POUND® was created in 2011 by two women 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.
Led by co-creator and CEO, Kirsten Potenza, POUND® is currently taught by over 25,000 instructors in 100+ countries to hundreds of thousands of participants a week, making an active, supportive and passionate community.
In 2020, Pound fast-tracked a project that had been in the works for a while – the launch of an on-demand streaming service to allow for at-home Rockout Workouts. Enter Odeum. With the Odeum service, Pound was able to launch this service in the midst of a pandemic in record time.
“Odeum’s platform provided us the ability to launch our on-demand workouts quickly and seamlessly with full support–great product and great team!” – Alexis Love
