This Creekside Hoop is available in a range of sizes and weights.

  • Fitness/Weighted/Heavy: It is not weighted but is made of heavier material to give it enough momentum for beginning hoopers. If you are hooping to strengthen your core, this is your hoop. Best in sizes 30-42″. Available with a push button end or as an infinity collapsible (also known as figure 8). If you are pregnant, a child, bruise easily, or want to do a lot of off-body tricks, this isn’t your hoop, but keep reading! (160 psi PE, 3/4″ which is actually slightly more than an inch thick OD, black)
  • Cardio/Maternity: Great for weight loss, this tubing moves slowly enough for most beginners (especially if you are somewhat fit already), but isn’t quite so heavy, making it easier to speed up for a good sweat session! Best in sizes 28-42″. Available with a push button end or as an infinity collapsible (also known as figure 8). If you are pregnant, a teen or tween fitness hooper, bruise easily, or want to do some off-body work (such as halos, which are fantastic for upper body toning), this is a great starting hoop! (100 psi PE, 3/4″ which is nearly 1″ OD, black)
  • Intermediate/Kids: A great tube for kids because it is tough and inexpensive (for a handmade hoop), this size also works well for adult fitness hoopers who want to keep a faster pace. In fitness classes, I recommend this weight for off-body work. I also recommend this tubing specifically for learning chest and shoulder hooping and leg hooping. I like to use the same hoop diameter I would for waist hooping (which is to say, on the large side) because generally the thighs, chest, and shoulders are about as big around or bigger than the waist, but the lighter tube is gentler on tender areas and springy enough to bounce off the body even when pushes are still uneven. Best in sizes 22-38″, but can be made up to 42″ (it just won’t hold a perfectly flat circle at all times). Available with a push button end, as an infinity collapsible (sizes 36″ and up only), or as a permanent closure (sizes 24″ or smaller only). (125 psi PE, 1/2″ which is close to 3/4″ OD, black)
  • 3/4″ HDPE: While this tube is the same size as Intermediate/Kids tubing, it is much lighter! Made from a denser version of the same material, this tube has thinner walls and a firmer feel, so it makes a fast and responsive hoop! Excellent for flow practice and performance hoopdance, as well as cardio hooping. Best in sizes 16-38″. Comes with a push button closure for sizes over 24″. (HDPE, 3/4″ OD, translucent white)
  • 5/8″ HDPE: This skinny mini is light, fast, and ideal for hand hooping, as well as tricks! To sustain on-body, you will have to really move fast! Great for learning any tricks that involve the hoop coming at your face, like chest rolls or foot hooping. (I know it’s not supposed to come toward your face for foot hooping, but it probably will hit you in the nose a few times while you are learning, and you do NOT want to do that with a Fitness hoop! I speak from experience!) Makes for really light and lovely isolations. Best in sizes 14-36″ (it can be a little floppy at bigger hoop diameters). Comes with a push button closure for sizes over 24″. Because this tube is so skinny, tape designs will look different, and wide tapes may need to be made narrower for a smooth finish. The overall character of the pattern will be as shown and use the same tapes, but some adjustment of proportions may be made. (HDPE, 5/8″ OD, translucent white)

If you are familiar with hooping, you will love the care I put into each of my hoops. If you are not, you may wonder why Creekside Hoops cost so much more than toy store hoops. Besides the craftsmanship, you are getting a much sturdier hoop than you will find in toy stores. Tubing made in the USA is joined with quality materials, not a staple joining cheap plastic made overseas. While Creekside Hoops are much sturdier than toy store hoops, they can still be bent or broken. See Terms.

This hoop is fully taped, so the color of the tubing will not show.
