What is POUND, you ask?
"Instead of listening to music, you become the music in this exhilarating full-body workout that combines cardio, conditioning, and strength training with yoga and pilates-inspired movements. Using Ripstix®, lightly weighted drumsticks engineered specifically for exercising, POUND transforms drumming into an incredibly effective way of working out. Designed for all fitness levels, POUND® provides the perfect atmosphere for letting loose, getting energized, toning up and rockin’ out! The workout is easily modifiable and the alternative vibe and welcoming philosophy appeals to men and women of all ages and abilities." (Poundfit.com)
Where is this taking place?
All classes will meet at the Old Danielsville Gym.
When are classes?
There are two free POUND classes taking place on July 2nd and July 7th. Regularly priced classes are on July 9th, 16th, 23rd, and 30th. The classes start at 5:30p, but arrive a little early to sign a waiver if it's your first time participating with the Recreation Department. The class will last about an hour.
Do I need to bring anything?
Yes! Bring a yoga mat (or similar), water, and a workout towel. Ripsticks are provided!
What about any age restrictions?
For these sessions, we're asking that you be at least 13 years old. Those under the age of 18 must have their legal parent/guardian present during class. Give us a call if you have children younger than that who are interested.
What does it cost?
Individual sessions are $10 per person, but if you sign up for four sessions at the time of registration, you'll get the fourth one free! To receive this discount, you must register for four sessions at a time. You will not receive the discount if you register for classes on two separate occasions. Payment for one session is not transferable to another session.
How many people will be in each class?
There's a maximum of 15 participants per session to ensure there's enough space to safely conduct your POUND fitness class.
Will you offer additional classes than what's listed?
We hope to, yes! The more the merrier so invite a friend to register too. Check back for additional sessions.
