Is it often hard to motivate yourself to get to the gym? You’re not alone. Many people struggle to find motivation for working out and consistently come up with excuses for not doing so. When you work out with a POUND fitness class in Columbia, though, we’re sure you’ll feel energized and be inspired to keep coming and to be healthier.

What Is POUND?

Never heard of POUND before? Don’t worry. POUND is a group fitness class that incorporates cardio, conditioning, and strength training through yoga- and pilates-inspired movements. The workout gets even better with loud, exhilarating music that keeps you going. Each participant uses Ripstix®: drumsticks that are built specifically for exercising so you can drum along with the beat while toning your arms.

If you’re looking for a new fitness program that delivers results and will keep you coming to the gym, POUND may be a match for you.
