My Music Treasure Chest

If you know me at all, or perhaps even from having glimpsed at my blog, you would know that right up there with fitness in my life is my preoccupation with and passion for amazing music.

It’s a day late but here’s your BANGIN’ song for the gym this week. I can’t get enough of this track, thank you to my dear friend Ewan for the intro. It’s been playing about 5 times a day or more in my headphones and in my car, not to mention we had a pretty fun little dance party around my living room to it Friday evening! I love a good Aretha sample, and the original song is a favourite (I Never Loved a Man – Aretha Franklin). Listen here: And then you can follow this link to buy it on iTunes: Crazy P – When We On (Bonus...
