When I first laid eyes on the title and artwork for Lizzo’s new single, I imagined a song with a fairly rapid tempo that Jane Fonda may have worked out to back in the day. That is not what ‘Fitness’ sounds like, and that makes me happy because her version is so much better. However, I’m not entirely sure how well this would transfer to a real-world exercise type situation, unless your routine includes slow-motion, sensual prowling.
OR it would also make for the perfect bedroom soundtrack. Many babies will be made while this song plays. It’s seductive, but still a little silly, with the perfect amount of confidence and attitude, altogether the kind of musical strut that we’ve happily come to expect from Lizzo.

I work, live and play in Minneapolis.
I try to tell the story of the people that create music and experiences through pictures as well as through words.
