What are the benefits of ice skating

Not only is ice skating fun but once you've got your balance on the ice, you'll reap the following benefits:

Improve your balance and coordination - ice skating requires you to use your body to keep yourself upright and synchronize your movements which develops your balance and calls for coordination.
Meet new friends - ice skating is a social activity and you'll meet new friends and develop your skills together
Stay active - ice skating encourages you to burn calories and build endurance week on week
Stress management - unwind on the ice after a hard day at work while moving your body and muscles

What to bring ice skating

The best equipment you can bring with you for ice skating has to be warm clothes, padded jackets and trousers, with gloves of course. This will not only keep you warm but help to break your fall if you do manage to fall over the odd time.
