A CD player??! A mixtape?!? A music store??? How old is this article??? I felt like I was transported back to high school in the 80's! While I agree with the concept (I have a couple of different workout playlists IN MY PHONE) this article needs a serious update! I think I'll start a thread just to track favorite workout songs; I'm sure I won't be the first but I haven't seen one in a while.
I always listened to "I Heart Radio" . But today I looked in the app store and found Fit Radio and I like it! There is every kind of music there, except country! I enjoyed my workout and the time went by faster! It's FREE! They will give you a 15 minute trial before you register just to see if you will like it, but it's still FREE! I put it on my iPhone and will probably install it on my iPad!
I downloaded a free album of electronic dance music from Amazon several months ago, and it is about the most perfect blend of high-energy music for me when I walk or workout on the elliptical. Really gets me going!
Shape magazine has had free workout music downloads each month this summer. There's about 5 songs ranging from current top 40 to some older stuff and best of all it's free. Not sure if they do this all year long or not. I discovered it in June and have really enjoyed the mixes. :) http://shape.workoutmusic.com/

Sometimes music is the only thing that makes my workout bearable! I couldn't imagine exercising without it!
I have a playlist on my phone that I use for exercise. It mostly dance tunes and other fast-paced songs. The built-in media player on my Windows Phone did not have a way to shuffle playlists, so I wrote an app to do that and it works great. Anyone with a Windows Phone can get it free here: http://bit.ly/qVQCL0
right now i'm working on my stamina, so i've creatred a playlist of 2min & 3 min songs so i know when to walk & when to run. I've found some songs (like "here we go again' by OK GO and 'Womanizer' by Brittney Spears are at the *exact* pace i like to run to....even tho it's not really my type of music. I let my guilty pleasures come out on that mix. Shhhh don't tell :)
