    This is an exercise class! Please dress comfortably, wear sturdy shoes (no sandals or flip flops) and bring water. No drumming experience needed. All levels welcome…can even be done sitting down! Cardio Drumming combines movement with the beat and rhythm of drums for a fun, high energy workout. It brings together drumsticks, an exercise ball, an exercise ball stand (bucket), and rhythmic moves to create one of the most fun workouts you’ll ever do. Cardio drumming will raise your heart rate to help burn those calories, improve your coordination and ability to focus, and help strengthen many muscle groups, including your core. Studies have shown that when people find workouts they enjoy and have fun with, they’re more likely to stick with their routine.

    Equipment needed: 65 cm exercise ball, 5A basic drumsticks, and a 5 gallon bucket which can all be purchased at local retail stores or online.

    "Cardio drumming is so much fun you don't even know you're exercising!" –Nancy R.

    "Cardio drumming with Beth is one of the highlights of my week! Even if I have to drag myself there, I'm usually bouncing out at the end." – Sara R.

    This is an exercise class! Please dress comfortably, wear sturdy shoes (no sandals or flip flops) and bring water. No drumming experience needed. All levels welcome…can even be done sitting down!

    Cardio Drumming combines movement with the beat and rhythm of drums for a fun, high energy workout. It brings together drumsticks, an exercise ball, an exercise ball stand (bucket), and rhythmic moves to create one of the most fun workouts you’ll ever do. Cardio drumming will raise your heart rate to help burn those calories, improve your coordination and ability to focus, and help strengthen many muscle groups, including your core. Studies have shown that when people find workouts they enjoy and have fun with, they’re more likely to stick with their routine.

    Equipment needed: 65 cm exercise ball, 5A basic drumsticks, a 5 gallon bucket which can all be purchased at local retail stores or online.

    Register at least two days before each session.
