(1) SOUL POLES

DEBBIE HARRY ON HEALTH, FITNESS AND MUSIC - INTERVIEW WITH MUSIQUE (THAT'S ME)
Me: What inspires you to work out? How do you work out? And is it true that you love the Insanity workout?
Debbie Harry: I have a great trainer who runs me through all kinds of hoops. He takes exercises from everywhere - it's unlimited. He shows me multitasking plyometric techniques to do on my own.
Me: You were a part of the sex, drugs, rock + roll scene in the 1970's. Did fitness have a role in that scene?...
I'm calling it Goodbye 2011 because as one year ends an even better one gets ushered in. I know you're with me on this one!

This is an unconventional workout mix but I quite like it because it starts with Ludo (I went to highschool with frontman, Andrew Volpe) and ends with my new-found musical crush, Michael Kiwanuka. My puggles and I are listening to the mix right now as we prepare to go out for an evening run.

Music is often the little push we need to get our limbs moving and our butts to the gym (or wherever you like to work out). I love how a fresh new mix gets me to pick up my pace and distracts me from unimportant side thoughts. Consider switching up your playlist as often as you can in order to focus on your workout, free your mind and find your zone. Set the mood for your best performance.
