Fitness Soul Rap – Experiment

Before listening to my new song
(yes, I’ve recorded a song, and you will have a dubious pleasure to listen to it. And yes, it’s that bad!), please read the article below.
Only then you will have a chance to understand my reasons and motives.

For those of you, who regardless of my above plea, decided to listen to the song anyway, I apologise.
I really wanted to sound like Eminem and create beats like Dr Dre, but I couldn’t replicate them. As my friend and real-life music producer noticed “from a technical point of view, in terms of vocal processing as well as delivery and rhyme scheme etc. it’s very basic, so don’t give up your day job yet”
But this is not the point. Now, please read the article before slanging my publicly 🙂

You see, I’m on the war against the comfort zone. I believe that nothing good ever happens there, and life is too short to be wasted on going vanilla.
I’m using my own fear as a compass. The more I dread something, the higher the satisfaction of pushing through. I know I’m going in the right direction.
Creativity is a great passion of mine, I always considered myself an arty person, I love making new things, paint or shot short videos.
The one area of creativity I have always stray from was singing. My voice isn’t good, and I don’t think I have a musical ear either.

I had to do something about it. No, I didn’t want to become a full-time rapper, but I want to prove myself I can.
I’ve decided to do record a rap song. I’ve given myself 7 days to come up with the idea, write lyrics, create music, record and produce. It was a completely new experience, and I know that the song is far from good.
I would be surprised if it were. I am a novice, taking the first steps in this realm. Don’t judge me too harshly!

During the process of creation, I have felt entirely out of my element. Everything was new and strange. I felt embarrassed by my lack of understanding the basics, but I pressed on anyway.
I realise that this must be precisely how my personal training clients feel about starting the journey with me at Fitness Soul.
Knowing how they feel, I will be able to understand and cater to their needs better.
So if you are about to start your fitness journey, please remember that this novelty fear will pass, and more you do the better you get. I have witnessed at least a couple of dozen transformation; in a few months, people who couldn’t perform one push up would work up to multiple handstand ones.
They improved not because they have been talented, but because of hard work; they show up to all sessions.
If they got better, so can you.
And there is even a chance that my next song will be a little bit better too!

Ok, are you ready?

Remember, you have been warned! 🙂
