Completed Mini-Challenges

Weeks 1 to 2

Hoop for 10mins/day 5days/week; Drink plenty of water

Guidelines:
Start off easy with a goal of 10 solid minutes of hooping 5 days a week. This first week will be challenging for beginers to hooping so don't get frustrated if your hoop seems to be spending more time on the ground than around your waist (this can be included in your 10 minutes). Don't forget to keep yourself well hydrated!
