Drums Alive! : A fun way to get fit

We all know it’s easy to get bored with the same old fitness routine.  It is important to find exercises that help your mind escape from the mundane and negative associations with your routine.  And yes, they do exist.   Drums Alive is a workout that will get you out of your routine and spice up your fitness life.

Drums Alive is a unique group- exercise class that is different from every other workout.  This workout originated in Germany as a powerful way to increase blood circulation, improve neurological responsiveness and enhances spirits.  Drums Alive captures the essence of movement, rhythm and fun while delivering real fitness results.

Participants will get a full body workout using aerobic movements.  The footwork, stretching and reaching, as you drum to the rhythm of the music, will get your heart and adrenaline pumping.  A make-shift drum is created using a stability ball placed atop a step riser.  The instructor will provide drumsticks and motivating music to create a high-energy atmosphere.

Drums Alive Fitness Instructor at Big Vanilla Athletic Club in Pasadena, Tiffany Stephens, describes this workout as the ultimate fat burning exercise with many physical and psychological benefits:

“It’s a program for everyone that works the entire body.  Rhythm and movement in the form of drumming is an ancient technique for increasing heart rate, blood circulation and energy causing an increased level of endorphins, evoking an ecstatic experience,” says Stephens.

Big Vanilla Athletic Club in Pasadena is hosting Drums Alive classes on the following dates:

Fridays- January 14th, February 11th, March 11th, April 22nd, from 7-8:00pm Saturdays- January 15th, February 12th, March 12th, April 23rd from 11-12:00pm.
