About this video Salina Hudak says:

“This is a video of me from when I first picked up my hula hoop to my 2 years. Hoop dance is my life. I wouldn’t be the person I am today if it wasn’t for hula hooping. 2 years ago i weighed 175 lbs. I was really unhappy with myself. Then one day I saw a video of my idol Brecken Rivara and thought it was coolest thing ever. I started getting obsessed with watching hoop dance. Never thought a person like me could ever do that. Then one day on christmas I got a hula hoop. I tried it out and gave up because I couldn’t even hoop around my waist…Then i gave it another go. Since then my confidence and self esteem just bloomed. I started losing weight too. Alot of it. I lost a total of 70 lbs in 5 months! I didn’t work out at the gym and i never changed my diet. It was all from hoop dance. Its such a great work out but since it was so much fun it never felt like i was working out. Hooping made me the person I am today. Im more outgoing and happy. I’ve turned into this huge beam of light! I hope to one day own my own studio and teach and inspire other people like others did for me.I have even done performances now and performed at events. I would also like to start performing as a profession.. I hope this inspires someone like I did 2 years ago. Just get up and do it! It might change your life like it did to mine :)”
