Time Out (Melbourne) - - THINGS TO DO - Re­becca Russo

THESE ONE- HOUR CLASSES are built around im­prov­ing car­dio en­durance, flex­i­bil­ity, core strength, agility and bal­ance on four wheels. You don’t need to be a whiz on skates to par­take in Roller­fit. The only pre­req­ui­site is the abil­ity to laugh at your­self once you’ve taken your up­teenth tum­ble.we work our way through ba­sic drills, core ex­er­cises and stop­ping (though skat­ing into the gym’s walls is a good fall­back plan). I start sweat­ing at the get-go, mov­ing mus­cles I never knew ex­isted and high-fiv­ing fel­low skaters who’ve also taken falls. Even though I’ve spent the ma­jor­ity of the class on my back­side, I make plans to re­turn the fol­low­ing week, men­tally pre­par­ing for the in­com­ing bruises, which I’ll no doubt be show­ing off, glee­fully, to any­one who asks.
