Katy Perry- “Rise” song

Listen to this video, click this

So I am not sure if everyone has heard of this new song Katy Perry has put out, but I love it! something about the meaning and what it stands for all makes sense to me and to be honest it makes for a great workout song as well! I know this seems a bit out of the box when it comes to fitness and health, but if you think about it, we all like good music when we are working up a sweat and so I think every once in a while, I will share some playlist songs or one song at a time and kind of explain why I like it and get your opinions on it. For starters this song was used for the Rio Olympics 2016, used for political reasons and gets radio attention as well (obviously) but the more places I go, I seem to always hear this song play at least once. I am not a Katy Perry fanatic but I do enjoy most of her songs and she has put out a couple of songs that have a positive outlook and really bring out some type of emotions. I feel as though this song really can make one whom is about to give up push on further and harder, I think the meaning behind it is obvious; basically her singing about going against the odds even when you don’t think you can make it- you will. Nonetheless, if you have yet to listen to this song, I would highly recommend listening to it at least once, it may not be everyone’s cup of tea but figured I would share it anyhow in case someone needs more songs to add to their playlist. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Hello! College graduate in exercise science and ACSM Certified Personal Trainer. My blog has all kinds of fun topics, something for everyone who is anyone that involves themselves with fitness. I like to think of fitness as a confidence booster, something to make us feel good and look good & pushes us to do things that make us feel more productive, unstoppable and stronger mentally and physically. My blog focuses on building people, and helping people see their true potential, while also sharing my journey with workouts, competing with powerlifting, and sharing how to's on workouts, so you step inside the gym with more knowledge. I don't know everything but I am on a voyage to build my character, my strength and work on my weaknesses --- with awesome people in my corner who support me and my goals. I plan on being your cheerleader, friend, coach and trainer all-in-one and most of all, I want to be your listener, the person who can listen and gain more knowledge about you and learn what makes fitness important to you; what's your why! (Your why will carry you to the finish line). It's important to have purpose for something, because you will need that purpose when you start to give up on yourself or want to quit. "Don't let the fire that guides you, dim" - Shay-lon Besides the fitness stuff, I reside in Ohio, love dogs and love pizza. Typical 26 year old trying to build an empire that brings out the best in others and makes me the best person I can be in all aspects in my life. Before I die, I want a reason to live, and I was given that reason each day I am able to wake up --- I have learned to not take life for granted and to explore as much as possible because to live with zero regrets would be fantastic! "I've conquered many things, but I still have much to learn about life, because nobody can know everything. & every battle is different" - Shay-lon
