POUND® was created in 2011 by two women who were both recreational drummers and former college athletes. They relied heavily on stability-based exercises like pilates to keep their bodies lean, but were bored with routine and longed to reignite the fun in exercise. It wasn’t until they were forced to drum without a stool and squat over the drum kit that they realized drumming and exercise could be one and the same.
Numerous studies have proven the powerful brain-boosting, stress-relieving effects of drumming. The rhythm of drumming permeates the entire brain to improve focus, increase higher-level thinking and decision-making skills, boost the immune system, lower blood pressure, decrease chronic pain, anxiety, and fatigue.
You’ll drastically improve your rhythm, timing, coordination, speed, agility,endurance, and musicality
The Jungle Body
The Jungle Body® was founded in 2010 identifying a gap in the Group Fitness Industry for classes that were more simplistic, results-driven and "hybrid" in nature.
The Jungle Body® training involves a series of low to high intensity exercise workouts interspersed with rest or relief periods. The high intensity periods during Boxing, Hip Hop, Plyo etc are typically at or close to anaerobic exercise (movement that is so intense lactate forms), while the recovery period during the 20 second break down causes the heart rate to drop. In comparison to a dance workout that has no breaks, varying the intensity of effort exercises the heart muscle, providing a cardiovascular workout, improving aerobic capacity and permitting the person to exercise for longer and/or more intense levels.
The result is a powerful fat burning experience that shapes the physique and floods the body with endorphins.
