Music

Music is probably one of the biggest issues facing CF West.  That no one has acknowledged the inherent superiority of my musical tastes is causing some big problems. Really, the nerve.  Kyle likes rap, Golden likes Boyz 2 Men, Cliff’s iPod is just an embarrassment (the tough bow hunter big wave surfer has a serious Mariah Carey collection), and if Jesse plays one more Celine Dion song, I am defecting to Body Pump. I know that everyone has songs that they like to work out to, but frankly, and I am going public with this, not enough people appreciate the advantages that Danzig and Sword bring to any WOD, not too mention Fire Sermon and Social D.

So I have hit upon a compromise.  Well…actually Jocelyn hit upon it, but since I am writing it up, I am blatantly taking the credit.  If everyone emails Jocelyn ([email protected]) or posts to Comments their two favorite training songs, we will (er, Jocelyn will) make some mixes to be played in all the classes.

So let’s have it folks. What are the tunes that help you PR, that buoy a heavy deadlift, that float your chest to the bar, that make you sprint just a little faster?

Welcome to CF West Jim, although you might not get so lucky in your workout partners next time.

I hate to admit it, but Chris' very sensible reflective running shoes kind of spoils the whole tough guy shot.
