I am asked many times, where can I buy hula hoops for exercise? People also are curious about the 1.5kg heavy padded hula hoops that are out in the market which are targeted for weight loss and fitness. When I started hooping I was swayed into buying one of these 1kg hoops which ended up feeling way too heavy and left my waist bruised. Hooping with these hoops only limited me to hula hooping on the waist which wasn’t exciting enough for me to continue.
It wasn’t until I bought my first proper dance hoop that the wonderful world of hoop dance stumbled upon my door and absolutely stole my heart! My new dance hoop allowed me to learn to explore hoop dance and learn all of these amazing moves which made me work up a sweat. I soon then realized that this is the perfect activity for me to keep in shape.
