I never thought about hula-hooping as an adult. But I read an article in the NY Times, talking about how great the exercise is for you (you can burn up to 600 calories in an hour?!), and how Marisa Tomei is the new face of hooping (she credits it with helping her get in shape for “The Wrestler”). There are DVDs you can buy, that give you a full workout, and in some cities, there are group classes. But really, if you just get the hang of it, what better way to hang out with your kid, get a workout, and have a good time. I can’t imagine hooping and not smiling the whole time.
