Meet Perry Jo. When he’s not busy tending to the toes and (ahem) other parts of customers at his pedicure and waxing salon, Estella Nails, on Broad Street in Shrewsbury, the athletic Jo takes it to the hoop.
The hula-hoop, that is.
Though he joked that it bruises his ribs, Jo says he tried hula-hooping recently after a friend recommended it as a way to relieve pain in his hamstrings, which tighten up during hours of on-the-job sitting.
“Hopefully, it’s going to make me more healthy,” he says.
The Accidental Photographer came across Jo practicing outside his shop last week, but he insisted we come inside for the photo.
