Brooklyn Fit Chick News & Notes September 2016

Big News with Fit Bottomed Girls Podcast—Which Health, Fitness, Wellness Stars Do YOU Want Us to Interview?

I Need Help with My Playlists (Send me your songs!)

Urban Hoodie 

Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

I have been busy with so many work & life things lately that I have fallen behind with my Blogging-sorry about that! I am still here but am perfecting my digital skills creating something that has become a passion for me—podcasting.

Many of you know that I co-host a podcast with my friend Margo of She’s Nacho Mamas Blog that has now going into its third season–Book Vs Movie.

I am also the NYC contributor for Fit Bottomed Girls so I convinced them to let me produce and co-host their own podcast which is seriously taking off! Some of the guests we have lined up include:

  • Bob Harper
  • Jeanette Jenkins
  • Tony Horton
  • Kathy Smith (SQUEE!!)

We may just move to a weekly show if we keep up with this pace and downloads so my question to you today is—what guest would you like us to get on the show? Or do you have a topic you wish we would cover? Let me know in the comments below. We really want to know what you want to fill into your earholes!

Also, I am in need of your help in another area of my life—music! I love to create playlists for my classes and recently featured this one with Beyoncé and Coldplay that got some great comments. My problem is that I need more ideas for songs. My repertoire is getting dry and I feel like I need to mix things up more. So I am requesting if you could also take the time and write in the comments below:

  • Your favorite workout tunes and what you use them for (running, sprints, climb, Zumba—whatever!)
  • A “one hit wonder” song that makes you smile and not go “ICK!” I have been commissioned to write one and my instinct is to go all 90s. Need some variety in my mix!

That’s it for me this time. Let me know what you are up to and I will be back with my usual playlist and activities soon. Happy Autumn!

Brooklyn Fit Chick Playlist with @Beyonce @OneRepublic #Coldplay and more! 14

BROOKLYN FIT CHICK’S PLAYLIST

“Counting Stars (2016)” Playlist (50 Minute-Ride)

Turns out they know each other!

Turns out they know each other!

Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

I quickly threw together a playlist over the weekend and guess what? I managed to NOT include Avicii in one this time! (I will give you a moment to recover from the shock.)

Instead, I went back to a OneRepublic (their spelling, not mine) song that I love and did my usual “mix the old with the new” and see if magic can happen.  (The initial reviews are looking good so far!)

Let me know what you think and please leave some song suggestions in the comments below or on Twitter @BrooklynFitChik.

Oh! And just wanted to remind you I am co-host of the brand new  Fit Bottomed Girls podcast so come check us out! http://fitbottomedgirls.com/podcast/

Now let’s get to gettin’!

  • Counting Stars: OneRepublic

This song is a uniter not a divider because it makes the whole room happy when they hear it. Perfect for the warmup portion and gets things off to an energetic start.

 

  • Got Your Number: Serena Ryder

Canadian chanteuse Serena Ryder writes these kick-ass songs that are strong and bold. I really love to play this one as a “second song’ as it builds on the energy of the warmup.

 

  • Can’t Hold Us: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

This is the Macklemore I love—loud and brash without any sentimentality going on.

 

  • Promiscuous: Nelly Furtado & Timbaland

Some of my favorite jams comes from Timothy of Timbaland,

 

  • Waterfalls: TLC

I can’t think of any human being who doesn’t absolutely LOVE this song when I play it. I love using it for slow climbs in my spin classes.

 

  • Lust for Life: Iggy Pop

For this song I ask the students to perform some running out of the saddle drills but with some punk rock attitude. (Most attempt which is so adorable.)

 

  • Houdini: Foster the People

This is the most fun and bounciest tune in the whole ride. (LOVE it!)

 

  • Only: Nine Inch Nails

My inner 90s rock chick needs to hear some Trent Reznor from time to time and this song fits the bill. (Warning—there is a clean and an explicit version of this one!)

 

  • Hymn for the Weekend: Coldply (with Beyonce!)

I thought their paring at the last Superbowl was a fluke. Turns out Bey recorded with the boys of Coldplay a while ago. Who knew?

 

  • Starships: Nicki Minaj

Once again—a clean and explicit version exists here!

 

  • Tearing Me Up: Bob Moses

This is my new favorite, sexy slow jam and I am turning many of my students into Bob Moses fans. (You’re welcome, society at large!)

 

  • I Feel Love: Blue Man Group

We finish with a faster pace song before the cool down and people seem to dig this version of the Donna Summer classic.

 

  • Wildflowers: Tom Petty

The world is better because Tom is in it and let’s just all form a prayer circle around him so we do not lose another amazing musician this year!

 

That’s it for me this time. What are your new favorite tunes you think I should check out?

 

Until next time…

Brooklyn Fit Chick News & Notes: New Fit Bottomed Girls Podcast and More! 21

 

Brooklyn Fit Chick News & Notes Summer 2016:

The Launch of the Fit Bottomed Girls Podcast!

Best Core Workouts for Summer Sports and More!

Plus: Book Vs Movie 2nd Anniversary!

 brooklynfitnesschickBIKE_0701

Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

I can’t believe how long it has been since I put up a new blog post but life got a little crazy, busy on the work side. The good news—I am working on a project I pitched to the Fit Bottomed Girls and we are really taking off with it!

A little over two months ago I pitched the idea of producing and co-hosting a podcast for Fit Bottomed Girls and now we are officially a thing which pleases me to no end. It’s been a labor of love that has been taking up a great deal of my time this summer but I must say I am really proud of what we have created to far.

If you want to get more details, check out:

7 Reasons You Need to Subscribe to our Podcast where we go into why we decided to go down this new digital pathway.

For our first episode we spoke to Rebekah “Bex Life” Borucki and discussed with the meditation maven about how to find time  to meditate within a busy life and also what to do when you are feeling like you are in a funk. She was equal parts wise and hilarious—just as you picture her to be!

In upcoming shows, we will have USA Beach Volleyball champ April Ross (!), Shape magazine editor-in-chief Elizabeth Goodman Artis, yoga expert Kristin McGee,  dietitian Frances Largeman-Roth and Refinery 29’s Kelsey Miller (“The Anti-Diet Project.”)

Would love any feedback you have for us and/or if you have any suggestions for guests you want to hear on our new show—let me know in the comments below!

Fit Bottomed Girls Hits:

As some of you know—I am a NYC contributor for Fit Bottomed Girls as well as their new podcast diva and these are some of my favorite stories I have worked on recently for them.

  • If you have ever wondered about taking a DNA test to find out your ancestry plus whatever details your DNA has to do with your health—then check out this piece where I tried three different DNA tests and the results that came in!
  • Do you have any old fitness trackers that you no longer need? Well then you can print out a form linked within this article and help out Recycle Health which is a fabulous non-profit helping to give folks who really need a tracker but perhaps can’t afford one. They will be monitored and researched by the good folks at Tufts University. Win/Win!
  • Okay, so this might be a little dated by now but in June I posted my favorite workout songs of 2016 so far. Some fun tracks are listed if you are looking for inspiration for your playlists.
  • Finally, in this feature I spoke with SUP Yoga expert Chelsea Roller of West Marine to talk about the best core moves you can do to prep for summer water sports such as surfing, kayaking, SUP yoga and water skiing. Check that out here!

Finally, I just wanted to mention that my friend Margo of She’s Nacho Mamas Blog and me just celebrated the two-year anniversary of our podcast with a brand new Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil episode. This is a “do-over” from our first few shows which were not up to our current standards. If you want to check it out—then here you go!

 

That’s it for me this time. Enjoy the rest of your summer and I will be back with new playlist and more very soon. Promise!
