(Hula) hoop it up for a unique fitness class

If you’re looking for a non-traditional way of exercising, hula hooping might be for you. Hula hoop expert Jody Evans is teaching a hula hoop fitness and dance class from 11 a.m. to noon on Tuesdays and Thursdays through Oct. 31 at Shelter Cove Pavilion. The class is sponsored by the Island Rec Center and costs $10 per session. Evans, who has been sharing her love of hula hooping for six years in Boulder, Colorado, and on the beaches of Hilton Head Island, provides the hoops and teaches hoop aerobics, strength-building, and hoop dance tricks.
