Brooklyn Fit Chick Playlist: Canadians and Classic Rock Rule!


The “Canadians, Hip Hop and Classic Rock” Ride


Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

Today I am featuring my new favorite playlist which features a nice mix of old favorites and maybe a few new (to you) ones as well. Hope they inspire you on your next workout!!

  • Best Look Lately: Dear Rouge

OMG—new favorite song in the world! Dear Rouge is a Canadian duo that won a bunch of songwriting contest in the last couple of years and I think they will soon gain popularity in the States. (And my little Blog gave them their start!)

  • Ch Check it Out: Beastie Boys

Representin’ Brooklyn!!!

  • Get the Party Started: P!nk

This was written by Linda Perry of 4 Non-Blondes—bet you didn’t know that!

  • You Should Be Dancing: Bee Gees

Not only is this one of my favorite songs of all time but it serves as the soundtrack for my all-time top dance sequence on film. (So much going on here…)

  • Weapon of Choice: Fat Boy Slim

The video is quite simply fantastic. Yes folks, Christopher Walken can cut a rug!

  • In da Club: 50 Cent

(I cannot believe this guy dated Chelsea Handler!)

  • Looking at the World from the Bottom: Mike Doughty

I know most people know Mike Doughty from Soul Coughing but I am all about his solo work and this tune in particular grooves like crazy.

  • Crabbuckit: K-Os

In my continuing work to help Canadian artists get more American fans—I give you K-Os. (You’re welcome!)

  • Level: The Raconteurs

When does Jack White ever sleep? Does anyone know? How the hell can he put out so much music?

  • The Pit: Silversun Pickups

This is my “sprinting” tune where I make my class move as fast as they can for 10-15 seconds at time. It completely motivates them to haul their butts.

  • Comfortably Numb: Pink Floyd

My one big self-indulgence is playing me some kick ass classic rock and Pink Floyd kicks ass the most of all.

  • The Drugs Don’t Work: The Verve

Such a great 90s band—I miss them.

That’s all I have today folks. Let me know about some of your favorite songs and radio stations. I am always looking for good tunes.

Brooklyn Fit Chick Vlog Ep 88: She’s Nacho Mama Podcast, Fit Bottomed Girls Spin Tips, Manhattanhenge & Momentum Giveaway!

Brooklyn Fit Chick Vlog Episode #88

She’s Nacho Mama Podcast, Tips for Indoor Cycling Classes, “Manhattanhenge”

Plus: Motivate Wrap and Foot Notes Shoe Charm from Momentum Giveaway

 Momentum Motivate Wrap

Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

It has been quite a hot week in New York and I have been busier than usual in both my work life and “real” life but as always I am happy to do my weekly check-in with all of you. So instead of babbling on and on—let’s dive right in to this week’s news bits (which includes a giveaway & discount code from Momentum workout jewelry) and then head into this week’s Vlog (my 88th!)

  • She’s Nacho Mama’s Podcast: Power to the Margos! The lovely Margo of She’s Nacho Mama Podcast had me once again as a guest on her show to talk all about Fitbloggin in Savannah and it was a hoot! First of all we were both obsessed with The Pink House and Jim Williams who was the main subject featured in the non-fiction book Midnight In the Garden of Good & Evil (Kevin Spacey played him in the utterly forgettable Clint Eastwood film.) The two Margos talk about our daily exploits during the convention, our favorite meals, the hot weather, my messy hair, her ice cream-stained outfit and more in this rollicking hour. Thank you so much Margo for having me on your show!
  • Manhattanhenge: What is Manhattanhenge? Well basically there are only two nights each year where the sun sets along New York City and the sun aligns perfectly between the buildings. My awesome big brother Joe suggested we go together and we started at the Tudor City Bridge overpass on 42nd street which quickly became too crowded so he suggested we watch from the street. At first I played the role of his mother and scolded him for walking into traffic to get a better look. But soon enough we were both standing in the middle of the street getting our shot in. See!


Look, up in the sky! It's a sunset!

Look, up in the sky! It’s a sunset!


I have a video of the moment as well where you can hear me squealing with delight. It was just so cool!!!


  • Motivate Giveaway: Motivate was created by Amy Cochrane who wanted to offer workout lovers wearable jewelry to the gym (or on the road) to both inspire and look cool. Motivate has dozens of options for both colors and slogans you want to wear on your wrist (the Motivate Wrap) or shoe laces (Foot Notes shoe charm) and all of the work is top notch. Even better than looking great—they are SO comfortable to wear. You will not have something that feels scratchy or binding on your wrist and it will give just that hint of extra awesome when you need a little extra motivation.
  • I am hosting a giveaway on my Blog this week but if you are looking to order one on your own be sure to visit their website and use the code GGS 158 to get an extra 15% off up until September 15, 2014. Score!
