Nine years into this 21st century with the SNL spoof long gone and America continuing to drift into shapelessness, who are we to look to for physical fitness motivation? Who can inspire and pump up the next generation of fitness gurus?
Is it The Biggest Loser and its fitness fanatics, Jillian and Bob? No.
Is it celebrities Christie Brinkley and Chuck Norris for the Total Gym? Definitely not.
Ladies and gentlemen, I bring you B-MAMA, here to PUMP YOU UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Can you tell I'm running high on endorphins?? :) My treadmill blast this morning was just the ticket to getting me on here and pumping up the Building Cathedrals audience! Woohoo!!
On tap for today is my iPod playlist. Turn on some music and get pumping!!! I just downloaded a bunch of new songs (thanks to an iTunes Christmas gift card!) and felt a whole new surge of motivation... Come with me! My first recommendation is One Step At A Time by Jordin Sparks. Some may mock this selection as a bit cheesy (common for my taste), but I find it to be incredibly positive and motivating, especially at mile 8 with 2 to go! Another goodie is Shut Up and Let Me Go by the British band, The Ting Tings. It has a great beat to carry you through mid-workout and leave you feeling strong. And you better believe this guy is on my playlist--nothing like a good 80's tune for the warm-up or cool down.
So there are a few of my recent faves to get you through a chilly afternoon and get you movin'!!
Go ahead and pass along your favorite workout tunes in the comments section! What songs get you motivated?
And just remember the rule about good, old inertia--that which is at rest will remain at rest, UNTIL YOU DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!!! Fight sedentary inertia and PUMP UP, Building Cathedrals!! This is Coach B-mama signing off and heading to go ice my quads!!
