JOJO’S “COOL WORKOUT” CLASSES:
Classes at the rink at Rockefeller Center are perfect for all levels of adult recreational skaters and beginners. During JoJo’s Cool Workout Classes, skaters learn stroking, gliding, turns, spins, combinations and more all at their own pace. Bring a friend and have fun as you strengthen your core and legs, enhance your posture and balance, and get an awesome low impact cardio workout! The hour long classes take place Tuesdays and Thursdays; the focus of Tuesdays’ classes is often on Great 8 figures. (please see below for more info on Great 8’s)
Tuesdays/Thursdays: 7:30-8:30AM $60 per pre-registered class; $65 per “walk on” class
JOJO’S GREAT 8’S CLASS
Compulsory school figures…they are the foundation for EVERY skating move! Sadly, they were removed from World and Olympic competitions about 20 years ago. However, recently, there has been a resurgence of interest in them!
JoJo judged the first World Figure Championship in Lake Placid, NY in 2015 with a group of World and Olympic Champions. This gentle, elegant discipline is incredibly challenging! It teaches tremendous skill for all of skating and really tones your muscles!
Come join us to develop your balance, core strength and control while gliding around your figure 8’s. You’ll learn all the turns and edges during these classes. Each skater has their own strip of ice from barrier to barrier, to practice their edges and 8’s. It’s a beautiful way to focus on these basic, yet challenging techniques.
Here’s all you need to get started:
- Dress in warm layers that you can peel off as you warm up.
- Wear a hat and gloves and wrist guards are good too.
- Wear thin socks or tights under your skates.
- Learn to lace up your skates correctly. For more info click here.
- Owning decent skates can greatly enhance your enjoyment and advancement.
- A good teacher who knows the basics well, is fun, patient and encouraging.
- An adventurous attitude and PATIENCE!
- Bend your knees, breathe and have fun!
Classes average 8-12 skaters.
Fees are $65 per class, or $60 per class if you take more than half of the classes each month (most months have 8 classes). Classes include exclusive use of the rink for one hour, coaching from JoJo and/or her staff, continental breakfast and rental skates if needed. Some classes are postponed due to weather conditions.
