Everybody is always looking for an interesting new way to exercise. What if there was something that’s cool, fun and incredibly effective?
Former Olympic figure skating medalist and world champion JoJo Starbuck says skating is something that changed her life and she thinks it can change yours, too.
With her partner Ken Shelley, JoJo won three U.S. titles, two World bronze medals and competed in both the 1968 and 1972 Olympics, and she says you don’t have to be a world-class skater to reap the benefits of getting on the ice.
Despite the fact that she has coached several Olympians, she says her favorite students are adults. JoJo explains how skating benefits the body and the brain and says this is more important than ever for her aging students. As she approaches 65 herself, she reveals the many ways skating keeps her body and mind healthy.
JoJo also explains describes how learning to skate can help prevent devastating future falls, even in older students who’ve never skated before.
