before ordering
Pick a hoop size based on your ability…hoop profile and your body size below:
a simple fact that will take you far
If you are interested in a good workout, keep in mind that the lighter in weight the hoop is, the more calories you will burn, because you will need to work harder to keep the hoop up in revolution. We use ¾” medium size (40” diameter) hoops in our exercise classes. We only recommend using the 1” hoop if you are experiencing extreme difficulty in keeping the hoop in orbit. The more that you practice, the better you will get at it, each time.

So, if you believe you will need to start with a 1” medium size hoop, we recommend that as you become confident in your practice, you should eventually try a ¾” medium size hoop when learning off-body hooping techniques. Off-body hooping is the practice of manipulating the hoop with your hands, arms, and elbows, lifting it off your body in circular momentum.
hoop size, our standard sizes:

Note: Hoops larger than 40” diameter cannot be shipped and are limited to local pick-up.
