If you haven’t heard of it yet, a new workout is sweeping the nation. POUND: Rockout. Workout. is absolutely the most fun you will ever have all while killing hundreds of calories. I took a POUND class a couple months ago, and was hooked immediately. Even after just one 30 minute class I was sore for three days. The kind of sore I have only experienced after hours of “leg day” at the gym. Two more live classes later, I couldn’t get enough and ordered the full kit and have been doing it almost daily ever since. I am totally, completely, 100% in love.
POUND is a full-body cardio jam session, combining light resistance with constant simulated drumming. The workout fuses cardio, Pilates, isometric movements, plyometrics and Isometric poses into a 45-minute series. Burn between 400 and 900+ calories per hour, strengthen and sculpt infrequently used muscles, and drum your way to a leaner, slimmer physique – all while rocking out to your favorite music! Through continual upper body motion using our lightly weighted drumsticks, called Ripstix™, you’ll turn into a calorie-torching drummer, POUNDing off pounds as each song flies by. Rock, rap, dubstep, pop and old school music fuse to create the POUNDtrack series, which is hand-selected by music enthusiasts, drummers and POUND founders Kirsten Potenza and Cristina Peerenboom.
I have honestly never had so much fun working out. Zumba has been my love for the last two years, but POUND brings in a whole ‘nother element and brings out my inner rocker chick. I get those RipStix in my hand and suddenly I am the lead drummer in my own rock band. Check it out:
I love POUND so much that I signed up to become an instructor in April. I am also a certified Zumba Instructor (ZIN) but I never had any intentions of actually teaching a Zumba class – I just loved it and wanted to learn more. However with POUND I have already begun talking to my local gym about starting classes. I am doing POUND every day anyway at home – why not do it every day at the gym too!?
If there is a POUND class near you, I highly recommend you going and checking it out. The atmosphere is amazing – everyone is so nice and supportive – true rockstars. If there isn’t, check out the at home kit which will give you that same incredible workout right in your living room. The Jam Session is my favorite – it is just exactly what it sounds like – a total jam session. I sweat, I laugh, and I have an absolute blast. And if it turns out that you love it as much as I do, consider being an instructor at one of their certification trainings around the country.
I am so super excited about this I can’t even put it in to words. Finally I think I have found the workout just for me. POUND paired with Whole30 is my recipe for success in getting the banging, healthy body I deserve – all while enjoying every rockin minute of it. Check it all out at www.PoundFit.com
