Free Rollerskating Offered in an Effort to Reduce Obesity
Skateland Indy to offer free roller skate sessions on Thursdays this summer

(May 29, 2009 – Indianapolis) - Skateland Indy has partnered with FitCity to encourage families to get out and exercise for a healthy lifestyle. This is part of an on-going effort by FitCity to combat childhood obesity. Free skate sessions will be offered from 6-9 p.m. on Thursdays, June 4-August 6. Skateland Indy is located at 3902 N. Glen Arm Rd. Families who visit Skateland Indy at least six Thursdays this summer will be entered in a grand prize drawing.

According to the Roller Skating Association International:

Roller skating provides a complete aerobic workout and involves all of the body's muscles, especially the heart.

Roller skating is equivalent to jogging in terms of health benefits-caloric consumption, reduction of body fat and leg strength development.

Roller skating is recognized and recommended by the American Heart Association (AHA) as an aerobic fitness sport.

The number of calories burned per hour while skating at 6 mph is 350 and 600 while skating at 10 mph.
“FitCity is excited to provide families with an affordable and fun alternative to exercise this summer,” said Eleather Baker, program director. “This is just one of the many ways we are encouraging Hoosiers to make a healthy move in an effort to turn the Circle City into a Fit City.”
For more information call FitCity at (317) 536-1216 or Skateland Indy at (317) 291-6795.

FitCity is a community-wide childhood obesity campaign designed to educate and motivate local residents to make a healthy move and shake the title of the “eleventh fattest state in the nation.” To find fitness, nutrition or wellness resources around Indianapolis, local residents can call 2-1-1 or visit
