More about POUND

Kirsten Potenza is CEO + Founder of POUND, a full-body cardio jam session, combining light resistance with constant simulated drumming. Potenza designed POUND® to be something that connected people directly with the beat, using music as an escape to empower and motivate.

POUND® is a full-body cardio jam session, combining light resistance with constant simulated drumming. The workout fuses cardio, Pilates, isometric movements, plyometrics and isometric poses; replacing the quintessential arm pumping of Pilates with the rapid arm movements of drumming,

POUND® incorporates lightly-weighted exercise drumsticks (Ripstix®) and choreography based on a series of four positions with endless techniques, cadences and advanced variations. Twice the weight of a standard drumstick (¼ lb each) and slightly shorter in length, Ripstix® are designed to maximize your workout and get you ripped by altering the physics of your arm movement to burn more calories.

STOMP is explosive, provocative, sophisticated, utterly unique and appeals to audiences of all ages. The eight-member troupe uses everything but conventional percussion instruments – matchboxes, wooden poles, brooms, garbage cans, Zippo lighters, hubcaps – to fill the stage with magnificent rhythms. The return of the percussive hit also brings some new surprises, with some sections of the show now updated and restructured, utilizing props like tractor tire inner tubes and paint cans. As USA Today says, “STOMP finds beautiful noises in the strangest places.” STOMP. See what all the noise is about.
