Why We Love: ROLLER DERBY!

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!
