Amasiko rhythm sticks and dance
Amasiko, created by Charles Lubbe and inspired by a team of crazy facilitators, the Amasiko fuses cardio interval training with drumming and line dancing to provide a challenging, heart-pumping workout.
It moves fast: From start to finish, lively, heart-pumping movements and upbeat tunes keep the workout feeling fresh. There's no holding an uncomfortable pose for an extended period of time; the class is always moving, always changing, and always pushing the body to its limits. Plus, the time flies by! It moves from warmup to cooldown in just 45 minutes.
It's a full-body workout: While certain group fitness classes tend to target areas of the body, Amasiko offers a full-body workout and targets common trouble spots. A huge part of the class is performed in a multitude of low resistance positions. The constant up-and-down drumming and dancing targets your inner and outer thighs, butt, and core.
You'll blow off steam: After a long day, there are few things more exhilarating than grabbing a pair of drumsticks and being able to drum out your stress. Whether you're sitting down doing mat work or up on your feet jumping to a new track, everything seems more tolerable — and more fun! — when you're banging on the floor with a pair of Amasiko sticks drumsticks or moving to the rhythm of the beat.
