Shingai for Nike Women

Get Up, Stomp Yo Feet, & Get Down

I’ve gotten back into a habit of hitting the gym every morning and not skipping a beat. That Fitspiration post and the Nike Make Yourself campaign have truly inspired me to be the epitome of good health. There is never a dull moment when I hate working out, evening if I’m pushing myself to the limit. No pain, no gain, right? Being fit is a challenge but it’s also a fun time to reflect on important life decisions and say goodbye to all the mean words anybody has ever said to you. Anger shouldn’t be your only motivation when running on the treadmill, but it sure is a great motivation!

Working out and being active is all about getting up, stomping yo feet, and getting down! Those actions are what getting pumped is all about, even if you’re cutting it up on the dance floor. But as usual, it’s hard to get motivated unless you’ve got those songs that make your body twitch and put you into hyper-speed. Whenever I have those moments where I’m dead tired, I’ll put on specific tracks, as if I was taking a shot of adrenaline. Music is my adrenaline, it’s my drug, and it’s essential to having an epic work out.

Check out some great dance tracks I use to get hyped, especially “Battle for Middle You.” It’s the track that inspired this post and it’s one of my favorite songs by Julio Bashmore. It has the lyrics “People get up, stomp yo feet, and get down.” That’s awesome!

Phonat – “Set me free” music video

Cassius – Youth Speed Trouble Cigarettes

Lady Gaga – Marry The Night (Zedd Remix)

I love the Zedd remix of this song! I saw a stripper on America’s Got Talent dance to it and fell in love with it! Okay, wait, that sounded strange. Let me just post the stripper and you’ll see, this song rocks and he was pretty talented! I would never be a stripper or anything, but hey it’s kind of like an art form. Some people are really talented.  Of course he didn’t make it to the finals, but it’s okay, I wasn’t routing for him. My hope is that Team iLuminate wins AGT talent, fingers are crossed!
