Work off those Halloween Treats

The clocks have gone back, those cheeky little devils have left all their Halloween treats just lying around that you just HAD to have as you're watching the remnants of the amazing fireworks display float off into a smokey haze.

Christmas party season is just a few weeks away and you may be asking yourself if the bite-size snicker you had from their Halloween goodie bag was really worth 17 minutes of burpees to fit into the Christmas party frock?

We spend billions on Halloween treats every year and millions of calories are added to waist lines up and down the country. Foregoing Halloween is not really an option for parents with excitable kids, but there is something you can do to combat the calorie intake that absolutely doesn't involved burpees to ensure that your LBD fits just right!

The Perfect Workout

If you've been searching for a workout that is fun and produces great results then look no further as we have the answer you've been looking for. Forget walking 134 minutes to burn off that tall pumpkin spice latte, get your skates on and head down to the roller rink instead!

Burn Calories

Both indoor and outdoor skating are great ways to burn those calories. According to Fitness Magazine quad skating burns up to 482 calories in an hour which is pretty impressive, but did you know that In-line skating burns even more calories? In fact an hour of inline skating can burn up to 600 calories!

Great Aerobic Workout

As a cardiovascular activity it also gets your heart in shape. 30 minutes of roller skating can raise your heart rate to 148 beats per minute resulting in weight loss and a reduced risk of weight related ailments like heart disease and diabetes.

Works Most Muscle Groups

Roller skating is the ultimate all body workout as it works most muscle groups including the Glutes, the Calves, the Abs, Quads and Arms meaning that not only can roller skating help you to lose weight but it will also help you tone up too!

Gentle on the Joints

Running, walking and dancing etc, wreak havoc on the joints especially the knees, but roller skating is different. All disciplines of skating are low-impact so whilst you still gain all the same benefits that running has to offer by skating, you lose the harsh impact on your joints by up to 50%. In fact, because it’s a low-impact activity, skating can be a great aerobic alternative for those with joint problems or injuries.

Roller Skating makes you Happy!

We all know that we need to keep our bodies healthy but we also have to keep our minds healthy too. Skating clears the mind and minimises mild forms of depression and stress. It reduces bad hormones and while it does this it increases the endorphin's in the body, which are commonly known as the 'happy hormones' and if you roller skate with friends you'll have even more fun!

So what are you waiting for?

Cardiff Skate School run roller skating sessions at Cardiff Roller Rink every Friday evening 7pm which is for all ages and abilities and are great fun!

If you're a little nervous about joining in a session, have never skated before or are a little rusty, why not sign up for some lessons first?
