Hooping It Up

Hula hooping, or hooping as it's come to be known, appears to be the next hip fitness trend, especially after First Lady Michelle Obama recently was seen hooping on the White House lawn for the Healthier U.S. School Challenge. The trend is trickling down to college campuses, too. West Virginia University hosted a hooping class at its rec center last Sunday, and the University of Maine is reportedly following suit. Not only are you working your core muscles when you're hooping, but the weighted hoops make it easier for adults to get into the swing and keep it moving—plus it's fun!
