"The classes are fun, liberating, silly, exciting, tricky, and something completely different. "
"I was very surprised how effective and fun
a hula hoop exercise workout can be.
I thoroughly enjoyed the class, and the members did too.”
- Sam Bernard, Studio Manager

"After a long and boring day at work hooping really gave me something to smile about!
It also helped my coordination, something that I didn't think I had any of, but I surprised myself."
