I LOVE Motion Traxx!!!!!!!!!! I found them through Fitness Magazine, and I do their Bikini Body and Drop a Jean size workouts regularly, switching them up depending on time. I also subscribed to their free podcast, available on iTunes (free again) and put them in my MP3 player AND my iPhone along with 20 Minute Yoga Downloads free podcast for 20 minute yoga to do immediately after a walk/run/ride. That gives me about 50-60 minutes of exercise, which reminds me it's time to hit the bike-seeya!!!!
Dead Last Finish is greater than Did Not Finish, which trumps Did Not Start.

“If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.” ~ Henry David Thoreau
"MIX IT UP"
We have talked here on Your QuickFire Challenge about how we are "Visual Creatures" and how pictures can motivate. We are also auditory and know how music can motivate us to move, long past the point we would like to quit! It is So important to find those tools that motivate and add them to your Business. The most important Business you have- Your Health.
We would like to Challenge you further here on Your QuickFire Challenge to create your own Fitness Playlist(s). There are several on-line sites you can do this, or even make your own at home, any way you chose. If you like, you can share them here in order to "Spark" someone else with a tune they may have not thought of - or may have forgotten. You can share a link to a site - or simply list those songs that are in your repertoire.
Go ahead and "Play it Forward"!
We have set up a separate link to our Message Board in which you are welcome to share your list!

Let's Get It Started"!
A "Must Have" for working out is iPod! My Playlists are Random and I change them up often!
I listen to mostly hip-hop/dance when I work out. No-one in my house can stand it so I have to keep it on the 'down low' and safely hidden away in my Pod!
Think: Timbaland, Timberlake...Anything having to do with falling lumber. Though I did throw in some of the local flavor (Nashville, TN). This is a current one that I am working out to for Cardio & Strength Training. Not sure if this link works correctly- does not seem to show the exact songs.
