HuffPost Workouts: Mind Over Matter

Posted: 04/11/2012 10:41 am

Music is a very powerful tool when it comes to taking an individual to a "different place." This playlist is a compilation of songs that trigger certain memories and also entice emotions that take me to a place that helps me cope with a grueling workout. Whether a song reminds me of a struggle or a triumphant moment in my life, my music gets my "mind" to overcome any "matter."
