Free weekly hula hoop fitness class in Poway

POWAY (KUSI) – A free weekly fitness class is being offered in Poway but it’s not your typical exercise class. Its called hula hoop fitness.

The founder of Holistic Hoop Fitness Plus, Julie Clemmons, puts on a free class every Wednesday at 10 a.m. at the Poway library.

Clemmons says the experience goes beyond fitness.  In many cases she says it is therapeutic. She found it is even helping people with special needs as they too are able to hula hoop in some form. Clemmons makes all of the hula hoops used during the class. She also sells them.

Having been so affected by the synagogue shooting, Clemmons says she wants to contribute a portion of her hula hoop sales the Friendship Circle, the nonprofit that was established by Lori Kaye, the victim of the synagogue shooting.

The free hoop fitness class happens every Wednesday at 10 a.m. at the Poway library. For more information email hoopmother@gmail.com  or call 858-442-6391.
