Our Fit4Drums trainers in Germany and the world

Fit4Drums is a new combination of drumming, music, exercise and fitness training. So far there was no concept, which was more widespread in this combination. The success of Fit4Drums lies on the one hand in the new drum design, in the simplicity and efficiency of the overall concept, and above all on the many trainers who have been trained over the years. About 300 fitness trainers took part in the training over the past 5 years. The educator and teacher training courses were attended by more than 700 participants.

On this team page we would like to highlight the coaches who have been practicing Fit4Drums for years. They offer the format not only in the fitness and sports area. They also work as independent drum teachers, social workers, anti-aggression trainers, music teachers at music schools, recreational educators as well as animators and hosts in hotel complexes and on the cruise ships of the AIDAFlotte.

We are looking forward to an exchange between the trainers and have set up a closed Facebook group for our licensed trainers which you can join after taking part in a license training.
