I have been looking for a fun form of exercise since putting on a bit of weight during lockdown. I wanted something convenient that I could do at home when I had a bit of spare time. I saw the Kedoxi weighted hula hoop and thought it was such a great idea. Finally something I can do that is achievable! I love the idea of weighted hula hoops and they are a great way of burning calories and improving core strength. It's such an easy idea and all my family have tried it out and had a smile. There's just something so reminicent of childhood with hula hoops.
The hula hoop arrives in a plain cardboard box & in that there is a plastic bag containing 8 sections of hula hoop. It is very simple to build - just click the protruding button and connect each section together. It is suggested that children use 6 sections, women use 7, and men use 8 sections, but obviously it's down to personal preference. The hoop seems well made and very robust. It feels like it's going to last well.
With it's pink sections and grey sections, the Kedoxi hula hoop looks very attractive and I really like the design. The foam makes it feel very comfortable and the weight is perfect for me. I can't say that I am brilliant at it, but I'm getting there! It's good fun and reminds me of being a kid, which is when I probably last used one. I think it's just nice to have something just that little bit different. It doesn't feel like a chore - it's like playing. I'm hopeful that, for this reason, I will keep going on my fitness journey.
As an added bonus, there is also a very nice grey skipping rope in the set. It has strong handles and they are foam covered just like the hula hoop. The foam feels really comfortable in the hand and the rope is very strong and of good quality.
I really like this set of exercise equipment and I can see this as being easily portable. The rope & the hula hoop sections would fit well in a gym bag. My daughter is already fighting with me over who gets to use it, so I believe it's appealing to many age groups. I would definitely recommend it if you want to bring a bit of fun to your exercise. It's great.
