Zoom off the calories! Tone your troubled spots! You can cover a lot of ground fast with inline skating. However, just learning how to use the skates is good exercise. It takes a lot of energy to do it correctly when you are a beginner.
Calorie burn per 15 minutes: depending on intensity, 84 to 119
DO THIS FIRST
Learn to stop before you zoom off on a pair of skates. Take a little extra time and be sure you know how to use the heel brakes on the skates.
If you are just starting out, find an empty parking lot with a smooth, level surface. Your neighborhood roads can be quite bumpy causing your shins to hurt.
MAKE IT FUN
Go for form. Master the basics, then try a ‘squatting’ position, or use long, graceful strides. This makes inline skating feel more like ice-skating than roller skating.
Challenge yourself. Staying in motion with few rests will burn more calories. Try going uphill for an even greater burn and overall workout.
