Looking for something different to help get you fit? How about something that not only gets your heart beating faster, but also improves your balance, physical fitness, and coordination? Why not try something that’s so much fun, you'll forget you're working out?
Ice skating might be the perfect fit for you. It’s never too late to learn. You can learn to ice skate at any age. Learn more about the benefits of this fun and invigorating winter activity.
Ice skating is great for your heart and lungs. It provides an aerobic workout, getting your heart pumping and improving your circulation. This can help you feel more alert and energetic, while lowering your risk of heart disease.
Ice skating can also help you lose weight, especially if you combine it with a healthy and well-balanced diet. You can potentially burn more than 200 calories for every half hour of skatingl.
Ice skating also tones and stretches your muscles as you learn to engage your abdominals, thighs, and calves to maintain your balance. The more you skate, the more strength and endurance you’ll develop.
Finally, skating can improve your mental fitness. As you learn to skate, you’ll challenge your mind and body to develop new skills, increase your self-confidence, and exercise mental control. This fun seasonal activity is also a great way to spend time with friends and family members. Hitting your local ice rink together can help you unwind and relieve stress in the company of loved ones.
