Our Chester, Virginia skating rink is here whenever you want to strap on your skates and feel like a kid again.
Reasons to Roller Skate
Skating is a celebration.
As you plan the special days coming up this year, consider planning a roller skating party. From kids birthday parties and school fundraisers to corporate outings and team parties, you can’t beat the double whammy of built-in entertainment and a fun activity that is accessible to a wide range of ages and abilities.
Skating relieves stress.
Our lives are busier than ever these days, and all of that hustling can be a major cause of stress. Fortunately, roller skating is a good way to take time out of the day-to-day grind and do something good for you.
As a social and physical activity, roller skating kills two birds with one stone, so to speak. Researchers have found that strong social bonds are literally good for your health, and skating is the perfect activity to do with friends, family, teammates, neighbors, or church groups. Make a commitment to include time for de-stressing and socializing this year.
Skating is a good workout.
Roller skating isn’t just a fun activity, it’s also a great way to incorporate movement into your life. It’s easy to get stuck on that dread-guilt treadmill; if your workouts are routine and boring, you dread doing them, but when you skip the workouts, you feel guilty for not achieving your fitness goals. The solution? Try new things and find activities you love doing!
Roller skating for fitness burns calories, provides cardio conditioning, and strengthens lower body and core muscles. It’s also low-impact, so it’s easier on your joints—one reason that many folks like to mix in skating as a break from high-impact sports like running or tennis.
Skating is affordable family entertainment.
We’d all like to have fun family outings as much as possible, but as any parent knows, even simple activities can get expensive quickly if you have kids. That’s one of the best reasons to go roller skating: A visit to the skating rink is affordable fun for the whole family!
Admission to our regular public skating sessions ranges from $2 to $7, and we also offer our guests specials and discounts like our roller skating Groupon. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram to stay up to date on our latest specials and events.
Skating is FUN!
Last, but certainly not least, roller skating is just plain fun! Few activities compare to the freedom and joy of cruising around the skating rink. We hope you’ll make time for fun, fitness, family, and friends this year and join us at Chester Skateland!
