Bring the hula hoop to your waist level and step one foot in front of another for balance and your knees bent, spin the hula hoop around the waist in back and front or side to side movements.

Bend your body slightly forward, feet close together and arms close to the sides, jump over the rope and see to it that you land on the balls of your feet. Go for three 10 minute workouts every week.
