Michael Chow

Michael Chou is a Taiwan-based ICON living in Taichung City. After taking a POUND Master Class in November of 2016, he instantly fell in love – with the strikes of the Ripstix, the music, and the easy-to-follow movements of this full-body workout. He flew to Singapore to attend POUND Pro Training in March of 2017 where the concepts of ‘mind before body’ and ‘POUND is for every body’ really resonated with him and made him fall in love with POUND even more. 

With enthusiasm and passion, Michael’s goal is to bring confidence to his participants through POUND, helping them believe that they are amazing inside and out and are unique, just like him. Michael will lead you to find who you really are, to accept the real you, and to love yourself through power of POUND.
