This Woman Can Hula-Hoop with Literally Every Part of Her Body

Brookelynn Bley picked up hula-hooping four years ago. Today, she's a total pro at it and has practically redefined our favorite childhood pastime as an extreme sport. The 23-year-old first gained popularity after a few of her hooping videos went viral on Facebook. From there, the Chicago native launched her Instagram account @nosleeptilbrookelynn and has already scored 108,000 followers. It's pretty easy to see why.

Her moves make it hard to peel your eyes away—and she goes above and beyond to make each video even more impressive than the one before—like doing it with her hands tied behind her back.

Not to mention that she can hula-hoop with literally every part of her body.

Including her butt:

And while hula-hooping might not *appear* to be an intense workout, it's a good option for low-impact cardio and can be awesome for getting your entire core into shape. It also has several mental benefits. "It's a stress reliever and can be meditative in the way it rolls across the belly," Rebecca Burton, a hula-hoop dance instructor at Dance New Amsterdam in New York previously told us in 25 Fat-Burning Summer Workouts to Get You In Shape.

Whether you applaud her for her fitness (hello, core strength and flexibility!) or just the level of circus-like skill, you have to admit that transforming into a human slinky is pretty damn cool.
