Tuesday Tweak: Soup!

Tired of grabbing unhealthy takeout on your way home from work? Too little energy to cook after a long day of caring for your kids? Sick of eating well all day and then devouring the first thing you see when you get home? Then this TWEAK is for YOU!   Today we’re tweaking your last-minute meal — the one that ends up including everything in the fridge but has the nutritional value of a Kraft single (those things don’t even burn!)   When we dream about the perfect last-minute dinner meal (or any), three boxes need to be checked off: it’s gotta be healthy, delicious, and easy enough to prep so we have a reliableread more READ MORE

POUND demos

“At the heart of every life form there is rhythm.” – Evelyn Glennie   We started this year with a bang, we’ve made a goal to #MAKENOISE — to set an attitude for 2015. There are people who inspire and drive you to MAKE NOISE and make a difference. Mary Ellen Stansberry-Hodges makes noise in everything that she does. She’s a professional drummer, teacher, mother, POUND Pro and overall inspiration. Look up MAKE NOISE in the dictionary; a photo of Mary Ellen will most definitely appear.   Mary Ellen’s fitness and health journey began many years ago. She made a promise to herself, a commitment to improve her health. After TWO insulin-dependent diabetic pregnancies,  sheread more READ MORE

POUND was named one of FITNESS MAGAZINE'S Best Workout DVDs of 2015!

As you know, we have been focused on MAKING NOISE in everything we do: at HQ, in our personal lives, and especially in our POUND classes. But the news we’re about to share with you actually left us speechless when we first heard it: our POUND ROCKOUT RESULTS SYSTEM has been named one of the Fitness Magazine’s TOP DVDs of 2015!   Fitness magazine gave their test group a sneak peek at our brand new DVD system, and they loved it!   We created the POUND ROCKOUT RESULTS SYSTEM because we were inspired by the results that students were experiencing in POUND classes all around the world. Our goal was to create a truly uniqueread more READ MORE

Want an easy, on-the-go breakfast option for the new year? Try these breakfast frittatas in a cupcake pan!

NEW YEAR. NEW KITCHEN. NEW TWEAK.   To kick-start the beginning of the year, we decided to tweak the beginning of your day: breakfast! It’s one of the most important meals of the day, but also the one that gets away. Pressing snooze one too many times equals you running out the door with either a quick unhealthy bite or nothing at all — THE WORST!   Once you get to work, there’s “no time to eat” until lunch and soon after, the hangries set in. “The Hangries” is our term at POUND HQ for that slightly irritable, snappy version of yourself that rears it’s ugly head when your tummy is begging for nutrients.

Screw resolutions. #MAKENOISE with us!

A new year is here. It’s exciting, because we feel like we can start over.   Revel in the excitement and the feeling of a new start; scrap the mistakes and hiccups of 2014, and keep the good that you learned and acquired.   In theory, that is what we all SHOULD do. It’s a healthy notion, one that we can surely maintain for at least a month, right? But what happens when February rolls around? We forget our goals and dreams that came fresh out of the oven on January 1st, and we slowly slide back into old habits. So where did that inspiration go? That energy and the fresh feeling of a new yearread more READ MORE

NEW YEARS OUTFIT OF THE DAY! :)

5, 4, 3, 2, 1… HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! (Internal dialogue:) “5, 4, 3, 2, 1… Wait a second… that’s it? I bought a new outfit for THIS? I even got a blow out! I need more champagne. Wait, where’s my phone?”   Rumor has it that the more money you spend on your New Years Eve outfit, the more anticlimactic it feels. (It’s true!) So keep your wallet in your purse and let the fun, friends, and fresh start of 2015 take center stage as you kick off of a glorious new year! Forget overdrafting your bank account for a new outfit you’ll only wear once — we guarantee that if you take a peekread more READ MORE

Although our record players have been replaced by fancy-schmancy iPods, Mp3 players and “the Spotify,” these classic holiday tunes are so timeless, they immediately evoke the feeling of the good ol’ days.

The POUND Girls' All in one holiday chicken dinner recipe!

Does the thought of puttin’ dinner in the oven make you sweat? Not because the oven is hot, but because you have no idea what to do with the dang thing? Pre-heat? Bake? Broil? Boil? WHAT!? (cue the beads of sweat. Drip, drip…)   Recently, one of our lovely POUND HQ ladies confessed her own fear of the oven to us. She mentioned that this keeps her at an oven-mitt’s distance from testin’ out new recipes and desserts — even Tweaks, treats and goodies that WE release each month. (GASP!)   It got us thinking: How many other peeps out there are missing out on all the delicious simplicity of an oven-baked meal just becauseread more READ MORE
