As you probably have noticed the Jonesin’ girls love a good challenge. We have “Run to the Sun” and currently are working on “A Mile + A Minute” which has us logging at least 1 mile a day, along with a 1 minute plank.
Courtney is here to tell you about another challenge- check it out and BONUS: she made you an awesome playlist to get you movin’ and groovin’!
Good Morning! Time to rise and shine and get your workout on! Each year The News Journal has a ten week challenge called “Move It Delaware”. The challenge is simple – 150 minutes of exercise a week, anyway you like. The challenge is free and it is not too late to sign up!
Go ahead and sign up…. You know you want to….Move It Delaware
So in honor of the Move It Delaware Challenge, I have created the perfect Get You Moving Playlist.
Ugly Heart – G.R.L. Let your inner pop princess/prince come out with this song. Yes, it’s an all-girl group, and yes you can bet I sing this as loud as I can when I am alone. When I am teaching a cycling class, it’s all I can do to NOT sing into the mic.
New Thang – Redfoo. Redfoo is popping off and so is this little jammie jam. Even the older students in my class are down with “Foo”.
Contagious – Night Riots. You can settle into a nice running pace with this song.
Fools Gold – Fitz and the Tantrums. I guarantee you will like this song. You just want to sprint (or climb if you are in a cycling class) when the chorus comes on. You will feel better after hearing this song.
Ex’s & Oh’s – Elle King. Rob Schneider’s daughter kills it on this track! Yeah that’s right, Rob Schneider off of Saturday Night Live! His daughter will soon be just as big of a celebrity because of her voice, just wait. And remember, you heard it here first.
You’re So Beautiful (feat. Jussie Smollett and Yazz) – Empire Cast. My only regret over my maternity leave – why the heck did I not get into Empire sooner?!? That show is on point! And the music – wow – it’s amazing. This song reminds me of what a collabo of John Legend and Chingy might be like. The best part, no cussing – so it’s perfect for my classes at the Y!
Shake it Out – Manchester Orchestra. Manchester Orchestra is coming to Firefly Music Festival this summer. Get your tickets people!!
Get It – Matt & Kim. This song has helped me through many dreaded treadmill runs this winter. Download it and rock out to it. And they too will be at Firelfy this year!
Supersoaker – Kings of Leon. Another Firefly band!
And last but not least…
Keep it Movin’ (feat Sereyah McNeil and Yazz) – Empire Cast. Umm how appropriate it this song for the challenge?!? LOVE this song.
So keep on Moving Delaware! You have your playlist, no go out there and get your 150 minutes! #MoveItDE
