For over a century roller skating has offered family fun and exercise. It has been present within the world of sports as well as the world of recreation. On the competitive side, many skaters have found ways to express themselves through roller derby, speed skating, roller hockey, artistic roller skating, and jam skating (breakdancing on roller skates). Through the non-competitive side countless individuals, families, and groups have enjoyed spinning their wheels and feeling the wind in their hair while skating to the modern hists of the day.
Ultimately, this form of exercise is referred to as fun you can feel within the roller skating industry. It provides a fantastic cardio workout, uses a variety of muscles, is easier on the joints as compared to high impact activities, and does wonders for the mood. Skate-N-Fun Zone can help you reach your fitness goals with roller skating!
Roller skating can provide just as much, if not more, of a cardio workout when compared to running or walking. It certainly gets that heart pumping. The American Heart Associationrecommends at least 30 minutes of aerobic exercise per day.
Work Your Muscles
When you roller skate, you are not working just one part of your body or one set of muscles. The legs get a work out with the forward motion and your arms get a workout in assisting with balance. Strength is built in the ankles, abdomen, lower back, feet, knees, hips, and thighs.
Easy on Joints
Runners can sometimes be found running on an asphalt road instead of on the nearby concrete sidewalk in an effort to provide an easier impact on knee and ankle joints. At Skate-N-Fun Zone, you don’t have to worry about that impact. There is much less stress on the joints from the swooping and gliding motion of roller skating as compared to running.
The motion and positive music associated with roller skating often result in a positive mood. It is hard not to get a little lift in your step (or in your glide) when listening to your favorite tunes on wheels!
