That's right, the hula hoop is back with a vengeance. (Just ask Michelle Obama, Beyonce, and Marissa Tomei!) Incorporating principles of Pilates, barre, yoga, and cardio interval training is the FXP Fitness Hula Hoop System ($39.95 to $159.95), which you can practice at home to your heart––and hips'––content, whether you're a beginner or expert "hooper."  

Four kits are available. The FXP Hula Hoop starter kit includes a weighted, portable hula hoop (featuring FXP's patented Easy Spin technology), carry bag, slip or yoga mat, diet and exercise guide. More comprehensive kits are also available that contain more advanced workout DVDs, as well as diet guidelines, supplements, and protein powders.
