(but I like it!)
So I bought a hula hoop (argos, Pro... lots of people seem not to like Davina's version) and just put it together and tried it. I can still do it! Mind it's easier with a weighted one I think. However it is somewhat like being beaten around the middle (or wherever else it strikes on it's way to the ground!) and I expect there will be bruising!!! Going to have a go at this doing five minutes a day... apart from anything else all that hip action has got to be good for something....!
