Our new community building, The Hub, is hosting free cardio drumming workshops for children and adults in February and March.
Cardio drumming is a unique and fun way of exercising and increasing your stamina, motivation and focus. The workshops are free for residents from Foxhill, Mulberry Park and Combe Down.
What is cardio drumming?
Cardio drumming takes a simple movement (drumming) and turns it into a full-body workout that leaves you smiling, sweating and feeling great. Studies show that when you enjoy a workout you’re more likely to do it again and make it part of a routine.
What happens at a cardio drumming workshop?
Each workshop includes rhythm, exercise and relaxation.
Cardio drumming is suitable for everyone, you’ll learn rhythms and exercise at a level appropriate to your fitness.
The workshop starts with a warm up and then different rhythms and movements. This is followed by a High Intensity Training session of one minute intervals of intensive drumming at a pace that is comfortable yet challenging with varying levels of rhythm exercises.
Studies show that High Intensity Training increases cardiovascular fitness and promotes healthy blood glucose levels.
