Skate off the Weight

Roller skating has been around for quite some time. Another thing that has been around for quite some time is the key to maintaining a healthy weight. Experts will tell you that your weight is related directly to diet and exercise. The American Heart Association states that, “Adults need at least 150 minutes of moderate exercise per week to see the health benefits of physical activity such as lower blood pressure, improved bone health, weight maintenance after weight loss, better sleep, and more energy.”


We don’t know about you, but all of those benefits sound pretty amazing! For this reason, we offer SK8 4 Fitness on Fridays from 10:30am-12:00pm. Admission is $10, and you have to have a helmet in order to participate. We realize that this is a daytime skate, and if you are a work at home mom (WAHM) or a stay at home mom (SAHM) you might be wondering what to do with your little ones. Admission for children is $5 and for an additional $3 they can play on the indoor playscape.

What will we be doing during the SK8 4 Fitness session? Well, we will be getting our sweat on! So be ready to move, skate, sweat, and have fun! Bring a friend with you if you want! This will be one of the best hour and a half workouts you’ve ever had.

If you can’t make it out to our SK8 4 Fitness session on Fridays, don’t worry about it. We offer plenty of additional skating opportunities throughout the week at Playland Skate Center in Austin. Our other skate sessions do not require a helmet, but they are full of calorie burning fun too!
