Hoopnotica wants to help fulfill your hoop dreams.

Hoop, here it is!

Check out this timely hip-swivelin’ press release from the PR rep for Hoopnotica:

HOOP OFF THE HOLIDAYS

1 slice of fruitcake – 340 calories
1 serving of egg nog – 380 calories
1 serving of turkey with stuffing – 725 calories

The holiday season can be stressful. The festivities, food and drink can wreck our waistline, adding more than a few extra pounds beneath those fuzzy holiday-themed sweaters. The intense pressure of attending parties with co-workers and spending time with family can wreak havoc on our stress level.

This season, give the gift that keeps on giving, er, spinning – Hoopnotica!

The American Council on Exercise announced in a recent study that hooping burns an average of 420 calories an hour, comparing it to the intense workout experienced in a cardio kickboxing class. But hooping is better. Why, you ask? Because it is FUN.

Hoopnotica is a state of being; training your body to control the hoop as it revolves around your body. In learning these movements, you create a space in the world that is uniquely yours; a vortex of spinning energy created and maintained by your core strength. Many hoopers call it their “Moving Meditation” for its calming, centering effects.

Hoopnotica offers a “Travel Hoop” which breaks apart into six segments for ease of portability and storage (easy to wrap for under the tree!). Paired with our award winning Level 1 DVD and affordably priced at just $49.99, the Hoopnotica Starter Kit makes the perfect gift for any member of your family.

A 10% off code is available for Keeping Fit blog readers!
