Air Drumming Workout: Should This Workout Come to the Bay Area?

Let’s face it–it’s hard to stick to a workout when it isn’t fun. So when I heard of this new workout that gets you fit by air drumming, I was hooked. (Who wouldn’t want to jam out to their favorite tunes and get a hardcore workout at the same time?!)

The POUND workout class, founded by two female drummers, is a cardio workout that uses mock drumsticks in a variety of exercises for strength training, yoga and pilates.

We all know how intense drumming can be. It works out all areas of your arms and core all while keeping a beat. The workout has been taking over L.A., and for good reason–it makes working out seem so much more fun.

But is it just a fad? Or would you take this if it were in the Bay Area, as well?

I’ve compiled a list of a few of my favorite “dream” drum songs–songs that are infectiously catchy but also filled with some really great drum moments. What would you drum out to?

1. “Sugar” by Maroon 5

2. “In The Air Tonight” by Phil Collins

3. “Learn To Fly” by Foo Fighters

4. “Dreams” by Beck

5. “Road To Nowhere” by Talking Heads

6. “Love Never Felt So Good” by Michael Jackson (ft. Justin Timberlake)

7. “Black Magic Woman” by Santana

8. “Glamorous Life” by Sheila E.
