Hey all! Well it is official! Dynamic Edge has made its move and is back settled in the Pacific Northwest. Big move, back to school, back to routine, and now need some tunes to stay motivated for fall bootcamp training or whatever fitness activities suit your fancy. Now I know it is gray, drizzly, and a little chilly already here in the Pacific Northwest. That makes for a disaster on the motivation front for staying fit. I know all I want is a nice warm Starbucks in my hand and to curl up with a blanket in front of the TV. Why does this weather do this to me? Some good tunes always tend to get me out the door. I just found some awesome new trails to test out that included fern gully, lots of mud, and an endless supply of slugs (if you are not from the Northwest, then go Google slugs for a great picture of the lovlies we have around here). Good thing for new trail shoes, so off running I go. Happy fall training!
1. Dynamite- Taio Cruz
What can I say? This song just makes me want to dance or RUN my hiney off. Great beat to stay moving to.
2. DJ Got Us Fallin' In Love- Usher
Usher has some great ones and after some life experiences it appears his newest work will be great as well. Another one that makes you want to boogie, so why not spin away to this or climb that next hill?!!
3. Ride to California- Paper Tongues
I have to say I really enjoy these guys. Their blend of rock, rap, funk, pop fusion works for me. Great song to pump out some extra reps with those dumbbells. Plus, I think I am secretly missing California...
4. Alejandro (Dave Aude Remix)- Lady Gaga
This mix is really one I love for cycling. It really helps me get in the zone on those flats.
5. Rusty Cage- Soundgarden
A classic one that I had to resurface. Really enjoy this for a great strength training workout. A little angry, rock motivation to get those last reps in.
6. For the Love of Money- The O'Jays
Really do not judge me, as I do not have a fascination for money... I just really love the funk and soul of this song. Great warm up into the real workout or for some climbs on that bike.
7. Misery- Maroon 5
I love that Maroon 5 is back. Great, catchy tune that can pump up your workout. Plus, the lyrics really stick with you.
8. I'm In Miami Trick- LMFAO
The clean version of course. Just love some funk from LMFAO. Great beat that will push you through that next mile.
9. Sweet Emotion- Aerosmith
Classic build here. Steven Tyler and the greatness of Aerosmith in its finest. Most of the time the song just brings me back to Dazed and Confused, but I love to rock out at the gym to this one.
10. California Dreamin' (Tekhouse Extended Mix)- Royal Gigolos
The first time I heard this was in spin class (thanks Jody Talbott), and I love the twist of an old favorite. More club version, but definitely works for any intervals. Plus, I do miss my California...
Best in health-
