About the class

POUND is an intense, full-body cardio workout that allows you to channel your inner rockstar while working towards your fitness goals. A great option for those who struggle with staying motivated when it comes to working out, POUND is a new and exhilarating class offered at Fitness Nation, your local 24-hour Arlington gym. This trendy class will not only get your heart pounding and your body moving, but it will help you strengthen and sculpt infrequently used muscles. The POUND workout combines cardio, Pilates, isometric movements, plyomoterics and Isometric poses into a 60-minute class. You will burn between 400 and 900+ calories per hour, building your confidence while helping you achieve your fitness goals.

When you take Fitness Nation’s POUND class, you will use our lightly weighted drumsticks, called Ripstix, that allow you to engage in constant simulated drumming to aid in your workout. If rhythm isn’t exactly your strong suit, don’t fret! The POUND routines are simple to follow and set to calibrated music that will help you set the right pace and rhythm.

Benefits of Pound

A class that is making waves throughout the country, there are many different benefits to POUND. From its integration of different exercises, fast-pace, and focus on the oftentimes forgotten muscles, you are guaranteed to become a POUND fanatic in no time! Here is a look at some of the other benefits of this class:

  • It’s fast-moving
    From start to finish, the upbeat, heart-pumping movements and tunes found in every POUND class will make it so you’re never bored.
  • It’s a full-body workout
    While there is certainly nothing wrong with classes that focus on a specific part of the body, POUND offers a full-body workout that gets at neglected muscles and trouble spots. Because a large majority of the class is performed in squat position, the constant up-and-down is great for your core, butt, and inner and outer thighs.
  • It’s fun and exhilarating
    How many classes have you attended that you go to because you feel like you have to, instead of want to? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Thankfully, POUND is just the opposite. The class is so fun and different that you will find yourself coming back for more, week after week! From the constant drumming to the never-ending movement, you won’t believe the 60 minutes are up at the end.

What to Expect, Wear, and Bring

Since POUND is a fast-paced class, be sure and wear comfortable, non-restrictive workout clothes and good shoes. The last thing we want is for you to be uncomfortable during this class! Be sure and bring a water bottle and maybe a towel, as you are sure to break a sweat.
