A super alternative to running because it’s easier on the joints, skating is a good aerobic workout that tones your lower body and builds leg strength. The good news is that both ice and inline skating are good calorie burners. On average, a 143-pound woman burns about 330 calories during one hour of continuous skating. Check with your local ice rink for public skating hours. If you don’t know how to ice skate, learn the fundamentals through Skate Canada’s CanSkate programs for beginners of all ages.
