Are you unsure of what to get a favorite teacher for Christmas? Or how about that hard-to-buy-for cousin, niece or nephew? Or the name you drew for the gift exchange?
Why not consider giving the gift of exercise in such a fantastic atmosphere they won’t even realize they are exercising?
At Orbit Skate Center in Palatine Illinois, the gift of skating in the form of gift cards can be used all year long, is great for people of all ages, and unlike many gift cards, doesn’t expire and can be recharged. According to the Roller Skating Association (May 2015), roller skating is an excellent form of aerobic activity for all ages, and also:
- Roller skating for just 30 minutes produces a heart rate of at least 148 beats per minute.
- The average person can burn up to 600 calories with just one hour of vigorous roller skating at 10 miles per hour.
- Roller skating causes 50% less stress to joints than running.
And according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, roller skating is:
- 2x safer than school playgrounds

- 4x safer than basketball
- 5x safer than riding a bicycle
