Dust off those ice skates because January is National Skating Month. Whether you are a complete beginner or you are a professional figure skater who can do a Quad Lutz and a Triple Axel with your eyes closed, skating is a super fun winter activity. The sport is almost as cool as playing in fresh snow! It’s only almost as cool because falling on ice hurts a bit; soft clean snow never hurt anyone.
Think you want to get into recreational figure skating? That is a great idea! How about you find an ice skating rink in your area and taking a field trip with some friends and co-workers! Just remember, figure skating isn’t one of those extreme sports/action sports where you think you are daredevil Evel Knievel so don’t go attempting any jumps as a beginner.
Get your balance and get proper training! Have fun promoting National Skating Month!
