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.
IT WORKS.POUND combines easy to follow (and not complex or embarrassing) cardio moves with strength training and drumming. This combo works the entire body, raises the heart rate to a fat-burning zone, and forces each move to be as precise as a basic beat.
Each 2-4 minute song is carefully calibrated with interval peaks and extended fat burning sequences, providing you with the best workout in the shortest span of time. After you’re done rocking out to the 45-minute POUNDtrack, you’ll have done 15,000 reps, performed over 30 extended interval peaks, and zipped through over 70 techniques without even realizing it.
LISTEN TO YOUR BODY.You’ll actually hear your body working, each move generating a sound. Think you’re not coordinated? Hearing yourself and adjusting based on the sounds you make will fix that in a snap. Want to get more out of your workout? Just POUND harder and listen to yourself get in shape. We’ve made it easy to improve your body, your coordination, and your agility based on hearing your body work with Ripstix™.
SO FUN, YOU WON’T BE ABLE TO STAY AWAY.If any fitness regimen is going to work, it has to become part of your lifestyle. POUND is an easy routine to “stick” with, since it yields fast results, it’s fun, and it lets you Rock out while you work out! The stress relief and intense workout experienced by POUND-goers keeps them coming back for more!
Jack McAlpin, a 26-year-old management consultant, confessed he regularly sneaks in the side door of his gym to snag a spot. After his first time trying POUND, “I was walking funny the next day,” he said approvingly. “The weight of the drumsticks throws off your balance, so your core is killing you at the end.” – Jack McAlpin, interviewed by The New York Times
