Inline skating is a great way to stay in shape while having fun. But, there are some important things to consider before strapping yourself into your new, used or borrowed skates. If you haven’t done so already, get a helmet and wrist guards to use with your inline skates. Knee pads and elbow pads are also available.
You do not need any special skills, superior strength, previous skating experience, great endurance, gymnastics history, or youth to enjoy inline skating. But, any activity more strenuous than walking, requires that you consider your physical limitations before participating, skating included. If you have arthritis, a heart condition, breathing irregularities, a chronic illness, skeletal problems or any other medical concerns, make sure you talk to your doctor about inline skating activities before purchasing a pair of skates. If you have not had a medical examination recently, now is a great time to get a complete physical checkup. After a few months of inline skating, your doctor will be pleased with your condition and so will you.
Knowledge is power, and the more things you take into consideration while preparing for inline skating activities, the more satisfying your skating experience will be.
