About Me

Greetings, I’m Aidas Reklys creator of Skate Universal. I created Skate Universal because skating is my passion. By sharing my devotion and knowledge of the sport I hope to improve any level skaters performance, technique, understanding, and love of the sport.

Originally from Lithuania, I had been living and coaching in Chicago area for about 8 years. Now I live and coach in California area.  Being a world competitor and professional coach has allowed me opportunities to travel around the world. I’ve had the chance to learn and share many different training techniques at seminars, camps, and shows. As a personal trainer and a skater, I have the unique ability to incorporate the two disciplines for optimal benefit of the skater.

If you or your rink is interested in hosting one of my seminars, or you have other questions, visit the contact me page for information on how to get in touch with me.
