I caught Britain’s Got Talent over the weekend. One of the contestants was a 64 year hulahooper – John Parnell.

And I met him.

I was at a festival a couple of years ago and went to his class to learn hula hooping. and I did fine.
What I learned was that most people don’t have a big enough hoop. You need one that comes up to your boobs. Once I had a bigger one I did fine.

Hula hooping could be great for fitness, and fun, and possibly could be a change of career. I think John was in his 50s, had been made redundant from a sales job and decided to start on a new path.

You can read his story in the Coventry Telegraph
and here is the link to his website to find out more about hula hooping.
