POUND® is a fast-paced and rockin’ workout class—and it’s now at Beechmont Racquet & Fitness every Monday and Wednesday!

The POUND® creators have developed the class to be the “world’s first cardio jam session inspired by the infectious, energizing and sweat-dripping fun of playing the drums. Using Ripstix®, lightly weighted drumsticks engineered specifically for exercising, POUND® transforms drumming into an incredibly effective way of working out.” So get ready to sweat during these classes! It will blend together a mixture of cardio, strength training, pilates, and yoga movements to create an ultimate fat-burning and muscle-toning workout hour.

What are the benefitsThey’re pretty good:

“+ 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!

+ Drastically improve your rhythm, timing, coordination, speed, agility, endurance, and musicality. 

+ Cinch the waistline, slim the thighs, and strengthen connective tissue and infrastructural muscles with the combination of stability and cardio. 

+ 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, boost the immune system, lower blood pressure, decrease chronic pain, anxiety, and fatigue.”

We’re very happy to offer this exciting new class that transforms drumming into an effective and fun way of working out. The class is designed for all fitness levels, so everyone is welcome to join, regardless of age or shape. Classes will be located in the Kid’s Gym, and space is limited to 25 people per class. We have Ripstix® on a first come, first served basis, or you can purchase your own pair at shop.poundfit.com.
