11 reasons to roller skate your way to health

It’s better than jogging because of its low impact on joints.

Being an outdoor activity, inline skating is better for your mental health, it gives you more energy and more positive engagement.

It improves your coordination, mobility, balance and agility.

It improves blood circulation and is a great workout for the heart.

It develops especially the muscles of the lower body: thighs, butt and lower leg muscles. Skating is one of the best exercises for the butt muscles.

It tones the butt muscles, thighs and abs as well because they maintain the body balance while skating.

Inline skating can be practiced from childhood to old age, once you learn how to skate.

It can help you lose weight. Speed is not important, you should skate longer but slowly if you want to lose weight. In an hour of roller skating you’ll burn about 400- 600 calories, depending on your body weight.

You can skate by yourself, bring a friend along or even the whole family – it’s as much fun for parents and children as well.

It’s cheap – After investing a sum of money in a pair of inline skaters, you don’t have to spend anything but time for skating.

Inline skating is so much fun that the odds of spending more than the minimum required 20 minutes of exercises are really high.

Last, but not least, don’t forget to wear your safety gear when you go skating to avoid accidents and enjoy every moment to the fullest.
