It almost seems too good to be true: hula hooping counting as exercise? But it's true. Add a bit of weight to a hula hoop and suddenly your waistline will feel the burn! Scroll down to check out our top ten favorite weighted hula hoops.
Soft, non-toxic foam cushions the strong adjustable tube sections to create a hoop customized to your needs. Simply snap the pieces together and go. Seven sections will give you a hoop of 2.8lbs, eight sections equals 3.2lbs.
Eight sturdy, padded sections snap together easily to form a 37-inch hoop, or if you want a more difficult workout, use six sections to make a 28-inch hoop. When you're finished, the pieces fit neatly in a handy carrying case.
If you're looking to up your game a little, the ridges added to this Sports Hoop design offer a bit of a midsection massage as you hula.
We love that there's an exercise hoop in medium and small sizes (this one can be 24 or 28 inches) that doesn't sacrifice any of the weight customization available in larger hoops.
Add as much weight as you like to each sturdy section, plug the hole, then they click together easily. We particularly love the comfortable foam that grips your body as you hula.
Wrapped in soft silicone foam, the Bala ring is built for an efficient arm workout. Try twirling this 10-lb ring, or you can lift and swing it like you would with hand weights.
Another detachable hoop option, Hoola Hoop's design puts its emphasis on the rubberized texture of its sections, so while you're challenging yourself with the weight distribution, you don't have to worry about the hoop falling off your hips!
For a totally unique experience, this hoop from Dochi Queen is not as rigid as the other picks on our list! Wrap it around your waist twice for an easier workout or just once for a trickier one.
If balance isn't your strong suit, there's no need to worry with this hoop. Simply secure it around your waist and hula so that the weighted bulb twists around!
This durable hoop boasts an 0.8mm stainless steel inner tube padded with soft EVA foam. You can adjust the weight, anywhere from 2.2 to 11 pounds for a great workout.
