POUND … Instead of listening to music, you become the music in this exhilarating full-body workout that combines cardio, conditioning, and strength training with drumming , dance & pilates-inspired movements. Using Ripstix, lightly weighted drumsticks engineered specifically for exercising, POUND transforms drumming into an incredibly effective way of working out.
Designed for all fitness levels, POUND provides the perfect atmosphere for letting loose, getting energized, toning up and rockin’ out! The workout is easily modifiable and the alternative vibe and welcoming philosophy appeals to men and women of all ages and abilities
Pound fitness is a combination cardio and weight training exercise approach that includes some of the rhythmic techniques used in Pilates. A full-body workout that usually lasts 45 minutes, Pound includes exercises that involve alternate squatting and standing to strengthen the inner and outer thighs, buttocks, core muscles, and back muscles. Many of the positions used in Pound are ideal for helping maintain and improve balance.
Colourful, light-weight drumsticks called Ripstix add an element of fun to Pound classes, while they help exercisers count out the length of time they hold certain positions. Although they are light- weight, the Ripstix also help tone forearms, upper arms, chest, and shoulders.
The combination of light resistance, simulated drumming and a great playlist makes the POUND workout fun and effective
You’ll drastically improve your rhythm, timing, coordination, speed, agility, endurance, and musicality as well as toning the whole body and improving your overall fitness as well as feeling like a rock star.
