Getti has loved hula hooping since she received her first hoop from her sister at the age of eleven, and grew up training for many different acts in the circus. She is now the record holder for largest hula hoop spun with a measurement of 5.18 m (17 ft 0.25 in) in diameter.
She now has over 30 years of experience and incorporates it into her everyday fitness routine.
Because of the current global climate, Getti has tried to find ways to help others by offering online classes for people to stay active even indoors.
This includes teaching several classes and ecnouraging others to try a new unique form of exercise like hula hooping!
Getti mentions that hula hooping has added benefits aside from just toning the body. It can also improve moods, fight anxiety, help the heart stay healthy, relieve stress, boost blood circulation, and as an added bonus - hooping will improve one’s overall coordination, balance and posture.
Now more than ever she hopes to use her record to promote all the feats that can be achieved at home, which is exactly how she obtained her first Guinness World Records title.
She encourages that the qualities of staying fit at home have substantial overlap with record breaking.
“You have to be brave. You have to work very hard and be fearless. Anything is possible as long as you set your mind to it.”
