Hello! My name is Abby, and I am President and Founder of Hoola Monsters, LLC – a company that specializes in professional fitness hoops, hoop dance classes and performances. I am a full-time hoop dance instructor, hoop crafter and performer who has been teaching hoop dance since 2007. In August of 2010, I left an 8-year marketing and public relations career to pursue Hoola Monsters full-time. I now travel all over the country teaching hoop dance workshops and performing, and I'm honored and humbled to say that I have been featured as a hoop dance expert in media outlets such as Better Homes & Garden Magazine, the Washington Post and NBC’s nationally syndicated show, Daytime, to name a few. Hooping is my passion, and I've spent years developing and implementing my hoop dance curriculum. I love watching my students grow and thrive, while accomplishing fitness goals that they never thought were possible. My innovative approach to teaching hoop dance merges trick-based technique with flow practice. I am thrilled to unveil Hoola-Fit in March of 2012, and I describe it as “mindful hoop movement combined with creative dance expression." My goal is to have Hoola-Fit in gyms and fitness centers nation-wide! For more information about me and my hoop fitness program, please check out www.hoola-fit.com. ... read more.
