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 has worked with Jacqui from the beginning and now runs the North Training Courses.
