FAQ

  • Do I have to finish the course in 4 weeks?

    No! Our online courses are entirely self-paced and you have access to them for the 'lifetime' of the course. This course is a replication of the content Caitlyn teaches in her face-to-face weekly courses, run over 4 weeks. Feel free to go as slow (or as fast) as you like!

  • I don't have a hula hoop yet. How does the free hoop work?

    Once you have purchased the online course, you will be able to login and begin right away. Included with this course is a $30 voucher, redeemable within the SpinJoy store. Your code has to be set up and emailed to you manually. We try to get these out to you as quickly as possible but it may take a few hours (we're usually on opposite time zones over here in Australia). If you're new to hula hooping, we recommend you use this to purchase a Body Rock Dance Hoop with inner circumference grip tape (valued at $30 AUD). Feel free to have a browse though, something else might catch your eye. www.spinjoy.com.au/shop *Postage is not included

  • I'm not sure what size hula hoop to get. Please help me!

    We're more than happy to recommend the perfect hula hoop. Shoot us an email at info@spinjoy.com.au with your height and dress/shirt size and we'll tell you what we think is awesome.

Awesome ! Good visuals, well explained. I really benefited from the explanations of what might be going wrong and how to fix the problems. I liked that you could watch the videos over and over, and how you could jump here and there between lessons...

Great for beginners and hoopers at all stages

Bailey Harris

I had a good base for hooping. I could waist hoop and also over head. But this course helped me to build on those skills. Easy to understand. Great course for beginners. Also good refresher and back to basics course for more experienced hoopers
