In-Line Skating Instructor - Jan Nekolny

Jan has been skating ever since he learned to ice skate in Prague, Czech Republic when he was five years old.

Specializing in recreational, fitness and speed skating. Whether your goal is to skate around Stanley Park or skate a marathon, a lesson will give you confidence to skate safely with good technique.

As seen in The Canadian Press, Jan has been inline skating in Vancouver for the past 20 years. His favourite places to inline skate are the Stanley Park Seawall, from English Bay to Science World and the 10km Seymour Valley Trail on the North Shore for fitness, speed and endurance.

"You really know your stuff! I found the group lesson very professional. You were able to address all our individual needs. I finally found the technique to stop which gives me total confidence to rollerblade on my own. Thanks!" — Marela
"Jan, I came to you to help build my confidence on rollerblades and you delivered beautifully. Since our lesson, I now have the tools and skills to allow me to enjoy my rollerblading experience without worrying whether I will hurt myself or - more importantly - others! Most of all, I now get out almost daily for a little bit of exercise and to enjoy the many routes available in Vancouver. I will keep your name handy when friends or others need some pointers. Thank you!" — Pierre Thériault

Jan — Your teaching style is just what I needed! Patient & fun! I enjoyed learning turns, balance drills and most of all, stopping! You Rock! I will be back! — Lucie Walker - Rockin' Country Blues Singer


Cone Drills - Jim & Darlene

Thank you very much for the lesson. Both Darlene and I learned so much (stopping, turns, proper skating technique, balance drills) and would definitely recommend you to both novices and those with experience looking to improve on their blading. I have much more confidence in my blading ability thanks to your help. Thanks again — Jim Franklin
Thank you for teaching me the basics of in-line skating. Knowing how to stop has given me a tremendous boost to my confidence! — Goldy Bhangav
You are definitely energetic and passionate about inline skating. After doing your 5 hour Value Package, I can see how it is easy to learn to skate safely with the assistance of a certified instructor. I enjoyed your fun and easy to follow teaching style. I now know how to stop going down a hill and turn properly. You have given me lots of exercises to become more confident compared to trying to learn myself and risk injuring myself. I would not be able to learn so much in such a short time frame if I did not have any lessons. I appreciate all your help and feedback. I am grateful that I did not fall or injure myself thanks to your expertise. I will continue to practice what you have taught me. Thank-you very much! — Sabrina Li
