Pound

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 700 calories per hour, strengthen and sculpt infrequently used muscle, 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.


I’ve never enjoyed sports or going to the gym, and finally I’ve found a workout I can plan for my week that motivates me to move! All those slow 90-minute classes have always lost my interest and at a short 45 minutes, POUND is an intensive, engaging, and fun class for exercise-phobics like myself. Not to mention the satisfying results – after 6 weeks of twice-a-week sessions, I could literally see my thighs and abs tightening up. With one year of Pounding under my belt, no other form of exercise has had me coming back week after week for this long!
