"When I started teaching Powerhoop in New Zealand in 2012, I was blown away how in-demand my classes became. I went quickly from teaching one class per week to ten classes per week and they are bursting at the seams! Many of my original customers are still coming regularly, eight years on." --Amy McAuley, Powerhoop Instructor and Master Trainer

Powerhoop is a full-body workout, with an eye-catching weighted fitness hoop that slims your waist and strengthens your core. Teaching Powerhoop is fun, profitable and rewarding, with high member retention, a quick return on investment and loads of hands-on support. It's a program you will love teaching and your class members will love taking.

If you are a fitness instructor or would like to become one, you will never make a better career decision than learning to teach weighted hoop fitness at the Hooping Academy.

Top three reasons people love teaching fitness:

  1. They can inspire others, and make a difference in the lives of the people they teach
  2. They are active and can stay in great shape
  3. They can set their own hours

Powerhoop Instructors:

  • Love the fun and success of their Powerhoop classes
  • Attract attention for teaching something eye-catching and different
  • Have higher member retention compared to other fitness programs
  • Get choreography videos as part of their licensing subscription
  • Pay discounted prices on hoops and quickly earn back their investment
  • Benefit as product resellers for an additional source of income
  • Bring communities of like-minded people together
  • Make amazing friends whilst getting in great shape

What exactly is the Powerhoop Workout?

The Powerhoop Workout is a revolutionary fitness concept (yes, we get the pun), designed to slim the waist, strengthen the muscles of the lower back and abdomen and tone the muscles in the stomach, glutes, hips and thighs. Powerhooping provides balanced, symmetrical training to the core muscles, which helps maintain spinal stability and alignment. Class members will quickly notice a difference in their posture and muscle tone – and may lose inches in a very short space of time. In addition to slimming the waist, Powerhoop has been proven to improve class attendance and member retention.

Teaching Powerhoop is fun, profitable, and emotionally and physically rewarding – it's a program you will love teaching and your class members will love taking.

I love teaching Powerhoop because the feeling you get watching someone grow in confidence, fitness and health as a result of something they love is priceless! I enjoy the variety, the flexibility and the way Powerhoop classes bring together new communities and form new friendships. It’s more than an exercise class, it’s a way of life.
