New Britain – Berlin YMCA

Try our new POUND® class!

The NBBY is excited to bring another fun fitness class to our members!

Pound is designed for all fitness levels and provides the perfect atmosphere for letting loose, getting energized, toning up and rocking out.  Using Ripstix®, lightly weighted drumsticks, Pound transforms drumming into an incredibly effective way of working out.

Instead of just listening to the music, you become the music in this exhilarating full-body workout that combines cardio, conditioning, and strength training with yoga and pilates-inspired movements, and forget that you are even exercising.  The workout is easily modifiable for all fitness levels.

Donna Dorbuck first discovered Pound over five years ago at a small studio that offered it just one time.  It took her a while to find another place to regularly take Pound.  In 2018 she decided to take the Pound Pro training and there’s been no stopping her since she completed her training!  Donna enjoys igniting the inner rock star in her Pound class participants.
