What does an Ice Skater do?

An Ice Skater competes in athletic events and competitions by skating and dancing on ice. As an Ice Skater, you put a tremendous amount of effort into your training.

It’s not just a hobby for you. Professional skating could lead to the Olympics, ice skating shows and tours, endorsement deals, and more. All of that amounts to a big incentive to put in the time so you’ll get the results you want.

Most professional Ice Skaters start training at a young age. At this level, you have to get up early for practice and make a lot of sacrifices — time, energy, paying for Ice Skating Coache and Trainers — but the payoff can be huge. If you’re good enough to go pro, don’t worry; you wont miss your opportunity. Somebody will tell you — and it won’t come as a surprise to you, either, after winning all those trophies and local competitions.

Daily practice involves working out in the gym, lifting weights, stretching, running, and of course, going through your routine out on the ice. Skating on ice is second nature to you, almost more comfortable than walking. Once you’ve picked out your best sparkly outfit and perfected your triple axle, you’re ready for the big leagues. Stay fit, stay focused, and keep your eye on the prize and your skates on the ice.
