Lace up your skates and increase your fitness!
■ Mary Ann Morris / Editor
Did you know that roller skating is one of few activities that provides a complete aerobic workout for more than 640 of the body’s muscles – especially the heart?
October is National Roller Skating month, and this year’s theme encourages kids to get active with Roller Roo in their rink. #mysk8moves is a movement aimed at reminding kids that a healthy lifestyle and physical fitness can still be fun.
Roller skating is a way to express your individuality in the form of movement. What are your moves? Are you a jam skater? Shuffle skater? Speed skater? Roller skating gives kids the opportunity to socialize, get active, and have fun in a safe environment.
What’s better than a night of skating? A night of free skating! The Valley Chronicle is hosting a free skate night on Thursday, Oct. 12 from 6-8 p.m. at The Wheelhouse Skating Rink. Please mark your calendars and join us. The Wheelhouse is located at 2860 W. Florida Ave., Hemet.
