I'm sure you've all at least heard of the Wii Fit series of fitness games available from Nintendo - they've even come out with a Wii Fit Hula Hoop Exercise game!
My first thought - "virtual hula hooping, really?"
Then came the hugely popular You Tube video of a guy videotaping his girlfriend swinging her hips to the virtual Wii Hula Hoop game in her underwear:
Classic! This one had me on the floor laughing. The NY Post even talked about it in their July 29th article on Hoopnotica.
Honestly, I haven't tried the Wii Fit version of hula hooping, but I just think it has to be way more fun and much more effective to exercise with a Hoopnotic Hoop instead. And let's not forget - you can't HOOPDANCE with the Wii Fit version, and heck, that's where the fun is - not to mention the way you can actually burn 400-600 calories per hour, tone your entire body and look incredibly SEXY. Don't get me wrong, the hula hooping girlfriend in the video has a cute booty, but let's face it, she looks more silly than sexy.
To prove my theory, I got into my underwear, popped the Hoopnotica Hooping in the City demo on the TV, sat my boyfriend Sammy Bliss on the couch with the video camera, and hooped it up...
If you've tried the Wii Fit Hula Hoop Exercise game and think it's fun, I challenge you to get into a Hoopnotic Hoop, try out some of the hoopdance moves from our instructional DVDs and see how much fun you can have with a REAL hoop! Then come back here and tell me all about it!
And by the way, hooping in your underwear rocks (as HoopMamma can attest to), and your guy on the couch will always appreciate it ;)
Until next time, HOOP ON!
