Where did POUND come from?
POUND® was created in 2011 by two women, Kirsten Potenza and Cristina Peerenboom, who were both recreational drummers and former college athletes. They relied heavily on stability-based exercises like pilates to keep their bodies aligned,
symmetrical and lean, but were bored with routine and longed to reignite
the fun in exercise. It wasn’t until they were forced to drum without a stool
and squat over the drum kit that they realized drumming and exercise
could be one and the same.
