WHAT IS POUND®?
POUND® is a full-body drumming workout that uniquely combines cardio, conditioning, and strength training with yoga and pilates-inspired movements using lightly weighted exercise drumsticks (Ripstix®). Created by Kirsten Potenza and Cristina Peerenboom, music enthusiasts, drummers, and fitness experts, POUND® was designed to transform drumming into an incredibly effective way of working out. POUND® is accessible to all fitness levels. The workout is easily modifiable and the alternative vibe and welcoming philosophy appeals to men and women of all ages and abilities.
WHY IT WORKS
The upper body is constantly moving and drumming, producing continual instability throughout the entire body, activating and engaging infrequently used stabilizer muscles.
- Rhythm, timing, coordination, speed, agility, endurance, and musicality drastically improve.
- Adding the core-engaging element of drumming to dynamic, full-body movements increases caloric burn, improves precision and thoroughly targets all the large and supporting muscle groups in the body.
- Burn up to 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!
