I’m often asked what I do to keep in shape.  I jog quite a bit but the elliptical has sort of become my new obsession.

The younger me was more into team sports. I was an avid netball player and played for the Cayman Islands national team as a teenager and adult (I’ve played as recently as last July (on home turf in a tri-series against Canada).  However, in the last five years or so I’ve gained a liking for solo sporting activities like the gym and jogging outdoors.  With my hectic work schedule I find it more convenient to work out on my own because I can’t be as committed with group activities.  At this stage in my career my job comes first so sporting activities are secondary.  Of course, maintaining good health and fitness levels are very important to me so in no way would I jeopardise my health for a paycheck.  Working out solo provides a better opportunity to stay fit without letting down anyone (except maybe myself occasionally, and I know I can handle it).

Since moving to Hong Kong I haven’t jogged outdoors because frankly I don’t know the running/jogging paths in my area.  So I workout at one of the multitude of gyms on offer in HK.  To help pass the time I often listen to music or catch up on my favourite Netflix shows or watch YouTube.  When I do listen to music it is highly likely that the below 15 songs are on high rotation.  Several of the songs are not new but they still know how to move me.  I am a practicing Christian so I will always listen to something wholesome.  Not everyone will like or agree with my list but this is what I like.
