Drum Up Your Fitness Routine With DrumCore™


The Jewish Week visited the 92nd Street Y May Center to check out a hot, new fitness class, DrumCore™ – and it was love at first sight, of drumsticks and stability balls:

Lesley Younge, a math teacher at the Dalton School, and another DrumCore enthusiast, says that the class provides a much-needed release after a stressful day. “You can pound out all of the day’s frustrations,” says Younge, who also enjoys the “interesting patterns” that Sharp introduces, and says that “you really feel your heart rate go up.”

Developed by Sharp, DrumCore draws from a fitness phenomenon called Drums Alive, which, while still unusual in New York City, has been reverberating around the world over the last decade or so. Sharp modeled his class after Drums Alive, but added a series of core-building exercises on the ball, which follow the drumming component of his classes. “It’s more of a work-out than people would imagine,” says Sharp, who first learned about Drums Alive at a fitness conference in 2005.
