Learning to ice skate can be a blast for any kid or adult. Growing up in the NE, the winters can be brutal. I always loved when a nearby lake froze over and we got to hit the ice on a sunny winter day. It would be so refreshing! Especially after a long cold spell spending longs day inside. As a kid that was torture, I much rather gone skating.
I think was around 9 or 10 I first tried out ice skating. I even took lessons when I first started. I think I picked up ice skating so fast because of those few classes giving me the fundamentals to really understand how to ice skate.
Check out this learn to ice skate video I came across.
I was a bit nervous when I started that I would fall and hurt myself. Or worse, just flat our embarrass my self. Hah, no one looks very cool falling on their butt!
I really enjoy ice skating. It is still something I do today, especially when I need to get away and focus of something else, ice skating is a good distraction. I always thought I could be an athlete, I’m big into sports and fitness. I have a few supplements I like to take which help me with focus at work and when I ice skate. I read an Alpha Brain review online which gave me the confidence to give the supplement a shot. Alpha Brain is produced from Onnit is a really great mental focus supplement. Lots of pro athletes have begun sponsoring the product and seem to all be behind it! I can’t complain about it, it has definitely helped me.
I try to mix in protein shakes, a daily multi-vitamin and fiber. This balance has really helped me out in so many aspects of my life. Not just skating! I’m definitely a stronger faster skater since I’ve incorporated supplements into my regiment.
Here are a couple of my favorite resources regarding health and fitness. I use tips from these pages regularly!
I hope you enjoy what you find!
