  • “Complicated” – Poi Dog Pondering
    Always finds its way onto my exercise playlist, no matter how I revise it! Great cardio tempo, motivating lyrics, perhaps a curse word as warning to sensitive ears….

  • Waka Waka is worth an iTunes download. My fitness enthusiasm sounds like “Black Betty” by Ram Jam. That and a little Usher.

The Sound of Fitness Enthusiasm

As your avid fitness guru, I wholeheartedly aspire daily to motivate you- inspire you- and help to reshape your experiences with fitness! Ideally, I hope to make your fitness experiences better, more enjoyable and more rewarding. “Motivation,” also reasoned as enthusiasm, comes in many shapes, forms and methods—and is essential to adhering to any exercise regimen. For today’s blog post we can label “music” as our fitness “enthusiasm”!
