A couple of months ago, I noticed one of the fitness peeps I follow (I follow a lot) mentioned she was going for Pound certification. It peeked my interest. Pound? What is Pound? So I had to check around to learn more. And I found this video:
I am still determined to test out this Pound class. According to the website, “Co-founders and former drummers Cristina Peerenboom and Kirsten Potenza combined their passions for music and fitness to create Pound.” It seems like 45-minutes of dancing and drumming yourself into a hot, fit body. If I cannot make it in-person, then I might have to break and try to test it out online.
In the meantime, I have been dying to get back into kickboxing. It is the one workout type I never tire of. I am not talking about turbo-kickboxing (TKB), but straight-up kickboxing. While I love TKB, it usually cuts into two-hours of my day plus clean-up. It also does not give me the contact kickboxing gives me with the punching bags, etc. And most importantly, it does not give me the super cool 9Round gloves (image left) I fully intend to covet.
Lo and behold, I get into a conversation with a few other Moms. One Mom mentions 9Round is opening up near us in less than a month. Are you serious? 30-minutes of kickboxing, a total body workout that gets you in and gets you fit. What more could a girl want? Instantly, I reach out to the gym to get ‘on the list’. I want to know when this place will open. What is my motivation?
- No class times. Just show up
- 30-minutes of going hard and then going home
- Did I mention the cute gloves?
- They are cropping up everyone, so I can visit a gym on-the-go
Receiving such a quick response from a gym rep was inspiring. Lest I forget, let me show you this video to give you a glimpse of 9Round.
I’ve also been wanting to throw Pure Barre and Reformers Pilates into the mix, but where is a girl to get all of this time? I’ll save those two for another time.
