Anyone who wants to try out roller skates, there are a lot of varieties which suit just about everyone. They can be used for all kinds of sports, like polo or just figure skating, but primarily they give fun to even the amateur. After the set has been bought, roller skate wheels can be changed when necessary to upgrade the boot as the user becomes more confident with the speed. The history of this sport goes back as far as the mid seventeen hundred when the inventor wore a pair to a party but did not do so well on them. After that, he tended to leave them alone, but intrepid inventors then redesigned the look so that they were now the ‘in line’ variety. This is because they wanted to emulate the ice dancers of the time to make the sport that much more popular.
About a century later a new boot was invented which enabled the user to be able to turn as the ice dancers, and this now is where the beginner could make some great moves. Men would do turns and spins, to impress ladies of course, and then racing games were invented so that the sport could morph into all kinds of different games. Within twenty years rinks sprang up around the country and this was how the sport became even more popular.
If one thinks of these rinks and family fun, it sort of smacks of the nineteen fifties where people had not so many places to visit and hang out but the popularity just keeps on going. During the seventies, when popular music took the world by storm, the sport was reborn yet again with disco rinks becoming popular and modern dance could be practiced while whizzing along. Of course, what helped this along was the invention of plastic floors and new materials which made it much easier for people to have a go at the sport.
Indeed, if people knew how many calories that they can burn up they would be out wheeling around all day to get their heart rates up and shed some unwanted fat. This sport gives anyone a complete workout aerobically and involves all of the muscle groups. The heart association recommends it, and this is a must for those who want to feel fitter when exercising.
