#MyPlaylist gets me moving – Charles Brown

Charles BrownHow do I get my 150 minutes?

I usually get my 150 minutes of physical activity each week by doing plyometric workouts, lifting weights, walking, and push-mowing my grass during the warm months. I like to work out late (usually after my three kids go to bed). I am not a great morning workout person! It must have something to do with being forced to wake up early and workout during my college baseball years!

My top 3 workout songs are:

  1. B.O.B by Outkast – This is an upbeat track that never lets up and keeps me moving.
  2. The Bounce by Jay-Z – This is an easy track for lighter days.
  3. Give it away by Red Hot Chili Peppers – This is a song that has always got me going, even during morning weights training in college.

According to the American Diabetes Association®, the economic burden of diabetes and prediabetes in the United States is over $327 billion in medical costs and lost productivity each year. However, 150 minutes of exercise each week can help reduce your risk for type 2 diabetes.

We want you to share the top 3 songs that get you moving with #MyPlaylist, and challenge your friends and coworkers to participate, as well. To get you started, we’ll be sharing #MyPlaylist entries from our employees on our blog.
