While hula hooping is a fun activity for kids, the people on the website look more like fitness professionals than normal people trying to lose weight. There is no ability to order larger hoops for people with above average waistlines and this limits the people who can benefit from the Hoopnotic series. The Hoopnotic equipment is very expensive and may not be affordable for some people. At this time, the Hoopnotic series seems more focused on the already fit than the people who are trying to lose weight. A proven fat burner and an appetite suppressant may help more than the Hoopnotic series.
