  • Research conducted at the Universitat Konstantx concluded that moderate roller skating will increase the skater's heartbeat to 140-160 beats per minute. Pick up the pace and you'll likely top 180 beats per minute. This activity strengthens the heart muscle in order to improve blood circulation. 
     

  • Studies have shown that roller skating provides a complete aerobic workout and involves all of the body's muscles, especially the heart.
     

  • Roller skating is equivalent to jogging in terms of health benefits and caloric consumption, reduction of body fat, and leg strength development.
     

  • Roller skating is recognized and recommended by the American Heart Association (AHA) as an aerobic fitness sport.
     

  • Just one hour of moderate roller skating burns 330 calories for a 143-pound person.  If that same person roller skates vigorously up to 10 mph, he or she will burn up to 600 calories in an hour.
     

  • According to a study conducted at the University of Massachusetts, in-line skating causes less than 50 percent of the impact shock to joints compared to running.
     

  • If someone roller skates one day, bicycles another, and swims or runs on another, the person will be getting all the fitness benefits that aerobics can offer
    .

  • According to Dr. Carl Foster, associate professor of medicine at the University of Wisconsin Medical School, in-line skating as a form of exercise is as beneficial as running or cycling. (Information from International Inline Skating Association website)
