I’ll admit, I like pump up music/videos. Something that makes you want to get up and hit it. Hard. Here’s my current favorite:
I’ve been watching this a lot. Seeing the power, skill and determination these athletes are demonstrating helps me suck it up a bit at 4:30 am when I’m rolling out of bed to go to the gym. It doesn’t make it entirely ok to be up at that ungodly hour, let’s not be crazy, but it helps light a fire under my butt.
And watching this, I’m reminded that strong is sexy. About 53 seconds in, you see a group of athletes heading to an event. Those legs, those shoulders, but more than that, the SWAGGER. These women know that they are badass. I’m quite certain that any of them would easily kick my ass at any WOD. And perhaps this frames me as a very shallow person, but I love seeing women with a bit of muscle. I think it makes them look strong, confident and (to me anyway) more interesting. These are people with passion, and who like being active. Add to that the fact that they can help me move a couch up a flight of stairs, and you’ve got quite the appealing package.
