A POUND ICON is a master trainer, as well as an ambassador of our brand, our beliefs, and our mission. They travel the world as an extension of POUND to elevate our united beat, one POUND Pro at a time. They are the educators, the rebels, the humble and electric. With different life and career experiences, personalities and uniqueness, they are the true representation of our BRAND. Let them inspire you, let them MOVE you.


After spending most of her life dancing around in some capacity or another, Jess McKee decided to make a career out of it and share the joy she gets out of movement and exercise with others. Jess felt a connection with POUND the first time she took a class. She realized it fused together so many aspects of what she loved and she wanted to learn to deliver into one group exercise experience. Jess is passionate about helping others realize their health and fitness potential and believes that goals are important – but so is enjoying the journey!
