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.


Pia Thiemann lives in Germany and has a three-part philosophy that she brings to every POUND training. First, she believes she must motivate people with passion and professionalism by being humble, understanding and willing to improve herself. Second, she aims to inspire people to live their best lives by living her best life. Finally, she trusts in her participants and their abilities, because ultimately every person on this planet already has what it takes to get where they want, but they often just need a helping hand in seeing that.

The Fresh Prince of Bel Air!

If you could have dinner with anyone from history, who would it be?
Michael Jordan. I know he’s still alive, but he made history! His game had a great impact on my life. Teamwork. Standing up always one more time than you fall, putting in effort if you want to achieve a goal, seeing opportunities instead of limits.  A real Icon, I’d love to hear his story.
