About the Playlist

These tunes can be used for a warm up, a cool down, or both. Conveniently timed at just a little over 60 minutes, use half for a warm up and the other half for a cool down. The playlist was created for beginning with a gentle warm up of the entire body by articulating different parts of the body while gradually picking up the pace. The play list then slows down again to prepare the body the longer, slower movements and stretching.

Here are some key benefits of warming up and cooling down.

Benefits of the Warm Up:

  • Warming up should occur before any physical activity especially before stretching. This allows the body to increase circulation, body temperature, and heart rate.
  • Prepares for the body for explosive movements like sprinting or jumping
  • Prevents and reduces injury
  • Warm up for at least 20-30 minutes to allow the body time respond, this can also help mental preparation
  • Allows greater range of motion during the actual workout
Here are some examples of a warm up.

Benefits of the Cool Down:
