Q&A with Kristin Benton, Owner of Happy Hoops

Tell us about your business.

Happy Hoops uses your basic, run of the mill hula hoop to burn fat, tone muscles, and improve cardiovascular function. It is a great, all-body, low-impact workout that allows you to set your own intensity. We believe that everyone can hoop and are proud to boast a 100% success rate in teaching adults to hula hoop

We are absolutely dedicated to the happy part of Happy Hoops. We have only two rules in our classes.

Rule #1: No negative self-talk. Students and instructors are absolutely forbidden to say things like "I can't do this," "I'm terrible at this," or "I’ll never learn this."

Rule #2: We don't say sorry. At some point, your hoop will fly across the room and hit the instructor—just smile, make an animal sound and move on. We even practice our animal sounds at the beginning of the class for good measure. No sorries.

What inspired you to open the fitness studio?

I hate gyms. I hate treadmills. I hate exercise. I hate sweating alone. And I really, really hate being fat. I used hula hooping to lose 40 pounds after our first child and hula hooping is how I lost 30 pounds after our second child. I found I could watch all the TV I wanted as long as I hula hooped the commercial. I got addicted to that and started hula hooping through entire shows. I am utterly convinced that exercise can be fun, and with a hula-hoop it is. The possibilities are limitless, really. No more workouts, just hoopouts!

What’s your favorite spot in the gym, and why?

Have I mentioned that I hate gyms? So, yeah—I like the smoothie bar when I am at a gym.

How did you personally get involved in fitness?

I've done sports competitively my entire life and my dad was an athletic trainer. As an adult, competitive sports just aren't as fun so I needed something different to get and keep myself fit. So, in 2008, when my tattoo artist was inking my arm and told me his wife was teaching hula hoop classes, I immediately signed up for one.

Tell us one interesting fact most people don't know about your business.

10% of all our class and hoop sales support the academic and residential care of an orphan in Port au Prince, Haiti.

What's your favorite workout?

I like off the body hooping combinations that involve shoulders and elbows.

What’s the best food to eat before a workout, and after?

I'm supposed to say lettuce, but I'm gonna be honest. I go for the ice cream.
