I was interviewed last week and the feature on me is amazing. It's for my hooping. The in print edition is so much better than the online. I mean there is at least 5 in color pictures in the piece and I'm in the corner hooping on the front!

Hopefully this may mean I can get some hoop classes going and sell more hoops!


And if you still think you may be too big for hooping, I got you covered with the article I recently wrote:
http://www.hooping.org/2012/02/for-t...rs-everywhere/

It has had an amazing outpouring of support so far!

Cool! And you look gorgeous in that picture! They teach a hooping class at our local YWCA but I have been too chicken to try. This is very inspirational; thanks for posting

Thank you so much! I would definitely encourage you to try it at least once!

Here is the in print I just took a picture with my phone:









My husband framed it for me!

Awesome!!! I was the hula hoop champ of my elementary school in 1962. I haven't thought of that in a LONG time.

It's great exercise!!! Carry on and congrats.

That's awesome Shannon; I loved watching your videos. Btw, you have a lovely accent (I'm from Canada, so it's more noticeable to me). I used to hoop a lot when I was a kid; gee, maybe I should try it a again. Thanks for sharing this with us all here ~ YOU GO, GIRL!!!

Oh wow, that is SO cool!! I have been wanting to try hooping for a while, and you make it look so fun!!

And about the framing, take it to kinkos and have color copies made. They will last better than newsprint in the light. My brother has a 20 year old feature about himself done like that and it still looks good.

That is crazy awesome!! Such a thorough piece with all of the pics and everything! Reminded me that a good friend of mine was really into hooping for a while, will have to see if she still does it.
