A mix of skiing and rollerblading, the Scandinavian sport is the closest you can get to cross country skiing without snow.
If you’re after a sport to build stamina and condition your body in the inimitable way that cross-country skiing does, but without having to book a flight to the french alps, then roller skiing is the perfect solution .Roller skiing was born from cross country skiing and is often used as the basis of summer training for cross country skiers. It is a low-impact, full-body exercise that is great for core body strength, balance and overall fitness whilst being a great way to train, and can be added to your training regime to make working out more interesting. As the sport is low-impact the entire family can enjoy the workout regardless of age or ability so there’s no reason to not give it a go!
