St. Dorothy: POUNDing Away a Ped Day

On the Friday March 2, 2018 pedagogical day at St. Dorothy Daycare, Enfant et Compagnie, came to do a POUND workout with the children in the morning. It was the first time our daycare tried this activity and the children loved it. Not only did they get a great workout but they had a blast.  

POUND is a cardio jam session inspired by playing the drums. The children used Rip Stix, which are light drumsticks made for this specific exercise. POUND is a combination of cardio, strength, yoga and Pilates. It worked well in our school and we were a group of 20 children from the ages of 5 to 10.  

Managing the rhythm and coordination were the most challenging for the students, which helped to keep them focused and interested for the full session.
