Recently, I read that Michelle Obama listens to Pete Rock and CL Smooth on her workout mix. Get it, Michelle! Our First Lady has an incredible body and remains adamant about getting America in shape.
I want to look like her in my forties, don’t you?
While I’m not a fan of Pete Rock or CL Smooth, my workout playlist does include the likes of Nicki Minaj (Roman’s Revenge is like a shot of adrenaline) and Beyonce (I hope you’ve seen her Move Your Body video for Michelle’s Let’s Move Campaign). I also throw a bit of Dancehall in there for good measure. After all, Elephant Man calls himself the energy god!
If you see someone running outdoors, hitting the gym, or even doing yoga, it is likely that they have headphones in their ears or music is blasting on a stereo.
