Summer Burn: POUND® with Trisha Brink

August 21, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

- Free

We are excited to continue a new summer tradition of fitness programming at the Museum. Join us every week in August for a variety of fitness activities to get your blood pumping and your sweat flowing, all while having lots of fun! This year we are partnering with the YMCA of the Cedar Rapids Metropolitan Area to bring you exciting opportunities to get active, all led by experienced instructors.

This week’s activity: 

POUND®: Channel your inner rockstar with this full body cardio-jam session inspired by the infectious, energizing, and sweat-dripping fun of playing the drums!  Instead of listening to music, you become the music in this exhilarating full-body workout that combines cardio, conditioning, and strength training with yoga and pilates-inspired movements. Using Ripstix®, lightly weighted drumsticks engineered specifically for exercising, POUND® transforms drumming into an incredibly effective way of working out. Designed for all fitness levels, POUND® provides the perfect atmosphere for letting loose, getting energized, toning up and rockin’ out! The workout is easily modifiable and the alternative vibe and welcoming philosophy appeals to men and women of all ages and abilities.  You’ll burn up to 900+ calories per hour, strengthen and sculpt infrequently used muscles, and drum your way to a leaner, stronger physique – all while rocking to your favorite music!

A limited number of mats will be available for this activity. We encourage you to bring your own if you have one!
