Did you know that roller skating has been one of America’s favorite pastimes? It’s true! And it also provides you and your family with an excellent cardio workout. There are many other health benefits that are included that you probably didn’t know you were getting from your laps around the rink.
Here are just a few health benefits you get to enjoy when you visit us for an active day of skating at Skate and Fun Zone in Manassas, VA.
1. Roller Skating is low-impact on your joints.
Athletes who run or play sports know that these type of sports are very hard on your joints all too well. Roller Skating provides you with a fluid motion that keeps you from damaging your joints, helping you enjoy movement similar to running without the harsh impact.
2. Roller Skating involves multiple muscle groups.
Summer is right around the corner and everywhere we look there seems to be a tip on how to look great in your swimsuit. Skating works your legs and glutes as you power through movement, while your arms and core get a workout as you balance your body during the movement.
3. Roller Skating burns just as many calories as other aerobic exercises.
As you glide across the rink at Skate and Fun Zone, you may not realize just how many calories you’re burning because of all of the fun you’re having! Music, friends, fluid motion, and more make skating seem more like relaxing than working out, but you can still burn triple digit calories easily with a few laps around the floor.
When is the last time you had a workout that you really loved? Join as at the rink to get your cardio on with some skating!
