Derby Fit, the challenging workout on roller skates, is back at Greenwood Playground this summer on Saturday mornings. You don’t need to know how to skate like a pro, but you do need to be able to get around without holding onto anything. Here’s how it works:

A typical Derby Fit class consists of 10-15 minutes of jogging and dynamic movement to warm up, followed by land drills to build the muscles used in skating. Then skates are put on for 1-1.5 hours of skating drills. All drills are non contact and focus on skating fundamentals and cardio endurance.

The first session is on June 1 at 9am. The 8-week session costs $165, but drop-in classes are also available at $30 per class. Registration ends on Friday, May 24. Contact Shana at for more info.

Has anyone done it in the past? What did you think?
