POUND® Fitness Classes

Get your calorie-burning fix at the Harrisburg Area YMCA with POUND®! Using Ripstix®, lightly weighted drumsticks engineered specifically for exercising, POUND® transforms drumming into an incredibly effective way of working out.

Instead of listening to music, you become the music in this exhilarating full-body workout. It combines cardio, conditioning, and strength training with yoga and Pilates-inspired movements. During the class, participants utilize the Ripstix® to drum out to the music. As a result, you can burn calories, stretch muscles, and increase cardio. The workout strategically distracts you from the high-intensity exercises by connecting you with the rhythm and beat of the music. You will walk away energized and renewed after this fun, rhythmic class!

POUND® is designed for all fitness levels. The class provides the perfect atmosphere for letting loose, energizing, toning up, and rockin’ out! The workout is easily modifiable; the alternative vibe and welcoming philosophy appeal to men and women of all ages and abilities. Our fitness instructors will make you feel comfortable and secure throughout the class, so you can feel confident in your ability to complete every exercise.

If dancing isn’t your thing, don’t worry! You can enjoy working out to the beat of the drums; POUND® class is perfect for you! Visit your local YMCA schedules page to find out if a branch near you offers this class.
