    It is quite clear that this type of exercise is a vigorous-intensity sports activity.
    From the chart above, we know that a 150-pound person rollerblading at speed of 15 mph can burn up to 1000 calories per hour.
    This is an amazing burning rate compared to some other exercises, such as running and biking.

    Calories burned in 9- to 14-Year-Old Children

    A study published in Journal of Physical Activity and Health [2]revealed that rollerblading and riding a scooter were vigorous-intensity physical activities.

    The findings of this study indicated that Mean child MET costs for the household chores ranged from 1.3 to 3.6 METs. Rollerblading and riding a scooter yielded mean child MET costs of 6.5 and 6.3 METs respectively.

    Therefore, a 100-pound child will burn 6.5×3.5×100×0.453 ÷ 200 = 5.15 calories per minute while Rollerblading at an average speed of 5.36 mph (2.4 m/s). He can burn up to 5.15 × 60 = 309 calories per hour during rollerblading.
