3 Fitness Coaches Discuss Their Nerd Love of Music

We all have a music playlist that gets us pumped in the gym. Maybe one for relaxing on a Sunday morning. You probably also have an “I’m sad and down in the dumps” mix or, as Barney Stinson called it, your “Get Psyched Mix”.

Music moves us. It can stir all sorts of emotions and even bring people together in harmony.

Growing up, the music that played through my house as classic rock, country, and soft rock. My aunt, who was a teenager and a constant babysitter, exposed me to the alternative rock of the 90s.

Once I got a computer, however, and began to download songs on Napster, the spectrum of music I listened to grew.

I began to notice how one band, or sound, influenced bands in later decades. I could see the LEGO blocks building on each other as each genre influenced or birthed the next generations genre.

Music is an area of life where I’m a huge geek.

It’s also important to many other people I know and in this episode of Coaches Corner, Tanner Baze, Nick Sorrell, and I dig deep into the music that has influenced our lives. Music that moves us, that gets us pumped, and that makes us feel more alive.
