As a long time Yogi, I would describe POUND® as “Yoga on steroids”. I might often be heard saying something like “Sometimes getting my Zen on requires beating out all my frustration and aggression through POUND®.”
POUND® was introduced to me at a time I needed a little extra something to help me deal with the loss of my oldest son. Since then, I’ve been POUNDING my way through grief and sorrow and other difficult emotions and feeling stronger and more resilient than ever before.
I fully value, admire, and adhere to the core values of this unique workout set forth by POUND®’s creators. As described by poundfit.com:
“Channel your inner rock star with this full body cardio-jam session inspired by the infectious, energizing, and sweat-dripping fun of playing the drums! As a community, we believe that we have the ability to inspire a nation, to turn the fitness world on its head, and to truly find alternative ways to ROCK. We aspire to change minds before bodies and use beat and alternative movement to launch people to new heights of self worth, happiness and human connection. AKA, release their INNER ROCK STARS. 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.”

What would a drumming workout be without drumsticks? Designed specifically for POUND, these unique, lightly weighted exercise drumsticks have been specially designed to get you ripped — hence the name: Ripstix®!
