“POUND Is an Epic way to get a good, effective full body workout and have a great time doing it! If you enjoy music, movement and Rhythm try this out!” says Pete Ditmon.
Shylah Hernandez, owner of Poundfit, says, “POUND is a cardio jam session inspired by infectious, energizing and sweat-dripping fun of playing the drums. You become the music in a full body workout that combines yoga, Pilates, cardio, conditioning and strength training with ripstix (lightly weighted drumsticks). It’s for all fitness levels! POUND lets you cut loose, get an energy boost, improve your health and rock out!” She had her launch party the end of May. But before that…
…Almost 7 years ago, Shylah was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. The first two things she was told was her energy level may drop and it can be hard to lose weight. “I had a 6-month-old at the time and there was no way I could let this slow me down. I began exercising on a regular basis and posting on Facebook for accountability. Soon people were messaging me to motivate and help them. I was floored!” Shylah explained.
Because she enjoys motivating and encouraging others, she decided she would love to professionally workout with others. She wanted something that anyone can do. Then POUND appeared in an ad. “I went to one class and I was hooked!”
Too many people are not comfortable going to the gym and are afraid people are judging them. Shylah decided to make this a no drama, judgment free zone and when you leave, you feel like you can rock your day!
The greatest thing about Pound is that it’s for everyBody, young and older. Classes take place at En Face Studios, thanks to the kindness of Joanne. Her husband is an amazing artist, so he designed the logo, business and punch cards. Her amazing fitness rebels have helped by spreading the word and inviting their friends! It’s a team effort for the business and the workout and making healthy goals.
Shylah is married and has two beautiful kids that she homeschools. She’s a trained opera singer and her husband thinks she should be an MMA fighter.
POUND is for everyBody! It’s for women and men of all fitness levels! We have fun, we sweat, we rock, and we make noise! Come try out a class and become addicted to fun, rockin exercise like we are!
“I can’t say this enough, but I love that everyBody can do this! I’ve had people ask if overweight people do this? Yes! They ask, I haven’t worked out in years, can I do this? Yes! You know your body and I show you modifications for beginners to advanced. I have you covered!” Shylah says. “When everybody is sync, the sound we create is Powerful! We are one! We make noise! The first time it happened, it gave me chills!”
Your first class is $5 when you use the signup link on the website to register for class. That guarantees you a spot in class. Shylah hopes to rock n glow with you soon!
