As a 25 year old adult male beginner, what would you recommend for learning to Ice Skate?
Weren't you 18 the other day?
I'd suggest you do the teen/adult class, to learn the very basics. You can also get the "lay of the land" at the rink, and see if there are other adults in the other classes the rink offers. If there are, you'd most likely feel comfortable taking those classes. If there are not, you're completely welcome to jump right into private lessons - in fact, you can do that whenever you'd like, even doing that instead of taking the teen/adult class, if you'd prefer. I jumped right into private lessons. I never took a group class. There wasn't one offered for adults where I decided to start skating. But if there is one offered, and there are adults in it, it's a cheaper way to learn the very basics.
If you’re a real person and not a troll then I recommend you look for a program that offers lessons based on the ISI program, not the USFSA program. ISI is for the recreational through competitive skater. We see skaters in their 80’s competing at local, national and World events. They also offer more adult learn to skate programs

Do what makes you happy Chief.
Most rinks offer an adult only class for basic skills so I recommend you look into that :). I recommend you start off with group lessons first then private lessons after you at least passed Basic 3. This is because by then, you’ll be starting to learn harder elements and everyone learns in a different pace. I assure you won’t be the only adult practicing nor adult man. In my rink, there’s a pretty good group of adults and I’ll see two middle age men practice with me in a Freestyle session. Have fun skating! :)
