Kids whiz past on wheeled sneakers at a small stretch of the road at Eenjakkal Juction. You are taken in by their confidence, poise and the easy glides by which they traverse the roads. This tough balancing act is done to perfection on roller skaters! Yes, Roller Skating has now become an exercise option for most city kids as they zip around back and forth displaying their skating skills. Roller skating has gained this kind of popularity due to its multiple health benefits, akin to aerobics that involves using all your body's muscles. It is even considered a better substitute for running and cycling as there are lesser chances of joint stress. What's better is that even if you do get tired you can slow down, pick up some breath and continue coasting along. - Says Al-Ameen Skating Coach at Spark Roller Skating Academy - The Hindu.
