Music Monday

What MOVES you?

There have been quite a few studies on music during exercise.  There is no "ONE BEST" genre of music to work out to. Who says that everyone is motivated by 168bpm during cardio? I had a client who listens to pieces like Vangelis' Chariots of Fire, Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture and Quintero's 300 Violins (*she's a music teacher at a local high school)

The key to finding great Motivational Music, is deciding your mood, your goals, and what MOVES YOU!

Here's what is moving ME, this week!

Motivation Monday!

One of my favorite quotes of all-time...

"Ask ye not for a lighter load, but for a stronger back"

Here is some visual motivation!
Don't EVER say, that something is IMPOSSIBLE --»

Ladies... dont be SCURRED to be AMAZING!

Now... Not everyone will have the "urge" to move a Truck or a Train, in the physical sense...
but what about those daily endeavours that feel JUST AS HEAVY a load to bare, in your every day life.

The same tips for one can be applied to the other ::
1. Focus, concentrate on the task at hand
- Set your mind RIGHT, and the rest gets LEFT

2. Brace yourself!
- Strap in, find your balance & get ready to MOVE.

3. Overcome Inertia (standstill) with little steps, low to the ground
- Take the LARGE problem/load, and handle it step by step, starting from the ground up

4. Push Forward, Don't stop your FEET
- Even though it's a challenge, the burden is staggering, KEEP PUSHING THRU!

- pretty self-explanitory...

What seemingly immovable objects are in your path, today? This week?
Focus, Break it down, GET MOVING & Don't forget to BREATHE!
