The Class: Mind x Body x Inner Rockstar
MAKING FITNESS FUN!
Our youth-oriented program fuses movement and music to improve focus, coordination, physical fitness and teamwork skills for school-aged children (i.e. “Rockstars in Training”) ages 6-12. A mobile program that can come to life anywhere, instructors use Ripstix®–POUND’s lightly weighted exercise drumsticks–to learn alternative ways to explore movement.
The power of Generation POUND encompasses more than just physical fitness. Combining kid-friendly choreography and group activities, it promotes social and emotional well-being by fostering relationships, building self-esteem and self-awareness, and inspiring the next generation of happy, healthy kids.®

Inspired by the three pillars of POUND–mind, body, inner rockstar– Generation POUND’s one-day, 9-hour training provides POUND Pros the foundational education and skills needed to teach this exciting new program and excel as an instructor, mentor and role model for the next generation
