We know the importance of having a local skate scene, let alone a local skate shop and though it sucks not being downtown...we are going to try our best to stayed tied in to downtown Concord to provide you the best possible on-line shopping experience while continuing to support the local scene!

We DO still offer area lessons! Learn to Skate or Roller Skate with US!

Roller Skating Classes? Thank you DL!


Hey Friends!

Roller Skating Classes, hmm what does that mean? For many of you the name Derby Lite comes to mind. Well, this past January our Certified Trainer & Shop Owner, "Spanks" was given the option to leave the Derby Lite Franchise as they made some structural changes.

We love Derby Lite & are very thankful for the time, energy & resources put out by their crew to build the ground-work for teaching Roller Fitness globally! We will continue with that tradition and wonderful mindset as we continue to train skaters!

Fortunately, Spanks and her other trainers decided to keep on training people! So from the "learn how to skate, getting fit roller skates, to upping the game for their roller derby ventures" to clarify the classes are done now through our shop, at satellite locations through-out NH and through-out the US via training clinics or regional events.

So the Fall 2016 is upon us, no better time than now to lace up those skates.

Are you interested in learning to roller skate? Have gear? Used to play roller derby? Used to be a Artistic skater? Need a solid work-out? A personal trainer?

Join us!

Next "Fit-You" class starts this Thursday! Still space available!

"New-To" & "Derby-Me" need more registrants before we schedule, send us an email to pre-register and get your name on a wait-list! We have classes for each level available, however our facilities do require a min head count for scheduling us.
