Lucy Mecklenburgh reveals secret to her enviable figure: Hula hooping!

Lucy Mecklenburgh often tops the bill when it comes to most girls' celebrity gym crush, but now we love her even more after hearing her fun-filled fitness secret that she credits her figure too... hula hooping!

Never mind squats and hitting the treadmill, hula hooping is Lucy's secret weapon when it comes to staying in shape. How fun is that!

Taking to Instagram over the weekend, Lucy practiced what she preaches sharing a gorgeous selfie before getting her hoop on.

In her snap, the starlet can be seen rocking her gym gear while carrying her sparkly pink hoop (you can take the girl out of Essex and all that...) over her shoulder. Alongside her post, she told fans: "Sunday Funday! @resultswithlucy Hooping!! #RealSweat #RealResults #ResultswithLucy."

Since launching her very own successful fitness site Results With Lucy, the 24-year-old has tried her fair share of workouts and fitness tricks.

Proving that you don't just have to rely on your typical exercises when hitting the gym, Lucy recently told the Daily Star her enviable waistline is the result of many hula hooping sessions and plenty of skipping.

"I love hula hooping – it's a great exercise to keep your waistline trim and it's actually really good fun," she said.

And if you can't get your hands on a hula hoop, her next best thing is a good ol' skipping rope. Talk about school playground nostalgia at its best!

She added: "Also, skipping – you should take a skipping rope everywhere with you! Both of these are easily done outdoors in the summer, so you have no excuses and it's free to do."

Sounds fairly doable, doesn't it?

When she's not practising her hoop skills or skipping in the garden, Lucy has been spending time with boyfriend Louis Smith. Following her hula hoop workout on Sunday (14 June), Lucy joined Louis for date night, attending a fashion bash in London.

The pair have been dating for several months now after Lucy confirmed she and Louis were officially an item earlier this year. Since getting together, the loved-up pair are often heard gushing about each other.

Lucy has declared Louis is the best boyfriend ever, while the GB athlete has said he hasn't felt like he does about Lucy in a long time.

With their romance hotting up, fans were quick to speculate if the pair will take their relationship to the next level and get engaged. But dismissing engagement rumours, Louis recently said he and Lucy won't be heading down the aisle just yet.

"I'm sorry to disappoint," he said. "But we're not getting engaged yet."
