Summer is on the horizon and we are wondering why we didn't start working on our Summer bod in January. The days are flying by, aren't they. If you're looking for ways to get back in shape, and you're counting down the days until your vacation, then we've got you covered.
Remember when you were a kid, and you would hula hoop for hours, just to show the neighbor kids how good you were? What if that became your new workout of choice, and you did it right in your own home. Wouldn't that make your workout routine effortless? Do you have 5 or 10 minutes a day to spare?
PowerHoopz is an exercise program that utilizes a weighted hula hoop...a PowerHoopz hoop...weighing about 2.5 pounds. This 39 inch toy can tighten and shrink your waist like nothing else. And did we mention, it's fun. You'll be smiling and showing off your skills to your family and friends. They'll think you're just having fun, but you'll know you're a fat-burning machine who's whittling away your muffin top.
The cute, sparkly hoop comes with a 30 minute workout dvd that will literally tone every muscle in your body. Its quick and efficient...and did I mention, fun. You will burn about 10 calories a minute while hula hooping, so if you just indulged in a unicorn Frap from Starbucks, you only need to hula hoop for the next 50 minutes to burn that off. Turn on a one-hour tv show and hoop away. You'll feel your heart rate rise instantly, yet there is little to no impact on your joints. A lot of women over 50 chose this workout over others, partly because it doesn't bother their knees, and partly because they want to feel young again. Either way, it's a win.
The great thing about the PowerHoopz workout, is that you can do it anywhere, anytime. You can even do it at the beach, at work, in the backyard. The hoop doesn't mind where you're hooping...you shouldn't mind either.
Give it a try and do our 30 day challenge to get results like many others have. Just hula hoop for 5 minutes every morning and do the DVD twice a week to start. You could lose 5 to 10 inches in 30 days, so what have you got to lose....besides 5-10 inches in 30 days. Use coupon cod HOOP10 to get 10% off your order today.
Happy hoopin hoopers. Send me your before and after pics to be featured in an upcoming blog.
Trust your intuition.
I've been preaching the power of "living in the moment" for years. Sometimes I do it, sometimes I don't...but I know I should. The hula hoop has taught me this. You see, when you are standing in that magical circle, you have to be present or you may drop it on your foot. You also have to be joyful because, well, you're hula hooping. Being grumpy and absent, is pretty much impossible in the hoop.
A few months ago, I got a "nudge" to go to a particular grocery store, that was not on my route home. I was busy and didn't even like the store, but I listened and made the turn to go off route. It was like I didn't even have a choice. I walked through the store, grabbed my random items and headed to the checkout. While I was standing there, I saw it. It practically jumped into my arms. It was O, The Oprah Magazine. It was Oprah standing in front of an Airstream Camper drinking tea...and I wanted that to be me. The large captain said, "How to be a Happier Camper"...all I saw was camper, because I wanted to be a camper, and a happy one at that.
Later that evening, as I was getting ready to fall asleep, I remembered I had bought the magazine. I got up and grabbed it, and started shuffling through the pages. I read about getting unstuck and looked at pictures of food and envisioned my PowerHoopz hula hoops in the magazine as Oprah's Favorite Things. As I was about to nod off, I saw a little ad asking if you wanted to join the Inner Circle of O. I thought to myself, a circle, a hula hoop...they must be talking to me, right. So I got my phone out, went to the website and started filling everything out. The questions seemed to be directed specifically to me so I breezed through them, like I already knew the answers to the test. As I was finishing up and getting tired, I noticed that it gave a date and time that this had to be submitted. Well, since I'm always living in the moment, I usually don't even know what day or time it is, but I checked anyway. Wait, the day was that day...and the time that it had to be submitted... 11:59pm. So I check my phone, and it is 11:58pm. I had one minute to spare, so I finished up with my final sentence and hit submit. My final sentence....I put the O in O Magazine. A few weeks later, I got the magical email saying I had been chosen to be part of O Magazine... with one minute to spare. How's that for living in the moment. And how's that for proof that one moment can change everything. I couldn't be more excited to start this journey with O Magazine the 49 other Omazing Insiders that were chosen that same day. Join me on this journey to be inspired to be the happiest camper you can be.
If you've very been to a Southern Women's Show with us, you know that we LOVE these shows. There is so much positive energy and so many fun ladies who are just learning about PowerHoopz for the first time.
And don't get me started on all of the cutie firemen who put on an awesome show to raise money for charity. That is certainly the highlight on ladies night.
This year, we are excited to be on the road with the Southern Women's Show, starting with Savannah, then Nashville, Raleigh, Michigan, Charlotte and then back to Orlando in September. If you have friends or family in these areas, make sure to let them know that Powerhoopz will be in town and will be holding Powerhoopz Instructor Trainings and Powerhoopz parties. Check www.southernshows.com for more details on shows and celebrity appearances. It's going to be hooptastic.
What an amazing time being on HSN. I loved every second of it! The hosts were so great and so good at their jobs and my hoop girls were troopers, sleeping in the green room on our breaks and having positive attitudes the whole time.
I can't wait to do it again. Watch the PowerHoopz HSN video here!!

Well, We held the first PowerHoopz Instructor Training last Friday and it went so amazingly well. I found myself smiling most of the day, just watching my dreams turn into a reality! The future instructors were so enthusiastic about learning a new group fitness class and it brought me true joy to watch them learn and absorb what has spent the last 3 years brewing around in my over-active imagination. I taught them how to sculpt muscles doing isometric holds with their Hoop and how to use the hoop for resistance to work every muscle in their bodies.
I can't wait to bring this awesome fitness class to everybody, as we embark on the PowerHoopz World Tour! You CAN get lean, toned and feel pure joy while you're exercising. I'm doing it, I'm watching it, I'm experiencing it! Get ready to Hoop!
