Stay Fit While You Have Fun

Roller skating

Everyone knows how fun rollers skating can be. It’s a classic pastime the world over and has remained a popular activity for all ages for nearly 100 years. But did you know that there is a whole list of health benefits from spending your time at the rink that go way beyond simply having a great time?

At Roller Cave, we think roller skating is the perfect summer activity and here’s why!

It’s So Fun You Don’t Even Know It’s Exercise

Roller Rinks are synonymous with family-friendly good times, but spending time at the rink is also an excellent way to stay fit and healthy.

Roller skating has the following health benefits:

  • Increases muscular strength
  • Increases cardiovascular endurance
  • Improves balance and agility
  • Burns between 300 and 600 calories per hour
  • Relieves stress and tension

It’s a Better Alternative to Running

Roller skating or rollerblading on a regular basis can easily become a great alternative to your daily jog. Skating has added benefits that jogging or running simply can’t compete with, though. When you skate, you are getting a similar cardio workout that running gives you. However, since skating is a low impact activity, you reduce stress on your bones and joint. This can help prevent injuries and keep you active longer.

Skating is Fun for the Whole Family

We’ve gone through some of the health benefits of skating, but what makes it all that much better is the fact that skating is a ton of fun for kids and adults alike. Kids often skate for hours without even realizing that they are exercising, building muscle, increasing their agility and helping their cardiovascular system.
