BROOKLYN FIT CHICK’S PLAYLIST

“Turn Into” 50-Minute Ride

 

Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

How is your 2017 going for you so far? I am feeling weird about how the world will turn out this coming year but am trying to remain healthy & strong to take on whatever challenges may come my way. (I am woman—hear me ROAR!)

Today’s playlist is a mixture of old and new tunes designed to make your workout fun and motivating. Let me know what you think in the comments below!

And as always, be sure to send me suggestions for your favorite tunes for working out. I am always looking for new ideas.

  • Turn Into: Yeah Yeah Yeahs

I have no idea what this band has been up to lately but I really love this song and hope to hear more from them soon.

 

  • Last Nite: The Strokes

My favorite music has a kind of bounce to it and this number from The Strokes always makes me smile.

 

  • Youth Without Youth: Metric

Metric is one of my favorite bands that I need to see in person one of these days. This song in particular is really motivating when I really want people to rev up and get out of their comfort zone.

 

  • Locked Out of Heaven: Bruno Mars

I love me some Bruno Mars and this gem of a tune really gets people to bop their heads to the beat and have some fun during the ride.

 

  • Get Up (Sex Machine): James Brown

I know he had a reputation for being a rather tough task master but damn the results are totally amazing. Can’t decide which makes me happier—the piano solo or the “get on up!” chant.

 

  • Rope: Foo Fighters

The Foos always get the room amped up and ready to break some sprinting records. This is one of my favorites by them because it really “rawks”!

 

  • Carried Away: Passion Pit

The cheeriness of this song always puts me in good mood and is a nice break from the hard rock—until we get more techno….

 

  • Came Back Haunted: Nine Inch Nails

This is a fantastic song for sprinting and has thumping beat along with Trent Reznor’s killer vocals. Me likey!

 

  • Free: Phish

When my inner hippie needs to come out and play—I put on some Phish music and sway like a visitor from the 70s. The lyrics here are so calm and inspiring—add it to your playlist stat!

 

  • Getting’ Jiggy Wit it: Will Smith

Here we go a little old school with Will Smith and some 90s hip hop. Woot!

 

  • Tearing Me Up: Bob Moses

The music shifts here to be a little moodier & super dreamy and always makes me work a little harder while adding resistance to the wheel.

 

  • Ring of Fire: Social Distortion

This has to be my favorite cover of one of my favorite Johnny Cash songs of all time. A rollicking way to end the workout.

 

  • Somebody to Love: George Michael with Queen

RIP George Michael.

 

That’s it for me this time. I will be back soon with another batch of tunes to get you all kinds of motivated!

 

Until next time…

Ox Ox,

New Brooklyn Fit Chick Playlist “Personal Jesus” Ride #FitFluential 7

BROOKLYN FIT CHICK’S WORKOUT PLAYLIST

“Personal Jesus” Playlist (50-minute Ride)

johnnycash4_e

Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

I am really working on getting up my playlists on a timelier basis as I really do enjoy putting them together. Please feel free to send along your own suggestions for music I should check out especially warm up and slow, hard driving “climb” songs as those are crucial for getting people motivated.

In fact, leave comments below on what songs, music, musicians and bands that put you in the mood to workout.

Is there a tune that makes you run faster?

Do you lift better listening to hard rock?

If you hear Alanis on your iPod—does your inner rock goddess make you work even harder on the elliptical?

Let me know!

So on to today’s playlist. There isn’t any particular theme attached to it—just a mixture of old and new songs that get me in the mood to be the best teacher I can each time I walk into the gym. Let’s get to it, shall we?

Personal Jesus: Johnny Cash
When my brother served in the Navy he told me that when his crew would go for deep dives in their submarine—this song would be playing as they explored the deep sea. I just love the image of it and wanted to pass it along to you. You’re welcome!

Town Called Malice: The Jam
Really fun piece of 80s British pop that puts me in a spirited mood.

Breathing Underwater: Metric
This is one of those bands that played in NYC recently and I could just kick myself in the arse for missing them. (Dammit!)

Ain’t Messin’ Round: Gary Clark Jr.
If this song doesn’t get your heart rate pumping—you need to have someone check you pulse!

Take a Walk: Passion Pit
This is one of those “add gear and start climbing” tunes that gets everyone in a good mood.

Walk Away: James Gang
I hear this and it makes me want to drink beer and get in a bar fight. (In a good way!)

Pinhead: The Ramones
Gabba Gabba Hey!

Runnin’ Down a Dream: Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers
The video really used to freak me out back in the day. But the song is still great.

Butterfly: Crazy Town
The lead singer of this bad is a sad drug addict who gets kicked out of home on Celebrity Rehab. It can’t be easy to be a one-hit wonder.

Natural One: The Folk Implosion
I liked to do “heavy sprints” to this song.

Without Me: Eminem
Remember when Marshal Mathers ruled the world? Me too.

Midnight City: M83
I love how “mid-80s techno” this sounds (Like it should have been on the soundtrack for Real Genius) and it is fun to climb to as well.

Southside: Moby

For some reason I hated this song when it came out which seems insane to me now.

Try: P!nk
I have been going through a big P!nk phase right now and I like it!

So what do you think of my list? Remember to send me your favorite tunes in the comments below.

Until next time…
