A couple of years ago I took a hula hooping class and it was super fun. The trick is to have a hoop that is adult sized, hooping is way harder than it has to be and uncomfortable with a kid sized hoop you buy at a toy store.
I made a bunch of hoops using this tutorial by JasonUnbound. I highly recommend using the 1/2 inch pipe instead of the 3/4, the 3/4 ones gave me huge bruises! They’re fun to make and you can buy fun glittery tape to decorate them or just use duct tape or electrical tape.
Anyway! I have an extra copy of the HoopGirl Hulaerobics DVD and I’d like to give it away to a lucky reader! You’ll have to make your own hoop though! Or you can buy adult sized hoops online as well, HoopGirl sells them and I’m sure you can find them in other places as well.
