As a Health Chick and fitness fanatic, I’m lucky that I really enjoy working out and going to the gym. However I know that for a lot of you, it’s a daily struggle.
The key is finding a workout that you love, and then you’ll find it a million times easier to stick to your workout regime.
So if you’re someone who’s not a fan of hitting the gym, you’re in luck – there are other options out there, which might be just as effective, including one of my new favourites – Powerhooping!
Fitness Hooping is my New Favourite Workout!
I am super excited to announce that as of last week I am officially now qualified as a Powerhoop instructor! I can’t wait to start covering classes, and by the end of the year am hoping to have my own class.
I have already started incorporating Powerhoop into my 1:1 training sessions, simply because the results are astounding, I think everyone needs to try it!
But why do I rate it so much? Can Powerhooping actually give you a decent workout?
Powerhoop is a great way to keep fit and tone your abs. Not only does it get results but it’s FUN as well!
You can literally drop INCHES from your waist in under 6 weeks! A workout that’s fun AND effective? What’s not to love!
SCULPT THAT SIX PACK!
Powerhooping seriously strengthens your core, and—depending on what you do with the hoop—can work the rest of your body, too.
You can even build HIIT circuits involving your hoop, or try alternating 1 minute hooping with strength-building exercises such as push-ups or squats – how’s that for a pretty effective aerobic workout?
THE PROCESS BEHIND THE POWERHOOP
So how does it actually work?
The science is simple – because you need to keep your core tight to whip the weighted hoop around your waist, you’re constantly working your abs and getting a fantastic core workout!
Scared to try something new? Worried you can’t hoop to save your life? It does get easier!
Practice for 5 seconds, then 10 seconds, gradually building it up to 30, 45, 60 seconds – you’ll be a pro in no time!
When people start out they tend to have a ‘dominant’ i.e. stronger side and a ‘non-dominant’ side.
It’s important to practice hooping in both directions, to ensure that six-pack that you WILL achieve looks the same on both sides…
Hopefully I will see you at a class soon!
