- burns up to 600 calories per hour?
- is recognized by the President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports as one of the top three activities in the nation for all-round fitness?
- improves balance, strength, agility and endurance?
- is twice as safe as a playground?
- is three times safer than football or baseball?
- is four times safer than basketball?
- is five times safer than bicycling?
- improves blood circulation throughout the lungs, heart, and other organs?
- is great for girls who are hesitant to participate in school sports or other physical education programs? (63% of roller skating's 22 million annual participants are women!)
