For those of you out there who are group exercise instructors and junkies, especially the cardio ones (Turbo Kickboxing, Zumba anyone?), you’d know all about BPM or beats per minute. It’s like a metronome that will dictate your every move in class.
Oh no the flashbacks…the horrors of piano practice…STOP! STOP IT!! Side note: Who else here was forced to play piano? It’s a common Asian tradition.
My friend Chris who happens to be the resident workout music EXPERT for Marie Claire Magazine has a whole website dedicated to cool songs that you can listen to. You can sort by things like source, tempo, genre, and decade. See it here .
Really good way to find new music. As silly as this sounds, I am NOT a good music picker! I find it hard to browse new songs so I call my sister and ask her what’s in instead :P
Sometimes I use Pandora or Last.fm to TRY to find new music. Most of the time I look at what you guys tell me on Facebook .
