Affordable:

Skating is one of the most affordable activities for the entire family. Admission fees at Spin Activity Centre include skate rental and protective equipment.

Social:

Roller skating provides a first experience in independent socialization for kids. In consumer surveys, skating has been voted the best place to date “without dating” – it is the best first date and the place where many have met their future mate.

Fun:

Most importantly roller skating doesn’t feel like a workout. Have you ever seen a person roller skating and frowning at the same time? Nope 🙂

Fat burning:

The average skater can expect to burn about 10 calories each minute of roller skating. The calorie-burning benefits of roller skating add up quickly; you can burn up to 600 calories if you skate for a full hour.

Works the arms and legs:

Roller skating is equivalent to jogging in terms of health benefits and caloric consumption, reduction of body fat, and leg strength development.

Improve balance:

Roller skating helps improve balance by requiring constant use of muscles to stay upright. This improves a skater’s core and improves posture and balance in the long term.

Strengthen the heart: 

Studies have shown that roller skating provides a complete aerobic workout which involves all of the body’s muscles, especially the heart and is recommended by the American Heart Association. According to studies by the Universitat Konstantx, moderate roller skating increases heart rate up to 160 beats per minute, while skating at fast speeds can increase heart rate up to around 180 beats per minute.

Improve endurance: 

Roller skating helps to improve endurance. Each skating session trains your muscles, which means you can skate longer distances – and do other intense workouts – without becoming exhausted.
