Do you want to learn to hula hoop like Grace Jones? If you haven’t seen iconic videos of her singing and swinging a hula hoop on her hips, then where have you been? Numerous people come to our classes referencing that Diamond Jubilee video as their inspiration to give hooping a go.

This is your year to unlock your inner superstar, become a slave to the rhythm, and learn to hula hoop like Grace Jones. There are tonnes of brilliant benefits of hula hooping. We’ve featured five brilliant reasons to give hula hooping a go, and channel your inner Grace Jones!

Build Strength (both physical and mental)

Grace Jones has such a strong stage presence and persona. Both mentally, for breaking so many boundaries and becoming an icon, and physically –  she’s rocking some serious core strength in her 70s. Something we love about hula hooping is it can help you grow stronger both physically and mentally.

Physical strength

Hula hooping is a great core workout, helping you build abdominal strength, tone your stomach and help slim your waist. But the benefits don’t stop there. When you come to a HulaFit class you get a full-body workout – using your arms, core, glutes and legs. We also use the hoop as a prop for traditional fitness moves, such as using it as a weight. Learning to hula hoop like Grace Jones at a HulaFit class helps you get physically stronger, but it’s so fun you don’t realise how hard you’ve been working.

Mental strength & mental health benefits

Hula hooping is also great for mental health and finding your inner strength. Mindfulness is essentially being present in the current moment – and has loads of benefits. When talking about mindfulness most people think of meditation, but you can mindfully do any activity, including walking, eating and – yes – hooping. When learning to hoop, or learning to do new things with a hula hoop, you’ll become engrossed in that activity. You really don’t have time to think about your worries when you’re learning the cha cha cha while spinning a hoop around your waist. 

When you exercise your body releases feel-good endorphins. Nothing beats the feeling of moving in a fun way to your favourite tunes –  it will keep you glowing for hours after a class! We jam-pack our classes with feel-good chart toppers that you know and love (including the odd tune from the mighty Grace Jones) to keep you moving and smiling from start to finish. 

Improving Posture

Something that always stands out to us about Grace Jones is her presence and stature. Sure, hula hooping won’t magically help you become 5 foot 10 and a half like she is. However, it can do wonders for your posture and help you stand taller. When spinning a hoop around your waist, you stand tall, engage your stomach muscles and your glutes and lift your chest. You simply can’t keep a hoop up when you’re slouching! The more time you spend hooping, the better posture you’ll have in your daily life. You’ll stand taller and look and feel more confident.

Build confidence

Speaking of confidence, this is something the mighty Grace Jones has in spades. And hula hooping can certainly help you feel more confident. Whether it’s confidence:

  • in your abilities from learning a new skill
  • from watching yourself progress at something
  • learning that you can do challenging things if you put your mind to it
  • that comes with making new friends in a HulaFit class, or even from
  • feeling stronger and fitter!

Hula hooping is an incredible means to becoming a more confident version of yourself and help you release your inner superstar!

Unlock a superstar skill

Grace Jones is a woman of many talents – singing, acting, modelling and of course hula hooping. By giving hula hooping a go you are unlocking a new skill and talent.

Hula hooping can improve your motor skills such as balance and coordination, helping you move more confidently in and out of the hoop. 

Everyone has to be a beginner at some point, but if you persevere and put the practice in you’ll get there! Soon you’ll be showing everyone your tricks and teaching your friends and family how to hoop too!

Be bold and try something different!

Grace Jones was never afraid to be different – from her striking fashion style to her genre-spanning music. Hula hooping is an alternative way to get fitter and stronger. It’s a seriously fun form of movement that will help you enjoy physical exercise. 

Sure there are some more traditional fitness classes out there – but who wants to do the same boring workout as everyone else? Remember – the best kind of exercise is the type you actually enjoy and want to stick to!

All eyes on you (if you want them to be!)

We know many people who started hula hooping through HulaFit classes and took their hooping to the next level as a career. Whether you’d love to (in time) become a performer or a HulaFit instructor, hooping is an in-demand skill and there are plenty of paid opportunities out there.

Not everyone wants to get up on stage or in front of a class and perform/lead a class. But if it’s a dream of yours, coming along to a HulaFit class could be that all-important first step for launching a new career.
