Why this program?
There are many videos out there that teach beginner skills, but over a decade of coaching beginners we know that detailed explanations are key for new skaters to grasp new skills. We don’t just tell you how to do the move, but we break down the steps of how to get there. We follow a tested progression plan that will have you rolling safely and confidently.
We recommend pausing the videos as you work on each skill, and re-watching them as many times as you need. You should feel comfortable with the skills before progressing to the next video. This helps to prevent injury and will make your skating far more enjoyable.
Once you download the program, all you need to do is lace up your skates, put your protective gear on and be prepared for coaching from some of our most popular RollerFit coaches right in your own home.
