    Inline skating is a great way to participate in a fitness activity that benefits both your body and your mind. So, if you have inline skates, get them out of the closet. If you need inline skates find some starter options and strap them on for healthy fun. Regardless of your personal fitness needs, inline skating is a great way to fulfill them.

    Inline skating an excellent aerobic activity for people of all ages. Six important health benefits will result from a regular program of inline skating activities. Muscle endurance and strength will improve, flexibility will increase with a little help, body composition will change due to calories burned, cardio and respiratory endurance will increase, balance and coordination will improve and mental clarity and connectivity will get better. These improvements will carry over to other activities in your life, too.

    Inline skating provides aerobic benefits that compare to running and biking and delivers a better cardiovascular workout than stair-stepping equipment. The anaerobic benefits are actually better than running or biking, because it provides a natural and smooth side-to-side movement that exercises adductor (inner thigh) and abductor (buttocks) muscles that may be ignored by other activities. Just 20 to 30 minutes of additional inline skating activity each day will help your body become physically stronger and lower the risk of heart disease. It also has low impact advantages and generates up to half the impact shock to joints, ligaments and tendons that running creates.

    You can skate your way to improved mental health, too. Consider your skating exercise activities as an opportunity for much-needed mental quiet time. Choose scenic skating locations or good company to help brighten your mood, and let your workout shift your body's chemical balance for a naturally induced feeling of well-being.
