Put Some Pep in Your Step

I don’t know if you subscribe to “Self” magazine, but the last issue was all about music. I LOVE all types of music and it helps me get through my workouts so much more easily! Setting your pace is easier when you have a beat. I figured I would post some of my favorite work out songs for you to see. I know that not everybody likes the same music, so I am going to try to give a few good examples of what I like from each genre (bare with me, I don’t know much about some).
