Like sports cars, hula-hoops are known for their ability to smoothly navigate curves and often spend rainy days pouting in the garage. Take selves for a spin with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a hooping starter kit consisting of a blue travel hoop with matching strap (a $39.99 value), a hoop tote bag (a $24.99 value), a Beginning Level 1 DVD (a $19.99 value), and HoopMix Volume 1 CD (a $9.99 value) from Hoopnotica (a $94.96 total value). Shipping is not included in this deal, and is offered at a flat rate of $9.99.
Hoopnotica handcrafts durable hula-hoops and designs fat-burning workouts that transform the youthful pastime into a low-impact fitness regimen. Each regular-size Hoopnotica hoop weighs in at 1.5 pounds, the optimal mass for working the core and cardio systems without straining the body's spine or kickstand. Start swiveling with a toteable travel hoop, which comes in pieces that easily separate and re-connect without having to make uncomfortable small talk. Each ring comes with a matching strap to keep the segments bound for convenient toting, as well as a durable canvas tote bag that matches the curve of the parts and sports velcro pockets for keys or other items.
Complementing the circular selection, the Hoopnotica starter kit packs a Beginning Level 1 DVD to guide exercisers through hula-based aerobics at home. The Hoopdance routine coalesces the calorie-burn of cardio with the spiritual sentiment of yoga, and, after learning the basic motions, hoopers can set their own routine to the HoopMix CD, which features 45 minutes of original, upbeat tunes. Shown to build bodily balance and strength while ousting stress, ring-swinging also proves 10 times more likely than regular dance to attract Saturn's wandering moons.
