3 Reasons Why You Should Start Roller Skating as a Hobby
You could be forgiven for thinking the heyday of the roller skate was in the 1970s and 1980s with leg warmers, big hair and neon Lycra being the order of the day.
But actually, roller skating has been around for over 200 years as a hobby, and still continues to go from strength to strength.
The beauty of roller skating is, like cycling and swimming, it is a lifelong skill that you’re never to old to pick up and there’s always more to learn and master.
Check out a few reasons why roller skating is a great hobby:
It Provides a Social Outlet
Do you have activities where you get to interact with people other than school or work?
Strengthening a child’s social skills or improving your own is an important part of life. When you roller skate, you will meet other like-minded people that you have something in common with – having fun and getting better!
It Will Boost Your Emotional Health
When you exercise, you are releasing feel-good hormones called endorphins. These endorphins actually help people feel more relaxed and happy.
It Builds Muscle Definition
Are you looking for a fun way to lose weight and build muscle at the same time? Roller skating is the answer! After skating regularly, you’ll notice a difference in your muscle definition and loss of unwanted weight. And, this is one of the best ways to lose weight without taking a serious toll on your joints!
