Hula Hoop for Fitness and Fun


It’s true, you can hula hoop your way into fitness. These ladies do it every week! And with Lisa’s coaching they’ve even developed routines set to music. The next 8-week session of the class starts next week in February. The fee works out to $12/class and keeps you moving for an hour. Lisa can help you design your own hoop with your own colors, tape, weights and style that suits you. She has rentals if you want to try a few first before you buy. Either way, get down to the center on Tuesday next week and join this class. It will be fun, and you can get the basic technique down in  a few minutes. To learn a bit more about the instructor Lisa who is a board certified personal trainer, see her blog.

As always, register online for this any any class at Decatur Recreation Center using webtrac, our online catalog.

Happy Hula Hoopn! This class will be Tuesdays midday at either 11am or 12pm, to be determined next week with customer input.
