”  

Unlike conventional hula hoops, made from hollow plastic and sometimes filled with small ball-bearings for a smoother rotation, the latest hoop is considerably heftier, weighing 1.5 lbs.  It has been reported in, with the extra weight providing added resistance as you twirl, it tones a range of muscles and burns calories more effectively than power-walking or aerobics.  Fans of the Hula-Hooping classes swear it is by far the most effective way to trim waists and thighs, as well as get a washboard stomach.

Hoop-Exercise, Bosu, Bands & Hoop and Beginner Step & Hoop classes are being offered at Total Woman Gym & Day Spa’s Orange County Brea and Placentia locations.  For more information about class schedule, please
