Work It

Posted on: January 15th, 2013



In previous years I have embraced January as a fresh start, and as a time to get in shape for the upcoming summer. But I’m jaded now, and wiser (nah) after all these years… I know summer isn’t “around the corner,” it’s six months away! So this year I need extra help getting psyched about exercise. Behold, my work-out mix!


There’s nothing cliche about this playlist… no “Kanye’s Workout Plan,” just tried-and-true songs to keep your adrenaline going. I can’t explain exactly why each of these songs is effective – some are fast paced, others have a rhythmic beat, and some are just delightfully vulgar – apparently that’s the distraction I need. I hope this mix will be as useful for you as it has been for me. Enjoy.
