Powerhoop reviews and testimonials

Weight Lost - 31 pounds

“My weight has yo-yo'd in the last 15 years, with the advent of children and more recently with the passing of my dad. On New Years Day I tipped a pound short of 13 stone which was real wake-up call, and the healthy eating began. I knew I needed to couple this with exercise, but having previously tried bootcamp, the gym, zumba and 'hour of power' I had not found anything I didn't get bored with, and that I actually enjoyed. I work next door to the Leisure Centre in Littleport, and noticed that they were advertising 'Powerhoop' - I signed up, despite never having been able to hula hoop before. I started on the 21st January weighing in at 12st 9lb, and now in July I have lost 2st 3lb and I feel great! I love the class, and I love the alternating between hooping and regular exercise. There's all abilities in our class and I like the fact it's not competitive - we just enjoy ourselves. My instructor Tania changes it up every week, and I think I've only missed one class in all this time. Powerhoop has encouraged me to have more faith in myself - I joined in Tania's 4 hour fitness fundraiser event in June, I completed a 5k Pretty Muddy this month, and have a 11 mile fundraiser walk planned for September this year. In addition to Tania's classes I have my own Powerhoop and DVD, and I regularly hoop for 10-20 minutes of an evening whilst watching TV."

"I love Powerhooping because I feel a lot fitter/ healthier and it has tightened my core muscles. I had lots of loose skin as I have had 6 kids, and since I start Powerhooping it has shrunk a lot. I also have made a really good friend in my instructor Nicolle, we have fun while working out with her and it's thanks to her encouragement that has kept me going. She is a star and Powerhooping has given me the results I was looking for. I have lost 4.5 stone in total! Very happy indeed."

Weight Lost - 30 pounds

"Before starting Powerhoop I was the biggest I've ever been. I weighed 15 stone and I desperately needed to take action. I heard about Powerhooping through a friend and thought I should give it a go. Although I felt uncomfortable with my size I really enjoyed the fun, upbeat class. I walked away thinking 'this is the change I need'.  In nine months, along with a healthy eating plan I've lost 30lb. I've been so motivated by Powerhoop, and my class instructor Michelle has been the best to help me on my journey."

"I was 22 stone and had been trying to lose weight for a good few years. I lost five stone and came to a plateau, then I discovered Powerhoop. Powerhoop is the only exercise I’ve ever enjoyed and I was addicted straight away. I started off with one class a week then increased to two. I love it - it is a full body workout and a great laugh. I've noticed a massive difference in my waist and stomach since starting Powerhoop and I would recommend it to anyone. Powerhoop is the only thing that could get the last of my weight off - I’ve lost another 2.5 stone in the last 9 months. I am comfortably wearing a size 14 – I am so pleased! Power to the hoop!"
