Get fit roller-derby style with new classes by the Mountain Town Maulers in Cranbrook

Looking for a unique way to get that New Year’s Resolution going?

The Mountain Town Maulers have a perfect fitness regime for you: Get Derby Fit!

Cranbrook’s roller derby team is offering the course for women who are interested in learning the in and out turns of derby skating, and to get them prepped to join the team.

“There’s no butt like a roller derby butt,” the team said in a recent release.

The course is not just for skaters, but will provide a great introduction to Flat Track Roller Derby. It can also provide women who just want something a little different with a welcoming, all-woman environment to improve fitness and have some fun. Both beginner and intermediate skaters are welcome to attend.

“We will lead you in high energy classes for beginner and intermediate skaters where you will become healthier, physically and mentally, as you learn to skate ‘a la roller derby’ without the pressure of impact or competition,” said the release.

The workouts will be two hours each and will start with a dynamic warm-up, then move into on-skate skills and drills, core strength exercises and cool down stretching.

“It’s a balanced whole body workout that’s never boring, shows amazing results week after week, and brings you into a welcoming community of women like no other,” the release says.

The Maulers will host an info session on January 26 at 12:30 p.m. at the St. Mary’s Elementary gym. The class will begin on February 2 and run until March 9 from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Every Saturday. Classes will also take place at the St. Mary’s Elementary gym, 1701 – 5th Street South.
