Fitness Friday!

Drums Alive is this fabulous new exercise class I am teaching! It combines basic 'aerobics' class steps, dancing, music, drumming, and FUN to make an awesome whole-body and brain workout! I took a class in April and about half-way through...I felt like I just had to teach this.

You can do this in your own house with an exercise ball (make a circle out of a blanket to hold the ball in place), upside-down garbage can, chair, even your bed. Grab some wooden spoons or chop sticks...turn on the music and drum it out. All ages! All ability levels (I took one class sitting down the whole time).

Its a great way to teach kids rhythm and to have fun while getting some exercise. It also helps maintain your neuropathways. Try it out.

Someone came and demoed this at TB's school last year and it looked like so much fun! :)
All the kids wanted a turn to do it
