FitView Roller Fitness & Modesto On Ice

FitView Roller Fitness
by Efren Martinez


Four wheels per leg multiplied by two equals Roller Skating Fitness! It’s been years since I put on some roller skates; they pretty much went into storage shortly after Roller King closed its doors. Since then I’ve seen the sport of roller skating evolve into roller-blades, long-board skateboards and some crazy kind of skating contraptions that use your entire body to propel you forward. They all do a great job when it comes to getting your workout with wheels on your feet.  In fact, a 160-pound person will burn about 548 calories doing 60 minutes of roller skating, while a 200-pound person will burn about 683 calories in that same amount of time. As for me, I’m old-school and prefer 4 wheels on my skates instead of two. Inline skating is cool, but I’m thinking inline skating might be a bit harder and if you haven’t skated in a while. It’s probably best to start back with the basics, 4 wheels per skate instead of advancing to inline skating first. Ready, Set, Go! Because our Downtown Rockin’ Holidays are now in full swing, along with Modesto’s Spirit of Giving Run, “Chase the Grinch out of Modesto”, along with our downtown ice skating rink, “Modesto On Ice”.

About the Author:

I answered the call back in 1983; mixing Music and Entertainment with an eccentric European style has always come easy for me. In the early 80's I was the Disc Jockey for most of the high school dances in Modesto. In the late 80's I found myself in Hollywood working as a dancer and sound engineer for various professional recording industries. In 1990 my wife of 25 years and I started (The Quake Mobile DJ ®) which was seeded from San Francisco's 1985, The Quake, radio station that only lasted a short while on the air. 26 years later The Quake Mobile DJ is bigger & better than ever in the Entertainment industry. Real-Estate, photojournalism, event promoter, saving animals, travel and fitness are a few other of my interests. I also enjoy motivational speaking to children and to those who are struggling with addiction. In my life, I have always been a very direct person and once I see a goal I won't quit till I've achieved it. But out of all of the above I feel in my heart that the best inspiration in my life is my wife and my love for the faith that I practice. Phil 4:20
