I went to the gym this morning. I have 5 different circuit training workouts that I alternate. You would think that with five I wouldn't get bored, but I do sometimes. Fortuitously, just as I was getting ready to start, I ran into one of the trainers I know who was getting ready to teach her work-out class. She told me I should come take it this morning because we'd be drumming!
Yeah, no kidding!
We warmed up with some boxing moves and high kicks and a few laps. And then we started drumming. The set up is a fitness ball on top of some inverted risers. They're set in a grid so that each member has a ball in front, to the right, left, and behind. Then she passed out drumsticks. REAL drumsticks. And started the African music. IT WAS SO COOL! I had my heart rate monitor on and when we really got going I was up in the 160's easy!
Here's a youtube video of a similar class.
Man, if she does that every Friday, I'll be a convert to taking classes!
