Hooping Chicago with Ali G

Al Gae Hooping One of our favorite videos of 2012 rolls in right before the end of the year. There just isn’t anything about it that we don’t love. Dynamic hooping, beautiful scenery, epic cinematography – it transcends the genre of hooping videos to become something of a short film featuring the hoop stylings of Ali G., aka Alison Guse, as she spins her way beautifully around the Windy City of Chicago, Illinois. Filmed by Alex Halstead and Tom Herbert, and edited by Halstead – quite brilliantly I might add – the soundtrack is “Number Fourteen” by Gladkill and it’s available for purchase on iTunes. Ali lives in Denver, Colorado, USA. A Hooping.org Video of the Day.

Does diet play into Leasa’s fitness plan? “I’m a horrible eater,” she told a KDVR reporter, “You eat good things, you eat bad things, but that’s why you work out!” Watch her news video interview below:
