School’s out, the days are longer, and it’s time to fire up the BBQ. With hot, lazy summer days and so much good food to eat, it’s understandable that you’re going to get some extra padding before school starts again. But you don’t have to keep it! Why not come to the Fulton County Medical Center this summer and join us as we get fit to the beat? Utilizing POUND: Rockout. Workout. ® Fitness Classes, we’ll be sure to get you into the best shape ever. That’s why we’ve put together this blog post, to help introduce you to what we can offer together with POUND® fitness for you this upcoming summer!
POUND® is a cardio exercise session that’s rooted in primarily drum-based music. With a catchy, infectious beat, the energetic music is sure to make you burn calories. By using Ripstix®, which are light drumsticks designed for exercising, POUND® is able to make drumming one of the most effective ways to get an amazing workout. You’re not just listening to music: you’re becoming the music through cardio, strength training, yoga, and Pilates-inspired moves. Not only is POUND® suitable for all fitness levels, it gives you the best atmosphere for working out, as well as providing customizability and an “everyone’s welcome” atmosphere. No matter how old you are, or if you’re a guy or girl, POUND® is for you!
What are the Benefits?
Using POUND®, it’s possible to burn up to 900 calories in a single hour! This gives you a slimmer body as you strengthen and use less-used muscles. You’ll improve you timing, coordination, reflexes, endurance, speed, and become more agile. Through the tried-and-true method of combining both stability and cardio, you’ll get a tighter, firmer waistline, slimmer ties, and stronger connective tissue. POUND® uses the intrinsic rhythm of drumming to help increase your focus, and studies have proven that drumming can help to relieve stress. So instead of counting reps or timing your current set, POUND® stops you from focusing on the length of the workout and makes you pay attention to the rhythm and beat, so that helps you keep on doing it.
After a 45-minute class, you’ll have reached as much as 15,000 reps, 30 interval peaks, and over 70 techniques—all without keeping count or realizing it. Combined with our Ripstix®, which add ¼ lb of extra weight to throw you off balance just enough to improve your core and stabilization system, you’ll be losing weight in no time. Plus, they’re easily transportable and made of durable plastic, so they can go with you anywhere, anytime. Best of all, all of this happens while you’re rocking out to your favorite music! How does it get any better?
