… OK that’s enough…

My mother and father (I consider them a unit! A whole!). I am truly blessed to have such inspirational, supportive parents. Even through all the nasty storms and bumpy roads, they have prevailed and will always be my heroes. Doug and Terran, thank you! (Where are the tissues?)

Chicken tamales with honey drizzled on top. My favorite!

Well, besides my awesome POUND apparel, probably my tattoos. I can’t think of any other accessory or statement piece I wear that better represents me! Even when I workout!

Boutique! I love the warm atmosphere in boutiques. The smell of unique candles welcoming you in… I could wonder around boutiques for hours!! Knick knacks for days!

Getting to meet new people! Yes, traveling is so much fun (a close second) and teaching new instructors POUND (my fitness soulmate) is surreal — but simply meeting new people and being able to spend the day getting to know them is such a high for me.

completes me. They had me at hello. To me, you’re perfect. Nobody puts the POUND Community in a corner! Cue dance music… I’ll lift every single one of you up in the air!! That’s love!

  1. Paydin was my pound master trainer in Austin TX and she was amazing! She’s not only inspiring and fun but she represents and role models the Pound brand perfectly. Her positivity and excitement (and love of music) was contagious! She helped us all channel our inner rocker self, giving us permission to have fun with the workout & esencially fall in love with the program…
    PAYDIN is a huge reason for it’s tremendous success at all the Golds gyms here in town!!
    I Paydin!

  2. I love the POUND workout. I have the two DVD’s with the 30min workouts. I just started because my cholesterol is high and my doctor wants me to watch my diet and workout 30 min a day. I was asked how many calories are burnt for this workout. Was hoping your could help me with the answer
