With few exceptions, like dumbbell juggling and jogging on the deck of Alan Alda's yacht, exercise is never effective and enjoyable. Test out one of the exceptions with today's Groupon: for $19, you get three hoop-dance classes (a $45 value) at Circle Motion Hoops on Seminole Drive.
Circle Motion Hoops combines the core-toning capabilities of an aerobic workout with the childlike sense of fun of a simple hoop. Circle Motion's instructors eagerly guide novices through the basics of circle swinging during an introductory class, held on Tuesday evenings from 6 p.m. to 7:15 p.m. at the Flying Monkey Arts Center Theater. While hooping, the ring serves as a non-human dance partner and helps students burn up to 600 calories per hour, or 1,720 calories per average MLB baseball game.*
