How to start your multi-hooping journey!


We've all seen the hoopers that can hoop with 2,3,4 and even 5 hula hoops! It can be entrancing and memsmerizing. But how does one get started?


  1. Anything you can do with one hoop, you can do with 2!

Hoopers often wonder how to even get started with 2 hoops. For example, if you can do an isolation with one hand, try your non dominant hand. Then try and do a one handed isolation in BOTH hands at the same time.

Same with Z-spins and side halos. If you can do it in one, hand, try to do it in another hand and then try simultaneously.



2. Start with waist hooping, then add another hoop to your hand!


A very simple way to start your multi hooping journey is so start by putting your hoop around your waist and then trying out a halo in any hand.


3. Learn the power of Hula Hoop GLOBES.


Talk about a show stopping trick! You can make 2,3,4 and even 5 hoop globes and these moves are sure to wow a crowd and yourself. You start by putting two hoops together, creating an "X" formation and then holding the hoop with your hands at the "X". You can also create an on body butterfly look with 2 and even 3 hoops.


4. If you can knee hoop, add another hoop up top!


This was how I started my multi hooping journey. I knew I could knee hoop very well, so I just added another hoop around my hand. I could do isolations, weaves and chest rolls with one hand, while focusing on my knee hooping. This was a great way to add a second hoop and once you master this, you can even add a third!


5. Master on body hooping


My final tip to master multi hooping, is to master on body hooping. If you can hoop around your ankles, knees, thighs, chest, neck and hands, you can most certainly multi hoop! This is a very cardio inclusive activity, but with practice, you can nail it!
