Dubai, UAE: Pound workout is a high energy exercise class that is gaining a lot of interest in the UAE. The class is led by an instructor who intensely moves around the room holding a ripstix. Ripstix are lightly weighted exercise drumsticks that transform drumming into a highly effective, full-body workout. This gym-free workout relies on the simple principle that “it’s not the weight you lift, but the reps you do”.
POUND workout is a combination of light resistance, simulated drumming and a great playlist, making the workout fun and effective. The ultimate goal is to create a workout that transcends the gym and isn’t a chore anymore. It’s a sustainable program that one can practice on their own, and be successful at it
In a typical POUND workout, fitness enthusiasts will go through approximately 15,000 repetitions. The Ripstix adds some lightweight but also reinforces the movement, so one can go lower into squats, etc. The most important part is to be able to make noise. It is a proven fact that it is important to hear your body because you realize the intensity at which you’re moving.
“Pound allows you to release your inner rock god with a combination of strength and drumming! Every time we instruct a class, we’re doing it with COVID-19 safety protocols on our minds, Designed for all fitness levels, Pound provides the perfect atmosphere for letting loose, getting fit, improving your health, and rocking out. Release your inner Rockstar”, says the CEO, Nitesh Seebran.
With a simple n clap of the hands to a beat one can get along in a pound class just fine. In a POUND workout, you will experience different genres of music. Each song is like a mini journey or workout.
