Participating in physical activity within the family unit, has limitless benefits for the whole group. Studies show that individuals should aim for a minimum of 30 minutes of physical activity per day. This might seem a bit extreme, however, not all physical activity needs to be an intense workout, a lot of everyday activities can also be good opportunities to get some physical activity into your routine.
Medically, regular physical activity, has been proven to help reduce the risk of heart attack, manage weight, control cholesterol and blood pressure levels and lower your risk of type 2 diabetes and some cancers.
Emotionally, regular physical activity is proven to increase chemical levels in the brain, including higher endorphin and serotonin levels, and a reduction in stress hormone. These physical changes help to increase mood levels and improve sleep, all of which contribute to an individual's overall well-being. Regular exercise also offers increased social interaction with peers.

The recommended way of ensuring that you and your loved ones are obtaining enough regular physical activity, is by finding an activity, that is enjoyable! When an exercise is fun and engaging, it allows the participants not to 'realize' that they are getting as much exercise as they actually are, something which we at DrumFIT like to call cardio camouflage! This ensures that exercise is more sustainable in the long-run.
DrumFIT cardio-drumming routines, are the ideal way to ensure that fun is had during your workout! We love to see our participants enjoying raising their heart rates! We believe that exercise should be fun, and DrumFIT's mission is "Powering a new wave of physical literacy". DrumFIT has been running family fun fitness events for over 14 years, where smiles are guaranteed.
We believe that participating in family based physical activities, allows the parents to model healthy habits for their children, and associating fun with exercise and fitness helps children to adopt a lifelong healthy outlook towards physical activity.
Aside from instilling a healthy outlook and habits within the family unit, group physical activity also brings the unit together to bond and also results in more child-parent engagement, which can often be sidelined due to busy school and work schedules.
