The market is flooded with DVDs that make promises about weight loss and burning calories. While many help you get a good work out, they often have the same tried and true exercises. How many downward dogs and burpees can you do before getting bored?

Hoopnotica offers a twist on the traditional fitness DVD with a series of hula hoop related work outs. It's fresh, challenging and a lot of fun for those who have never hooped before.

"Hoopnotica Hoopdance Beginning Level 1" includes several exercises that are unique and enjoyable, albeit mostly instructional. Essentially, you have to get the hang of the moves before starting a full-blown work out.

The great part is that the DVD includes detailed instruction so you learn how to do each exercise correctly. It takes a little practice to get the moves right. If you're still struggling with some of the techniques, the DVD includes a trouble shooting guide.

Learn how to hoop on your waist as well as your hips. After you've conquered the basics, you'll learn to perform halos and corkscrews.  After even more practice, you'll be passing and floating the hula hoop, creating a rhythmic sequence that will make your friends and kids want to join in on the fun.

Plus, it makes you look and feel sexy. Who doesn't want that?

*The company recommends purchasing a hula hoop from them to ensure it's the correct weight and size for the optimal workout.
