Music Motivates Me!
I Motivate My Classes!
Thirty Plus Years Teaching Fitness Classes…
Has grown my music library for sure! Back in the 80’s we were carrying around cassette tapes, & Cd’s… one class to another, Cd’s were scratched, tapes were breaking! Most the time we were stuck with what I call “studio-fake music”, a real downer for a class in my opinion. If there was music you loved, you were stuck using it over and over, demotivating to say the least!
ITUNES! Classes were never the same!
There are just a few things to consider when you are choosing music for fitness. Unless it is a cool down, or something you want to meditate to, don’t do anything slow and under 120 beats per minute (bpm). You will not be motivated when you need it most. Save the slow mushy for hanging out and relaxing. Step up for everything else!
Many of you ask about my music! Lucky for you it’s easy to share now because of Apple ITunes. Most likely this will be my music go to source until I retire…
Morning Sunrise Boot Camp AKA Bodyshop
(Although this class is no longer running since I retired, you still need to find good wake up music. This is a great selection for the morning!)
We really need our morning Java for this one! Those cold dark winters can be brutal at 5:50 AM!
