SpinJoy Hula Hoop Fitness Challenge
Welcome to the SpinJoy Hula Hoop Fitness Challenge – Summer Edition
The purpose of this challenge is to kick-start some healthy self care behaviours, take some time to make fun fitness and healthy eating a priority over the Christmas period and into 2018.
Whatever your personal fitness, health or hula hoop goals may be, dedicating 30 minutes a day for 14 days is a great way to gain some focus and start seeing results.
How Does The Challenge Work?
The challenge will be run over on the SpinJoy Hoop Dance Instagram account.
To participate, comment on the Day 1 video here that ‘you’re in’ or would like to participate.
You will then be required to post a short video of you and a section of your hula hoop workout each day for the 14 days of the challenge.
The challenge has officially started on the 7th December 2017
Participants will have until Sunday 24th December to complete 14 days of hula hooping. That means, if you miss a few days, you have some wildcards and time to catch up.

- Post a video each day for 14 days of the challenge
- Tag me @_spinjoy_ in your videos
- Use the hashtags #SpinJoyhoopfitness #SpinJoy and #SpinJoySquad in your videos so I can find and track them

- Have fun
How I Structure My 30 Minute Hula Hoop Workouts
Using an interval timer or stopwatch:
- 10 minutes in reverse /non-dominant current on-body – this can be very difficult at the beginning and will really raise your heart rate. If 10 minutes is too long initially, start with a shorter time and work up to it. You will notice a dramatic improvement in your skill with this direction after only a few days.
- 10 minutes focusing 1 minute intervals on each body part: i.e. coiling. (1 minute legs, 1 minute hips, 1 minute, waist normal direction, 1 minute chest, 1 minute neck, 1 minute each arm, then coiling knees to chest for the remaining time)
- 10 minutes freestyle, high intensity dancing or specific trick drilling
I find it useful to get the “boring stuff” out of the way first. I am the type of person who will ignore the training and drills in lieu of just having a good time. So getting the “hardcore” training out of the way first thing means I get it done and the rest is just a bonus.
This is a very basic structure and overview of how to plan a hoop workout. Any areas that need extra attention should be highlighted. Music and fun in a must.
