Fads may come and fads may go, but sometime or other they come around full circle and the hula hoop is making its return.

Wednesday night the Sheridan Rec. District held its first session of “Hooping Fitness,” and you guessed it; it's exercising using a hula hoop.

Instructor Cindy Garriott came up with the idea while traveling south.

A great way to burn calories, hula hooping to music is something like Zumba, but dancing while keeping the hoop spinning around your body. Garriott says hula hooping has changed a lot since the fad took hold in the 70's.

Ten year-old Elizabeth Braley was there showing off some moves of her own.

The American Council on Exercise found that you burn up to 200 calories for every half hour hula-hooping.

The second session of Hooping Fitness begins November 30 and registration is at the Sheridan Rec. District Office in Thorne-Rider Park.
