Kirsten Potenza

With the words, “Be Good. Do Good.” inked along her right foot, Kirsten Potenza, CEO and co-creator of POUND®—Rockout. Workout. leads her body, life and business with that mantra. She founded POUND at the age of 24, but was an entrepreneur long before that, opening an arts and crafts store in her backyard when she was six. She grew up in a tiny town in upstate New York and began playing sports at the age of five, eventually becoming a Division One athlete at UCLA. But it wasn’t until she left college and was no longer playing team sports that she realized there was a shift in what motivated her (and others) to workout. “I went from working out with purpose, camaraderie and lots of cheering, to moving my body just to look better, and it didn’t feel right." Kirsten designed POUND to be something that connected people directly with the beat, using music as an escape to empower and motivate. She believes strongly that a workout should feel as powerful and moving as playing or listening to music. Today, POUND transcends the common experience of the gym through the fusion of movement and making music. With over 20,000 trained instructors in over 90 countries, Kirsten feels strongly that POUND and its passionate community have the ability to shift the fitness conversation and be a catalyst for change.
