Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

A Blog From Our #TwoWeekTweak Winner: Whitney   Having studied Nutrition and Dietetics, I could not wait to start with the #TwoWeekTweak challenge! I began my fitness journey in college, teaching multiple class formats at my school’s Recreation Center. I have earned several certifications through these past couple of years, however I think it is safe to say POUND is my new favorite! I got a post card in the mail about a training coming to my area, and decided on a last minute whim to go! Boy am I glad I did! POUND is on a whole other level! The music, the moves, the intense workout… 20 minutes into the training, I fell inread more READ MORE

POUND Launches in Gymbox Gyms in LONDON! Check out our trip here!

Our trip to London was a looooong time comin’. It all started in Australia, of all places, last Thanksgiving during our second Sydney training. There was a magical lil lady who blew our mind during our 8 hour curriculum, and unlike her fellow PROs, she called London home, not Australia. It was a fluke that she even got trained with us, but dang, was it a happy accident. This particular happy accident’s name was Michelle Peak, one of the most badass POUNDers we’ve seen, and programming manager at Gymbox gyms in London. She helped us bring POUND to London with a BANG…and that’s an understatement.     To set the scene, we’ll jump ahead aread more READ MORE

POUND Launches at CMG Sports Clubs in Paris!

There’s nothing quite as exciting– and terrifying– as waiting for POUND to launch in a new market. Everytime we see classes begin in new gyms, cities and countries, it feels like the first time we watched our classes come to life! It was the first week of January 2012 and we both waited by the clock as the first wave of POUND classes were held in SF, Miami, and NYC… without us. We huddled up in our makeshift office in Laurel Canyon, excited, scared and elated all at once.   We thoroughly lurked your feedback, stories and comments on social media after each class: an obvious attempt to re-live the classes vicariously through the sweatyread more READ MORE

Check out these delicious Cauliflour Buffalo Wings! We tweaked our fave, buffalo chicken wings, to be a healthier, lower in sugar, and JUST as tasty! Find the recipe here!

Nothing screams “PARTYYYYY!” quite like sizzlin’ hot, bite-sized buffalo wings! AND, oddly enough, nothing screams “STOMACH ACHE!” as loud and clear as wings, either! Womp womp. Between all that saturated fat coming straight from the chicken skin, sodium from the signature firey sauce, and heapin’ calories from the mayo-based dipping sauce, wings take your stomach by storm… and then some.   So, as the FINAL comfort-food inspired TWEAK in your #twoweektweak celebration, we’re bringin’ you CAULIFLOWER BUFFALO WINGS that are not only spicy, tangy and finger-lickin’ good, but are tummy (and waistline) friendly! Win, win! That’s a “comforting” thought, now isn’t it   Wrangle these cheap, wholesome ingredients and make your own tonight! You haveread more READ MORE

How many times have you walked out of Outback Steakhouse wishing you could SOMEHOW find a recipe for their Bloomin' Onion that is WAY kinder to your waistline?! Well guess what ;) You're in luck!

Steamin’, soft, aromatic onion. Crunchy, spicy, savory coating. Tangy, creamy, decadent dipping sauce. You guessed it: we’re daydreamin’ about a Bloomin’ Onion, mates.   For some reason, every time we write “Bloomin’ Onion,” our mental monologue adopts a super-cute Aussie accent. It makes the deep-fried fantasy even more enticing because everything is better with an Australian accent, right? As we sit here salivating over the glorious steakhouse-signature in our Bloomin’ daydream, imagining ourselves sharing, dipping, and feasting, the harsh slap of reality makes an appearance:   One Bloomin’ Onion at your local steakhouse has a staggering 1948 calories, 160 grams of deep-fried fat (WTF?!), and 117 grams of simple carbohydrates, the same amount of carbsread more READ MORE

The POUND Girl's #TWT Kickin' Orange Chicken!

We’re pretty confident that orange chicken, although radioactive-orange and suspiciously tangy, is one of the BEST comfort foods on earth. Any Chinese takeout food, for that matter, lights quite a savory fire on our taste buds… and in our bellies! Loaded with excessive amounts of sodium (9,000 mg in ONE SERVING when 2,000 mg is a good daily max!), white rice, corn-syrupy sauces and often, MSG — it turns out our trusty takeaway isn’t so trusty afterall.   But seriously. Orange Chicken was practically BEGGING to be Tweaked. It even tweeted at us saying, “Tweak me, POUND Girls!!” (We’re going loco over pollo.) Believe-it-or-not, our cleaned up Kickin’ Orange Chicken is gluten-free, refined grain-free, lowerread more READ MORE

The POUND Girls GF Pumpkin Donuts

Glazed donuts are in a whole ‘nother dimension of tastiness. But when something is literally made from all the worst things for you (ie sugar, saturated fat and white flour) it’s hard for it NOT to be off-the-charts delish, right?   Here’s a stat that will knock the donut right out of your mouth: One, (yes, only ONE) pumpkin spice donut from a standard donut joint has over 450 calories and loads of sugar! We like to indulge in a few bites of the real deal now and then, but with THAT many calories, we could just eat a real, hearty meal, like some zesty zasta, kebabs and cobbler instead! That ENTIRE MEAL comes outread more READ MORE
