This video, while a little long, is a culmination of a full year of hooping practice. I've used footage from my first week through my first hoopiversary.
When I saw someone hoop for the first time I was mesmerized and couldn't get it out of my head—I ordered my first hoops and started practicing obsessively. I fell in love and it changed my life. I hate working out and now I actually am physically active, I have a hobby (other than being a workaholic) I have a stress reliever, a way to combat seasonal affective disorder, a creative outlet and something I love to share. It's done wonders for my self esteem. I lost 25 pounds in the first six months. I wear shorts and skirts now (because they're easier to hoop in) when before I was always trying to hide under clothes.
I'm a Hoopnotica certified hoopdance instructor, make and sell hoops and perform. I'm working on a BodyHoops Fit Kids certification as well. I don't think I can truly describe all the ways hooping has changed my life and everything it's done for me. I'm so thankful that this simple plastic circle has rolled into my life. I'm so much happier and healthier because of it.
