    Meet POUND PRO Gretchen Combs

    Gretchen has been a NETA Certified Group Fitness Instructor since 1999 and has lead group fitness classes including Step, Stability Ball, and Abs: Tighten and Tone. In December 2014, Gretchen earned her POUND PRO certification and offered to start a POUND class for NCAARD. Gretchen's class quickly became popular so we talked her in to adding another. We now offer POUND on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 7 pm to 8 pm at the New Concord United Methodist Church.

    Gretchen has degrees from Bowling Green State University (B.S. Family Practices), Muskingum University (M.Ed. ECIS), and Franciscan University of Steubenville (Administration of Curriculum and Development). Along with leading POUND workouts, Gretchen is a preschool special education teacher, a 4H Cloverbud advisor, Adjunct Faculty at Muskingum University, and Girl Scout Leader. In her spare time, Gretchen enjoys running/training for local and destination races and spending time with her husband and two children.

    Gretchen challenges all POUND participants to break the "unbreakable" RIPSTIX - just because it feels good! She has so much energy and enthusiasm that she makes POUND fun for people of all exercise abilities!!

    Visit the "Adult" section of this website for more information on POUND classes. Gretchen would love to meet you!!
