I would suggest doing some skating specific exercises as well.
To be honest I think this may be one severely over looked area for new skaters.
Your ability to do things on skates depends on the ability of you muscles to do them and to support those actions.
Including your core muscles.
Look up some info on the web or get a book like the one from Peter Twist (former Canuck trainer).
Really you could put a lot of time in strengthening without having to worry about ice time plus you exercise these muscles in a controlled manner.
Wish I would have known this when I was younger.
