I have been tired at boot camp this past week. Why? Well I have been up way past my bedtime, all for good reason though. In the last week I have been to TWO concerts….that were BOTH amazing. There is something so magical about great live performances – whether it is music, dance, sports, theater, magic, and/or the Pageant of the Masters (if you haven’t been, I highly suggest you go). I am 150% capitaved. I can’t pay attention to ANYTHING else besides the music when I am a concert. I can’t pay attention to ANYTHING else but the game/match when I am at a sporting event. I am hooked…and not just for that moment but for a lifetime, since I have the memories of the experience for a lifetime. The playlist I have am sharing for you is a mix of the artists I have seen in the last week (minus Taylor Swift since she has some bad blood with Spotify). Once I put this mix on at boot camp, I am no longer tired. I …

It may be the Coachella the line up is less and less important to many, but for us, the music is the ultimate motivation and pump up so we’ve pulled together some of our favs from the Coachella stage!
“It’s spring and it’s time to add an extra bounce and shimmy to your workout. How do you make that happen? Well…I’ve got the answer. Add THIS playlist to your repertoire. Each song is guaranteed to make you work harder, make your heart race faster…pushing you to hit higher reps or keep going longer than you planned (a really great feeling)! So rock on and get pumped!” – Holly
“My NEW playlist, ‘Bad Ass, NOW’ is a collaboration of BAD ASS 90’s and early 2000’s hip hop. And NOW, being your playlist, will bring back good old memories, keep your energy up, and your mind in tune with conquering whatever exercise comes your way! Live & Train, BAD ASS!” – Jared

For the holidays, Lori, a 6 am boot camper, gave us her very special holiday playlist. Check out how cool she is! A printed card, alongside a printed list of the mix read…
“The Holidays are here! So this is my 5th annual holiday music mix! This labor of love started at the end of 2009 when I thought, ‘I’ve seen some great shows this year, wish I could share them with all of my friends!’ Well, this CD is the best I can do. To land on this precious mix, the songs have to meet some (very personal) criteria: I have to have seen the band perform live int he last year, I have to have liked them, and, the band released a new album in 2013. From there, I go to work picking my favorites. I try to choose deeper cuts- exposing something new. I hope you like it, hope you discover something new, and hope it helps …
“My playlist depends on what I am doing for my workout. When I am home doing one of my own workouts, I can pretty much put on my Pandora Station and leave it there all day. Here is what generally plays (over and over again)! The great thing about this playlist is that you really can play it for ANY type of workout.” ~ Holly
“When I go for a run, I listen to all kinds of music, mostly music that I don’t actually listen to at any other time. I listen because it has a certain beat or it inspires me. I am running a 10k on Thanksgiving and here is a taste (get it???) of what I will be listening to as I earn my turkey dinner and potatoes! Enjoy!” ~ Holly
“This is MY latest high energy BEAST MODE playlist! I like when the playlist starts HARD to establish a “LET’S GO!” type of tone and stays strong, yet brings an element of liberating fun throughout. ENJOY!” – Jared
