Get In Shape at Cardio Skate

roller-skating fitnessAre you ready to GET IN SHAPE for the New Year? If you’re anything like most Americans, you’re probably already thinking that you just don’t have time to workout these days. Studies show that gym memberships jump up 12% in January, but by February 1st 80% of New Year’s resolution gym-goers have quit. So what’s the trick to staying healthy? Learn how to have fun with it!

Health Benefits of Roller-Skating

Would you be surprised to know that just 1 hour of moderate roller-skating can burn up to 350 calories? It’s easy to forget that skating is exercise — after all, how often is fitness fun? — but health professionals recommend roller-skating right alongside swimming and cycling for low-impact aerobic workouts. Roller-skating regularly:

  • Builds endurance
  • Minimizes wear on the joints
  • Strengthens muscles
  • Improves flexibility
  • Encourages cardiovascular health

Fun Fitness for the Family

Is your New Year’s resolution to help your family get healthy? Roller-skating is the answer to your 2015 health goals! Roller-skating is so much fun the kids won’t know they’re working out. It’s also go-at-your-own-pace, meaning dad can zip around the rink with daring middle schoolers while mom helps the toddlers keep their balance; kids can pair off and push each other further; or everyone in the family can skate at their own level. Another awesome reason to come to Funcity’s bi-weekly Cardio Skate? Admission is only $5 including skate rentals. You won’t find a better deal at any gym in Houston!
