OUR STORY

Rhythm is universal; we all speak it, we all feel it, therefor we can all access it. Using an African style of building, we use Japanese styled drums to foster an American styled workout that will leave you feeling fulfilled on a deeper level than any workout you've ever experienced.

The History behind RhythmetriX 
 

RhythmetriX is the product of a lifetime of experience that culminated with an adventure for the ages through Australia. 

Max Young, the founder of RhythmetriX, was traveling the world following a series of jobs in business and politics. Always interested in fitness and wellness, as well as having played the drums since the age of 10, Max needed a break to find his place in this crazy world we live in.

After touring California, Utah, and Hawaii, he landed in a one-of-a-kind gem called the Rhythm Hut, located in Australia's Central Coast -- just an hour north of Sydney -- and it was here that Max's mind was turned upside.

The Rhythm Hut was a non-profit music school that doubled as a live-music venue and workshop space. With little funding and lots of amazing people, the community absorbed the help of volunteers to thrive into a rhythmic community hub. It was here Max met Rendra Freestone, the founder of the Hut, and took every class Ren taught. In no time, Max was teaching djembe and helping with the marketing and business development end of things.

After the next year came to a close, the evolving nature of the Hut helped show Max what concepts stuck with which people, and how he might add his own unique twist on to something so special. With the guidance of rhythmic guru Ren, Max built his own set of drums -- Japanese Taiko drums built in an African djembe-style -- and began his own rhythmic journey in the northern hemisphere.

With a background in behavioral neuroscience, a passion for teaching, and a strong desire to Instill the communal buzz drum circles have fostered for thousands of years, Max created RhythmteriX to help the fast paced world we live in slow down, reconnect, and get back in touch with what makes us all human: rhythm, mindfulness, and movement. 


But wait! There's more! Not long after launching, Max got a hold of a friend and long-time professional drum teacher Kirk Kubicek. With over a decade of experience teaching kids and adults all things drums, Kirk needed little convincing and joined onto the team to immediately contribute with his vast knowledge of drumming and exceptionally pleasant personality to work with.
