Brooklyn Fit Chick September News: I Need Your Help with Music Suggestions

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!

    So I feel like I’m going to be totally non-helpful here. I don’t listen to podcasts or music while I run (audiobook fan 🙂 ).

    I think I might be the only person who does not listen to podcasts! I do feel like I am always bored of my music. I still love the old Brittany to work out to

    I too don’t listen to podcasts or even music when I run! However you can’t go wrong with some old Vanilla Ice or TLC from the 80’sand 90’s.

    I guess Deborah and I are the only non-podcasters here! LOL! I just downloaded Whitesnake’s Here I Go Again for my running playlist. Nothing says retro 80’s like Whitesnake, right?

    I haven’t listened to a podcast while running in quite a while. I was addicted to the first season of Serial, and then I never got into anything else. Boo me. I’ve been listening to a lot of musicals lately – I get the benefit of music and a story.

    hmm- I love running to music- I like old school R & B to pick up the pace!

    I don’t do podcasts, either (yet). I’m from the 80’s…so my tunes are a mix of everything…I LOVE Bon Jovi and AC/DC, and Def Leppard (totally dating myself LOL)…

    I listen to the occasional podcast, but not very often as I run in an urban environment and need to hear what’s around me. And my latest playlist was created back when ABBA was still cool. ;o)

    I’m all about the old school rock and pop songs, think 80s and 90s. They keep me upbeat and moving.

    What songs are on my playlist usually vary – but lately, they’ve been a little repetitive because that’s what’s been working. My favorite workout tunes are:

    Glee Cast – Do you Wanna Touch (Warm up, walk)
    MisterWives: Best I Can Do (running, 6.5mph)
    Fall Out Boy: Uma Thurman (Running, 6 mph)
    MisterWives: No Need for Dreaming (Running, 5 mph)

    G-Eazy: Calm Down (Weight Training)
    Drake: Jumpman (Weight Training)
    Kaskade: Step One Two (Weight Training)
    Nero: My Eyes (Weight Training)

    Hmm… I don’t think i have a one hit wonder – do the Ting Tings count? “That’s Not My Name?” I haven’t heard anything else of theirs. I personally like another song off their same album called “Keep your Head”…

    Hope you’re able to get a pretty good mix!

    The podcasts I listen to are story-style NPR radio shows – This American Life, The Moth Radio Hour, etc. I feel like I “grew up” doing Kathy Smith exercise videos – how cool to interview her!

      She was so cool! Really nice and very forthcoming. I hope you like that interview!
