Motivational music

I love to exercise with my ipod. Whether I'm walking or at the Y, listening to music makes the time go so much faster and as long as the songs are fairly fast, it helps me keep the pace faster too. When my son is working out, he likes loud music - heavy metal, hard rock that kind of thing. I am a child of the 80s, so my favorite workout tunes tend to be from that era. However, when I'm getting towards the end of my workout or it's getting hard, there is one song that seems to motivate me to push through it. Brick House. :) Even though I will never be "36-24-36" (well not without surgical enhancements-LOL), that song just puts me in the mindset to want to look and feel my absolute best.

Of course, I am always looking for new songs to add to my workout play list, so I'd love to hear from you guys. What songs really make you want to crank up the workout and burn some serious calories?

  1. I actually don't listen to a single song when I work out. I used to but, then, my ipod went on the blink and I just don't feel like fixing it.

    But...I LOVE listening to music when I need some motivation cleaning...How about "We Will Rock You" by Queen? But, that's a short song. For a cd with a really, really fast and catchy beat try the cd by "Mr. President". I used to listen to that.

    Have a good day!
