Pound. Rockout. Workout.

Pound® is the world’s first cardio jam session inspired by the energizing, infectious, sweat-dripping fun of playing the drums.

The Class

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. Replacing the quintessential arm pumping of Pilates with the rapid arm movements of drumming, POUND® incorporates lightlyweighted exercise drumsticks (Ripstix®) and choreography based on a series of four positions with endless techniques, cadences and advanced variations.

Twice the weight of a standard drumstick (¼ lb each) and slightly shorter in length, Ripstix® are designed to maximize your workout and get you ripped by altering the physics of your arm movement to burn more calories.

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® hooks gym-goers, exercise novices and conditioned athletes alike by condensing all the best hand-picked cardio, strength training, Pilates and HIIT techniques into a streamlined sequence intensified by the intermittent conditioning and stability elements of drumming.

The Benefits

Rhythm, timing, coordination, speed, agility, endurance, and musicality drastically improve.

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!

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.

POUND® allows participants to see, feel and hear their body’s movements. The auditory component of striking sticks and simulated drumming is rewarding, motivating, and most of all, allows the student to adjust for symmetry, exertion and accuracy.

This teaming of sound and motion gives students another modality of feedback, making progress and improvements in coordination occur more quickly.
