Create Yourself … An Inspirational Hooping Story !

“Create yourself … yes you can.” These are the words of Carol Harris who wants everyone to know how hooping, diet, and eliminating stress helped her lose 100 lbs.  In her words — “Every day I picture who I want to be and take steps to make it happen.”

Four years ago, she weighed 235 lbs and had a horrible limp. Many days it was impossible for her to navigate stairs. She couldn’t lift her hands above her head or touch her hands behind her back. Now, after 4 years of hooping, at 135 lbs, her pain is gone and her mobility is back. She says she feels younger and she looks fantastic. Check out her 2 videos below.

Thank you so much for sharing your story, Carol.

    Hello! I made a video from clips that I compiled during my first 6 months of hooping; the link is posted above (here it is again

    I really struggled in the beginning; however it has been so worth the effort. I can work out daily for as long as I want (well, except when it’s time to go to work….) without aggravating old injuries. Joy!

    As of this writing I am at month 7 and still hooping strong.

    Best wishes!

    It would be an honor to have my video posted here on your site!

    Thank you for making so many awesome tutorials – and for organizing them in a way that makes sense. I’ll continue to share this site with fellow hoopers.
