Hooping (often called hula hooping) bosts a multitude of health benfits from buring calories to improved digestion, to just making you feel happy. If you're already thinking, "yeah right, I can't keep up a hula hoop to save my life" that's probably because you, as a grownup, have been trying to use a kiddie-sized hoop, which is exteremely challenging. Just as bicycles come in sizes, so do hoops: adult hoops are adult-sized and often heavier, which acutally make them MUCH easier to use. As a kid I couldn't hula hoop for more than 2 seconds, but with an adult hoop I can easily hoop my way through multiple Sex and the City episodes without dropping it once!
So how does one go about getting into the hoop loop? Luckily, the Eastern Panhandle is home to a nationally renowned hoop troupe, Boomtown Hoops, who happen to be hosting hooping classes this fall! Classes are $5, and they'll have hoops available for you to borrow. See below for more details and be sure to "Like" Boomtown Hoops on Facebook to stay in the loop for upcoming events.
Still not sure about this hooping business? Stop by the Boomtown Hoops tent at Pickin in the Panhandle and take a hoop for a test spin!
