Balanced Eats: Easy Snacks

Snacks can add up! Nibble on these delicious Chili-Lime Roasted Chickpeas and Kale Chips!Every day at the office, there’s a brutal attack. A snack attack. Our tummies start rumbling right around 3:30pm and our minds are made up: we need a snack and we need one NOW! Some of our girls cry out for chips and salsa, others beg for chocolate and sugary delicacies. Some even ask for Sauvignon Blanc, but that is a different can of worms.

It’s true — finding the perfect, convenient, fulfilling snack can be really tough. It gets even trickier when it comes to finding snacks that are both delicious and nutritious, two things that are equally important to us. We’d never have you snack on something gross, just because it’s healthy. We dig the BALANCE between healthy, wholesome and happy when it comes to our food choices.

Here’s the thing about snacking: it can easily get out of hand and throw you off BALANCE, especially if you’re distracted at work, watching TV, or taking care of your kids. And unfortunately, a little snack here and a little nibble there of the wrong things – like potato chips, trail mixes, crackers, or cookies – can add up quickly. (more…)

The POUND Effect: Nelly and Kristi

POUNDing together is betta! Sometimes we don’t just “get by with a little help from our friends” but we are propelled forward. There are so many things that are better in twos: Ben and Jerry, Bert and Ernie, Thelma and Louise, Lucy and Ethel — the list goes on and on. When it comes to working out, the biggest challenge for so many people is motivation. Often, hitting the snooze button sounds a lot more attractive than getting yourself up and out of the house early enough to sweat then hustle to shower and get to work on time. BUT when someone is holding you accountable and is your “teammate”, it quickly becomes a little easier. In our minds, accountability is one form of motivation.

Let’s be real, working out is just more fun with a friend. It becomes less about the reps you’re doing or the number of minutes on the elliptical and more about being a partner-in-crime and working towards a common goal. That is something we love about you, #POUNDPosse – even though you might be miles apart, you connect with each other on such a special level because you’re all using POUND to reach your individual goals, together.

A before and after picture posted on Facebook by our youngest POUND Pro caught our eyes a couple months ago and sparked our intrigue. North Carolina POUND Pro Nelly Zavala posted a before and after picture of her and her best friend, Kristi Kazmierczak. They are a great example of working together and holding each other accountable to reach goals and even surpass them. (more…)

Sweat Style: Kirsten’s Onzie Sports Bra

Kirsten's favorite new fitness item is her Onzie Sports Bra!

Ladies, do you ever feel like when it comes to bras you can’t have your cake and eat it too? I’ve found that sports bras are either comfortable and supportive or super cute but leave me feeling like “I will probably fall out of this halfway through class and give a new meaning to the T & A track”. Not on my watch bra, not on my watch.

For years I’ve leaned more towards comfort and support options — but then all of a sudden our stylist on set of POUND Rockout Results hands me an Onzie Bra and says, “Just try it on!” I fell in love. Finally – comfort, support and it’s super cute! I win!

And the cherry on top? You can find them ONLINE or at almost any URBAN OUTFITTERS Without Walls locations. I highly recommend investing in a few of these. Your lovely lady lumps will thank me later. :) (more…)

Post-POUND Stretches

Try out these Post POUND stretches to relieve that crazy soreness and keep your muscles healthy!

Whether you’re a POUND Pro, you’re part of the POUND Posse, or you just like to #MAKENOISE at home with ROCKOUT RESULTS, you’re probably in need of a good stretch. And, if you’re rockin’ hard in POUND class (which we know you are), you better believe your muscles need a little extra lovin’. Not only will you lessen the extent of your soreness (wahoo!), you will keep your body safe, happy, and ready to rock.

WHOA. STRETCHING DOES WHAT?!

Stretching does to your muscles what your workout does for your heart. It assists in maintaining their health as it helps to relax, lengthen, and restore. We know it’s hard to motivate yourself to sit in one spot after an exhilarating, active workout — trust us! But it’s essential and you will reap all the benefits of all the hard work you put in during your sweaty POUND class! (more…)

Sweat Style: Cristina’s Adidas Sambas

Cristina's favorite new fitness item is her custom Adidas Sambas! If my personality could be summed up in a shoe, this would be it. Sporty, up-for-anything, versatile and slightly peculiar. They say dogs look like their owners? Well, these shoes kinda remind me of their owner, too.

Even when I was younger, I loved my Adidas Sambas. I felt like these kicks were my secret weapon on the soccer field – I have flashbacks of sprinting towards the goal, my feet speedy blurs of black and white leather. My trusty Sambas were magical, not because they looked cool but because they helped me run faster, kick harder, and explore further. They were also quite stinky, if I recall correctly. You know the part I mentioned about shoes reflecting their owners’ personality? Make your own assumptions ;) (more…)

Valentine’s Day: POUND-ified Sweetheart Cookies

Make Valentine's Day SASSY with this POUND-ified Sweetheart Cookies!Valentine’s Day: the mid-February holiday that keeps Hallmark and Hershey’s in business (but never failing to remind you just how lucky you are to love and be loved by your partner in crime).

Galentine’s Day: the mid-February holiday that keeps Dreyer’s and Netflix in business (and turns into the best night with your best friends, hating your exes and laughing til your abs get sore).

No matter what holiday you celebrate (or don’t celebrate!), why not make this weekend a little sweeter? We whipped up a treat that’ll give you a reason to want to get festive with Cupid! Our POUND-ified Sweetheart Cookies are super simple: take your typical tweaked sugar cookie and pipe on some POUND-inspired phrases. We were obviously inspired by those Sweetheart candies that you’d get in Valentine’s from your classmates in elementary school. So, we took the iconic Sweetheart phrases like “Be Mine,” “Kiss Me” and “Sexy,” but POUND-ified them — making them a little extra feisty, a little pun-ny, and way more fun! Think simple, sassy and SWEET!

Whipping up these cookies for your cutie is incredibly simple, and the best part is that you get to be creative and decorate them yourself! Since Valentine’s Day is all about love, you can even wrangle up your loved ones and decorate a bunch of cookies together! Come up with your favorite POUND Puns (and find ours below!). We tested out drawing a pair of Ripstix and some hearts — both of which were not quite as successful… but, we just used that as an excuse to eat all of the messups ;) #win (more…)
