The Hiptronic Arts Experience

Our mission is to inspire our global community to actively engage in the benefits of play, including weight loss, stress relief, and positive body awareness. The benefits of hula hooping are not only limited to their effects on the body, but also extend beyond our physical plane to offer emotional and metaphysical growth. For many, this simple plstic circle has served as a portal to personal empowerment and Self activation. We want to help connect you with that power of circular guidance.

Hiptronic Arts provides a comprehensive hooping experience. Aside from just making super awesome, custom, handmade hula hoops, we also make videos to help you learn how to use them and develop your personal practice. We employ the assistance of unique and expressive performers to help inspire you, and build music playlists that will usher you into an ecstatic state of flow. We also write articles that will turn the gears in your brain with concepts of circular philosophy.Currently, our website is undergoing a huge facelift to provide access to all of these things. Please visit us at www.HiptronicArts.com to dive deeper into the hoop.

How do I know what size hoop is best for me?
Hula Hoops are created in various sizes to accommodate different statures and levels of ability. The larger and heavier the hoop is, the easier it is to hoop with, and thus is recommended for beginners. Smaller, lighter hoops travel faster and are better suited for more experienced hoopers.

For a more in depth discussion on hula hoop diameters and tubing, check out this helpful article from Hooping.org: http://www.hooping.org/2011/02/hoop-size-demystified

♥ Beginner Hoopers ♥
If you are new to hooping, it is advised that you begin with our large 7/8" Polypro Beginner's tubing. This size is heavy enough to facilitate easier learning, and slower movement, yet not so heavy as to cause excessive bruising like many weighted and exercise hoops. Choose a diameter that is at least 1" taller than your belly button, and add a few more inches to that size if you are of a larger stature. You will be looking at somewhere between 37-44" for your very first hula hoop.

♥ Downsizing Your Hoop ♥
When you feel you are ready to move onto the next level of hooping, select a diameter that is 2-3" smaller than what you currently use. If you only want to take small steps, then stay with your same size of tubing and only change your diameter. If you really want to feel a difference, downsize in both tubing and diameter.

♥ Mini Hoops ♥
Suggested size for a beginning poi hooper is one of our medium size 3/4" polypro tubing with a diameter between a 23-35".
