  • With the others - who are most of the artists? I'm late 60s now I barely recognize the names. Rock music and heavy metal did a better job of revving up your engine - heck so does some classical. This is one area that seems to focus on the young. Why because they grew up plugged in? We had Walkmans. - 1/12/2017 7:08:19 AM
  • I would rather see an all Classic Rock / English / Progressive Rock or all PINK FLOYD list. - 2/18/2016 9:18:16 PM
    Where's the Tijuana Brass when you need 'em? - 1/12/2016 8:58:13 PM
  • I just got a cd out from the band "The Blasters" nearly every one of their songs on this cd are awesome and foot stompin'. I keep my feet moving to the tunes!!

    Great article! - 1/12/2016 2:39:33 PM
  • No matter what my daughter says, I'm not old! Haven't even hit the 50 mark yet. She has a YouTube of 175 of "her" songs which some are horrible, but others I can't help but move to. LIke Uptown Funk -- never got tired of that. - 12/28/2015 6:22:25 PM

    This is a very energizing idea and look forward to creating one from all eras. BTW-OLD is a state of mind. I have learned to enjoy all types of music from classical to today's tunes. REMEMBER--We are not old, we are just not as young as we used to be. [This goes for all ages so it doesn't matter what age we are.] - 5/3/2015 2:51:06 PM
  • I saw an article somewhere about how many beats per minute to target for various workout activities (e.g. cardio, walking, cool-down), but can't seem to find it now. That's what would be helfpul to me because my workout list is very eclectic - some musical, some singing, in English, French, Spanish, old songs, new songs... There are very few musical styles I don't like, so it's really a matter of variety. One thing I have noticed that works best for me is to have longer songs (e.g. 6+ minutes each), rather than changing songs every couple of minutes. - 5/2/2015 8:31:33 AM
  • Great! - 4/22/2015 2:30:35 PM
    I agree about getting songs for over 50, actually over 70. We need a play list for us slightly over the hill folks - 1/12/2015 11:14:34 AM
  • How about songs from the '60s and '70s? - 1/12/2015 10:44:35 AM
    The problem I have with these workout song lists is they are always oriented towards the young crowd. It would be great to post a list for the older generation - music that we love. - 10/25/2014 12:39:16 PM
  • Good ideas. - 8/8/2014 5:29:09 AM
    Great article. Thanks for the guidance- I'm off to revamp my playlist! - 8/7/2014 9:56:19 AM
  • I just created a new playlist based on this idea. Great idea!! - 8/7/2014 9:21:27 AM
  • My gym playlist, entitled "RAAAAAAAAH!!!" is nothing but METAL.
