Instead of listening to music, you become the music in this exhilarating full-body workout that combines car-dio, conditioning, and strength training with yoga and pilates-inspired movements. De-signed for all fitness levels, POUND® provides the perfect atmosphere for letting loose, getting energized and , toning up. The workout is easily modifiable and the alternative vibe and welcoming philosophy appeals to men and women of all ages and abilities. 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, de-crease chronic pain, anxiety, and fatigue.
