SlimGo Hoop( www.slimgousa.com )
SlimGo Hoop: A weighted, flexible hoop made of a 1 1/4 -inch-thick double-layered (steel inside PVC) spring that can expand from 5 to 9 feet.
Likes: Wow! This was a wild workout. I felt like some sort of hooping Ninja warrior, with a blade whipping around my waist double the speed of a normal hoop to the pitched whirring sounds of sharp, scraping knives cutting the air. This is hooping on steroids, with Dolby sound effects. Very practical, it curls down to a foot-long loop for easy travel and can be used for several strength-stretching exercises. Booklet included.
Price: $34.95 (3.5 pounds); $39.99 (5 pounds). (516) 568-7269; www.slimgousa.com.
