It’s tough to stay active during the summer. With all that heat and humidity, a few minutes outside can leave the kids sapped of strength and ready to collapse on the couch. But you don’t have to give into inactivity. Keep your family moving with indoor fitness at Wheels.
Health Benefits of Roller-Skating
You knew skating was fun, but did you know it’s good for you, too? Skating is a great way to keep the family active when it’s hot. Our facilities are clean and air conditioned, and if you need a pick-me-up, all you need to do is roll over to our concession stand. Don’t wait to skate! The health benefits of roller-skating include:
- Burning calories. Has your family gotten a little too comfortable with sweets this summer? Burn off that extra ice cream with fun fitness in Odenton. An average sized adult can burn 9-10 calories in one minute of moderate skating. Depending on how hard you skate, that adds up to 300-600 calories per hour!
- Strengthening muscles. Roller-skating works out a variety of muscles, from your legs and glutes to your abs, arms, and even your heart! It’s also a great way to improve coordination and flexibility.
- Low-impact exercise. Exercise like running may be great for your body, but they’re bad for your joints. Roller-skating is a low-impact fitness routine, so you can skate all day without worrying about damage to your joints.
- Mood boost. Yep, just like other forms of exercise, roller-skating can reduce stress and improve your mood. Skate for the smiles on your children’s faces!
