[ARCHIVED] Pound Fitness Grades 3-5


Students Grades 3-5:

Do you want to MOVE, ROCK, PLAY & MAKE NOISE? Then POUND Class is for YOU!!

Instead of listening to music, you become the music in this exhilarating full-body workout that combines cardio, conditioning, and strength training. Using Ripstix®, lightly weighted drumsticks engineered specifically for exercising, POUND transforms drumming into an incredibly effective way of working out.  Numerous studies have proven the powerful brain-boosting, stress-relieving effects of drumming. The rhythm of drumming permeates the entire brain to improve focus, increase higher-level thinking and decision-making skills, boost the immune system, and decrease anxiety and fatigue.  Participants will improve rhythm, timing, coordination, speed, agility, endurance, and musicality. 

Each POUND session will be followed by a self-esteem and affirmations session.  This session is open to children in grades three through five.  Children should be dressed comfortably and in shoes for exercising (closed-toe only).
