Ice skating is good for fitness and fun

-A A +A

People ask me why I moved here from Anchorage, Alaska, and one of the biggest reasons is the ice rink.

I grew up mostly skating indoors, training in the figure skating world. When I moved to Alaska I loved skating outdoors on frozen lakes. The winters just simply got to be too brutal.

When I came to look at Los Alamos as a place to move, I noticed that the rink was so beautifully nestled ever so sweetly in the canyon. At night when it is all lit up you feel like you are in a winter wonderland.

The skating season will begin soon. In December, skating lessons will begin and will assist the whole family in learning skills to enjoy the sport one step further. The curriculum we have provided for lessons is informative, safe and fun.

The first thing when learning to skate is actually learning to fall correctly. Safety and injury prevention is of utmost importance.

Many new skaters tend to lean back when they fall and the skates tend to slip out from underneath them. When that occurs, hitting the head is common and can be serious at times.
