1. Take hold of the hula hoop.
2. Lower it down to about ankle level.
3. Step into it (with both feet).
4. Bring it up to just below your waist.
5. Hold it with both hands and pull it forward so that it's resting against your back.
6. With both hands, fling the hoop to the left so that its inner edge rolls in a circle around your body. Do this a few times so that you get the feel of it.
They need to have better instructions.........
