My sister fell into the hula hoop craze and well I had to join in, after all, I need all the workouts I can get right now. We got the kids some cheap hoops and soon enough we had a pile of hoops and a gaggle of kids laughing and playing and we all had a great time. By late afternoon on our first day, I felt Like I had ran several miles and swam even more. One of those moments you see how out of shape you have gotten. With more research I realized hula hooping is a pretty good way to kill some time for the whole family.
