How Can I Drop 10lbs in 1 month - and have fun doing it?!
HoopCore - is a program that I designed in 1998. Elements from skiing, cycling, running and rock climbing are what makes this workout fun. I live in Aspen, CO and travel to host trainings and workshops. Other demographics must rely on indoor classes to get fit. It is my passion to bring the power and playfulness of mountain sports into a gym or in home workout. Dozens have stated that they have lost 10 pounds and 4 inches off their waist in less than 1 month. The routine offers isometric and plyometric moves to simulate the body working at top speeds (like in extreme sports) And to make it easy for the total beginner to learn, I designed a collapsible, padded hoop which is called The Betty Hoop. It is 'Idiot Proof'! The science of the design is explained on my website. Most importantly, I am looking to train athletes and fitness trainers and dance instructors to use my program for their clients.
I hope this helps.
In my classes, while waist hooping, students run through an obstacle course with bosu ball, mats, balance board, yoga ball etc. We move the body super slow to fast speeds to condition the muscles to fire at an isolated and integrated way.
My studies show that my program targets digestion and metabolism because the weight and force of the hoop deeply massages the gut, so I guess that's why people can lose weight without changing their diet.
It's interesting because many students of mine lose about 4 inches and 10 lbs the first month of hooping with me. I ask them if they have dieted or changed any lifestyle practice. They have all told me no! That they continue to eat and drink the same as before. I always suggest that a clean diet will support better health and weight loss and muscle/brain function anyway. (for me, I can't get over the craving for German Chocolate Cake)
Really, how so?? I would love to see this study!
I also work with chiropractors, sport trainers and a person at a weight loss clinic. They have all told me that my method really isolates the correct muscles groups which would obviously increase the break up of fat deposits and toxins, boosting metabolism.
Athletes who I train state that in the first few sessions, they have over 50% less back pain. Some tell me that they got off their pain pills and that my program works better than a session with their physical therapist.
So I use the real results from real people to base my studies on but I am sure happy to talk with you if you are genuinely interested.
Here's ACE's findings on Hula workouts and what their study proves- http://www.acefitness.org/blog/1208/ace-reveals-findings/
Eating a balance of "real foods" is key to weight loss, along with "cross training" and mixing up workouts, not just a hoops progam.
If a person is over weight enough, losing 10 pound is possible in any progam if they eat well.
