Your favorite childhood pastimes can serve as efficient workouts. Consider roller skating as an example.

Growing up, I attended many birthday parties and kids' skate nights at the local roller rink. I still enjoy roller skating and consider it a fun workout.

Roller skating may have been an enjoyable pastime during adolescence. However, the activity is also a low-impact, low-intensity aerobic exercise that works several muscles, especially your lower body.

If you want to start roller skating, ensure that you take precautions, including wearing the proper safety equipment. That includes a helmet, wrist guards, elbow pads, knee pads, padded bottoms (I bought some), and a decent pair of roller skates.

Now's a great time for roller skating! Williston Parks and Recreation  District (WPRD) will be holding open skate nights this week at the Raymond Family Community Center. All ages are welcome.
