    Just wondering if anyone uses ice skating as a way to stay trim and tone the legs especially? How many times a week do you go or should you go? lol
    Any certain ways to skate to work more and how long should you skate for?
    Just thought I would ask as I used to go skating alot when I was younger for days at a time and then I stopped and started gaining a bit of weight :eek:

    I do! I used to go everyday after school to train and all, I have to say it definitely does an amazing job of toning your legs, because of the added weight of the boot when you skate.

    If you're doing it to lose weight maybe just skate around the rink (crossovers to increase speed) because I think that's a better cardio work out. Jumps and spins use up short bursts of energy and therefore would be a more ineffectual except for personal pleasure.

    I used to go once a week, but in all fairness I do live an hour or so away from the local rink. My skates are dusty now though I miss it. I don't know if it kept me fit, I just did it for fun.
