From the Oldies Vault: Working It Out (literally)

While many of us are staying home, this REALLY is the perfect time to start a healthy, exercise program.

The Oldies Vault of Workout Music is sure to get you moving.  Whether you’re a foxy lady trying to “stay” foxy, a gal “trying” to be foxy – or a guy hoping to look buff to “find” a foxy lady, The Jimi Hendrix Experience and their Foxy Lady classic can rev up your heart rate.

Get walking and warm up with Lost Hits:  Look Out for Number One by Tommy Faragher and Far From Over by Frank Stallone (Sly’s kid brother) both from 80’s Staying Alive soundtrack.  Power Walking?  Pump Up the Volume with M/A/R/R/S and keep up your fast pace with 60’s Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels.

If you’re looking for smooth grooves for your workout routine, you can can’t beat Curtis Mayfield’s charismatic SuperflyStrut your stuff with Sheena Easton or any one of Prince’s pulsating classics like Thieves in the Temple or U Got the Look (remember, to “get” the look, you “need” to work out).

Adding some weights to your routine?  Push It with White Horse, My Prerogative, Fantastic Voyage, Walkin’ On The Sun – all repetitious, even, fast paced beats guaranteed help you glide through your exercise or weight routine.

Ready to blow it all out?  Find your high energy with 50’s insane rockers Little Richard and Jerry Lee Lewis.  Grab a Flashlight and Tear The Roof Off the Sucker with funk masters, Parliament, featuring George Clinton!  Need a working out attitude?  So What?  Go ahead, be a Rock Star and stay Pretty Fly.

Music can help you burn calories, manage stress and keep you healthy.  Step into a musical time warp and re-visit some of your favorite groups of the past.  Load them into your favorite listening devices and check them out on YouTube.  Go ahead – burn some calories and Dance To The Music!
