(Nathaniel Watson, June 2007)There are some obvious comparisons betweenmusicians and athletes: both havestressful performance expectations and subjectthemselves to spurts of high physicaldemand - often with a limited amount ofrecovery time. But imagine if a figure skateror gymnast practised only their routine, anddidn't do stretching, or weights, or dance ...Trading ideas with reader Trina Wasilewskion the topic of "music as medicine",the discussion turned to musicians who useathletics as a kind of "medicine". Trina saidthat, recently, her cyclist husband, out on hisSunday morning ride, rode alongside a cycletouristand slowed down to chat. The cyclistsaid he'd started out in Montreal and wasriding counter clock-wise around Lake Ontariothen back to Montreal simply for hisown health and pleasure, "no more than halfa day at a time"!" ... The fellow revealed that he is a singerand had already been on a bike tour in Europeearlier in the year riding in the Pyrenees andthe Alps. My husband further inquired abouthis singing and the rider eventually revealedthat he is Nathaniel Watson who has sung allthe major Early, Baroque and Classical baritoneand bass roles with countless orchestrasand will be singing in Mozart's Requiem withTafelmusik in the spring.

He's currentlytraining for the 70.3 World Championshipin Clearwater, Florida, in November.Some musicians do nothing vigorous at all,and stay far away from bicycles, ice skates,and skis for fear of injuring themselves, or(like many of us) out of sheer laziness orapathy. But there seem to be as many whosay things like "I do Pilates and yoga andAlexander technique every day before I practise.. .. " or "I absolutely cannot sing I play if Idon't run I cycle every day" .Some say their physical training impactson energy and stamina, providing a way tostretch and build different muscles than thosedemanded by their instrument. Others assertit provides a vital outlet for nerves: first-aidfor performance anxiety .Others, like Nat Watson, claim that it'sentirely for pleasure and mental well-being.He later commented "I find it doesn't helpmy singing: one is sucking air down the throatand breathing constantly through themouth,which really dries out the voice .....
