While all of our hoops are a great choice for exercise, these hoops are designed with working out in mind! We craft these hoops with the same 3/4″ 100psi PE hoop tubing we use to craft our beginner hoops, but we use a heavier duty grip tape than our beginner hoops for a smidge of added weight.
These hoops weigh approximately 1 to 1.5 pounds, but their weight varies depending upon the diameter you choose.
These hoops don’t have unnecessary weights added. We don’t believe in excessively heavy hula hoops. They could be harmful to your body. You can read more about how much exercise hula hoops should weigh in our Hoop Resources section: How Heavy Should Your Hoop be to Lose Weight Hula Hooping?
We are happy to build your weighted exercise hula hoop in any custom size you like. If you aren’t sure what size to get, read this: What Size Hula Hoop Should I Get?
These hoops collapse down infinity-style to about 1/4 of their total size for convenient traveling! Check out our blog post here about how to fold and unfold your infinity collapsible hoop.

Rarely, we will need to use a different color of tape or tubing than what you purchased if we run out of the color you chose. We reserve the right to do this at any time. We will always try to find a similar color to what you chose. If you do not want us to do this please write “no substitutions” in the notes during checkout on your order and we will notify you if we are out of a color so you can decide to wait until we get more or choose a different color. Also, when you order, you can write your backup color choices in the notes if you choose.
I love my exercise hoop! It’s beautiful and very well made. It’s perfect for a beginner who is looking to lose weight. I highly recommend it!

I bought my very first hula hoop on May 30, 2014 from Ruby Hooping. It was an exercise hoop that I have since named “Big Blue”. In a little over a month, I lost 14 lbs using only my hoop for exercise and I am in love with it! For someone as large as I am, it is imperative that I have a low-impact workout so that I do not further damage my joints and hooping is definitely the answer for me. I also would like to say that Lindsay is very professional and her hoops are of great quality. I will never buy from anyone else!

As a kid I couldn’t do it and figured it was because I was too fat and gave up. And I even got it to stay up longer than this and was definitely sweating. Lol. I felt childishly proud of myself. But it’s nice to realize you *can* do something you gave up on as a kid. Thank you!!
I can’t say enough about this company – this woman! – or my hoops! I ordered the pink and silver exercise hoop and accidentally got shipped a green one (equally gorgeous, by the way!) by mistake. She immediately righted this without any hesitation and was incredibly helpful both before I ordered (we specialized mine to fit my needs), and afterwards, as I’ve never been a successful hooper as a child. Even now, I have some difficulty, but have gotten so much amazing feedback and support/encouragement from Ruby Hooping that keeps me trying. <3 I can't suggest this company enough for your hooping needs.
My new exercise hoop is awesome! It is very bright. Although I thought it was going to be weighted a little it feels like my performance hoop. It is lighter than my first beginner hoop. I am not complaining one bet was just unsure.. other than the weight I love it! The Orange is very bright and prettiful (:

I was gifted a hoop by my partner and I loved it so much that I had to buy another one! I love how high quality these hoops are and how much attention and care is put into making them. The weight is also great because I know I’m getting a good workout without the risk of damaging any internal organs. These hoops taught me that anyone can hula hoop no matter size, mobility, etc! The size chart works great for deciding which hoop to buy so I recommend checking it out first.
Lindsay makes great products! Always made exactly how ordered and shipped in a timely manner. If you need help with sizing or have questions about what you’re ordering, she’s more than willing to have a conversation with you to make sure you get exactly what you’re looking for. Will always be a #rubyhooper

I was searching online for a hula hoop during pandemic. I did not want a real heavy hoop. After looking at Ruby Hooping website I was very pleased with informative information provided. I ordered a few hoops and they were exactly what I wanted. They took awhile to get because of high demand. I was kept in the hoop about the status of my order. I would order from them again.
