Get Ready, Get Set: Setting realistic goals and expectations

Hey TOURmates! We can't tell you how excited we are to start TOUR. We're spending this week setting our intentions for the month to come and thought it might be nice to do a little pre-tour exercise as a community. Our entire team at POUND HQ has a TOUR Journal. In the week leading up to TOUR, we're taking notes; we're writing down what we eat, how we're feeling (emotionally, phsyically, and mentally), and we're setting out goals...

Why Pickled Asparagus will Impress at Sunday Brunch

You know we love to experiment in the kitchen and we wanted to share one of our favorite techniques: pickling! Pickled vegetables are staples in our refrigerators; Onions, hardboiled eggs, beets -- you name it, you can pickle it! Recently, we experimented with pickled asparagus and fell in love with the kick the vinegar and spice mixture adds to an already flavorful vegetable. Here's our pickled asparagus recipe plus an extra one to spice up your Sunday brunch cocktail ;) Pickled Asparagus: 1 bunch...

3 Ways To Go Green and Get Clean

Going into the wild inspires us to slough off the old (and dusty) to make room for the new. We're making small changes (tweaks!) to refresh this month. We're going green and getting CLEAN! Here's how: 1. Unplug: Do yourself a favor and embark on a digital cleanse! Do you check Instagram before your feet even touch the floor in the morning? (Guilty). And how often do you see someone walking down the street without their iPhone...

Marching Into The Wild

Welcome to March POUND Posse! It’s so hard to NOT get excited this month. Spring is around the corner and although the year is zooming by, this time of year always feels like a rebirth.

Where Are They Now? Master Pro Holly Benavente’s Rockout Results

Prior to finding POUND, I struggled to find the right workout and a fitness community that would be sustainable, enjoyable, and uplifting! Losing pounds and feeling motivated lasted for a brief time, but the biggest mental and emotional shift I had - and the reason that I've stuck with POUND for so long - is because of it's uplifting and empowering nature. I'd get so down on myself when I felt like I'd fallen off...
