We love National Roller-Skating Month in October, but that doesn’t mean kids shouldn’t stay active year-round. May is National Fitness and Sports Month, a health movement that encourages kids, adults, and families to stay healthy together. Regular exercise helps kids grow strong, reduces the risk of disease in adults, and keeps grandparents healthy and active. It’s also a great way to have a blast with the family!
Health Benefits of Roller-Skating
Roller-skating keeps you healthy? It sounds too good to be true! In fact, skating is one of the best aerobic workouts. Here’s why:
- Skating involves muscles in your legs, glutes, arms, and core
- Skating is good for your heart
- Moderate skating burns around 330 calories per hour
- Roller-skating is low impact on the joints, decreasing risk of injury
And the best health benefit of all? Skating is fun! Not only are you more likely to stay active when you’re having fun, you’re improving your mood, too.
