Here’s a li’l taste of my latest post at FitMilwaukee. Head on over to read the entire article.
In case you haven’t noticed, Fit Milwaukee has become a huge movement in Milwaukee (have you seen the Facebook page? We have more than 550 members). Now, #fitmke has its own podcast!
The #fitmkemix is a collection of motivating, energizing (and sometimes relaxing) independent music from across the globe, all put together in a podcast to listen to while you work your bootay off. Think of the podcast as a radio show that you can download to your computer, iPod or other MP3 device.
The host and creator of #fitmkemix, Tracy Apps, is a Milwaukee graphic designer, web developer, photographer, drummer and social media addict who loves music. Apps says she started #fitmkemix to keep herself motivated by working out to good music. “I need a distraction to keep me going on that treadmill or elliptical.”
She is a fan of independent musicians, so Apps thought it seemed like a good fit to have a podcast with upbeat music highlighting lesser-known artists.
Because Apps is a drummer, she likes workout music with a good beat and chooses songs with a faster tempo. “I subconsciously will workout to the beat of a song,” says Apps.
