Twirl Planet Has Your Hula Hoops

August 31st, 2011 · Hula Hoops and Hooping

Fitness hula hooping is fun!

Hula hooping draws people in for many different reasons: fitness, exercise, fun, dancing, performance or a unique way to spend time with friends! Today’s weighted hula hoops are not the lightweight tubes that we played with in childhood, but instead are heavier and durable. Hooping enthusiasts will find choices in color, style and size here at Twirl Planet. You can now purchase hula hoops easily online, enjoying wonderful selection and the convenience of delivery to your door.

Infinity Travel Hoop from Bodyhoops is a bestseller

Our collapsible hoop is a best seller for obvious reasons. A travel hula hoop lets you take your workout with you and exercise wherever you like. Performers using hoop dancing easily tote these along to their gigs. And more amateur hoop dancers are known to sneak these into rock concert venues. The Infinity Travel Hoop is hands-down our favorite!

1 Color Hoops in a Rainbow of Colors

We also carry standard fitness hula hoops in 1 color or 2 color versions. They require a spacious box, but are still easily shipped directly to you. Just like travel hoops, you purchase a small, medium or large diameter. All of our fitness hula hoops from Bodyhoops are proudly made in the USA.

2 Color Hoops

Pay us a visit at and check out the hula hooping fun that awaits!
