Go through all the songs you have on your computer and pick out ones that make you want to lipsync and dance around the room (since they're so much fun). Make a playlist containing those songs and play those while you workout. Don't stop there, keep that list up to date so you don't get bored.
Now if you wanna get technical about it, you could download a shareware program like beatunes and have it analyze your music so you can add in the BPM (beats per minute) per song. Using that, I made a more precise list of song I love and have a high BPM. Mine ranges from 110-210 BPM.

Hellow Sparkies! I know we are in the 21st century of technology with Ipods and MP3 players, but for those of us who workout to music, and don't own these things.... Head on over to playlist.com and create your own workout playlist. IT"S FREE! I hook mine up to computer speakers (bass included) and jam out while doing Tae-bo. :)
When I have a hard time starting tasks I dislike, I put on motivational music. I created a playlist in Windows Media Player. The playlist acts as motivation and a time clock. When the music is off, I'm done. Generally this will get me so motivated I can keep working at tasks I dislike.
