NRG Fitness Hoops

After giving it much thought, I decided to take my hoop making to the next level. You can now find my hoops here. I have found my passion! Who would have thought that a hoop could bring such renewed energy and joy? If you haven't tried to hoop since you were a child, you owe to yourself to rediscover how much fun it is. There really is a lot of truth in the term 'Hoop Bliss'. You will also reap the benefits of a great cardio workout and strengthen your abdominal muscles. And, that is a very good thing :~)

Caring For Your NRG™ Fitness Hoop

Several people have asked how to take care of their new hoops. I hope this will answer your questions. Thank you for supporting local art!

NRG™ Fitness Hoop Care

Your hoop is a hand-crafted work of art for cultivating health, joy, creativity, and vitality. With your care it will last a very long time.

  1. If your hoop becomes out of shape, let it rest on a flat surface in a warm room or in the sun for 30 min. Then gently shape it into a circle again.
  2. Store your hoop in a flat dry place away from direct sunlight and weather. Overexposure to the sun, rain, and extreme temperatures may cause fading or wear on the hoop.
  3. Do not leave your hoop in a closed car in hot weather as excess heat may cause damage to the tubing or tape.
  4. Be conscious of the floor you are hooping over. Hoop indoors on floor or carpet, or outdoors on grass. Dropping your hoop on concrete, gravel, or rocky areas can and will damage the tape on your hoop.
  5. If your hoop becomes dirty, simply wipe it down with a moist soapy cloth or natural household cleaner.
