“With hooping, it’s a great cardio workout because even though you’re kind of standing in one place you can use your arms. You can use your legs. You can use your waist. You can hoop without even putting a hoop around your waist,” she says.
On a nice day, Finn will take the children either in her backyard or to a park and start hooping. When the kids become bored, they can play on the nearby playground as she continues her workout. Normally other park visitors come and inquire about the unique exercise. Finn learned early on to bring some extra hoops so they could try too.
