So before receiving my hoop I watched some videos on how to be a successful hooper. I am plus size and the hoop seems large enough, but a larger hoop would probably be a lot easier. I did purchase 2 to be able to add links in but that does not work. It just warps the hoop shape. While hooping the hoop pops loose after a few go rounds. It's annoying. I am going to stick with it thought because I can already feel it in my abs. Hopefully I can keep thw hoop up longer.
