Rock Out Your Workout!

It’s no surprise that both Hannah & I are huge music buffs, but we never knew what a BIG roll it would play in both our weight loss & maintenance journey! A good music playlist is just as important as the workout itself. Music will motivate, inspire, and give you a good butt kicking when needed! We guarantee that great music will push you to workout 150% harder than without it. Think about it….how many times have you taken a group fitness class & although the workout was good you left not liking it because the instructor played El Crappola music? (yes, that is the technical term) Anyway, you get where we are going with this.

There are so many places these days to obtain great music.  iTunes on its own provides more musical fun for your ears than they could ever take in in a lifetime.  Although, we are avid iTunes fans, we are also loving Spotify these days.  You can find all the information for this program at Spotify.com.  Spotify also has an amazing app in addition to their awesome desktop version.  So, for those do you still saying “But guys….I don’t have time to look through that music & I wouldn’t even know where to start…”. Fear not….we have something for you too…we wouldn’t leave you hanging like that!  For you there is an awesome app we both have been listening too lately.  FIT Radio is a great app that provides tons of channels in TONS of genres.  There is something for everyone & they even feature guest DJ’s to mix up your favorite tunes!  The app is specifically designed for exercise so it’s perfect for workouts!  See…soooooo many options to get your groove on.

Ok, since so many of you ask us what we listen to….we thought we would compile a small list for you.  It’s only a top 10 because it basically changes with the wind. ☺. We will update now & again so you will have to stay tuned for new lists!  Ahem…Pun intended.

So, now you have NO excuses!!  Get out there and have a dance party at your gym…or wherever.  Let us know in the comments what songs you workout to!!  We can always use an excuse to buy more music! Wooohooo!!

Health & Happiness,

Olivia & Hannah
