Lewisville skating rinkThere’s no need to dread your workouts in preparation for swimsuit season, because roller skating is one of the best ways to make exercising fun! We make getting fit for summer easy and exciting at InterSkate, where our daily events and affordable prices ensure that you will enjoy every step (or glide) on the way to getting in shape.

How exactly does roller skating apply to health and fitness? Read on to learn more, and be sure to like us on Facebook to stay up to date on our latest events and promotions.

  • Strength-building- Roller skating is a great way to gradually build muscle strength without having to hit the gym. The benefits are especially prominent in the lower body. Pushing off and maintaining your balance will help you build up your quads, hamstrings, glutes, and calves, as well as your core, or abdominal muscles.
  • Endurance- Roller skating can help you build up your cardiovascular fitness to improve endurance. The more you train your muscles and force your lungs to work, the longer you will be able to skate (or run/swim/cycle) without getting winded.
  • Burning calories- Roller skating is a good way to burn a lot of calories in a relatively short period of time. Additionally, the muscle you build from skating will help you burn calories even when you’re at rest!

In addition to skating at our Lewisville skating rink, you may want to buy your own skates so you can roller skate outside. Skating on hilly terrain will help you improve your endurance even more. Just remember to replace your wheels with outdoor skate wheels first!
