TFI Envision, Inc. Jumps Thru Hoops

Norwalk, CT, September 11, 2013 --( The TFI Envision team enjoyed a private hula hoop lesson on their patio from "Bring the Hoopla."

Hula hooping may seem rather childish, but there are actually a surprising number of benefits to an exercise involving hula hooping, including:

Helps burn fat: Hula hooping requires effort from some of the biggest muscles in the body. These muscles require a significant amount of energy, so it forces the body to burn fat stores.

Tones your body: Helps to strengthen and tone your body’s core muscles.

Increases your fitness level: It is a low impact exercise - 10 minutes can provide enough benefit to your body to increase aerobic activity.

Improves your mood: Of course it does, it’s just plain fun.

Improves your coordination: It requires timing and rhythm, which will improve your coordination.

A few interesting tidbits about hula hoop:
• The ancient Greeks used hooping as a form of exercise.
• Around 1300, hooping came to Great Britain, homemade versions of the toy became very popular.
• Japan once banned the hula hoop because the rotating hip action seems indecent.
