You go, vrai!!!! Safe travels to you, and Monello.
Just so you know, I pulled out Bug's. Epic fail, so far!I used to do it just fine at the gym - a good fitness hoop, 3 lbs, I could go forever.
Well now I'm older and fatter and slower and discoordinated, and that hoop just wants to jump down and bruise up my calves and ankles.
So the internet said that the bigger the hoop, the easier it is to get it going. My hoop is in 8 pieces for easy dismantle and storage, so I ordered another one to add to it and make a bigger hoop. It will be here tomorrow and I anticipate that I will then be hooping like a champ.
