3 Ways Roller Skating Improves Your Health

exerciseAre you searching for an activity that makes you happy, gives you a great workout, and strengthens your heart – all at the same time? Look no further. Roller skating has been proven to do all of this and more. At Rollerland Skate Center, we have skaters of all ages racing around the rink, making memories, and having a blast.

Add roller skating to your weekly schedule! Contact us today.

Discover three (out of many) ways that roller skating improves your health.

Boosts Your Attitude

  • It’s important to be healthy physically, but also in the emotional and mental aspects of your life. When you exercise, your body releases endorphins that help minimize discomfort and give you a feeling of well-being. This undoubtedly helps you think more clearly and feel happier (all while getting a great workout and improving your physique).

Works Out Your Body

  • Have you ever seen fit runners tackling the pavement at 5am? Maybe you’ve even thought about going for a run before work to fit in your workout. However, think twice before lacing up your sneakers. It’s been proven that running is harsh on your joints! Roller skating gives you a similar workout, but puts far less strain on your joints.

Strengthens Your Heart

  • The heart is a muscular organ that needs to be exercised. One of the ways to do this is by roller skating! Our favorite aerobic activity is great for your heart, increasing your heart rate to 140-160 beats per minute. With your heart growing stronger, your endurance will also increase. You will be able to tackle harder projects or activities without feeling winded.

Summer Day Camp For Kids

Are you tired of the normal summer shenanigans? Are you ready to switch it up this summer? Are you ready for your kids to have the best summer ever? We thought so. At Rollerland Skate Center we have the perfect summer plans for your kids. Sign up for our summer day camp. It will be the best part of your kids’ day!

Retro Roller Skates

From May 30th-August 11th Rollerland will have our annual summer day camp for kids. They work hard in school during the year and deserve to have some fun during the summer. It can be hard when parents work all day, so we want to take them off your hands and give them some of the best days ever! Skip the babysitter and let the kids have days filled with fun activities and tasty food.

Some of our activities aren’t things you can do at home. We will have our skating rink open and plenty of other activities available like mini golf and bowling. If the kids get tired, they can take a break and watch a movie. The kids will even have opportunities to swim! We will communicate with you when your kids need to bring their swimmies. These are some of the best summer activities available for the summer and your kids can do all of it with us at Rollerland Skate Center.

For all summer fun, supervision, and food throughout the day, our starting rate is just $35 per day. That’s cheaper than hiring a babysitter! Ensure your child is having the time of their life and staying healthy and active at the same time. For more information about our summer day camp, contact us.

Summer Fun of All Kinds!

Whether you’re planning a party for a church group, summer camp, or school field trip, finding a summer activity that everyone will enjoy can be tough. At many venues, booking group parties gets expensive, and the threat of rain or sweltering weather can ruin any outdoor activity with little to no warning. But there’s one activity you can count on to entertain everyone, rain or shine: roller skating! Book your group party at Rollerland and take advantage of our vast array of party packages for group events in Fort Collins.

Rollerland: Made for all Kinds of Fun

  • camp kids marchingSports teams Roller skating isn’t just a fun hobby to enjoy with family and friends. Skating is a great form of exercise, a fun way to expend energy, and a great reward for kids sports teams after a great season.

Take a day off for a group trip to Rollerland skate center and give the kids a chance to make friends, let Sunday School and VBS lessons sink in, and have fun in different environments.

Teach Kids to Love STEM

The Rollerland team loves seeing kids get excited about education. We encourage students to engage their curiosity in science, technology, engineering, and math with interactive STEM field trips that combine two awesome things: roller-skating and learning.

Why We Need STEM Education

kids with chemistry setStudies show that STEM fields are growing faster than any other industry. But student interest doesn’t match the need for qualified candidates, and many of the available positions go unfilled. Why? Because sometime around middle school, many students lose interest in learning about STEM. Many upper level classes don’t encourage kids to stay interested in STEM. And in many school systems, girls are actively discouraged from pursuing science, technology, engineering, or math education. So what can we do to close the gap?

STEM Field Trips

Rollerland is doing our part to show kids that STEM can be fun. Our lessons incorporate the science of motion, acoustics, rink design, engineering and lighting, and physical fitness to build a foundation of curiosity and problem-solving in the minds of elementary and middle school students. We have a variety of lessons available, and we’re happy to partner with Fort Collins teachers to find the STEM lessons that most closely match their current curriculum. After an hour of STEM education, the kids will get 2 hours to roller-skate. After all, exercise is good for the brain!

Whether you’re looking for a fun spring outing or planning ahead for the fall curriculum, our skating center is here to help. Call today to book a Rollerland STEM field trip.
