The Lorna Jane team loves fithoop! Published on Move Nourish Believe Blog on 10 December 2012 here’s what they had to say:

When it comes to new and exciting ways to move our bodies, nothing comes close to the wonders of the fithoop. What is fithoop? Well, it’s kind of like a hula hoop but heightened for a maximum fitness effect. This is no ordinary childhood hula hoop; the fithoop is actually weighted with 1.2 – 1.5kg, helping to melt those calories away in record time. We received one in the office and it’s impossible for someone to walk past without having a turn… and boy do you work up a sweat!

Feels like summer is here already! Have you taken your workout outdoors or tried any new exercises yet?

 Madison Magazine just published their five favourite summer workouts – with fithoop coming in at number 1!

 Tap your inner child and try using a Fithoop, Australia’s first weighted hula hoop. The 1.2kg and 1.5kg hoops offer a good cardio workout as your abdomen and waist muscles work hard to keep the hoop suspended. “Using a Fithoop can burn up to 100 calories in 10 minutes,” says personal trainer Amelia Burton. She also explains that it’s great for supporting your core and back, while improving balance, posture and flexibility.

 Read about their other suggestions here and tell us in the comments below what you will get up to this summer!

By Tammi Ireland

The fithoop is a weighted hula hoop that comes in six different pieces, which you click together to form one large ring. Slip it on your waste, swivel those hips, shake your hands in the air like you just don’t care, and – BAM – you’re working your abs with a giant smile on your face.

I cannot speak highly enough about the FitHoop and the amount of joy it’s brought my friends and family. Everyone is wrangling for a shot at the “most hoops, hula’d” title. At work, Taryn is the winner. In my family, Matt brings it ’round. At home, Patsy looks like she’s gyrating to the coolest tunes while the FitHoop stays up on her hips. It’s amazing.

You’ll note I wasn’t named in any of those mentions. Hula hooping was not a strength of mine at the best of times, and my first try with the FitHoop was no exception. On it went, down it went.  But such is the fun – and the results – that I have been hooping daily to add circles to my tally. You’ll want to out-hoop yourself, so…

The American Cancer Society recently revealed results of a survey that found that 40 percent of women would exercise more if it felt less like a chore – well that’s a no brainer!

Inject some fun into your fitness with hula hooping and other playground fitness ideas.

The Huffington Post crew tried a hula hooping class in New York last week and blogged about it here. Some of the comments from the participants:

“It’s easy to see why people would get hooked on hooping. I saw more smiles in that studio than I’ve ever seen in an exercise class.”

“I certainly broke a sweat, my core muscles were tired and I realized we had had our arms lifted for around 45 minutes! Triceps, here I come!”

Cassey recently posted a video exclusively for Lorna Jane called ‘Perfect Pick Me Up Morning Work-Out’ which is guaranteed to wake you up, get your blood flowing and put a smile on your face!

So put on your brightest workout gear and give this one a try tomorrow morning. If you’re wanting to create a habit of a quick morning wake up try to squeeze in a 10-minute fithoop session every day and maybe a POP Pilates session too :)
