Here’s this month’s guest playlist from Crystal Reeves, NASM Master Trainer!

I chose the songs in this month’s playlist because they have strong lyrics that keep me thinking about my goals or are songs that make me want to sing and dance. The playlist starts with a slower tempo and lyrics of “I had a dream so big and loud” and “take back my life.” I start each workout reminding myself or clients why I/we are doing this. The tempo increases to follow the flow of the OPT model with stronger beats and tempos in the middle and slowing down for a cool down. The playlist concludes with a song that leaves me feeling happy and lyrics that tell me to be “brighter than the sun.”


Here’s this month’s guest playlist from Russell Wynter, NASM Master Trainer!

I chose these songs based on music I listen to. Using the NASM OPT model as my guide, the playlist starts off with a little humor for the SMR portion, gets you up and moving as the energy of the workout increases, and uses a slower tempo during the cool down with an affirmation as the very last words. I hope you enjoy this playlist as much as I enjoyed making it.
