What Kind of Results Can I Expect?
“The use of a Powerhoop weighted hoop for 6 weeks was associated with a slimmer waistline and hips. The change in skinfold measures suggest a redistribution of body mass.” -Stuart McGill PhD, and Jordan Andersen BSc, Faculty of Applied Health Sciences, University of Waterloo, Canada

FIVE PERCENT CHALLENGE: Five percent off your hoop, five percent off your waist. Risk-Free. Guaranteed.
• Save 5% off a Powerhoop Deluxe or Powerhoop Classic at the POWERHOOP SHOP by entering the code FIVEPERCENT during checkout (£30 minimum order).
• Download your POWERHOOP SIX-WEEK PROGRESS CHART and check out this tutorial on HOW TO MEASURE YOUR BODY. It's important to check your progress with a tape measure - not a scale! The abdominal muscles you build weigh more than fat, so you might not notice as much progress in pounds as you do in inches.
• Start the Challenge! Record your baseline measurements, and divide by 1.05 for your goal measurements. Example: If your waist size is 90 cm, your goal is 90 / 1.05 = 85.7
• Now simply follow the instructions on the chart and prepare to be amazed. If after the challenge you would like to return your hoop for a full refund (yes, we'll even refund your return postage!), just send it back. Include your chart, your return shipping cost and a note requesting the refund. Send to: Mail Shot International, Hille Business Estate, 132 St Albans Road, Watford, Herts WD24 4AE.
Weight loss: 2st 3lb (31 lbs)
“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."
-Jo Hedges, age 44, Cambridgeshire, England
Weight loss: 4.5 stone (63 lbs)
"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."
-Beverley Burn, age 40, Newcastle, England
"I felt I needed to write in and tell you how much I am loving Powerhoop. The classes are so much fun - I smile the whole way through. The difference to my body is absolutely incredible - I have lost several inches.
I didn't think I would be fitting into clothes I wore before having two children, but I am so happy and confident with my body now, thanks to Powerhoop."
-Melissa Bond, Welling, England
Weight loss: 10 stone (140 lbs)

"From the first moment I tried a Powerhoop, I knew this was something special. I have struggled to find an exercise that I enjoyed and fell in love with Powerhooping from the first class. I used to suffer terrible sciatica since having my three kids. I have not had any problems with it ever since starting hooping over 5 years ago. I love what Powerhoop has done for my body, my core has never been stronger and my body has never been stronger. Not only that, but my confidence has grown so much. Powerhooping is one of the best things that has happened to me."
-Amy McAuley, Glasgow & New Zealand
Weight loss: 2.5 st (35 lbs)
"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!"
Nicola Galloway, age 37, Newcastle, England
-Sheila Barclay, age 52 / Alan Barclay, age 48, Perth, Scotland
Weight loss: 2 stone, 2 lbs (30 lbs)
"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."
-Sarah Coldwell, age 24, Yorkshire, England
"Powerhoop is an ideal way to build stability around your back, because your abdominal muscles need to constantly tighten up in order to keep the hoop in motion. I can’t recommend Powerhoop enough - it’s a very effective training tool that makes exercise fun." -Mette Ron Christensen, Physiotherapist, Copenhagen
“I'm so happy with my Powerhoop that I tell all of my friends and colleagues. My problem areas are my waist, stomach and hips, and I see a clear improvement. I use my hoop about 10 minutes per day and have lost 10 cm around my waist in the past two months. It's noticeable enough that I'm getting comments about it from others." -Anne-Kari Simonsen, age 56, Kongsberg, Norway
"Just wanted to say a huge thank you!! I have never found an exercise that I could stick with due to the fact I have never enjoyed exercising, went to a Powerhoop class and am absolutely obsessed, have just ordered a hoop so I can practise at home." -Fidelma Burton, Watford UK
“Out of all the classes I do Powerhoop gives the best results by far. I teach classes and training courses for Powerhoop and use it in my PT sessions. My clients love it and are shocked by the results they have got from using a Powerhoop regularly. Anyone serious about fitness should be using a Powerhoop.” -Kerry Ferguson, Powerhoop Instructor & Trainer, UK
"I've lost 11 lbs in 6 weeks and several centimetres off various areas! I couldn't have done it without Tania's amazing classes. I've never really enjoyed exercise but I love Powerhoop. Thank you!" -Ruth Cresswell, Cambridgeshire
