From a leading name in Crossfit and Powerlifting performance gear, SlingShot, comes the SlingShot Hip Circle. The Hip Circle can be used for hip and glute activation/strength as well as dynamic warm up. Simply put the circle around your knees and go for a long stride walk. You will not only get your hips and glutes warm, but your entire body. You can fix up your weak and painful "granny hips" by putting on the circle and walking forward, backward, and side to side. You can use it to squat, sumo Deadlift (feet out wide) or while simply walking on the treadmill! Many coaches like Kelly Starrett and Jesse Burdick love using the circle to cue their athletes to force their knees out while squatting and sumo deadlifting.
The version 2.0 Hip Circle is a stiffer material that provides more resistance.
The Grippy Hip Circle® has a tacky strip along the inside of the circle to keep the Hip Circle® in place while using.

Addendum of 21 Jan 16: the hip band is also effective for three additional things, one obvious and two not-so-obvious.
1) Obvious-to work the hip/pelvic muscles involved with sacral stabilization, apply the band just above or below the knees, lie on your back, with your legs bent and feetc flat on ground (situp style), and open and close your knees. Alternatively, keep one knee vertical and externally rotate the other knee. Then switch. This helps with isometric/eccentric training, a critical function of lateral rotators.
2) Not obvious-for chest wall splinting, e.g. sore ribs, this works as a nice wrap. I'm 6'0", 230, 40+" chest, and the 15" red band fit perfectly snugly.
3) Breathing-an aid to practice diaphragmatic breathing, use the wrap around the chest to restrict its motion and allow lateral "belly breathing".
