“POUND HAS BEEN A HIT, INSPIRING CARDIO CATHARSIS—AND A SCRAMBLE FOR SPOTS—AT GYM CHAINS ACROSS THE WORLD”

– The New York Times

ABOUT POUND®

The workout combines cardio, Pilates, isometric movements and plyometrics with constant simulated drumming – all to loud, kick-ass music. An energizing, infectious, sweat-dripping workout, each strike of the Ripstix releases a primal aggression as well as a neuromuscular reward of mixing sound and movement. POUND allows you to truly become the music.

My very first POUND experience was at the training. I had no idea what the program was but I wanted to get certified in something new. My pound ICON made me fall in love at first strike. She made the class so fun that I wished the 30 minutes didn’t end. A smile never left my face and that was the moment I knew that teaching this program was definitely in my future. Till this day I love teaching Pound and that feeling will never get old.

Our story

POUND® was created in 2011 by two women who were both recreational drummers and former college athletes. They loved the energy of live music and wanted to create an environment for fitness that brought people together for the same electric, cathartic and unifying experience. They believed something was missing in the industry, and when they couldn’t find it, they created it.

Led by Founder and CEO, Kirsten Potenza, POUND® is currently taught by over 25,000 instructors in 100+ countries.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 ROCKSTARS.

Our philosophy

WE BELIEVE in the power of music and the freedom of rocking out.
WE SUPPORT unleashing aggression, discovering new talents, and awaking new senses.
WE ENCOURAGE sampling new forms of movement, uncovering new rhythms, and tapping into new ways of listening.
WE PROMOTE camaraderie, friendship and bonding.
WE BELIEVE in loving our bodies while improving them.
WE BELIEVE in handing you the permission to Rock!
