In case we’re meeting for the first time: Hey! We’re Kirsten and Cristina, founders of POUND – Rockout. Workout and self-proclaimed fitness rebels. 9 times out of 10, you’ll find us sporting hand-cut rocker tees with a vintage flannel around the waist and rustling up noise complaints at the gym. We love taking risks with our workouts AND our #sweatstyle. We like to make our own rules when it comes to the way we dress.
And when it comes to footwear, our number one rule is SUPPORT! That’s why you’ve seen us rockin’ Skechers Flex Appeal and Equalizer training shoes — because we’re loving the supportive, comfortable memory foam insoles!
Choosing the right kicks for the right class makes all the difference. In the gym, consider three variables: surface, movement, and impact. Wearing shoes with more grip encourages balance on a slippery wood surface; a smoother bottom saves your knees and joints on a sticky or rubber floor; cushion and support are paramount in a class with jumping and quick transitions. So what kind of shoes can you wear for a full-body cardio jam session filled with over 15,000 reps of the best strength and conditioning moves? Skechers.
Whether you’re making noise at home with the POUND Rockout Results System or in the gym at a live class, POUND incorporates hundreds of plyos (jumps), squats, and lunges. For the seasoned gym vet or those new to fitness, it’s important to remember that proper training starts from the bottom up (yep, directly from your Skechers sneaks!). We depend on a strong, supportive foundation to help us jump higher, lunge further, and squat lower. Skechers’ innovative memory foam insoles keep us safe and strong in and out of the gym.
