Sweat It Out With Show Tunes

One of my deepest loves is musical theatre (even though I…cough, cough…can’t sing worth a damn), so my go-to workout playlist is consequently a mash-up of various Broadway soundtracks.

Hey, don’t judge! Call mah crazy, but those catchy lyrics and upbeat tempos just put me in a gotta-get-up-and-dance kinda mood. And that’s exactly what I do.  So, for all my fellow Broadway Babes out there (and even you skeptics…or, should I say “soon-to-be converts”), I’ve compiled a list of my favorite musical numbers (with corresponding YouTube links for easy access). Hopefully, they’ll motivate you to shape up in the same way they’ve motivated me!

Trust the “expert”…this works.
