Hoopnotica rescues the humble hula-hoop from the realm of retro toys and turns it into a serious workout tool capable of burning hundreds of calories per hour. Hooping creates an intense yet impact-free workout session that bolsters core strength while maintaining the fun and irreverence of a child's play session. The variegated rings come in a variety of styles and sizes, ranging from full-size and travel versions for standard spinners to LED-lined hoops for whirling at night or playing pranks on UFO conventions. Meanwhile, four levels of DVDs guide spinners through the fundamentals of Hoopnotica's vast aerobic oeuvre, starting with simple around-the-belly spins and down-the-hill rolls before moving on to complex arm weaving and barrel-roll techniques.
