WIRED & Ready To Go!

Aaaand we are back with more FIT Radio music news!!  So, last week we posted about about the ZUMBA Station, and this week we’re all about informing you fine people about the WIRED: Sport Specific Station. This station was inspired by an article our Music Director came across in WIRED Magazine that discussed “Sport Specific” music and how listening to the correct BPM (beats per minute) can enhance your workout. For example, listen to an upbeat Top 40 hit during a spin class; WIRED suggests something along the lines of Rihanna’s “We Found Love” which boasts 129 BPM. For a longer, less concentrated intensity workout like distance running, your ears might find something a little less Top 40, more appealing, such as an Indie Dance mix featuring artists like Daft Punk and Foster The People. In a nut shell, this article reiterates what we already knew deep down in our guts: “listening to upbeat music when you workout not only causes you to push harder, it also distracts you from knowing you’re doing so.” Lucky for you, we’ve done all the work and have designed mixes of multiple genres and BPMs for your workout listening pleasure. Don’t be scared to use us outside of the gym too, we like it 😉

The Rimby Report

By superadmin,

Hi Fit fans!  I’ve got another roundup of great djs and mixes to call your attention to this week.

For you Indie Dance fans, we have a two-part mix collection called “Congratulations” by Nacho Vega.  GREAT energy throughout both mixes.  This is a recent personal favorite of mine.  Check it out!

In the Top40 station we have a newcomer by the name of DJ M.E.  This dj has been submitting awesome mixes to us on a weekly basis since he started and every one has been fantastic!  If you dig working out to intense mixes of the biggest radio and club hits then DJ M.E. is your man!

While we’re on the subject of club mixes, yours truly (RiMbY) just finished up a mix called “Shave The Roof” which features the heavier side of club and billboard remixes as well as some Electro House cuts.  Use this mix when you really need that extra jolt of inspiration!

Hip Hop heads…we haven’t forgotten about you!  FIT Radio resident Dizzy K is back with a vengeance with his “Vol.4 (2012)” and “Vol.5 (2012)” mixes.  When you really need to grind out those final reps in the weight room give these mixes a spin!
