You should absolutely try it! It's the first physical activity that I've done that in no way feels like "exercise." It's pure fun!

Wow, you guys are amazing! I hadn't ever thought of using a hoop to get fit, but this sounds like great fun...

Thanks for the "Spark!"

I got a beautiful new collapsable hoop this summer so now I can take it with me wherever I go!

I agree, I have a problem with chest hooping. I find that I can get it up to my chest but I can't make it stay. A hoop teacher I know said that when you're waist hooping, you make your body movement a circle, but when you're hip hooping, you almost make a sort of a triangle with your movement in order to keep up the velocity of the hoop around the larger area. Maybe it's a similar sort of thing with chest hooping?

I have a hoop but I only use it maybe once a month or so. It gets easier as my waist gets smaller. Did you notice that as well? I am not coordinated AT ALL so I haven't been able to do any tricks yet. Have you looked at the videos on youtube? There are tons of tutorials on there. Good luck!

I have started doing hula hoop dancing as an exercise that is fun.
Now I am pretty new at it, and it is very new around here too, I drive 200 miles to meet with a group and a teacher ...

So I wanted to ask are there others who do it on here?
Anyone any good ideas /tricks to manage the transition from waist to chest hooping? I managed a few times, but not consistently and it is getting less likely instead of better.
I can't make it to the class until September ... and I am getting grumpy with my lack of progress.

Anyone any ideas for this or other tricks or would just like to exchange ideas with other hoopers?
