July 10th 2010
How old are you? 24
When did you first start hooping? July 2010. Three days ago as of right now. Ha!
Would you call yourself a beginner, intermediate or advanced hooper? I'm not uber beginner since I have been hula hooping since I was little but I'm definitely new to this level of hooping.
How often do you hoop? As much as possible, on and off throughout the day.
Do you have an indoor hoop space? Yup! My living room/kitchen is really open. I can hoop in the space between the couch and the kitchen island really comfortably, usually while listening to music or watching a movie.
Is there a hoop group where you live? Yes, I go to my first meeting with them in a few days. I'm excited.
Did you start it? No.
Would you say that you are obsessed with or addicted to hooping? Yeah I guess so. When I pick up a new hobby I'm very single minded about it in the beginning until it gets to a healthier place of addiction. Haha!
Have you posted hooping videos? How many? Not yet. I have recorded one, just to be able to watch myself. I doubt I'll ever post it. Ha!
Do you have friends nearby to hoop with? I do have one friend who hoops, or at least used to. I may be going to a hooping class with some friends in September when the instructor gets back to the states. Then of course is the group I'm going to meet with soon.
Do you teach hooping? If so, how many people have you taught? No.
What kind of songs do you listen to while hooping? Anything that makes me happy. :) Usually techno or hiphop/dance.
What is your favorite song right now? I've been listening to Eyelash Curlers & Butcher Knives by Jeffree Star a lot lately. My favorite song changes every week.
Do you buy hoops or make your own? Right now I'm still in the buying part of beginnerhood. But I hope to make my own soon!
Have you lost weight since starting to hoop? I haven't been hooping long enough for that kind of result. Hoping though. :D
What size is your favorite hoop? I have a 40" 1" hoop right now.
Are you comfortable hooping by yourself in a public place? Not really, not yet. I haven't hooped in public yet.
How did you learn the majority of the tricks you know today? Youtube, lot's of practice and trial and error
Who is your favorite hoop teacher? Safire so far.
What advice would you give to to beginner hoopers? Pick it up and try again. :)
Do you fire hoop? If not, do you want to? Not yet, definitely want to try it out someday though!
Do own an LED hoop? Where did you get it? Nope.
How much time do you spend on Hoop City Hooping Community? Just signed up. We'll see. :P
What was the first trick you learned (besides waist hooping)? Shimmying it from waist to neck.
What is the last trick you mastered? I can't really say that I've mastered anything yet.
What trick so far was the hardest for you to learn? We'll see.
Which one are you finding is almost impossible to get? Chest hooping.
How many hoopers would you say live in your town/city? At least one in my town, a bunch just down the highway though. :)
Have you performed hooping in front of an audience? Only my kidlets.
Has anyone told you you were too old to be playing with a hula hoop? Pfft no.
What’s the worst injury you’ve acquired from the hoop? I busted myself in the ear, right into my healing piercing.
Have you ever hooped naked? Might try that. Haha!
Have you been to a hoop camp/retreat? Which one? One day I will. :D
