With December being National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month, there’s no better incentive than to get started on an active lifestyle the entire family can enjoy with the kind of activity found at ISC Mount Laurel.
Some things to consider:
Burning Calories Through Roller Skating
Roller skating compares with running and jogging when it comes to the reduction of body fat and health benefits. During an hour of roller skating, you’ll burn between 300 and 600 calories depending on your pace.
Weight Loss Doesn’t Have To Be A Chore
Losing weight can often seem like a burden. Studies have shown that we need 150 minutes of moderate exercise a week to see results, and spending those minutes in a monotonous activity you dread can quickly derail your program. So why not do something you truly enjoy, like roller skating?
You Don’t Have To Work Out Alone
Finding someone to join you during your workout routine isn’t always easy. With roller skating, there will always be someone there to share the rink with – even someone with similar fitness goals. Better yet, roller skating is inexpensive when compared to joining a gym.
Making Roller Skating A Part Of Your Child’s Healthy Lifestyle
The health risks caused by childhood obesity are serious, including type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease. By combining healthy activities such as roller skating with healthy foods such as fruits and vegetables, childhood obesity can be prevented or reversed.
