What's Your Fitness Jam?

No matter what the mood...there was always music in her head!

What's your fitness theme "song"? 

Does anyone remember the television series "Ally McBeal" ?  It starred quirky Calista Flockhart as a lawyer with some rather odd tendencies. One that I always admired was her "theme song". Ally's therapist suggested that she pick a theme song to help her tackle challenges.  When ever Ally needed inspiration, was down, feeling sexy, or seemingly whenever she walked down the street...she heard Al Green and instantly, she was at peace and ready to conquer the world. Now....I am clearly showing my age by revisiting a series canceled years ago but somehow Ally's feel good jam came into my mind while I was at the gym. First because I also show my age based on my music selection and second because I realized that certain songs also made me move faster, push trough more treadmill time, and even made me feel sexy (while dripping in sweat...if that's possible). I even had myself an Ally McBeal moment when I was inspired by my music to do "the wobble". That seems totally okay, right? Well it does until you hear that I was on the treadmill at the time! Remember the slogan from your childhood toys..."weebles wobble but they don't fall down"? Well this weeble wobbled and did fall down! "The Wobble" will now be removed from my playlist!

I am a bit embarrassed to reveal the total content of my playlist because I am in my 30's and must not know it nor the year in which we live..but hey, they are my theme songs right?! Some of you may find solace in inspirational Christian tunes, others rock and roll, but me....I am an old school hip hop girl.
My stair workout!

Tonight's top 5 workout favorites:
1) Jumpin' Jumpin' - Destiny's Child
2) Poison - Bel Biv Devoe
3) Ain't to Proud to Beg - TLC
4) Shoop - Salt n' Pepa
5) No Diggity - Blackstreet
6) Rump Shaker - Wrex n' Effect (just for a bonus)

This brings me to my point and question... What song makes you move...makes you happy...or makes you inspired? If you don't have one..I encourage you to dig through some old tracks and notice your change in mood or outlook. Everyone should have a theme song! What is yours? I would love to add to my playlist!!

I can't wait to see and hear your songs!

One of the best parts of being a Jazzercise instructor is that the music is always pumping -- and changes regularly. I know how much the right music can make a difference to your workout. Nice to read your blog; I'm visiting from the blog hop. Stop by and see me at www.pushingonarope.com

Talking about music is cool, but here at Monday's Music Moves Me we have themes and we post music videos. We would love you to play along. Why don't you read my Post, and see if you would be interested in the way we do things, and have fun and blog hop to the next one to see what they're rockin' too. We'd love to have you!
