February is the month of love, flowers, hearts — and not just the candy kind! That’s right, February is also American Heart Month. Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the U.S., but the good news is that there are many ways you can treat your heart better and reduce your risk of heart disease — including roller skating!
That’s right, roller skating is not just fun, but it’s also literally good for your health. One of the best things you can do for your heart is to stay active, and roller skating is a great way to get in an aerobic workout while having a blast.
It is recommended to get at least 30 minutes of exercise a day, 5 days a week, and skating is a great way to make this happened! Skating is a wonderful workout for your whole body. It doesn’t just improve core strength and tone muscles, but it can also provide an aerobic workout that gets your heart pumping.
Skating (or any physical activity that is fun and social) can also help to reduce stress. Not to mention that when exercising is fun, you will be much more likely to stick with it.
So make skating a part of your regular routine and join us at Rainbow Skateland for a little Lockport roller skating. Check out our hours and our fun upcoming Lockport events, and make your plans to skate today. Your heart will thank you for it!
