Roller skating is a great activity for all ages, mainly because it’s FUN! But did you know that roller skating is not just fun, it’s also healthy?
One of the hardest parts about sticking to an exercise routine is staying interested. When people get bored, they are less likely to continue working out, and may end up giving up altogether. However, choosing fun and exciting activities will help you stay motivated.
Roller skating fits the bill because it’s so fun you probably won’t even realize you’re getting a great workout! There are many ways roller skating can benefit your body, including:
- Cardiovascular fitness- Skating can get your heart rate up and burn plenty of calories. Over time you may notice that you have more stamina and speed!
- Low impact- Roller skating is a low-impact sport, which means it puts less stress on your joints compared to other activities like running, basketball, baseball, etc.
- Builds muscles– Roller skating engages not only your legs, but also your glutes and core abdominal muscles. Skating regularly will help you develop those muscle groups which can help you in other sports as well.
