The first real exposure to roller skating to a lot of parents today is when their child is invited to a birthday party at a skating rink. At that party the child rents a pair of skates and their parents either watch them or seek to join them on the rink. From that exposure some children develop a real interest in the sport. Also, some parents decide that this is a sport that they would like to engage in with their children. This article is written for new skaters seeking to learn the sport.
Roller skating is a very fun activity. It has aerobic benefits similar to other aerobic exercises like jogging, running, or cardio karate except that roller skating is a low impact activity. “Low impact” means that this particular activity is less stressful on your joints and will not cause your joints to undergo joint degeneration (AKA wear and tear) prematurely unlike other aerobic exercises.
While this activity can be fun and entertaining, roller skating does not come without its dangers. Safety gear should always be worn to prevent serious injury. A helmet, wrist guards, elbow guards, and knee guards should always be worn when you are a beginning skater.
