I am 5'6" and this it comes up to my hip/ lower abdomen region. If you are a similar height but if you're overweight you would want it to come up closer to your ribs/ chest are depending on how big you are.

i don't think there is a weight limit of any kind but there are ways to measure the correct size hoop which can include girth as well as height of the user. if the hoop is too small it is very difficult to keep it from dropping to the floor.

I assume this question asks if there should be a weight limit of hula hoops. My answer would be yes - I think a very high weight could cause injuries to the back and organs around the waist. (Just an un-educated opinion)

I am 133 lbs. & need to tone certain areas and it is great for me, I also believe that as long as you fit into the hoop itself it will be a great firming tool.

There is not a weight limit printed on the box. The diameter of the hoop is 39.5 inches so you should go by that instead of weight.

answer 9
From what I have learned hooping, the larger and newer you are to hooping, the bigger your hoop should be. I am overweight, and although I am 5 feet, I need a 42 inch hoop until I learn the ropes. This product is 39 inches, ok 100-120 lb range but its quite heavy...be careful though, no more than a 5-10 minute session until you get used to it, or you may bruise your internal organs...

Yes. dvd does very good job. Starts out with a few stretching exercises. Goes on to explain foot positions and moving hips BACK AND FORTH rather than a circular motion that many try and fail with. Then follows thru with a great routine that any beginner can work on. You will be able to make goals with this and I promise, you work on hooping daily and you will loose inches, increase strength and loose weight. Had a friend loose 84 pounds in 1 yr. hooping during commercials during evening tv watching and eating a better diet.

Yes, it does break it down similar to a class. I wouldn't recommend doing the arm rotations if you are close to the TV. I have lost control of it before and it could cause some damage. It is fun!

Yes, the dvd does give instruction on how to hula hoop. I recently learned to hula hoop myself using youtube videos but the same instructions were given on the dvd. I thought I had to move my hips in a circular motion but that isn't necessary; a side to side or front to back motion are all that you need to keep the hula hoop going. Good luck!

I found it shockingly large. I don't think I am exaggerating when I say the diameter of the hoop is about as round as a quarter due to the padding, which feels nice between your fingers, but hard against your middle due to the weight of the hoop.

i measured the circumference - it's about 4.5 inches around. this equates to a diameter of about 1.4 inches. most suggest tubing about 3/4 to 1 inch but those are not padded (which adds considerably to the measurement).

Question

Does the weight of the hoolahoop make a difference

I looked on line before buying my new danskin holahoop and I knew when I bought it it was only 2.5 lbs.
I had read before that it depends on a persons weight and what what the hoop should be is that true?

thanks
