A big part of my life has been about music.  I could hangout and just listen to music all day and have spent many hours at concerts just soaking it all in.  My earliest memory of music I have is driving around with my stepdad listening to 101.5 in New Jersey and he would tell me the year that song came out and where he was.  Usually it was somewhere in Vietnam or the Azores while he was in the Air Force.

I remember in the early 90’s grunge was big and I couldn’t understand a word they were saying.  I used to tell my stepdad that I liked his oldies better because I could understand the lyrics.  When I was in college I interned and then became employed at WRAT in Belmar.  This was an amazing opportunity for me because at the heart of it was music.

Music also keeps me going while I’m working out.  Melissa at Ultimate Fit Zone usually likes to play popular music and Eddie will put on hard rock.  While I do like both, I prefer the hard rock because it makes me push harder.  Here are some tunes for a good mix:


  • Crank It Up – David Guetta
  • Die Young – Kesha
  • Memories – David Guetta
  • Without You – David Guetta & Usher
  • More – Usher
  • Strong – Kanye West

Hard Rock

  • Down with the Sickness – Disturbed
  • I Hate Everything About You – Three Days Grace
  • Stupify – Disturbed
  • Remedy – Seether
  • Lit Up – Buckcherry
  • Inside the Fire – Disturbed

If this doesn’t get you moving, I don’t know what will….
