Hot n' healthy Christabel, shot by Patrick Roddie (webbery.com)

To get in shape for her October wedding, Dawn-Samantha Cahill, 25, a production coordinator in New York City, tried every exercise routine she could think of. But the upended positions that yoga required made her feel self-conscious. Running on a treadmill was a bore. And lifting weights was just too difficult. Frustrated, Cahill started overeating instead of exercising, and her weight, on a petite, 5-ft. 2-in. frame, ballooned to 212 lb.

Cahill was nearly ready to give up, until one day last spring, she discovered a video on YouTube about hula-hooping. “The woman in the video was so sexy, and the moves she was making with a hula hoop were so cool,” Cahill says. “Normally, watching a gorgeous woman like this would make me feel bad. Instead, I wanted to imitate her.”

Pittsburgh’s Tribune Review takes up HOOPING

Hooping puts latest spin on fitness efforts
By JoAnne Klimovich Harrop, TRIBUNE-REVIEW
June 23, 2009

An excerpt from the article below. Read the full piece here.

**************

HOOPING CVR finalOne of the most well known hoop instructors in the country was hoop-challenged as a child. Christabel Zamor, teacher and author of “Hooping, A Revolutionary Fitness Program” (Workman Publishing, $15.95), didn’t try it again until she was 27.

“Hooping is fun, and anyone can do it,” says the San Francisco Bay area resident. “I guess I am sort of the poster child for hooping, because I was not a natural at it. But I was fascinated with it. One thing led to another, and it has been an incredible journey. I definitely understand the hesitation people may have trying it, because I had doubts of my own. But since I’ve been hooping, my body feels so much better, and I am more confident.”
