Roller Derby is one of the fastest growing female sport phenomenons, growing huge traction around the world. Strong is the new skinny, and there is perhaps no other female-dominated sport that embodies this sentiment so completely. Roller Derby has its earliest incarnation in the 1880’s, and has been evolving and rocking the world ever since. This full-contact sport supports and emboldens female individuality, strength and comradery. There are leagues in many major cities, and a slew of fierce teams playing in those leagues. As far as exercise goes, the Roller Derby workout is definitely intense. Flying around a track at high speeds with 8 tiny wheels strapped to your feet demands agility, balance, speed, precision, strength and a whole lot of cardiovascular health. Ladies, if you want to embrace your inner speed demon without fronting the cash for a race car, this sport is definitely for you!
