I had to admit that I was hooked from the first time I attended the Pound class. I’m a huge fan of music and I always wanted to learn how to play drums.
I guess this is one of the reasons why I belonged to the Pound class.
The POUND workout fuses cardio interval training with drumming to provide a challenging, heart-pumping workout.
You definitely need to try this class given by the best instructor, Rita Mitri, if you are someone who thrives off the group fitness environment or needs loud music to stay motivated. In another word, finding alternative ways to ROCK!
POUND® was created in 2011 by two women who were both recreational drummers and former college athletes. They relied heavily on stability-based exercises like Pilates to keep their bodies aligned, symmetrical and lean, but were bored with routine and longed to reignite the fun in exercise. It wasn’t until they were forced to drum without a stool and squat over the drum kit that they realized drumming and exercise could be one and the same.
WE BELIEVE in the power of music and the freedom of rocking out.
“Numerous studies have proven the powerful brain-boosting, stress-relieving effects of drumming. The rhythm of drumming permeates the entire brain to improve focus,
increase higher-level thinking and decision-making skills, and boost the immune system.” Poundfit
Pound is a full body workout, and targets common trouble spots: The constant up-and-down drumming targets your inner and outer thighs, butt, and core.
Drumsticks aren't just for show they're perfectly designed to maximize your arm workout.
This class is always moving, always changing, and always pushing the body to its limits: From start to finish, lively, heart-pumping movements and upbeat tunes keep the workout feeling fresh.
