Rated 5 out of 5 by JaneP Fun and challenging
First, you need to make sure that the pieces are put together properly; I thought it was and when I started to use it, it fell apart. I needed my husband to push it together, and once properly locked in, it works just fine. More challenging than a traditional hoop that we used as kids. You definitely know it's weighted and actually, I had read that it can cause bruising on the hip area when first using, indeed, I bruised which then caused me not to use as often, because it hurt. Bottom line, use in moderation, don't go nuts at first like I did, otherwise you too will bruise! It works, you'll have fun and feel good after a workout. Rather than sitting down watching tv, get up and use your hoop!!
Rated 1 out of 5 by lilypickles Worst purchase ever from QVC
Would give no stars. Received broken and a piece was missing. Returned immediately.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Muffy Fitness Hoop needs slight do-over
I like fitness hoop exercise, but for some reason your product is more difficult to keep going as long as I would like as other hoops I have had. I don't know if it is the smooth surface or what. I also do not like the odor from the material it is made of.
Rated 5 out of 5 by SusieQ Perfect easy exercise
Great product. If you have back pain and it hurts to do ab workouts (eg. Curls), this is really good for working your core. My stomach has gotten smaller and tighter. And when you aren't really in the mood for "a workout", this is a really easy way to workout. After you get used to the pain, it doesn't hurt the days after that and you really get a workout out of it without even realizing it. It alsoxandenwith a DVD where you can workout with the hula hoop with the instructor, which was nice since it didn't mention anything about having that DVD. I would definitely recommend this. When you assemble it correctly, it stays together. Just remember to alternate the colors
