How a Hula Hoop Changed My Life

Yesterday on the Hooplovers Facebook Page I asked,  “How has hooping changed your body?”

 

I expected answers like “I lost … pounds” or “I feel stronger” But the responses were much more powerful and heart felt.

 

Hoopers from all over the world were sharing stories of complete transformation. Many talked about overcoming pain; both physical and emotional. There were stories of weight loss, career change, soaring self confidence, new friendships and more creativity.

 

Some hoopers even declared a hula hoop saved their life!

 

I resonated in many ways with every one of the comments shared, from the light hearted to the deeply painful.

The stories shared inspired me, so here are just 10 ways a hula hoop has changed my life. I would love to hear your hoop story. You can share it with me here or below in the comments.
