Do I Still Have Time?

Do I still have time to lose another inch on my waistline for coming Chinese New Year? We have another 2.5 weeks to go and I am pressured to trim my waistline further to fit nicely in my new cheongsam. Well, I guess I have to keep hooping! 


Do I still have time to lose another inch ?Here's a picture of my 4th child. My previous blog post was 2.5 years ago. My pregnancy journey with baby Kristen was a rough one. Having said that, being the mummy to my 4 beautiful kids is one of my greatest joy.

We have new value packs to help expedite tummy trimming. Check out our Tummy-Trim Packs that comes with with Slimming Waistband at 50% OFF! This is no ordinary waistband, it comes with special natural minerals to help increase blood circulation and helps in fats burning. 

 

We will be out of town for Chinese New Year for 5 days (26-31 January). Hence, there won't be any delivery services until we return to Singapore. 

I wish you Happy Chinese New Year!

When Should I Increase My Hoop’s Weight?

Ever wonder why you don’t see any more improvement on your waistline? You have been working out regularly with your hula hoop, and begin to feel discouraged and think that hula hooping is not for you anymore. Your sign of boredom with hula hooping is a POSITIVE indication that your waistline is ready for greater challenge. Spice up your hula hoop routine by increasing the hoop’s weight or get another new hula hoop texture for a new hooping experience.

Increasing hoop’s weight will tone and build up your core muscles. Increasing muscle mass means burning more fats around your waistline. Sounds great, isn’t it?

Working out with various hula hoop models (mixture of magnetic hoop and foam hoop) will definitely spice up your hula hooping regime. Magnetic hoops have magnetic bumps that increase massaging effects around your waistline. These magnetic bumps increase blood circulation directly on your waistline. Foam hoops has rounder and smaller tube, which helps in defining your waistline. Hoop 5-10 minutes on each hula hoop model, you can easily clock in 15-20 minutes of a great hula hoop workout! Remember to always hoop clock-wise and anti-clockwise. This helps even out muscle tone from both sides of your waist.

Doris and MayI would like to share with you about an inspiring lady I met through HulaHoopSingapore.com. Her name is Doris and she's definitely a hula hoop enthusiast. She has been working out with hula hoop for many years. Check out her body. Doris is in her 60’s and still looking GREAT! Her tummy is flat despite having 3 kids. I am very encouraged and inspired with her hula hooping regime. She travels with her hoops too. 

And yes, that’s me with 24 weeks pregnant. Wish I could hula hoop…. I guess not another few months after baby arrives.

 

 

Happy hooping!

Too many hoops… CONFUSING???

I have been receiving many emails asking which is the correct hula hoop for them. I guess HulaHoopSingapore is spoiling you with too many hula hoop options. I hope this article helps.

What will you expect to see if you start hula hooping now? You will definitely see a curvier waistline, stronger back and abs. Hula hooping is a great exercising equipment during your busy times, when you are caught up with work, family or bad weather. Hula hooping may be your first step in exercising. It is convenient, and you will love it that you own one at home. You can exercise anywhere and anytime. 5 minutes a day of hula hooping is better than not exercising at all.

Here are some guidelines in selecting a preferred hula hoop. Ask yourself these questions to scope down your ideal hula hoop. Types of Hulahoop

 

  1. If you are a beginner, ALWAYS start with a lighter hula hoop. Don’t be over ambitious in getting the heaviest hoop just because it’s ON SALE. You will end up injuring yourself. Increase the hoop’s weight gradually. If you do exercise regularly and have quite strong abs, you may start using heavier hula hoops with weight from 1.4kg onwards.  

  2. How tall are you? Ideally, a hula hoop’s diameter should be around your navel area from the ground. If you are 150cm tall (plus minus), a 90cm diameter hula hoop is good for you. If you are taller than 160cm, a hula hoop with diameter of 100cm will be around your navel area. These hula hoop sizes that match your height will give moderate spinning speed

  3. How fast would you like your hula hoop to spin? If you prefer a high impact hula hooping exercise, choosing a smaller hula hoop diameter will help you sweat sooner. Smaller hula hoop will spin faster because it completes a circle quicker compared to a bigger hula hoop. Even if you are tall person, but like moving around fast while hula hooping, select a smaller size hula hoop. Like wise, if you are not-so-tall, you may also use a bigger hoop for a slower twirls. All of our magnetic hoops are in 110cm, which may look big for smaller size adults. You will still be able to spin the hula hoop comfortably despite your height. 

  4. Which is better, WAVY or SMOOTH foam hoops? Both of these hoops are as effective when you exercise in the same way and same speed. They will give you the same result. Choice of the hoop's model depends on your preference. Smooth hoop gives you are smoooooth hula hooping experience. Whereas a wavy hoop provides extra massaging effect around your torso because of the unique waves at the inner side of the hoop.

  5. Should I take MAGNETIC or FOAM hoop? Foam hoops are ALL TIME favorite. It is surrounded with high quality soft foam, which makes landing impact gentler on your torso. Magnetic hoop has magnetic protrusions at the inner side of the hoop that provides massaging effects. Moreover, the magnetic bumps help increase blood circulation. If you are looking for a good massage, magnetic hoop will be nice. Magnetic hoops are also good for users with “flabby” tummies. Trimmer users will find the bumps uncomfortable or even painful.

If you still have more questions about our weighted hula hoop, please write to us at contactus@hulahoopsingapore.com. I will be happy to hear from you.

Lotsa Catch Up To Do!

Hi again! 

It didn’t occur to me that I haven’t been writing on this blog… UNTIL I received an email from a hula hoop enthusiast. I felt the pinch when she referred to my blog dated in 2013 (seems so long). So, looks like we have some catch up to do here. I wish I have more inspiration to blog and write more often. Anyway, here are some updates on what I did for HulaHoopSingapore.com since last year till to-date.

JULY 2013
Back in July 2013, I enrolled into FISAF Singapore Core Course (The Federation of International Sports, Aerobics and Fitness). I joined FISAF because I wanted to be more equipped and be more grounded on fitness area. I learned about the fundamental of Functional Anatomy, Muscle Physiology, Mechanics of movements, Nutrition and I was introduced to many forms of exercises. The 5-day course was really laborious, it involved lots of theory and also physical activities. I was aching all over the very next day the course started. Now you know how unfit I was (heh!) Please find below for some of pictures of me during the course.
I am very proud standing next to a body building champion. Thank you Joan for this lovely picture. After FISAF Core Course, I realized I needed professional help in achieving my fitness goals. I engaged a fitness personal trainer from a reputable gym owned by national body builder champion in Singapore. In the 6 months personal training course, I learned the importance in working out all muscle groups to achieve an enviable body. By the end of the course, I manage to lose about 2kg (not much), but I gained muscles mass and lost quite a percentage of body fats. Not easy, but discipline is definitely an important ingredient. 


"Thank you Joan Liew for this beautiful picture with you. You are a great lady! 
I am very proud standing next to a bodybuilding champion!"
MAY 2014
Fast forward to May 2014, I took a step ahead in this business to venture to China to source for fitness products. Unfortunately, I was too overwhelmed with the products and I didn’t snap pictures with hula hoops found in the exhibition hall. The exhibition hall was massive, my feet ached badly after walking for 6 hours straight (minus lunch break). Nevertheless, I got a shot with some hula hoops I saw outside a sundry shop. This is how common hula hooping is in China. 
Trade fair in ChinaThe exhibition hall was enormous!

After returning to Singapore, I participated in Hula Hoop Contest organized by SPH sometime end of May 2014. Guess who won? Not ME! It’s not that I couldn’t hula hoop, that’s just because the hoops they were using are from the toys shop (small and very light). I couldn’t even hoop for a decent 3 seconds. It feels like it’s a free clown show from me, trying my utmost best in twirling the hoop on the stage (embarrassing). I was very hopeful in pocketing the prizes in the beginning… Sigh.… arghhh… anyway, it was a great experience. Here are some pictures taken by my friend. Ok, now you can have a good laugh at them. 
JUNE 2014
In June 2014, I got in some smaller hula hoop samples from Taiwan. These are smaller and lighter hula hoops for small sized users and children. I received quite a number of requests from my customers for good quality kid’s hoops. The ones they get from toys shop will usually get out of shape within a few tries. I manage to engage young testers to help give feedbacks on the hula hoop samples. Thanks to valuable feedbacks and our new range of children-teenage hula hoops are on their way to Singapore! They will be ready by end of July 2014.

And now in July 2014, I am currently working on a new website. Don’t you think HulaHoopSingapore.com needs some friendlier features and a make-over? This current DIY website is not something I am proud of. But, it didn’t stop hula hoop enthusiasts from writing in. Thank you all, for your support! The new website will be launched by end of July 2014 together with new hula hoops models! So, stay tuned!

Sorry for this long write-up. That’s the problem for not writing often enough, ya? If you reached this part, THANK YOU for staying with me. 

Have a wonderful week ahead!

Does SIZE really matter?

Does size really matter to you? What do you think? The answer is a resounding YES! I am not referring to how muscular you are, how big your house is or how fat your paycheck it. But, the serving portion of your meal/snacks. For the past few months, I have been trying to reach my pre-wedding weight. It doesn’t really seem far, it’s about 5kg away. Unfortunately, the journey is surely a long and tough one for the little weight I was about to lose. 


I tried assessing my eating habits. 

Am I eating healthy? Yes, I am

Am I exercising regularly? Yes, I am. 3-5 times a week. 

Now, back to basics. How much HEALTHY FOOD do I really eat every day? I munch on nuts instead of chips. Isn’t that healthy? The culprit lies in the portion of serving size. I can eat a "small" bowl of it. Whereas the recommended serving size is just a palm full. A palm full will be about 10-12 small nuts. Frequency, recommended ONCE a day. But, I can munch on the nuts throughout the day! How wrong is that?!!! (*smile)

I lower my carb intake and increase protein in-take. Where is the source of protein? I am a lover of roast pork belly. That’s it. Another culprit that sabotaged my weight loss program. I am consuming more fats than protein. The proportion is not there.

The list can go on. The way food is prepared matters too. Deep fried or air fried makes a difference. Perhaps you may want to take some time to assess your eating habits and serving portion. The simple principle applies, what goes in and what comes out. Less goes in, less comes out. 

Good day!

Step up your hula hoop workout

Since we started our online shop last year end, one of the popular hula hoop in our store is WH001 Wavy Foam 1.2kg. I bet by now, you are very used to your hoop. Or even question yourself, "is this hoop working for me???". This is a good sign. This simply means your back, waist, tummy and leg muscles are ready for greater challenge. To encourage the "not-so-newbies" to step up your hula hoop workout, we are offering 20% off on hoops for advanced users (hoops weighing 1.8kg on onwards) and 10% off for intermediate users (hoops weighing 1.4kg - 1.5kg). 


We have a new magnetic hoop (WH003) that provides good massage on your torso. It has big massaging balls, comes with magnet on each massage bumps to improve blood circulation as your twirl. The total weight of the hoop is 1.7kg. This is suitable for advanced users.

If you are bored working out with your single hula hoop, try hooping with different hoop weight and texture. Foam hoops and magnetic hoop is a good match for one working session. Try exercising your arms while hooping. Do tricep/bicep curls with light weight dumbbells (0.5kg -1.0kg) or wrist weights. 

Happy exploring and be creative with your hula hoop workout. 
Good day!
