I've had this Hoop for at least 2 years perhaps 3 Loved it so much I bought about 5 more for family members....I've had absolutely NO problem with this hoop....I've read reviews where people were saying hoop would not stay together...None of our hoops have a problem and we hoop lots and lots
1 or more hours almost everyday for me....Love the hoop and the workout.....It only took me about 1 week to keep the hoop going....A bit of practice is all it took....What I love about this hoop is I can take it apart and take it with me....Very easy to assemble....and really is a great price....If your lower back hurts a bit you aren't in the correct posture....Once you get going it's so easy and you feel great afterwards.....BEST hoop I have found so far.....
I am thoroughly pleased with the Gold's Gym Hoop! It was simple to to assemble. You must make sure to snap the ends (listen for the click). The first two days, my waist was sore from the weight of the hula, but it's all good now! I use the hoop every day from 20-45 minutes. When I'm rushed I'll get a quick 10 minutes in. It's important to me to use it every day regardless of how much time I have. I find the best time to hula is during some of favorite TV shows after work. It's rather easy to hula for 30-45 minutes. I've had the hoop for a week now and already see the difference. Lost 3 pounds! Of course, I'm watching what I eat and drinking plenty of water. When I realized that i could burn as many calories in 30 minutes as I did walking, I opted for the hula. Simple and fun way to shed the inches and pounds!
I love this hoop! It is helping me on my new weight loss journey. It was very easy to assemble. You just have to put a little force behind it when you snap the pieces in place. I was going to purchase a hoop from another online retailer, but their hoops were more than 30 dollars and there were crazy shipping fees. This hoop was priced perfectly and I did site to store, so no shipping charges! It also came with a dvd that's about 15min long. I would definitely recommend to others.
It's really easy to snap together and start using right away. It only took a few goes before both my husband and I had the old rhythm again. I started feeling it right away and noticed trimming and toning within a week. It's awesome! I know that I will get a lot of use out of this well into the future. I grab it every time I have a spare minute or if I'm up to the challenge of watching a whole tv show while hooping. Give yourself a wide berth, it swings wide. We accidentally tossed the DVD with the box but I thought it was cool that they came together. If you have dogs make sure they understand what you're doing. Mine got whacked trying to save me from the hoop - lol!
Just got my new hoop.I love it!!! BUT I will warn new users to pace yourself and for the first few days ONLY do about 1-2 minutes each direction.After a few days you can start adding abit more time. You will get sore and bruised BUT if you keep your time minimal starting out it will minimize the discomfort and bruises. Its been a week and I can now use it with NO issues whatsoever !!
Its easy to use, there is a CD to help you with your workout. When you're done using it you can take it apart to put away.
So far I love it. Haven't had it long enough to know how effective it is. But it's fun. Only problem I have is you have to make sure you have a heavy shirt on or it can make your sides sore.
I have been trying to find a good hoop for exercising and this one is heavy enough to let this old-timer have a hooping good time!
Playing with nieces on thanksgiving I was showing them how to move your hips to keep the hola hoop going and the 5 minute I was doing this it got me to thinking..wow my stomach is feeling this workout and I told them i was getting one to add to my ab workout they laughed but guess what? I got one and this one is awesome w/2.5lbs added to it. you will feel it.
A friend of mine has this, and I just loved it, I gained a lot of weight around my stomach and looked pregnant, So today I went and got one. And after using it for a few min's I can already feel the pain. Love it. Just remember when your putting it together that you listen for the click or it will fall apart for you. Extremely easy to put together and easy to use, even if you don't think you can use it, just remember that kids plastic thing will never stay up for us adults. You just have to get this, and remember if you don't like it you can always take it back. Although I firmly believe that you will love it just as much as everyone else on here that have left a great review. Best Wishes.
I tried hooping with one like I had when I was a kid. Not a chance. Then a friend told me I need a weighted one around 40" diameter. I found this one at sports authority and dicks for twice the price. Walmart had it at a great rate, so I ran over and got it. Been using it 3 days now. My sides feel a little bruised, But my stomach muscles are already sore. I can only spin it maybe 50 times at a shot so I have to work up the strength to get the full effect I want. I also use it one my arms. They are sore too. I love this thing. It's fun and easy to make time to do, unlike going to the gym and riding a bike or walking a tread mill.
I love this product it was very easy to put together and i was using it in minutes.
I've been searching for something to work my waist-line a bit more and remembered having a hula hoop when I was a child. After researching, I came across the Golds Gym Fitness Hoop that was weighted. The weighted hoop works the waist much better than a childs hoop or a hoop that is not weighted. Just put on a CD, and hoop to the music. It was very easy to put together and also included suggestive ways to use the equipment. Since using the hoop, I can tell that my core is harder and my waist is getting smaller.
I hula hooped as a child and because of that I thought I would pick it right up again. NOT, I couldn't even keep it up for 1 rotation on the day I got it. That was a week ago today. If you have trouble just keep practicing. I have now done 60 rotations. Just don't give up. You can really feel it in your core, legs & butt. It will get your heart rate up too. It seems to be made well. For the price you can't beat it.
Easy to put together and very easy to use. Comes with an instructional DVD that explains several different exercises. I'm over fifty and this is much easier on some of my joints than my dance DVD. Very satisfied with this!
A friend of mine, who has lost quite a bit of weight, shared her secret with me - a weighted hula hoop! Since I've always loved to hula hoop, and get very bored with other exercises, I thought I'd give it a try. Success! It's fun, and it works. I've ben using it for almost a week, and have lost 3 pounds and can feel a difference in my clothes from the toning up. I love it!
I do like this hoop. After a few attempts I was able to keep it going for quite a while. I had not used one of these in years. I am 54 and suffer from Fibromyalgia and want to try and get in shape. It does cause bruising around the waist for about a week and then it seems to adjust. I can use it for 30 minutes a day and truly feel a soreness in the core. I would get this again and I will continue trying to get better with it.
Easily put together , durable and great value for the price.
Can't tell if it's help taking any weight off yet but it feels good as I'm exercising with it the results are sure to follow!
Yes, the first week you use it you will feel a bit bruised but after your mid-section becomes accustomed to the hoop you will no longer experience any discomfort. It's fun and works up a moderate sweat. I've used it two weeks and I can now go a full 20 minutes!
If you enjoy having your insides feel like they are being beaten then maybe this is for you. I finally broke down an purchased thinking it would be a fun addition to my work outs. Wow was I wrong after a few times around I felt like a had been beaten up lol. 2.5 pounds banging around you might not seem like much...But it is. I can actually take pain but this was brutal!
