The ‘perfect body’ ideal has become a goal to a rather large part of human population these past few years. Especially women, who take the idea very seriously while totally forgetting the fact that there are types of body-constructions as there are human beings on this planet. Ergo, ‘perfect’ is a very relative term.
Back in the 90’s, supermodels and actresses, with Claudia Schiffer, Elle MacPherson and Cindy Crawford being the leading faces in their respective industries, made the largest part of the fitness-addict pie. Or maybe they had to undergo a fitness regimen to maintain those envious figures. Their practices were rather simple and came down to using few tools and equipment to actually sweat the few extra kilograms. Among the most commonly practised activity was roller blading, which was kind of neglected for a short period, but slowly regained its popularity.
Roller blading is a great sport – it’s an outdoor activity, which means you won’t be suffocated by all the smells and the heavy air of a gym. It’s quite fun as you get to go wherever you want, plus, it’s easy – all you need to do comes down to few very simple steps.
First, get your roller blades and equipment
Maybe you did have a pair of roller blades as a kid. Children of the 90’s grew in the period when the last days of fame of these cult boots on wheels were in motion. However, even if you do own a pair, it’s very likely that they don’t fit you anymore. Luckily, you can take a look at the offers of an online skate shop Australia to choose your model. Make sure you choose a good online skate shop Australia based, as you want to be able to check the credentials of your chosen retailer. After all, you’re shopping with your credit card so the least you want is a level of credibility.
Make it a habit
You need about 21 days to turn something into a habit. So make a schedule; how many days and at what hours exactly could you be able to put on your roller blades and leave your home? Moreover, find a partner to break the monotony and to make you keep the promise; exercising is always better, more fun and way more effective when done in pair.
Focus on the physical gains
Find someone, a celebrity maybe like Alessandra Ambrosio – Victoria’s Secret Angel (because, really, what better motivation than her), who practices roller blading to sculpt and tone muscles and get a photo of her on a wall you pass by every day. That way you’d constantly be reminded of what you want to achieve and be motivated to put on your roller blades, helmet and protective gear and hit the roller blading tracks big time!
