Are you saying things like the following to yourself?

But I don’t know how to hula hoop.
There’s not enough space in my house to hoop.
I don’t have time to learn a new skill.

 

You know what? Your concerns are heard and I’m going to help dispel these limiting beliefs and show you how you can shift those thoughts into the Ultimate Empowering Hooper Mindset.

 

We are MASTERS at teaching hula hooping as our team at Canyon Hoops has been hula hooping for over 20 years! We’ve taught countless classes, hosted workshops for beginner hoopers all over the country and helped literally thousands of people just like yourself learn how to hula hoop.

 

Time

Yes, you have the time (I bet we can get you hooping in less than 10 minutes), that’s 10 minutes you would have spent in traffic going to the gym, putting on your workout clothes, tying your shoes, getting into the exercise room, oh man, I’m tired already! You could have already completed your 8 minutes of hooping by now!

 

Space

Hooping does not take as much space as you might think. Stand in the center of your living room, or wherever you think you might hoop. Measure 4 feet out from where you are standing, that’s how much space you need. Maybe you want to tell the cat and dog not to come in while you learn.

 

 

Now that you don’t have any more excuses, grab your hoop and watch this short video. We are going to teach you How to Hula Hoop.

 

 

How to Hula Hoop in 5 Easy Steps

  1. Step inside the hoop, grab a hold of it with both hands and bring it so that it is horizontal with the ground.
  2. Put on foot in front of the other, left foot or right, whichever feel “natural”.
  3. Put the hoop against the flat of your back, just above your hip bones. Hold the hoop so that it remains horizontal with the ground.
  4. With a bit of a shove, push the hoop one direction or another so that it starts circling your hips. It doesn’t matter which direction you choose.
  5. Rock forward and backward on your feet. When the hoop is on your belly, rock forward, when the hoop is on your back, rock backward.  (Pro Tip – You have to do this fast, faster than you think)

Definition of a collapsible hoop!

Lately more and more hoop stores and hooping individuals have been using the adjective “collapsible” to describe a feature of their product. Unfortunately most of these hoops are clearly not collapsible.

What is a collapsible hoop? How is collapsible best defined in relation to a hula hoop? It is clear that meaning of “foldable” is the closest synonym for “collapsible”. Foregoing the definition of collapsible in terms of a building collapsing, the dictionary defines the term collapsible as “being able to fold into a smaller space”. This definition becomes clear when we examine a number of different types of hoops.
