Performance Hoops


   Exerhoop Dance or Performance Hoops: 


Exerhoop Dance and Performance Hoops are ideal for the individual who wants more variety and more challenge in their hooping routine, or intermediate and experienced hoopers.  These hoops are designed for faster paced workout, dance,     tricks and off body moves that require the hoop to be lighter and rotate at a quicker rate. 

Exerhoop dance and Performance hoops are approx 86cm (33") dia and 300gm weight and are designed to give a bit more of a challenge to your hooping routine.

Many more experienced hoopers select these smaller hoops as their preferred performance hoop.

Benefits of the lighter hoops are that they more quickly raise your heart rate and, frankly, do not hurt as much when you smack yourself in the shin or head practicing some of the fun moves involved in hoop dancing.

The Technical Stuff:

   Unfortunately Hoop swing is all about Physics - that boring topic we liked so much at school!!!

   Gravity and the effect it has on Mass plus Friction is what makes a hoop work. 

   The heavier the hoop the greater the effect of Gravity and it falls down.

   The lighter the hoop the less Mass it has and it does not spin well. The smaller diameter, the greater friction area on your body the more it slows down and conversely the larger the diameter of the hoop the less friction area it has on your body the less power you can apply and it falls down.

   For beginners and for exercise there is an optimum design size & weight for the hoop to be effective and Exerhoop Exercise Hulahoops are hand crafted to this optimum formulae.

   Hoops sold in stores often have a diameter smaller than 75cm dia and are very light. That is far too light and small for an adult to spin. Most adults can spin a hoop with a 90cm diameter easily. Exerhoop Hula-Hoops are designed specifically for adults!

   Although we do have children as young a 5 & 6 years old successfully swinging our hoops - see the Photo Gallery

   The friction of the hoop against your body fights the force of gravity to keep the hoop in the air. The tape helps increase the friction. Faster spinning is needed to keep a smaller hoop in contact with your body, your new larger Exerhoop Hula-Hoop can spin more slowly and still stay in the air.

   You may not be able to defy gravity with your Exerhoop Hula-Hoop for long on your first few tries, but the more you practice, the better you will get.

   Soon, you will be shaping your waist, hips and thighs and strengthening your core with a calorie burning workout that is a whole lot of fun. Don't forget to throw on your favourite music to make your hula hooping experience more fun - The Beach Boys are a cool, retro choice - and enjoy this new workout all year round.
