Pound it Out or Hoop it Up

Like most Boca moms, I LOVE my accessories. So, I consider it a major bonus if my workout class includes a cool prop to use…to distract me from the inevitable sweating and heavy breathing during my (much needed) exercise session.

My two favorite classes as of late are held multiple times per week at Organic Movements Dance Studio (2400 NW Boca Raton Blvd. // 561/395-6111).

POUND: Rockout. Workout. ™

Pound out all of your mommy stress at this full-body cardio jam session, which combines light resistance with continuous simulated drumming using lightly weighted drumsticks called Ripstix. The POUND workout fuses cardio, Pilaties, isometric movements, plyometrics and isometrics poses into a 45-minute series. You can feel yourself buring major calories while strengthening and sculpting your muscles.

The best part? You get to drum your way to a leaner, slimmer physique, all while rocking out to your favorite music. It’s so much fun, especially on Friday nights at “Club POUND” when the studio breaks out its colors party strobe lights. It’s a great way to end a long week.

FXP® Fitness Hula Hoop

Hoop it up during this fitness class by taking advantage of a specially designed FXP Hula Hoop! You’ll swivel your hips and strengthen your arms, legs and core muscles by using the hoop’s built-in resistance. FXP® Fitness wanted to design a pain-free path to getting in shape and this class does that and more, offering a fun hula hoop routine designed for all fitness levels, even beginners. The music is great too.

I am the least talented person alive when it comes to “hula hooping,” but the weighted, flexible hoop in this class changed the game for me. It’s so simple, even kids can partake! And instructor, Connie Mullen, is top notch.
