Frequently Asked Questions About Powerhoop & Corehoop:


Why are your fitness products and workout called "Powerhoop" in Europe and " Corehoop" in North America?


Expansion to North America was a natural step after Powerhoop's stunning success across Europe. Since the trademark was already in use in North America, Powerhoop naturally became... Corehoop!


Is there research to support your claim that a Corehoop shrinks your waist?


Yes, there is! A study at Canada's Waterloo University, conducted by one of the world's foremost experts in spine biomechanics, concluded that Innertrak's hoop significantly reduced waist size in subjects who "hooped" for fifteen minutes a day, five days a week, for six weeks.


I've never been able to use a hula hoop before - what are my chances of success? 


Due to their weight and large diameter, Corehoop are easy to use, even for those who have never succeeded with old-fashioned lightweight hula hoops, with the help of pointers and a demo video.


Are weighted hoops safe? 


Sports safety depends on common sense and on following the manufacturer's recommendations. Weighted workout hoops are meant to challenge the core muscles, causing them to become firmer, stronger and more protective, but this is a process that takes several days of gradually increasing the amount of hooping time. Beginners who overdo will notice soreness and even bruising, which is uncomfortable, unnecessary, and gives hooping a bad name. In addition, there are certain conditions that are contraindicated for hooping, like pregnancy and taking blood thinning medication. Read more about hooping safety.


Corehoop classes sound like fun - how do I find one in my area? 


Over 700 fitness professionals have been certified as Powerhoop instructors in the UK, with hundreds more in other countries in Europe. Starting in late 2017, Corehoop instructors will begin teaching classes throughout North America. You can search for classes in your area and if there is nothing nearby, ask your local gym to check out our Instructor Training Courses. You can also visit our Powerhoop UK Facebook Page and join our mailing list. Check out some class pictures and videos in our Gallery.


Why does the Corehoop Deluxe cost more than other hoops I've seen online? 


There are lots of cheap hoops on the market, and they're cheap for a reason. The Corehoop Deluxe has been designed, developed and manufactured in the UK, using the highest-quality materials and optimised design:


  • The large diameter makes it easy to use and the wavy pattern helps to quickly build a "body armour" of core muscles

  • Compressible cushioning reduces discomfort in new users.

  • Phthalate-free material means safety in households with children, and no unpleasant chemical smell

  • Corehoop can be dismantled for convenient storage and travel, with sturdy connectors that won't snap or fly apart under normal use

  • Adjustable weight allows customers to choose the hoop that's right for them

  • Corehoops are backed by top-quality customer service. Our staff members don't just sell Corehoop... we love them ♥
