A skating session that's all about exercise rather than rolling freely, RollerFit finally arrived in Brisbane a few years back — and, post COVID-19 lockdowns, it wants you to go for a spin. Two days a week, you can hit the rink at the YMCA Bowen Hills, with separate one-hour sessions for beginners just learning to skate and intermediate to advanced speedsters.
Yep, if this is the first time you've ever even thought about living out your Whip It or Xanadu dreams, don't worry — you're covered. The novice class takes place on Tuesdays from 7–8pm, while the more experienced skaters lace up on Wednesday nights at the same time.
Dropping in costs $25, or you can take that down to $20 if you plan to visit regularly and sign up for a $25 membership. Five, ten and 20-class passes are also on offer, which can bring your per-session fee down to $14.
If you don't have your own wheels, you can also rent them for an extra $5 per session. Rental covers sizes 5–13, and it's a first-come, first-served kind of deal unless you email a week in advance.
