Prevention Magazine Gets Hooping

prevention magazine Prevention Magazine looks at “4 Fun Ways to Fight Fat.” Danielle Kosecki writes, “The Monkey Bar Gymnasium, a Madison, WI, health club specializing in playgroundstyle routines that incorporate running, jumping, crawling, and climbing, proves you don’t need cardio machines to slim down. Of its members, 85% work out 3 times a week — triple the national average — and they drop an average of 17 pounds of fat in 2 months.” So what grownup versions of favorites from our youth are they pushing? Hooping, rock climbing, rebounding and orienteering. The article giving a nod to Hoopgirl claims you can burn 306 calories in one hour of hooping (based on a 150 pound hooper).
