Everyone from Zooey Deschanel to First Lady Michelle Obama is hot for hula hooping. It makes perfect sense: who can resist a fun, fresh way to blast off calories and tone up all over? To get in the swing, too, try our exhilarating hula hoop workout from Gabriella Redding, CEO and creator of Hoopnotica, a Los Angeles–based company that offers hooping classes, plus sells hoops and how-to DVDs.

Start with the basic moves until you feel comfortable, then step up to more advanced ones, mixing and matching for your own personal head-to-toe tone-up. Do any combination of moves for 30 minutes (you’ll burn 150 to 250 calories per workout) three times a week for four weeks and you’ll lose 3 to 6 inches all over your body. Yep, belly included!
