POUND beats it out in Dubai
POUND kicked off to a brilliant start for the 30×30 Dubai Fitness Challenge this year by attracting many sports, fitness, and music lovers from across Dubai. Individuals enjoyed a unique music-led workout that spiced up their routine.
Early morning on October 25th, the US-based POUND hosted one of their music-inspired workouts at Kite Beach Fitness Village, and with over a 100 people participating on the warm sandy beach, beating the sand with the iconic neon green ripstixs faster than their heartbeats, it truly was a thrilling scene.
“In POUND we say it’s ‘Love at first strike’ because the moment you strike the ripstixs is the first time you fall in love with the program.” says Ezran Consul, POUND PRO instructor and founder of UAE Pound Posse Community.
The Global brand is hosting sessions all over the world, they have recently been focusing on the MENA region and its biggest cities; trainings are being held in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and Egypt – proving how much love people have for POUND from across the world.
Words fail to describe how enthralling this workout session is, but the people at POUND like to describe it as; “Channelling your inner rock star with this full body cardio-jam session inspired by the infectious, energizing, and sweat-dripping fun of playing the drums.”
Participants following the fluid choreography of the instructors (or POUND PROs as they are called) said it instils a sense of euphoria that tones your body and soothes your soul simultaneously.
“The goal of Pound is to ensure people enjoy their workouts, it’s more about changing people’s minds before we change their bodies; they enjoy their workout and also get a kick out of a difficult workout… they love it.” explained Consul, in a post-workout interview.
POUND has been stoked in reaching all these fitness enthusiasts and uncovering a growing fan base in Dubai and Abu Dhabi; the exploding frenzy of cross-fit workouts places POUND as a must-try in any active person’s fitness goals. Even if you are not a fitness enthusiast it is definitely a workout that is worth giving a shot!
