North Coast Inline Skating School celebrates Skate for Health Day with free Rollerblading lessons this morning at the Cleveland Heights Community Center. Experts swear that the sport trims fat faster than a day at the gym. “It burns just as many calories as running or cycling -- with half the shock on your joints,” says Nick Skally, spokesman for skate manufacturer Rollerblade, which sponsors the nationwide program. At today’s event, newbies learn basics like balancing, turning, and the always-crucial stopping. “I’m always surprised at how many people don’t realize what a great workout the sport is,” says Skally. “It’s a better cardiovascular workout than using a stair-stepping machine.”
