Turn the Outdoors into Your Very Own Gym

Inline Skating is one of the best full body workouts out there. It provides a fun, low impact, and highly aerobic workout that you can do solo or with a group. It’s also the perfect off-season conditioning for skiing (trust us, we know).

 Whether you are an advanced skater or just getting out for the occasional workout, here are some fun workout options to mix things up, that are sure to get you #k2inlinefit!

 (Not all workouts require a pair of skates, but if you want to try the ones that do and are in need of new skates, check out the full line K2 Skate Lineup)


Skater-Step-Ups-640x640

Stand facing a bench with hands at hip level. Firmly plant left foot flat on bench and lean chest forward slightly. Step up on left leg and drive right knee up to 90-degree angle. Return to starting position by stepping back with right leg, touch foot back to ground. Be sure to work both legs.

Plank-Up-640x640

With skates on, begin in plank position, hands under shoulders, back flat, balanced on front wheels. Engaging core, roll front wheels towards hands, raising hips up, keeping legs straight to pike position. Lower back into starting position.

Speed-Skaters-640x533

 Stand with feet hip-width apart, arms by sides. Hop to right, landing on right foot while sweeping left foot diagonally behind right leg and swinging left arm across body and right arm behind back. Jump to left, switching legs and arms to complete.

Tricep-Dips-640x640

With skates on, sit on a bench. Place hands shoulder-width apart on bench and slide forward off of the bench,  remaining in seated position. Slowly lower your body towards the ground, knees bent, wheels flat on the ground until your elbows reach a 90-degree angle. To raise up, slowly straighten your arms while lifting back up to starting position.
