Exercise Videos Cool Enough for Rock Stars
The Pound series ain't your mama's home-workout routine. This online version of a popular fitness class at Crunch gyms involves constant simulated drumming with lightly weighted drumsticks. Each 45-minute jam session combines cardio, Pilates, isometric movements and plyometrics. This concept was developed by two certified group-fitness instructors who also happen to be recreational percussionists, and they swear Pound torches fat and sculpts drummer-chick arms (we can attest to the fact that all that pounding made our biceps burn—in an awesome way). For $14.95, you get a pair of Ripstix and a month's access to online classes (after that, it’s $9.99 per month). You also get the freedom to rock out like a Muppet in your living room without feeling self-conscious.
