Is there a certain song that you must play during every work out?"

depends on the workout:
running - I need a good beat, but also need a mix of tempo so I don't overrun or underrun
strength training - usually just a mix of songs I like
5k / 10k - a very specific timed playlist works wonders. There are certain songs that I love to run to, or that motivate me to keep going no matter how much I want to walk, so I include them in my race playlist (Cake - The Distance, Tom Petty - Runnin' Down a Dream, Young The Giant - My Body, The Offspring - Original Prankster, etc.)

my MP3 has everything from Audioslave to Hank Williams Sr!

The stuff that keeps me going is dubstep honestly. Skrillex, Klaypex, Ephixa - all my favorites. Even some Sub Focus. Personally dubstep just makes me stoked on life and gives me energy to keep going.

I like all kinds of music but Latin, some techno, dance and soul music are my go to songs during a workout! Reminds me to make another workout playlist soon.

Sample of a few songs I listen to during cardio--
End of Time--Beyoncé
Magic Love--Bent
New York City Nights--Leif Garrett
Quisiera Ser--Alejandro Sanz
Glamorous/Glamorous Life--Fergie/Sheila E.
Quero Te A Sambar--Yuliet Topaz

Strength Training is upbeat but a little bit slower so I don't go totally insane and injure myself!

"If a person wants to be a part of your life, they will make an obvious effort to do so. Think twice before reserving a space in your heart for people who do not make an effort to stay."

"Your happiness is up to you. Whatever happened in your life to make you who you are up until this point is irrelevant. It is your responsibility now to take control and change your life to be what you want it to be. Energy and persistence conquer all things. Make time, not excuses."

When I am doing cardio, I always listen to music and I seem to always play these songs:

United - Judas Priest
I Don't Care - Fall out Boy
I Feel like Dancing - All Time Low
I am Woman - Helen Reddy

I am apparently confused about which decade I'm in............. emoticon

We just watched John Fogerty's concert last night, and I'd have to say, it rocked! I remember dancing to a lot of his tunes in high school. It made me want to jump up and do it again! His new album out yesterday is "Wrote A Song For Everyone."

Keep a sense of humor. Remember, laughing burns calories too!

Laugh until it hurts! It's one of the few things in life that's still free!!

Any effort is better than no effort!

For working out (weight lifting) I now like to listen to what's called "Euro-Trance", for some reason it gets me PUMPED to lift.

Sipping coffee in the early morning I like current country music.

Goin to the club with my gf: Current pop-music, alternative 80's or country line dancing.

intimate time (vanilla): R&B
intimate time (non-vanilla): music from The Matrix Soundtrack (and other music like that)

Alone time: JAZZ (non-vocal)

USING SP TO HELP YOU KEEP TRACK OF WEIGHT LOSs, CALORIE INTAKE AND EXERCISE "IS" THE SHORTCUT!!!!!!
sTOP TRYING TO CONSUME A MAGIC WEIGHTLOSS PILL, OY!

I am a huge, huge music freak.. I love all music except the hardest metal (screaming kind) and no rap..there have been some R&B songs that have rap within the songs and those are cool too!


What music gets you going to be dancing too for your work outs, what do you dig?

I find it funny because some days I can work out to country while other days are in my era of the 70s and 80s I do like some of the 90s stuff too..

Is there a certain song that you must play during every work out?

Julie

Live, Love, Laugh
