Correction: Organic Movements

Bang the Drum

Our apologies for including an incorrect phone number in the November issue; here’s the correct contact for a fitness craze that has Boca residents keeping a frenzied beat.

The Pound Rockout classes taught at Organic Movements in Boca (2400 N.W. Boca Raton Blvd., Suite 12, 561/395-6111) may not be the fitness version of the movie “Whiplash.” But the popular full-body workouts that combine light resistance training and simulated drumming are guaranteed to have you rushing and dragging.

For the better part of 45 minutes, participants maintain an up-tempo rhythm—and constant upper-body work—using a pair of “Ripstix.” The fusion of cardio, Pilates, isometric movements, plyometrics and constant drumming burns several hundred calories per class.

“In one Pound class, you will complete 15,000 reps, perform more than 30 extended aerobic interval peaks and perform some 70 different techniques without even realizing it,” says Connie Mullen, who is certified in Pound and teaches at Organic Movements.

Single classes are only $15. Student discounts, as well as reduced rates for purchasing multiple classes, are available. For more about Organic Movements, go to organicmovements.com; for more about Pound, go to poundfit.com.
