Hula Hoop Heath


I photographed Padres closing pitcher Heath Bell for a health story for The Wall Street Journal last weekend. Evidently he has a somewhat unorthodoxed method of training. He lost over 25 pounds in the off-season by using the Wii Fit. His favorite workout, you guessed it the Hula-Hoop game. There was just something kind of humorous seeing a 6'4" bad-ass professional pitcher doing Yoga, aerobics and Hula-Hoop on a video game. Hey, whatever works though. Keep striking those opponents out. We need some wins here.

I did a little writeup on hooping on my blog last month. Hooping.org caught it and contacted me. I didn't realize how big "hooping" is.
