Instructor, Dionne Scott, certified Pound Pro Instructor
Join in on the cardio-toning class that is sweeping the nation! POUND is a full-body cardio jam session, combining light resistance with constant simulated drumming. The workout fuses cardio, Pilates, isometric movements, plyometrics and Isometric poses into a 45-minute series. Burn between 400 and 900+ calories per hour, strengthen and sculpt infrequently used muscles, and drum your way to a leaner, slimmer physique – all while rocking out to your favorite music! POUND combines easy to follow (and not complex or embarrassing) cardio moves with strength training and drumming. This combo works the entire body, raises the heart rate to a fat-burning zone, and forces each move to be as precise as a basic beat. It works because POUND strategically distracts you from the high intensity and duration of your workout, and shifts the focus to rhythm and volume, which is far less intimidating. Try it and you’ll soon be addicted. Check it out on You Tube to see what it’s like- search Pound Fitness.
