after i wrote my prior post about hula hooping, i took things one step further and actually signed up for the WOCSD class, Hula Hooping for Beginners. it runs for 6 weeks on monday evenings and started may 17th.
when i called to sign up they said it was a big class. it was; there were 17 other brave women like myself who were daring to do something different, and risking looking like a fool for the sake of fitness. we ranged in age from twenty-somethings to over fifty-somethings. we all dropped our hoops and bumped into things, but it didn’t feel foolish, it felt…FUN!
the instructor, Christine MacDonald, is engaging and encouraging. she brought everything we needed, which turned out to be the hoops and the tunes (on her ipod). oh, and the enthusiasm!
you know how half an hour at the gym can feel like half a day? well, an hour of hula hooping for beginners felt like ten minutes. so, if you are feeling like trying something different and coming out of your comfort zone, consider hooping.
Christine MacDonald teaches…well, wherever you are, most likely. here’s her website: http://www.missfithooping.com/
