Favorite Songs for Warm Ups and Stretching

I do not know about you but, music has always been a big part of my life.  Whenever I am feeling down, happy, in love, excited or silly I always can rely on a good song to spice up that feeling.  

As a personal trainer or fitness instructors we depend on music to set the mood for a sweaty session.  When I am working out on my own I keep it easy with my favorite workout mix from Pandora.  I know that there are tons of music apps out there, but, I tend to always go back to Pandora.  

Fun Fact: I used to be a pretty good singer, I was selected to sing at a national choir when I was 12 years old.  I was too shy to participate, so I opted out of it.  One of those things that I always think back and regret...   
 My little sister Andrea is a very talented singer.  She is going to kill me for sharing this with you all, but click HERE to hear her sing lol...

Anyway...  I have absolutely being loving these two songs for my warm ups.  
"Ghost" by Ella Henderson (click on the photo to listen)

Joseph introduced me to this song recently and I have been obsessed with Ella every since.

For those longer warm up days another song I have being adding to the mix, and a suggestion from Christian, is "Somebody to You" by The Vamps... (click on the photo to listen)

 When it is time to stretch, I love me some Ed Sheeran!  Ohh Ed...  This man is just so talented and I have to admit that I first fell in love with "Thinking Out Loud" during a not so happy day for me and the hubby.  This song came on the radio after a calm silent moment during a brief minute of bickering between the hubby and I.  The song came on and we just looked at each other, hugged, laughed, cried a little bit and then went back to loving each other again.  LOL!

I love anything this man sings.  (click the photo to listen)

Another perfect song for stretching or after conquering a tough sweaty session is "Conqueror" by Estelle.  Joseph also introduced me to this one.  He said this song made him think of me.  

Hey, I am a Conqueror, he's a conqueror and so are you!
