Hello Kaiti,

I have never heard of cardio drumming before.   So if the sports and recreation division had cardio drumming presentations at national convention this year, then it looks as though I totally missed out on them. However, if the sports and recreation division did indeed have cardio drumming presentations at national convention, I would imagine you might receive more useful feedback regarding cardio drumming by contacting the sports and recreation division. I believe the sports and recreation division has an email list, and I think this would be a great place to ask your questions about cardio drumming. It sounds like a really fun and interesting way to keep active and fit. I hope you can find a way to do it.

Warm regards,

Subject: [nabs-l] Cardio Drumming

Hi all,

This year I'm going to focus on really bettering myself.  I'm a part time student, am in the process of applying for part time work, and am really hoping to take advantage of the little extra free time I have to focus on self care.

Last year I found that spin and yoga classes were pretty good at giving me something else away from music to do, since I do that all day long.  However, now that I've done the classes and didn't see much change in the fitness routines throughout the semester I'm thinking I could just as easily spin and do the yoga routine on my own when I want.  I have recently heard of cardio drumming and think it could be a fun way to combine working out with music.  I found a studio near campus that offers the classes, and so long as they're not out of my budget by too much I'll probably go for it.  I'm sure my percussion teacher for the semester will approve.  :)

I noticed that the sports and rec division had cardio drumming presentations at convention this summer.  I'd be curious to hear what those of you who tried it thought of the exercise just so I know what to expect.  I read online that it is highly adaptable and modifications make it easy for even older people and those with disabilities to do, but as that was on the studio web page I'm hoping for some less biased views.  I hope that it will be fun and so long as the instructor is willing to work with me as needed, I think it could be interesting.
