Playing Why Is Roller Skating Having a Revival?

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a surge in roller skating, due to it being a very safe outdoor activity -- and it turns out it is great for your health as well.

The Doctors welcome 3 roller skating enthusiasts CocoDirty Deborah, and Oumi to discuss the resurgence of roller skating, which has seen a 1000 percent jump in sales in skates in recent months. 

Deborah tells us the pandemic has forced indoor skaters outdoors, due to roller rinks being closed, and it helped remind people how fun skating is and also helped inspire a whole new generation of people to begin skating.

In addition to being a fun pastime, roller skating is a great cardio workout that uses up to 80 percent of the body's muscles. In fact, just 1 hour of skating can burn up to 650 calories

If you are interested in skating, Coco says beginners should aim to know the basics: how to stop, how to get up, and how to properly fall.
