When you skate, you blast mega calories!

Rollerblade Magazine (Nov. 10, 2010)
Well OK, rollerblading is a soft sport. You will find many positive points in skating: easy to do, not hard for your body, easy to feel good sensations, ecologist… Millions of people are skating all around the world, in a way or another, in the streets or in a club. Recently, a US magazine explained that Rollerblading was also good for your health, and that it makes you lose fat. “It is time to slip back into skates. We promise you’ll blast mega calories and enjoy every second.” Some good news, definitively!

Rollerblade Spiritblade XTStill the best butt-firmer around: it's time to slip back into skates! We promise you'll blast mega calories and enjoy every second
(Oct. 2010)
* In 1995, in-line skating was the hot workout, but since then it has lost its appeal. We found a reason for a revival: The Rollerblade Spiritblade XT ($100; rollerblade.com), a beginner-friendly skate that feels sturdier than its predecessors and has extra wide wheels for better stability (oh, the scars we could have avoided!). With these babies you'll torch more than 700 calories an hour and sculpt your butt and thighs. You can also boost your street-skating confidence by surfing the how-to videos on the Rollerblade site for turning, building speed, and doing a heel stop.

Rollerblade Speedmachine RX 110

(Nov. 10, 2010)
Rollerblade Speedmachine RX 110This is one of the most luxurious skates ever made: the Speedmachine RX 110. Rollerblade did not put on the market a normal skate: the Speedmachine RX 110 is a top product designed for expert skaters. With a 4x110mm frame, the skates are clearly dedicated to speed skaters who are used with big wheels and fast speeds. The carbon shell (Rollerblade's Fiber Tech) makes them very precise and very light and the ratcheting buckle with micro-adjustment aims to fit them perfectly.

If you are interested in top products, if you want the best of the best, don't hesitate anymore! The Rollerblade Speedmachine RX 110 is the one! But you will have to tame the beast! The product is like a Formula 1, easy to fit, easy to get high speeds, but a rocket must be domesticated… You will have to be sure that you masteries corners, stops and stuff on the ground. You will have to put a helmet on your head and some protections on your arms and your knees. Well, how do you think a speed car driver fits before a competition?

The 7 best fat-blasters

By Su Reid-St. John (Oct. 18, 2010)
We all have days when there's no time to get to the gym. So we wondered: Which close-to-home cardio activities blast fat fastest?
Wonder no more. Here are the top seven fat-and-calorie burners, from Los Angeles based celeb trainer Ramona Braganza, who has helped shape the amazing bodies of stars like Jessica Alba, Halle Berry, and Anne Hathaway.

Try any one of these, and you'll boost your metabolism for up to a whole day afterward. One small workout, one giant payoff.
  1. Inline skating (Burns 425 calories in 30 minutes)

    Surprised? While skating might be so much fun you forget you're actually working out, it's also numero uno on our list when it comes to blasting fat and calories.

    The big burn stems from the side-to-side movement of your thigh and butt muscles (demanding more from your body than the straightforward motion of our number-two activity -- running). And your core gets involved in a big way to keep you balanced.

    What's more, you get all these benefits without putting too much stress on your knees and other joints. Skate at a strong, steady pace. Don't forget your helmet, wrist guards, and knee and elbow pads.

    Boost the burn: Alternate one minute of hard skating with one minute of medium-paced strokes.

  2. Running (Burns 374 calories in 30 minutes)

    The typical runner's shape is sleek and lean, and there's a reason for that: The major running muscles -- legs, butt, core -- happen to be the biggest calorie-and-fat-burning muscles in your body.

    To get the most out of each stride, swing your arms close to your body, don't lean forward, and keep your feet low to the ground. To lessen impact, land on the middle of your foot, then roll through to your toes.

    Boost the burn: Alternate fast and slow intervals, or take to the hills.

  3. Jumping rope (Burns 340 calories in 30 minutes)

    You knew this workout had to be high on the list. After all, it's one of pro boxers' favorite ways to train.

    To get the most from each jump, use a rope with handles that reach to just under your armpits when you stand on the middle of it, and follow these top-form tips: Jump with your feet slightly apart and body upright, and keep your jumps low to the ground. Don't have a rope? You'll get the same benefits by doing the movements rope-free.

    Boost the burn: Frequently switch up your speed (slow, fast) and style (jumping with one foot, then two feet), or jump rope while you jog.

  4. Hula hooping (Burns 300 calories in 30 minutes)

    There's a reason Marisa Tomei and Beyoncé hoop to keep their bodies beautiful -- it's a major fat-and-calorie torcher. To do it yourself, grab an adult-sized hoop (they're larger and heavier than kids' hoops, making them easier to spin); you'll know you have the right size if it reaches your chest when you stand it up in front of you.

    No fancy moves required, either. Simply keep it going around your waist. To start, stand with one foot in front of the other and shift your weight back and forth (versus around in a circle). And don't worry if you're less than perfect at first; you'll still knock off major calories, plus get better every time you spin.

  5. Tennis (Burns 272 calories in 30 minutes)

    Don't think you need to round up a partner or trek all the way to a court to break a super sweat with racket in hand. (Though if you have a pal and a nearby net, you'll burn the same calories.) Simply find a flat area near a wall or garage door that you can hit the ball against.

    Alternate forehand and backhand shots -- then see how many you can do in a row without goofing. Stand 10 to 25 feet away, which will force you to hit harder. Even practicing your serve will get your body in burn mode, because you'll have to run and bend to pick up your missed balls.

    Boost the burn: Try to hit the ball consistently for 50 or 100 strokes. "Having a goal will make you work harder to reach it," Braganza says.

  6. Dancing (Burns 221 calories in 30 minutes)

    This may not be the biggest calorie-burner in the bunch, but it's still an excellent -- and fun! -- metabolism booster. (Just look at Kelly Osbourne, who jump-started her amazing 42-pound loss on Dancing with the Stars.)

    The key is to keep the tempo high, choosing songs with fast rhythms like Latin or Bollywood, and don't rest between songs.

    Try Braganza's favorite trick: Download a workout's worth of your favorite tunes. Begin with an upbeat inspirational song think "Just Dance" by Lady Gaga, then move on to songs with increasingly faster tempos. Slow the beat toward the end to cool down.

    Boost the burn: Use your arms! Raise them in the air and move them to the beat.

  7. Walking vigorously (Burns 170 calories in 30 minutes)

    That's right, walking actually made our list. Full disclosure, though: A leisurely stroll with a friend won't cut it. You should be walking briskly enough that it's difficult to keep up a steady conversation.

    To get the most from your biggest calorie-burning muscles -- legs, butt, and core -- take short, quick steps, keep your torso upright, and pump your arms back and forth (not side to side) in time with your stride. With each step, land on your heel and roll through to your toes.

    Boost the burn: Alternate two minutes of brisk strides with one minute of as-fast-as-you-can-go walking (or jogging).
