I really enjoy making hula hoops because:
- It’s not messy
- It doesn’t require many tools
- It doesn’t take very long
- Anyone can do it!
Okay, I realize the line between need and want is a fine line. So the word “need” is being used loosely here. There are just certain things we need as hoopers!
If you’re new to hooping but already know it will be a life long obsession, this list is for you.
Or, if you’re looking for some great gift ideas for the hula hooper in your life, this article should help you out as well.

If you’ve ever seen a hula hooping video go viral on Facebook, it might remind you of back when you were 10 years old and could hula hoop forever, and then you wonder, “Well why can’t I hula hoop anymore?”
And then you feel really old.
Because you mistakenly assume that you either have to be a 10 year old kid or in extremely good physical shape to learn how to hula hoop.
Honestly, I’ve heard it all. All the reasons why people think they can’t hula hoop.
The truth is, none of these are valid reasons for not hula hooping.
I’m 35. I never could hoop in my life until I was almost 30 years old.
If you are an expecting mom wondering “Can I hula hoop while pregnant?” you are not alone. We get this question all the time! We decided to get answers for you from our community.

Short answer: YES. Yes gurl, you can hula hoop if you are fat, skinny, tall, short, young, or old!
When I started Ruby Hooping five years ago, I was a, shall we say, curvy woman who had been writing about plus-size fitness for a few years. I had made it my mission in life to show the world that we curvy ladies can do anything we set our minds to, and that we should not allow our physical size to be an excuse not to live life to its fullest.
Got the indoor hooping blues? Stormi Kammer, sponsored hooper at Ruby Hooping, has some words of wisdom about how to keep the hoop fire burning all winter long.
A note from Linz: Yes, Florida hoopers, we know you’re all rejoicing that you can finally hoop outside. Yaaaaay for you guys 😉 For the rest of the world, we’re all super bummed that mother nature is not going to be making it easy for us to hoop freely for the next several months.

We receive this question at least once a week! So, Ruby Hooping has invited hoop dance instructor and speaker Missy Cooke to write a guest blog post for this topic! So can you hula hoop with a back injury? The answer is YES!
Here at Ruby Hooping, one of our favorite things to do is talk about all the wonderful hula hooping benefits we all enjoy as part of this beautiful lifestyle. We asked our Street Team member Stormi Kammer to write us an article about how hula hooping helped her to quit smoking forever!
One of the most frequent questions I get from people who see me out at a park with my hula hoops or see me posting videos on my Facebook page is: “Is hula hooping good for you?” The answer is a resounding YES! I asked my brand new sponsored hooper, Alisa Willcox (aka Iris Dragonfly) to write me up an article giving her take on this subject!
We sponsored six hoopers in 2014. Jackie Adams is one of them. She is a force to be reckoned with in the hooping community, and practically a household name in the Curvy Hoopers world! We are so proud to have her on our team! Watching her journey unfold has been inspiring for many, so we asked her to write a blog post about her experiences with hula hooping. This is what she came up with.
