The Beginning

For Erica Preston, founder and driving force behind Hoop to the Rhythm, hooping is about more than just exercise. It’s a huge part of her life. She picked up her first adult hoop in 2011 and is now committed to sharing her love of this unique form of expression with her friends, family, and community. She began as a FXP® Hula Hoop® Fitness trainer, evolved to creating and teaching dance classes, and strives to reconnect clients with their own flow, working with creative movement, to build strength, flexibility, and confidence.


Erica is an AFAA certified fitness instructor, ACE certified health coach and a certified Hoop Love Coach. Drawing on this strong foundation in exercise theory and safe practice, she began teaching private and group classes in 2017. For Erica, it’s all about how music, art, and dance inspire the ways we occupy and move through space.


In addition to being an instructor, hooper, wife, and mother, Erica is a humanitarian at heart who strives to lead by example. She’s recently discovered a new creative outlet in graphic and fashion design. Since starting her one-of-a-kind line of hoop dance inspired apparel, she’s been using the proceeds to raise money for charities. When she’s not in the studio, she enjoys spending time with her family, traveling and gardening.
