We’re nearing a year of life under pandemic restrictions, and the pandemic blues have set in for many folks. While it won’t solve all of your problems, now is a good time to take up a new hobby or get back into a hobby you’ve previously enjoyed! We recommend roller skating. Sure, we’re biased, but you should still consider these reasons why you should take up roller skating!
Need a New Hobby? Try Roller Skating!
Skating Can Lift Your Mood and Improve Your Health
Did you know that roller skating can burn 9-10 calories per minute? While it may not seem like a workout at the time (having fun is the best distraction), roller skating actually works your core abdominal and leg muscles, builds stamina, and burns calories. All of those physical health benefits of skating are great on their own, but add in the fact that more physical activity can be good for your mental health, and it’s clear that roller skating is one of the best hobbies you can get into! Besides, who wants to go for a run in the cold and wet when you can get a workout while staying dry and comfortable at the skating rink?
Skating Offers Socially-Distanced Socializing
Finding things to do that follow COVID restrictions and don’t put you or others at unnecessary risk has been quite a challenge, and that challenge has only grown harder thanks to winter weather. It’s smart to avoid gyms and fitness studios, but it’s too cold outside most days to get an outdoor workout in without freezing. Fortunately, our indoor skating rink is nice and spacious, so you can skate up a sweat while maintaining the appropriate distance from others.
As for Rainbow Roller Rink, we’re doing our part to keep our guests and staff safe, by requiring masks to be worn at all times as per New York law. We’ve also stepped up our cleaning and sanitation routines, added hand sanitizer stations, and decreased the capacity of the skating rink to avoid heavy crowds.
Skating Is Just Plain Fun!
Last, but not least, there’s one thing a new hobby has to offer: FUN! We’ve got it in spades, and the only missing ingredient is you. Whether you join us for after school skating, skate classes, Adult Skate Night, or one of our general fun skate sessions, we’ll have the music pumping and the rink ready for you to get your skate on. Check out our skating session schedule for times and admission prices, and follow us on Facebook to hear about upcoming events and specials!
We can’t wait to see you, so grab your mask, put some good socks on, and come see us at Rainbow Roller Rink!
