Richmond, VA (PRWEB) June 30, 2014
CO2Fit announces it will now be offering a new group fitness program, POUND™ Rockout Workout, in various locations in Richmond. With the use of light-weighted exercise drumsticks, Ripstix™, the 45-minute group class combines simulated drumming with cardio, strength training, and Pilates to achieve a full-body workout.
“POUND™ is a great effective program that can appeal to people at every fitness level. Similar to the popular Zumba classes, in POUND™, you can get fit while feeling like you are at a party. But you don't even have to be a good dancer, you just need to POUND the Ripstix™ while rocking out to great music," said Seo Kelleher, owner of CO2Fit.
POUND™ utilizes bright green weighted exercise drumsticks known as RipStix™. The use of RipStix™ allows participants to burn between 500-900 calories per class, performing over 15,000 reps per session. As the majority of the class routine includes constant movement, engaging smaller muscle groups in the core, legs, and butt, participants can create long, lean muscles that support the body for safe movements during other forms of exercise.
"Having fun is one of the most important factors in getting and staying fit, and POUND™ is definitely one of the most fun you will have in 45 minutes. Many options are provided during the class to help you feel successful from your very first class," said Kelleher.
CO2Fit plans to offer POUND™ classes in August at their current partner locations, including Midlothian Athletic Club, Tactical Martial Arts Academy, Body by T Fitness, and most recently, East-West Wing Chun in the Fan. July marks the two-year anniversary for CO2Fit, and to celebrate it, Kelleher plans to offer several free community classes around RVA area. "As one of the firsts in RVA to bring POUND™, I plan to do my best spreading the fun and benefit of the program in the RVA community," said Kelleher. Check their website and follow them on Facebook for more information and schedule, or contact them directly.
