First Post Ever!

Hello Blogworld! 

I’m so excited for my very first blog post!  Since Fit Tip Exchange is going to be a blog based on reader participation, and since I am currently my only reader :), I will kick off with a self intro and one of my own personal Fit Tips: a great play-list!

Part Uno: My Intro

  • I have a BA in Liberal Studies with focuses in Health Science, Communication, and Technical Writing
  • I am earning my MS in Health Service Administration
  • I have certifications in Spin from Johnny G, Kickboxing and Primary Group Exercise from AFAA, CPR, QPR, and AED
  • I have two babies: my puppy Sam and my cat Tucker
  • I’ll *most likely* try anything once (with the exceptions of drugs, bungee jumping, and eating bugs)
  • I work in a Wellness Center and I have probably taken over 200 body fat percentages in the past 2 years
  • I’m a total school nerd…In my world there are only two grades: A and failure 😉
  • I like to cook and bake…more so for other people than my self
  • I am completely obsessed with NCIS, and I get sad if I don’t watch one episode every day
  • I like grammar

That’s enough about me…tell me about yourselves!

Part Dos: The Playlist

Here is my play-list that I used for Spin yesterday…It was a very high energy class, and this mix could probably also work for running or an elliptical workout.

The Joker–Steve Miller Band  (Stretch)

19-2000 (Soul Child Remix)–Gorillaz  (Warm Up)

Big Pimpin/Papercut–Jay Z and Linkin Park  (Fast Isolations* and Sprint)

E-Pro–Beck  (Fast Climb)

I’m a Thug–Trick Daddy  (Heavy Jumps)

Human–The Killers  (Recovery)

Disturbia–Rihanna  (Fast Jumps)

Build It Up, Tear It Down–Fat Boy Slim  (Sprints)

Walk This Way–Run DMC  (Recovery)

Day ‘n’ Nite–Kid Cudi  (Fast Climb, Heavier)

Creator–Santogold  (Heavy Sprints)

I Feel Love–Blue Man Group  (Last Sprint…All Out!)

Flightless Bird, American Mouth–Iron and Wine  (Cool Down)

*Isolations are NOT a Spinning move, but we use them in my gym




Now its YOUR turn!  Start emailing me your Fit Tips at!
