What difference does hoola hula hoop size makes?

Larger hula hoops rotate more slowly, smaller hula hoops rotate more quickly. When learning to hula hoop, larger hula hoops are more forgiving because they give extra time to execute movements slowly and accurately. It is easier with larger hula hoop to begin to feel the hula hoop moving around your body, to become accustomed to its rhythm, and to develop your own rhythmic response to it. So we recommend starting with a hula hoola hoop of at least 38 inches. Later, as your skill level increases, if you want to challenge yourself, you may decide to choose a smaller hoola hula hoop, to play and experiment.
