Girl crush alert! We cannot wait to introduce you to the dynamic duo behind POUND – Rockout. Workout.®, a weighted-drumstick based workout that has been taking the country by storm.  Venice, California-based creators Kirsten Potenza and Cristina Peerenboom pack a serious punch: they are fitness experts, music enthusiasts, and drummers who came together to create a revolutionary workout that deeply fuses fitness and music. Their story was born from a journey to self-realization that involved finding out what was missing for them. 

We asked them our favorite seven questions, in this Sweat on the Street Special: 

Q: How would you describe your fitness personality?

A: Fun loving, form-focused and badass.



Q: Where are we most likely to find you working out?

A: Crunch Gyms. Our classes are taught there and you can also get certified as a POUND instructor in one of our training programs.

Q: As workout aficionados, what do you always keep in your gym bags?

A: Ripstix™, Frends Headphones, Aveda tinted moisturizer, a POUND sweatshirt, Flannel and KIND bars.

Q: What is your favorite local post-burn treat?

Double Chocolate coconut ice cream from Kippy’s in Venice

Q: Tell us about your everyday mantra?

A: Everything is as it should be.

Q: What would you pinpoint as your defining fitness moment, your “BurnThis” moment?

A: The moment we finished instructing our first ever POUND Pro instructor course. It was the moment we felt deeply confident that our careers and whole lives, as a matter of fact, were about to become centered around health and happiness of others.

Q: We’re always looking for fitness tips! What do you recommend?

A: Always eat within 20 minutes of waking. And the best tip: Take POUND classes, obviously!
