Hula Hoop Exercise- Any Benefit?

These few days I started to play hula hoop, a simple and easy exercise which I've abandoned since long long ago. And what make me suddenly resume this old-style yet boring exercise? Well, because I've bought a new pair of swimming suit and wanna look slightly better in it, you know what I mean, I don't wanna see my tummy. >< I don't know is hula hooping effective in reducing my waistline, but I wanna give it a try since it's in fact no harm for playing it.

Usually I'll play hula hoop while watching tv, so I won't feel the boredom. I think by playing hula hoop, it does help a bit in firming our body. When we spin the hula hoop around our body, we are using our torso muscles and thus help to strengthen them. Of course it can improve our body coordination since one who doesn't have good coordination won't be able to play hula hoop. I don't think there's anyone out there who can't play hula hoop nowadays, especially the ladies.

Hula hooping is a form of aerobic exercise and equivalent to jogging. It helps to burn those extra calories from 'sinful' fatty food like chocolate, fried chicken etc. I'm not sure how long it will take for me to reduce my waistline and body weight, but at least I know that it's good for my health and can improve my metabolism rate. I'll try to keep my enthusiasm and play hula hoop regularly until I've reached the desired body weight, wish me luck. ^o^
