Q:

How many calories do you burn from hula hooping?

A:

According to CNN, hula hooping burns 300 calories in 30 minutes. The total number of calories a person burns depends on the length of time spent hula hooping, the intensity of the workout and the weight of the person who is performing the exercise.

To burn the maximum number of calories, a person should use an adult-sized hula hoop. An adult-sized hoop comes up to an adult's chest when standing on its end. Using a weighted hula hoop burns even more calories. Hula hooping is a trendy way to exercise. Celebrities including Marisa Tomei and Beyoncé have reportedly incorporated hula hooping into their fitness routines. Fitness classes that focus on hula hooping are gaining in popularity as of 2014.
