Skate Fitness Tips for Your 2017 Workout

Is getting in shape one of your New Year’s resolutions? Miracle Skate can help. Skating is a great way for families in Madera to stay active and have fun. Here’s how you can make your skating fitness routine even better!

Health Benefits of Roller-Skating

If you’ve ever skated before, you know it’s a good exercise for your legs, glutes, and core. After all, those sore muscles didn’t just appear! But roller-skating is also one of the best exercises you can do for heart health. Check out these quick facts about skating fitness:

  • Skating 1 hour per week can burn 600 calories
  • Skating includes most muscle groups, including the arms
  • Skating builds muscle strength and endurance
  • Skating causes 50% less joint stress than running
  • Skating is safer than playgrounds, biking, and most organized sports

How to Improve Skate Fitness

Want to take your roller-skating workout to the next level? Here are our favorite tips!

  1. girl stretchingStretch it out. You can lower the risk of injury and improve your skating workout by doing some quick quad, calf, hamstring, hip, and glute stretches before hitting the rink.
  2. Stay moving. Gliding doesn’t burn calories. To make the most of your skating workout, skate actively. Zig-zag, skate backwards, and work your arms as you skate.
  3. Make it harder. Ankle weights are a great way to increase the difficulty of your workout. Choose weights that velcro closed so you don’t lose them (and cause a pileup).

Miracle Skate can help with the following resolutions:

  • Fitness! Did you know roller skating can burn up to 600 calories an hour? Who says you have to go to the gym to burn off those holiday calories? Make exercise fun and keep your fitness resolution by roller skating! It’s easy on the joints and a great way to get fit AND have fun with friends and family.
  • Spending more time with the family. This is a more common resolution than you think! We get so wrapped up in how busy we are that we forget what’s most important; family. We have plenty of specials, open skating and events throughout the year that are perfect for family bonding time.
  • Getting involved. Want to get more involved in the community in the New Year? Host a fundraiser with us! We love being able to give back to the community and encourage you to do the same.

And most of all, your resolution should be to HAVE MORE FUN! Isn’t that what skating is all about? We look forward to seeing all your bright and smiling faces as head into the New Year! Check out our most recent blog post on our fun New Year’s events, perfect for the whole family!

Special Events in December!

Can you believe we’re now in the last month of 2016? It happened so fast! We hope you and your family had a great time celebrating Thanksgiving last week and are enjoying some leftovers now!

One of our favorite traditions around Thanksgiving is to ask everyone on our team and in our family what they’re thankful for. We always get some great answers! We sat down again this year to think about what we’re thankful for, and we came up with a great list! We can’t fit everything in this blog, but we can fit a few!

Our Friends and Family

This of course is a given, but we can’t start a list like this without mentioning them. We don’t know where we would be without their support and willingness to help us. It makes every day worth it!

This Community

This Madera community is something we could never take for granted! Whether you’re supporting us through word of mouth about our birthday parties, online reviews, or smiling when you walk in the door to go skating, we appreciate you — you make running a roller rink fun!

Christmas Events

Speaking of which …

We love this community so much and want to give you as many chances to come have fun skating as we can! That’s why we’re bringing back one of our favorite specials around here this December.

December 19th – January 6th

From 1:30pm-4pm come by for admission and skate rental for only $4.75! You loved it for Veteran’s Day and Thanksgiving so we’re bringing it back! Just like during those two holidays, there’s another special! For $10  you will receive skate rental, admission, a slice of pizza, a soda and bounce on our bounce house with your friends!

Things To Do During Thanksgiving Week

Next week is the week of turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and probably even some pumpkin pie. That’s right, it’s the week of Thanksgiving! We’re almost officially in the holiday season, and we’re going to celebrate at Miracle Skate the best way we know how — with great discounts and specials! We’ll start off the weekend the same way we started Veteran’s Day!

Thanksgiving Events

That means it will be $4.75 for admission and skate rental  from 1:30-4:00pm on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday! But just like last time, if that’s not enough fun for your family, we have another special deal! For $10 you will get skate rental, admission, a slice of pizza, a soda and access to a bounce house! We’re bringing the bounce house back to the party at Miracle skate for families and friends all in Madera!

Quick side note, we will be closed on Thanksgiving. That way everyone can eat up, enjoy spending time with your family, and then get out with that same family the next day to make some memories on the skating rink!

We love being part of the Madera community and wouldn’t change it for the world. For more information about our special events through the year, be sure to take a look at our Facebook and Instagram page! You’ll be able to stay in the loop!

We hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving week celebrating all there is to be thankful for with friends and family. And don’t worry, it’s ok to take that extra slice of pie because you’ll be skating it off all week!

Veteran’s Day at Miracle Skate

Family activities in Madera for Veteran’s Day means one thing — roller skating. You have a day off of work, the kids are off school, and it’s time for a night to make memories together as a family! The team at Miracle Skate in Madera decided to open for extra hours and throw extra events to celebrate our country’s veterans.

American Flag

1:30-4:00pm

We’ll have a special offer of $4.75 for skate rental and admission to start off on Friday. But if that’s not enough for your skating family, we’ll also offer skate rental, admission, a slice of pizza, a soda and access to a bounce house for $10! You heard us right! We’re going to bring a bounce house to the party on Friday just for you. That’s an easy way to make memories, have dinner, and get exercise together as a family.

6:00pm-10:00pm

To end our night, we’re going to keep our weekly Friday deal! That’s all you can eat pizza and soda AND if you keep your wristband on you can skate on Saturday night for free. Pizza, soda, and skating go a long way when you’re making memories with friends! (Saturdays are our weekly Glow Party, too!)

Halloween Boo Bash

The Halloween Party Madera has been waiting for is here! Our team at Miracle Skate is excited to host our annual Boo Bash Party and celebrate Halloween. This Friday the 28th, we will be open from 6pm-10pm, but the party will really start to kick off around 7:30! Whether you come in an individual costume, group costume, or just regular clothes, we’re ready for you!. Here are the special Halloween activities we’ll have going on for you:

  • Bobbing for apples – a classic Halloween game that is a must try if you never have before!
  • Costume contest – we’ll have prizes to give away for the best costumes, too.
  • Mummy Wrap Contest – We’ll find out who can make the best mummy in Madera.
  • Jason is coming – Be alert when you come by on the 28th. Jason will be around sneaking and ready to scare you!

Halloween Boo Bash

We said special activities, remember? That means we’ll still have our usual All-You-Can-Eat Pizza and Soda deal going all night. There’s nothing like being scared, eating pizza, and dressing up in costumes with your friends. To top it all off, we’ll also let anyone back in for free on Saturday night for Club Glow if you keep their wristband on from Friday night.

We can’t wait to see the everyone and the costumes you come up with this Friday. It will be a Halloween Weekend you won’t forget. And remember — we have more Halloween events on our Fall Calendar, and we’ll be open on Halloween night until 9pm!

Trick-or-Treating Safety Tips

Can you believe it’s almost time to go trick-or-treating again? We hope you have found a costume idea and maybe you’ve already made it! We can’t wait to see what everyone brings to our Halloween parties this year! Speaking of which, we’ll be open on Halloween until 9pm this year and hope to see you there. Just like we stress safety at Miracle Skate, our team wanted to offer a few Halloween safety tips for your night of trick-or-treating.

Trick-or-treating safety tips

Lose the Mask

While masks can complete a costume, they’re also known to hinder your children’s vision. It’s already going to be dark out, do try to see if facepaint can stand in in place of a mask. That said, if a mask is a necessity, don’t ruin your child’s night, but keep an extra close watch as they walk door to door.

Flexible Props

Plastic swords, lightsabers, and shields all look great, but they’re also more likely to get caught on a bush or trip you up on a sidewalk. Try looking for props that are made of flexible material and still look the part.

Plan a Route

Last but not least, before you and your kids hit the neighborhood, print out a map and highlight the route you’re going to take. This way you can avoid any busy intersection and get an idea for how long you’ll be out. (So you can plan to be back and head to Miracle Skate!)
