Lots of New Hoops!

Last week I made 8 new hoops to bring with me to my first hooping fitness class this past Saturday. I wasn’t sure how many people would come to the class or how many would want to purchase their own hoop so I just made a bunch! The class went well and 3 of these hoops went to new homes (and new hoopers!)… take a look 🙂

All are made with 3/4 in. 100 PSI tubing. To keep them on the cheaper side, all of these hoops were made with duct tape, vinyl tape, and/or gaffer tape.

Open Hooping

Lots of hooping coming to the Albany area in 2011! Not only did we have the first hooping fitness class at  Maximum Fitness in Troy this past Saturday, there will also be weekly Open Hooping at the Tigon Academy in Watervliet! Open hooping will take place every Monday & Wednesday night at Tigon from 7:30pm – 8:30pm for ages 8 and up. Open Hooping is not a class, it is simply a time for hoopers to get together and learn, teach, and play with our hoops! It is open to everyone, even if you have never hooped before come give it a try! It costs just $5 per attendance for nonmembers of Tigon or $15 per month. Tigon is located at 711 3rd Ave. in Watervliet, NY. Hope to see you there!!


Cutie of the Day!


For Christmas this year I bought myself the Cute Overload calendar (after I got one for my secret santa too!). If you’ve never been to Cute Overload you MUST check it out. Since I’m on the internet all day at work, looking at the cutie patooties (yes, Rosie!) on here help to break up the day for a few minutes. So with the calendar comes a new cutie every day (eeep!) and cute little captions too. I wanted to share today because this one is EXTRA cute…a wittle baby bunny for your Tuesday afternoon. Love love love.

Hoopy Happenings!!

There are some exciting things happening in the near future!! HulaFit starts up again this week, I will be attending the Big Apple Circus on Wednesday, and I’ll be hosting an open hoop happening this Saturday January 8th!!! The guys down at Maximum Fitness in Troy are nice enough to allow us local hoopers to use their martial arts room from 11 AM to 12PM this Saturday for open hooping and if we get even just a few people to come, it could become a regular..even WEEKLY event!

If you are a hooper in the Albany area and would like to join us it is just $5 for nonmembers of Max Fitness. Everyone is welcome, even if you have never hooped before. I will be bringing a few extra hoops so if you are interested in giving it a try please come! I am super excited to meet some local hoopers and share our tips & tricks & love of the hoop! If you are in the area and can not make the event, join the Albany Hoopers groups on HoopCity and to connect with other local hoopers and keep up with the happenings/events. If you are definitely planning on coming to Maximum Fitness this Saturday to spin with us (or have any questions), just leave a comment to let me know…hope to see you all this weekend! Happy Hooping 🙂
