Roller skating is a fun activity that many pick up just for leisure.
However, you can gain more from it than just a fun day out with the family.
Skating is an excellent and often overlooked form of cardiovascular exercise and muscle training.
It requires core strength and the use of the lower body working to tone and define the muscles there.
So, if you are looking to shape and lift your bum, skating may just be the thing for you.
Roller skating is an intense physical activity that requires a certain degree of balance, agility, coordination and endurance.
It is also a form of exercise that is just as effective in calorie expenditure and cardiovascular exertion as running.
To begin skating, you will need the appropriate gear.
You can skate with either the traditional roller skates with four wheels side-by-side on each skate, or with roller blades, where the wheels are in one line.
Appropriate gear such as terrain-specific skates, helmets, knee pads, elbow pads and gloves are necessary to avoid injury when skating.
Luckily, with Manchester Roller Sports, we have everything available on site for you to use to get you rolling.
Skating is a unique sport because it works an array of muscles in your lower body at the same time.
