In honor of National Relaxation Day on August 15, check out FFC’s August playlist, curated by FFC Gold Coast massage therapist Neale Baldyga! Neale says, “Hi, I’m Neale and music is my life. I work as a massage therapist at FFC Gold Coast, and I DJ, drum, and facilitate sound healing events throughout Chicago.”

Go-to workout song: “truly an impossible task. Rock would be my go-to genre.”

Why music is important for fitness: music has a limitless potential to help people create the feeling that they want for any particular workout. It can inspire you to dig deeper or to end in relaxation.
