Hula Fitness classes are a great new way to tone your waist with the addition of arm and leg work. We get a lot of women joining us saying that they can’t hula, but the design of the hoops makes it achievable for everyone. It may take a week or so to pick up the basic technique, but this class is fun, rewarding and sociable. We use upbeat music during class and cover a range of movement, some arm tricks, strength work, and finish with some fun routines!
Yes, we have hoops in a range of sizes. The bigger ones are slightly easier for beginners, then you can gradually down-size as you get better.
These hoops are heavier than the kids ones, so they are a lot easier. And we help you with technique in your first class. Most of the time you return the following week a lot better as your brain has had time to process what the body needs to do!
They are weighted just because of what they’re made of, but they don’t have additional weight inside. Heavy enough for a workout!
General fitness attire – trainers, jogging bottoms, leggings, t-shirt etc
The Hula Social on a Saturday is just a very casual hula class where newcomers can get to grips with the basic elements of keeping a hoop up, and people can come and have a chat and a gossip on a Saturday morning!
We spend approximately 20 minutes each week going over some basic arm tricks – some are quick to pick up, others take a lot of practice. For more tricks such as hooping around the legs/shoulders or ‘performance’ hoop, it’s best to try elsewhere as we are more fitness-based.
