What is your name and tell us a little bit about yourself?
My name is Devon Foxall and I am the newest member of the Hoopstarz team! I rent my own flat in Gateshead I have lived there for 4 years now and I am still optimistically hoping that a puppy will come and join me as I LOVE dogs. I also love keeping fit, I go to the gym to weight train 5 times a week and have lots of friends in the bodybuilding and fitness industry, very rarely you will find me without my fitbit! At the weekends you can usually find me on long walks, having food and drinks with friends, chilling with a face mask and having spa afternoons or participating in activities such as boxing, yoga, trampolining and crazy golf. I also have a big passion for baking (got to have balance, right?) I am always testing out recipes and regularly bake weekend cake boxes, tray bakes and celebration cakes for friends and family.
How did you get involved with Hoopstarz?
I recently started a Level 2 child fitness qualification and I was searching for a company I could go to in school holidays so that I would be able to use my new skills. I came across Hoopstarz online. I spoke to Tracey over email then we met, and she was able to offer me an amazing opportunity- to join Hoopstarz and help the team build the franchise. I decided to hand in my notice as a teacher and begin a new journey!
What are you most looking forward to about working with Hoopstarz?
I don’t know where to start here because I have been super lucky to join a supportive and positive team and they have got me SO excited about everything. I can’t wait to put my passion of working with children together with my passion for fitness. I’m excited to see children gain confidence, enjoy themselves and improve key skills outside of the classroom within the Hoopstarz sessions.
Where do you want to be in 6 months?
In 6 months, I want to have perfected all the hula tricks, practice makes perfect so if you see a girl hula hooping around the streets of Gateshead… don’t be alarmed, it’s me! I also want to be delivering my own Hoopstarz days and events as well as hopefully going around the country helping franchises deliver sessions!
Tell us how you feel after your first official few days at Hoopstarz!
Happy (so so happy), positive and excited! I have loved every second so far and I can’t wait for the future with Hoopstarz (:
