How Many Hoops Does a Hoop Trainer Have?
“Kirsten, why do you have so many hoops?” I was asked. Because I NEED them.
If you aren’t a hooper, I probably seem odd and eccentric. But, if you’ve been hooping for any length of time, you understand and probably think I don’t have enough hoops.
I have 2 full size LED hoops. One I had custom made and is a nice light weight. When we started doing night hooping, my husband needed an LED, too. Yea, that’s it. HE needed one, too…
I have my “go to” hoop. It’s been retaped more times than I can count. I love this hoop! I have a 36″ hoop; HoopChi works best for me with this size. I hoop with this one, too, though. I have mini hoops. They are currently 30″, and I’m finding them too big these days, so they will become 24″ the next time I retape them.
I have a wonderful 8-piece pocket travel hoop from TrooHoops. Here it is soaking up some warmth from Sahara sands (I visited Morocco in November).
There’s a set of mini LED hoops that I have on order.
I have about 10 hoops I’ve made that are ready for adoption to forever hooper homes and 20+ practice or “beater” hoops that I pass out at classes and meetups… some of which used to be my previous go to hoops. But, those don’t count, right?
So, how many hoops to YOU have?
