Hello guys I’m very excited to show you what I got today because it’s the one thing I always like to do! If you read all my weight loss related posts before (thank you very much!! 🙂 you will know that I always play hula hoop, and I started losing weight with the help of a hulahoop!
I love hula hoop so much because it is super convenient and I can exercise anytime and anywhere. It’s very hard for me when I have to work + school and I really have no time to exercise so the only thing I can do frequently is hula hooping. Imagine the time I sit during work and school, I really want to prevent the growth of a tummy so hula hooping is really my best friend!
Another thing is whenever I want to go out for a walk or run, it has to rain! So with a hula hoop it really helps me to exercise in my crib!
The best hula hoop I have ever used is my friend’s mother’s one, and it’s like those strings of HUGE beads linked together and you play it like a hulahoop. I don’t even know if you understand what I’m saying but story is: I broke that.
Since then I have been using a wooden hula hoop which is THIS:
When I started playing this, I had bruises.. well it’s wood! I tried looking around for an alternative but they are always those that are very light weighted ones.. (like those probably you can look for in markets) So I give up and stick to this for 8years. Wow I feel so old. Another thing is this cannot be dissembled and I always get nagged by my grandmother cos I always threw it around after I’m done. Zzz.
But today I’m very excited!!! Because why?? I got new HULAHOOPS TO PLAY WITH!! Before I go on with my honest opinions on this hulahoops, tell me if you want to try playing them I can lend you for a week then you can buy your own. Lol!
I will also be showing you what Simon and I have been wearing when we go out for hiking or walks! So please continue reading! =D
Here I’m holding like 4 hulahoops but actually I got 8 plus 1 arm hoops! Arm hoops??!?! Yes. You read me. I can also tone my arms now!!
But before I talk about the arm hoops which is super amazing.. I even ask my grandmother to play.. I’m going to go through the different types of hoops I have right now!
The top top top reason why I love these hula hoops is because they can be disassembled! This is so good because I can just break them into the respective parts and store them without my living room looking like a mess, and I just need to assemble them again whenever I need to!
And I have always wanted to have a hula hoop at Simon’s place so now this thought is settled! =D
I have 8 different types of hula hoops to show you today! I’m sure one of it will suit you. 😀
Among all, this is the easiest to assemble. It’s not too heavy nor light, I think the weight is perfect too. Just to warn you, if you are a beginner you may keep dropping the hula hoop, and sometimes it will drop on your feet! Magic’s weight is kinda perfect in a sense that it’s not too heavy to make you pain when it drops or too light that you don’t feel anything when you play.
Solid-1000 consists of 6 separate parts which can be connected together easily with the fast locking mechanism.
Above diagram shows how I assemble the hula hoops.
There is a ‘button’, I just press it down and push it into the other hole. Very easy and fast! Probably 1-2mins?
Next I have the Smooth Foam Hoops:
This weighted one is foam-made and more rubbery to the touch.
The Solid-1000 seems to shake more faster than this one maybe because of the different material being used.
I personally prefer the Solid-1000 as compared to this because I have to shake faster to keep it on my waist, in this way I also sweat faster.
3. Smooth Foam Hula Hoop: Smooth Foam 1.1KG, 100cm (above) and Smooth Foam 750g, 90cm (below)
This hoop is easily adjustable to suit both male and female users, if males are bigger sized then they can use this too.
Many of you asked where I usually buy Hulahoops, and the last time I think I mentioned was Paragon. If you really want to buy hula hoops then you should buy these types that can be kept in your storeroom! The previous time I bought the wood one, I actually carry the whole thing home alone, a lot of people were staring at me, I definitely don’t want that to happen again even though it’s quite fun. Lol!
By the way I actually think that the above 3 that I showed are more suitable for beginners because they are not so heavy. So if you already are playing hula hoop and are used to the weight then you can look at these!
4) Adjustable Weight Hula
This one is amazing because you can build up the weight of your hula! I just put the iron filling into the hole then I just connect the parts together by pressing the ‘button’. It’s very easy and fast and you can adjust the weight from 3LB to 5LB depending on how heavy you want it to be. This can really strengthen the stomach muscles by the way.
And if you don’t like this, I also have the massage types!
These 4 hula hoops all have massage balls on them and the difference about them is their weight.
The Orange one is 1.1KG Diameter 108cm Pipe Diameter 3.5cm
The Pink one is 1.45KG Diameter 110cm Pipe Diameter 3.5cm
The Yellow one is 1.60KG Diameter 110cm Pipe Diameter 4cm
The Blue one is 1.70KG Diameter 110cm Pipe Diameter 4.25cm
On the box it was recommended to play for 20minutes a day. The massage balls inside the pipe will slim your waist and massage your muscle, the magnet inside the pvc ball provides acupressure and also promote blood circulation.
After seeing so many types of hula hoops, do you feel like trying them out? I really think you should start playing hula if you have no time to exercise, if you have time to watch tv then you definitely have the time to play hula hoop because you can do this 2 things together!
That’s my favourite thing to do, watch my favourite drama show and play hula hoop!
It also helps to get rid of belly fats which are like the number one or two concerns for us ladies!
For me, my number one concern is actually my limbs! Other than thighs, next problem for me, my arms! So when I saw this arm hoops together with the other hula hoops, you cannot imagine my excitement. It’s too cool! If you have arm problems then continue reading!!
My grandmother and I have so much fun playing with this hoops! I can play it anywhere, it’s really working my arm and shoulder muscles, and I can feel the soreness when I play it! I’m going to do this more frequently so to tone up my arms!!

These stainless steel tags can be engraved. It’s very important because you can engrave important information of the person wearing it in case of emergency. Especially for people who are very active, they should definitely have this because there are always risks associated with outdoor activities and with important information engraved on it, strangers will know who to contact and etc etc..

This is my close up: Anything happens to call Simon’s HP number.

I love these tags because they are functional and fashionable. They doesn’t look ‘obiang’ at all and it’s something I would dare to wear it out.
