So it's too hot to go for a run and you'd like to take up biking, but purchasing a new road bike just isn't in your budget. Rollerblading is the next best thing since rollerblades are more affordable than bikes. This sport will tone your lower body and burn calories like running, but since you'll be moving faster the breeze will keep you cool. If you're a beginner, check out these tips.
When it comes to getting started:
Do: Rent a pair of rollerblades before you splurge on new equipment. If it becomes your new favorite thing, you can always invest in a pair of your own. Rent a helmet and also knee, wrist, and elbow pads. If you don't have a knowledgeable friend to take you out then signing up for a lesson is a superb idea.
