Skate Your Way to a Healthier Workplace

The work blues can sneak up on people no matter how much they love their jobs. More and more companies counteract the negative effects of cubicle life by promoting employee fitness. And what better way to engage your office than with a day of play at Funcity Sk8?

Encouraging Employee Health

working man sleeping on benchMay is National Employee Health & Fitness Month, an event that educates leaders about the benefits of employee wellness and encourages companies to develop work health programs. Employees who eat well and stay active are more likely to live longer, live better, and work more productively. Studies show that:

  • Team fitness keeps employees more engaged in the office culture
  • Exercise improves moods and increases focus
  • Regular activity relieves stress
  • Physical fitness keeps employees healthier, reducing absenteeism and lowering employer healthcare costs

Health Benefits of Roller Skating

Not only is roller-skating a whole lot of fun, it’s excellent exercise, too. Roller-skating is a low-impact cardiovascular workout that improves heart health and helps build muscle. In just an hour of moderate roller skating, the average person can burn upwards of 350 calories. Think of the possibilities when you throw JAM skating, skating aerobics, and team building relay races into the mix! Roller-skating builds muscles in the legs, glutes, and core, giving your employees a well-rounded workout. Pump up your favorite tunes, add a few healthy snacks, and your team will become fitness gurus in no time!

Encourage your employees to live a healthier lifestyle. Book a corporate outing at Funcity Sk8 and Play.

School Field Trips in Webster, Texas

Roller-Skating Field Trip.Any kid will argue the absolute best time during school was the field trip that led them out into the world. Learning doesn’t have to be limited to just the classroom, there is much knowledge to be gained by taking a day away from the desk.

Not Just Any Field Trip
 
As ‘screen time’ increases, giving children a physical education is becoming increasingly important. To lead a healthy life as an adult, children should be taught at a young age that physical fitness doesn’t have to be boring and monotonous.

At FunCity your students will learn that physical fitness can be fun and enjoyable while they experience roller skating around our ring. That’s not the only thing they will learn – their communication skills and teamwork will be put to the test as they try out laser tag events.

 

Field trips are a great way to teach soft skills outside the classroom. We offer a number of different packages for these field trips. Reasonable group prices are available for numbers of up to 150. These packages come with 2 hours of roller skating time and skate rentals. Optional add-ons are available to make a totally customizable excursion.

Away From the Desk, Into the Fun

Education BlackboardArguably, the best times of the school year for the kids are the field trips they get to take that led them out into the world. Learning doesn’t have to be limited to just the classroom, there is much knowledge to be gained by taking a day away from sitting at their desks.

As ‘screen time’ increases, teaching children about physical fitness is important.

At Funcity your students will learn that physical fitness can be fun and enjoyable while they get to experience skating around our rink. That’s not the only thing they will learn – their team work skills will be put to the test as they try out laser tag events.

The normal laser tag game of team A versus team B is always fun, but think outside of the box! Play a game of teachers versus students, make point goals so that the game brings in the challenge of math, or set up a version of leagues to keep the kids playing throughout the session.

Roller skating is not only a great way to teach kids about exercise and fitness, but it’s a unique opportunity learn about physics. Kinetic energy versus potential energy is easily illustrated out on the skating floor while the kids on are wheels.

Field trips are a great way to teach outside the classroom. We offer a number of different packages for these excursions, which include bringing up to 150 guests for a reasonable price. These packages come with 2 hours of skate time and skate rentals, as well as optional add-ons.
