24 Morning Workout Tips That Are Actually Helpful
by: HANNAH NEWMAN
We know not everyone is a morning person. (And even fewer of us are eager to wake up and hit the gym.) But getting up and moving can actually be an amazing way to start your day. More

Fit Radio is EXACTLY what I have been looking for. I love that I have the ability to let the app detect my pace for my “jogging” days and generate my BPM target rate to help me maintain my pace on “running” days. The controls are really intuitive and easy to set up by target pace and genre.
I saw a Facebook Ad for Fit Radio. I just completed a great 10K race, but I was frustrated with the playlists I had cobbled together on Apple Music. Not being a big Trance or EDM music fan, I wasn’t crazy about the few 170 BPM running albums I found in my search either. In the past, I tried a couple different music apps that claimed to work with my playlists and music library, but they didn’t sync correctly with my Apple Music subscription and they didn’t offer their own mixes.
The ad for Fit Radio popped up in my feed and I figured, “It’s worth a shot,” but I never expected to be “wowed” by it. I’m so glad I clicked! The different genres make it so easy to quickly choose music that fits my mood. Being able to choose mixes based on my BPM helps me keep a steady running pace. I love the integrated timing, distance, and cadence features too. (Which also save me from draining battery life by opening other fitness apps.) I have a feeling my next races will have much better soundtracks!
During the last weekend of August, the Fit Radio Team made their way to Imagine Music Festival at Atlanta Motor Speedway just south of Atlanta, GA. Previously held within the metro area, This was the Imagine Music Festival’s first year expanding to a much larger venue. Because of this, it allowed for massive stage production, a more extensive lineup of performers, more event days, and the addition of a camping ground rounded off the iconic music festival experience. The Imagine Music Festival went off with a bang, featuring top-tier EDM acts including: Adventure Club, Benny Benassi, Steve Angello, Dillon Francis, and more. Several of Fit Radio’s own DJ residents were also in attendance throwing down awesome sets from Progressive Trance to Drum N Bass.
Our Music Director Nora was able to cover several sets from the weekend and here are her top picks (although extremely hard to choose!) and where to find these artists on Fit Radio for your workout music needs!
Dillon Francis headlined Imagine’s Main Stage, Oceania, with a hard-hitting set of heavy electro matched with his unique moombahton sound. His music is fitting for cardio or stair climber workouts where you need a slow but hard-hitting beat.

This Montreal-based producer started the first night of Imagine off right with a heavy set of dubstep, hip hop, and even some heavy metal samples that shook the main stage. His sound is sure to motivate any heavy workouts or weightlifting sessions.

This Russian-based producer rocked the Disco Inferno stage on the last night of Imagine, bringing high-energy house music and uplifting trance. His music is ideal for any workouts at a 130 BPM pace including elliptical, cardio, and even running!

What made Imagine Music festival especially unique was the addition of a full Drum N Bass stage on the last day of the festival. Fit Radio’s High Kalliber performed on the stage in the early evening and didn’t hesitate to drop the heaviest DnB beats to get the crowd prepared for the later acts to come! Drum N Bass is great for faster BPM workouts (170-180 BPM range) such as sprinting.

Q: Who do you think should run for president in two years?
A: Daenerys Targaryen. (Yep I went there!)
Q: How many push up’s you can do?
A: In a row, I would say about 45. Then, I would fall over.
Q: Would you eat a bowl of crickets for $100,000?
A: Are we talking live crickets? Would some kind of seasoning salt be permitted? (Either way, I’d still most likely do it!)
Q: What are your top 3 gigs you have ever DJed?
A: This is a though one. Actually, I think Fit Radio has worked with them. I did a Night Nation Run Festival in Los Angles last year with 15,000 people. That would definitely be one of my favorite shows. The other 2 would have to be when I played in South Korea at Club Answer and I love Canada so I would say the shows I’ve done up in Grande Prairie, Alberta.
Q: What did you think the 1st time you played the Fit Radio App?
A: Great App! People needed something like this. Especially for running, gym sessions, or even road trips.
Q: How does Fit Radio help people’s workouts?
A: Music has a tremendous effect on the way you feel. The right mix can motivate you to go the extra mile or keep pushing through your workout when you feel like quitting.
Q: What is the best feature on Fit Radio?
A: The Selection of mixes available. Plus having them all categorized really helps you navigate to exactly the style of music you’re looking for.
Q: How do you prepare a mix for Fit Radio?
A: I really like finding different and new styles of music and mixing them together with familiar elements of songs that are more recognizable to people. It’s a great way to introduce new music to the listener. When I start making the mix, I try to pair up vocals from hit records with newer, more abstract tracks. I think of a mix as a whole piece of music, as opposed to a collection of songs. So, it’s very common to always hear something going on, even in the spaces between tracks.
We had a chance to catch up with DJ Scuffs after the event and here is what he had to say:
Q: What was the Night Nation Run event like?
A: It was a super dope event. So much energy from start to finish. Essentially, it’s a big music festival with a 5K race course going through it. There are multiple sounds and DJs playing all day and through the night with some DJs actually positioned on the course to help keep you pumped and moving all the way to the main stage.
Q: Fill in the blank: DJing at Night Nation Run Toronto was _______.
A: An amazing experience, a cool concept, and one of the best events I’ve ever played at and been a part of.
Q: When you create a Fit Radio mix, what do you always make sure to do?
A: I always make sure it’s a perfect combination of style, fun, energy, and it keeps you wanting more.

In addition to being the most popular man in the EDM scene, Tiesto has also produced tracks for Diplo, Busta Rhymes, Nelly Furtado, and many more.
