John first started Hula Hooping in 2006 at the age of 53 and soon went on to sell hoops on-line beause very few places sold hoops suitable for adults in those days.
John moved on to teaching Adults at the start of 2007, followed by performing on stage and TV, Yes the Hoop Guy has been seen on ITVs "This Morning" program where he taught Matt Johnson to hoop, plus he has also appeared on "Got to Dance" receiving great comments from Ashley Banjo for his Hoop Dance routine.
A natural progression was to also teach children and this soon provided an opportunity to teach Hula Hooping at Schools, not just to help children acquire a new skill, but also to find a way to bring old-fashioned fitness and fun back to the playground to show children that exercise and fitness can be fun, while at the same time helping to tackle the growing obesity problem.
It helps when teaching at schools to tell the children that John currently has eleven grandchildren (8 boys and 3 girls) with another one on the way !!!
The children seem to like the idea of the "Hooping Granddad" *smiles*
