Just make sure you check with your doctor before starting a new fitness routine and consult with a trainer to avoid injuries.

Bustle talked with certified personal trainer and fitness consultant Rob Pambrun who recommended starting off with 10 minute-long sessions two or three days a week. He also suggested using a lighter hoop at the beginning, which can help your body adjust to the equipment and avoid any bruising.
