UK Hooping has been set up by Jacqui Smith to standardise and regulate the teaching of hoop exercise in the United Kingdom.


Jacqui is a fitness professional and has been teaching hooping since 2006, achieving Master Trainer status in 2008 with US Bodyhoops worldwide hooping specialist and world master trainer Diana Lopez ( but quickly found out that is was not a recognised qualification in the UK.


As a fitness professional, Jacqui decided that UK reps approval was needed in the United Kingdom for hoooping.  It took over 5 months to achieve UK regulation and procedure status.  The Register of Exercise Professionals Skills Active approval was achieved in 2009.  

Marion Johnson is also a Fitness Instructor has worked with Jacqui from the beginning and now runs the North Training Courses.
