Cardio drumming gets Claridge residents moving

Roselyn Schmidt, Marissa Sherrill, Christina Osorio and Rose Marie started Cardio Drumming in Claridge.

In Claridge, you can jam out while you workout, thanks to new cardio drumming classes.

Drumsticks in hand, attendees of the twice-a-week class workout in Penn Township while drumming on yoga balls stabilized on a bucket.

“We’re trying to bring a healthy lifestyle to our community because we don’t see that much anymore,” said Rose Marie, co-founder of the classes.

Together with Marissa Sherrill, Roselyn Schmidt and Christina Osorlo, classes are taught Mondays at Colton Hall in Claridge and Thursdays at Level Green Elementary School.

The hour long classes are open to anyone, include children, Marie said.

Coming back from the Pocono Mountains for a business trip, Marie presented the idea to the three other women who are part of a local Herbalife Nutrition group, a global nutrition company. From there, the group self-taught routines and made up their own songs.

“It actually gets people out of their house, out of their winter depression,” Marie said.

Marie said they hope to grow the group, with about four members right now who never miss a class. In the future, they hope to establish a nutrition club in the community while growing cardio drumming.

Right now, classes run from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Attendees who need equipment pay $8 per person or $25 per family. Those who bring their own equipment pay $6 per person or $20 per family. Those interested can sign up online or email Sherrill through the Sign Up Genius website.

“We just want to be a healthier community,” Marie said. “That’s our main goal — to help people be healthy and happy.”

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
