Curvy Hoopers

Updated on April 14, 2014

For All Shapes

I bought a hula hoop kit to give myself another fun opportunity to be active but when I took it out of the box to try and use it I was a big flop. I immediately assumed it was because of my weight and not my skill.

Once I got over myself I went looking online for other plus size hoopers and found a treasure trove of inspiring women who love to hula hoop and who have a little more on their bones than the women in the exercise videos that make it look so easy.

What follows are some of my favorite plus size hoopstress's in action. I hope you find them as inspiring as I do.

Hey, Soul Sister

It's finally available on Amazon. I bought mine during a 3 day sale at Gaiam. I love watching Marisa. There is something so genuine about her. And this is not her first exercise video. I'll write a proper review when I'm finished all videos.

      Hm I only got to the point where I discovered I can not do it any longer. Probably it's because I tried my daughter's toy...:)
