Zoom Meetings

Cardio Drummingcardio drumming

Cardio drumming takes a simple movement - drumming - and turns it into a full-body workout that will leave you smiling, glistening, and feeling great. Don’t have a ball or sticks at home? Try using a pillow on the back of the sofa and wooden spoons for drumsticks. Using the exercise ball (or pillow) as your drum, and mixing in fun moves, cardio drumming turns tapping the beat to a song into a workout you won’t want to stop! Feel the beat and join the fun!
