ROLLERSKATING/BLADING TO STAY IN SHAPE
You can stay in shape just by skating three
times a week for 2 hour sessions. At the Forum, you can accomplish this in the
climate controlled comfort of our indoor rink.
If you are over thirty-five, you should
consult with your doctor to see just how much skating he/she recommends for your age
If you are over sixty-five, it is
recommended that you have a physical checkup first. Your doctor can advise you on the
right amount of exercise for you.
SKATING FOR WEIGHT
Regular skating not only burns
about 6 calories a minute, or 360 calories an hour, but also turns fat into muscle - a
double benefit. For best result, it is recommended that you skate on a regular
basis. That's easy to do in our climate controlled facility. Remember that the
faster you skate, the more calories you'll burn.
A few tips on eating
- It's a good idea not to each too much just
before skating. It's better to eat afterwards.
- eating fattening foods will just replace the
calories you've just burned off
- Remember that it's a gradual process.
Check your progress after you've been skating for about a month. A gradual
improvement will be longer lasting.
