One way to make sure you stick to your resolutions is to make fitness fun! Head to Sparkles in Hiram and put your roller skates on! Bring the entire family, because skating is the perfect activity for everyone to enjoy.

Here are some ways skating can help you get fit:

  • Joint-friendly: Skating is the perfect exercise for those with joint problems. When you skate, the motion is fluid, there’s no harsh impact as there is with running or high impact cardio. You can get all the cardio benefits without any of the impact on your joints.
  • Cross Training: Roller skating is a cross training exercise. You get cardiovascular benefits as well as strength gains. Your legs work, your arms work, your core works…it’s a total body exercise!
  • Fat Burning: When you roller skate, you can burn between 300 and 600 calories an hour.
  • Balance and Coordination: Roller skating will help improve your balance because it strengthens your core and it helps improve your coordination because your legs and arms are moving at the same time.
  • Strengthens the Heart: The American Heart Association says roller skating is a great aerobic exercise to help strengthen the heart.
  • Improves Endurance: Roller skating can increase muscle endurance. The longer you skate, the better your endurance becomes. This means you can work out longer without getting tired, and you’ll burn more calories each session.
