Tue, 29 Jan 2019 23:44:52 EST What Songs I Rebounded with today? (Spotify list) I have decided to get back to rebounding and just keep rebounding during these hot days in Kansas. I have a long (and still growing longer) "Rebounding Playlist" on my Spotify account (under MSDRPEPPER). It's got some 14 hours worth of music on it right now. <BR> <BR> So yesterday... <BR> <BR> I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles) - The Proclaimers <BR> Bamuyayaya - El Shammah Praise Team <BR> Wonder - Natalie Merchant <BR> Love's Theme - The Love Unlimited Orchestra <BR> (then skipped around - need to ... Wed, 12 Jul 2017 21:57:21 EST Class music I teach water exercise, and we recently had a big fuss (in someone else's class, fortunately!) about the music having "too much bass", which I think was a reference to a very heavy background beat. <BR> <BR> Do any of you go to group fitness classes? Do you attend/not attend based on the music played? I myself try to avoid country music. Just a personal preference, even though I know it has a good but not obsessive rhythm.

Sat, 9 Jul 2016 19:33:49 EST Any Special Holiday Workout Music? Do you like to work out to holiday music at this time of year? Do you like special exercise versions of the songs or "real" music? Sun, 20 Dec 2015 12:02:59 EST Hi from TREV in the UK. Hi all you music lovers, <BR> <BR> I have joined this group for a number of reasons but mainly as a musician and composer I consider music to be one of the most amazing things that we can have around us. I think it is great to be in an environment of like minded people in this field. <BR> <BR> Music with a beat can motivate us and get us moving more than we would otherwise consider, it can cheer us up, it can motivate us, all tasks that when we react burn up more calories aiding us eventua... Tue, 18 Mar 2014 08:31:10 EST Newbie from Tx Hi all, I'm Carrie from Houston. <BR> When I work out it depends on my mood as to what music to get going.

Tue, 9 Oct 2012 17:34:59 EST Looking for Motivation Hello everyone! My name is Erin and I have been a sparkpeople member for a while, however I never really used the resources or followed through. I am fed up with feeling bad about myself and need to make a change. I do not have the best support system around me, at least when it comes to living a healthy lifestyle, so I am hoping to meet some people that can keep me motivated and inspired and hopefully I can do the same for them.

I kicked butt at boot camp thanks to all of the support from this site, but in the 6 months since then I've slipped back into my old ways. Not good for a sailor. So I'm back. I guess I need the extra support more than I thought. :) Sat, 21 Apr 2012 11:20:49 EST Your Motivational Song of the Day! Today, while working out I worked out to the entire No Doubt album Tragic Kingdom. This whole album just gets me super pumped to do my workout! I hadn't worked out to it in awhile, so I thought today would be the perfect day! This album's back when No Doubt was in their prime! Before they went super mainstream. I'll always love 'em though! <BR> <BR> Right now though, I'm the most motivated I've ever been! I workout 6 days a week doing cardio on my home exercise bike. I've lost almost 12 lbs ... Mon, 2 Apr 2012 15:43:47 EST Your Motivational Song of the Day! The entire soundtrack to the Leo DiCaprio movie 'The Beach'.

I'm a "thirty-something" individual who recently joined this team. I'm somewhat of an audiophile and love discovering new music. One of my hobbies is collecting vinyl records.

How time flies! <BR> <BR> I was on vacation and did not take the time to stop by SparkPeople. It is hard to believe that it has been almost a month since I had logged in. <BR> <BR> On the positive side, vacations are wonderful for walking. On the high side, I walked over 13,000 steps. On the down side, my lowest day was about 500 steps. <BR> <BR> Since I have been back, I have averaged about 3,000 steps a day. Not nearly enough, to get me where I want to be.

Who motivates you do to more?? <BR> <BR> This may sound corny but my favorite singer is Neil Diamond and I could listen to his music anytime.

Looking for team input! What would be a good challenge for our team? Sun, 13 Nov 2011 00:22:56 EST Favorite app for working out? I like Noom on my android. I start it when I am beginning my workout, it plays music and announces how many minutes I have been working out. If I am walking outdoors, it will also track the number of miles and my speed. I have found the miles per hour very useful because if I am below 3.5 miles per hour it motivates me to increase my speed. The only drawback that I found is that I need to make sure my headset is fully charged. If not I will loose the earpiece part way through and I loose...

A ride in the car, a dinner at a restaurant, or a workout at the gym may seem a bit drab without a soundtrack. But there’s more to music than preference.

I have no support on the home front - can't find the words to explain, so I won't say anything. But i am looking to Spark People pages for the support to keep moving forward and get ahead on my journey!! These pages are ...

My name is LeeAnn I live in SC. I am new to this message board stuff, so here goes nothing! I am determined to lose about 50-75 lbs. I went to the dr a while back and the scale said 200 lbs, thats when I decided it has gone to far. I am working out with my treadmill and just walking around my yard. I have been doing 1 mile almost everyday. I am looking into some gyms around my area that I can join. I would love to hear some feedback that may help me along this journey! Thanks Mon, 4 Apr 2011 20:28:42 EST Hey, from Kentucky Hi Everyone, <BR> I'm so happy to have found this team. My workouts just wouldn't happen without my music. If I forget my iPod on the way to the gym, I might as well turn around and go get it...or the cardio won't happen. <BR> <BR> My favorite groups, in general, and especially for working out are: <BR> Aerosmith, Journey, Heart, Foreigner, AC/DC, Guns n' Roses, Rush <BR> <BR> I'll look forward to sharing new song ideas with all of you. Have a great day! <BR> Cindy Sun, 27 Mar 2011 10:40:36 EST Hello from Texas Hello everyone!!

I signed up almost a month ago. Although I logged in a few times I was not committed to my plan. So tonight I am taking a bold step forward. In the Fall of 2009 I lost 23 pounds. That was exciting.

And I'm looking forward to whatever help and support you can give me. Again I'm glad to be here.

I have pretty random/diverse musical tastes myself, and I love the Black Album and *ahem* Ke$ha probably a little more than is healthy, but I thought it would be fun to have a space reserved for harder rock, punk and alternative suggestions - especially since it's so tricky to find really pumping songs in these genres! <BR> <BR> So, in that spirit, I'll start things off with my al...

My name is Stephanie, and I have been attempting to lose weight for awhile but really just now kicked it into high gear for my wedding this October 1st. My fiance and I will be honeymooning in California along the beach so what better motivation could I ask for then trying to get down to wearing that cute little bikini? Lol. I don't have any fri... Wed, 12 Jan 2011 12:17:34 EST Ready to Work! I recently read the People magazine article about people losing half their weight and scanned over a paragraph talking about this website. Before that, I'd never heard of it! Now I realize what I've been missing out on! I'm in my last semester of college, anxiously awaiting results about jobs and internships. I've got to pull my life together before I get out into the real world and I think this program might be the solution. I haven't encountered problems per se due to my weight, but it's de...

I went to see the movie last night and the music combined with the visual effects was just epic in my opinion. I love Daft Punk's music anyway, so I'm biased. haha. <BR> But, the Tron Legacy Soundtrack has just become my cardio play list for the gym! I tried it out tonight, and it was awesome. <BR> Some of the songs are slower, and some are more fast-paced which works great for me, because I like to do interval cardio.

Part of my problem loosing weight, I think, is because I like myself the way I am -- but I know it's not healthy. And I'd really like to wear more interesting clothes. Fat clothes are so boring!

I have been doing great so far, but I am a teacher on summer break so I have all the time in world to track calories, workout, etc. School starts soon, and I am nervous that I won't keep this up. I plan to lose 65 pounds by next summer or sooner. I love going to zumba and it is my main cardio workout, I also am doing strengthening work... Mon, 26 Jul 2010 15:00:47 EST HI! Hi, just joined. Looking forward to meeting everyone. <BR> Jana Thu, 22 Jul 2010 01:51:16 EST This is so Me! The minute I saw this SparkTeam I thought this is so me. I've been searching for perfect running songs for years. I cruise the internet all the time getting ideas from posts like these. I have all my music broken down by BPM and I put together playlists for all kinds of different workouts. I like pretty much everything as long as the beat is right. Mon, 12 Jul 2010 11:47:24 EST Hello there! Hi, I'm Stella... and boy am I glad to find this team! I just wrote an entry on my SP blog about workout music - I was a teenager in the Nineties, so I developed an eclectic taste for music around that time: rock, hip-hop, techno, country, you name it. Right now I live in the Philippines, so I'm getting more new music here than I used to when I lived in Hawaii! I'm also seriously addicted to iTunes, especially their Free Downloads of the Week and the Celebrity Playlist Podcast. Would love to ... Sat, 22 May 2010 09:17:18 EST Electronic/ Electro/Pop and Hip-Hop Hey everyone, <BR> <BR> I thought I'd start a thread for songs that I can imagine dancing to!

Fri, 21 May 2010 02:32:24 EST Another New Member To The Team... Hi. I'm Kim. Been a member on SP since March 8th (of this year). I love music. I have to listen to music when working out .. only because it makes the time go by really fast. :) I currently have a playlist of 100 songs on my phone. I listen to everything basically.. but, dance music usually makes me work out harder. :) <BR> <BR> Have a great night and a fantastic Friday! <BR> ~Kim Thu, 13 May 2010 20:03:44 EST Heyo Hi, I'm new and love a good workout playlist.

I don't know about everyone else, but music is what gets me though my running. There is nothing like forgetting how fast or how far or how tired you are rocking out to some great music. Right now I've got a playlist of about 50 songs, but I change it up every few weeks so I don't get too bored. Wed, 10 Mar 2010 22:31:28 EST New to Spark Hey everyone. I am new to spark. Music is what gets me through my workouts. I joined the goal of recommending one song per week for the playlists...where do i add that song and where do I see that list? Thanks! Sun, 28 Feb 2010 19:00:32 EST Fast Running Playlists I have a 5K coming up and I need help! <BR> <BR> I've been struggling with finding fast running music. I'm having a tough time finding songs that have a fast tempo. <BR> <BR> Do you guys have suggestions? I like poppy, happy music. No metal. <BR> <BR> Here's a taste of my recommendations: <BR> Zero - Yeah Yeah Yeahs <BR> Single Ladies - Beyonce <BR> Satisfaction - Benny Benassi <BR> Heads Will Roll - Yeah Yeah Yeahs <BR> Goodnight, Goodnight - Hot Hot Heat <BR> My My Metrocard - Le Tigre ... Fri, 29 Jan 2010 12:50:34 EST Your Motivational Song of the Day! I thought it would be fun to have a motivational song, each day, but instead of it being the same song each day I thought a different song each day would be fun! <BR> <BR> So here we go... <BR> <BR> Today My Motivational Song of the Day was "FEARLESS" by Taylor Swift <em>224</em> Wed, 30 Dec 2009 01:34:22 EST Hi from Texas Hi my name is Net and I live in Texas. I joined the group to get and give some song ideas for my workout. My daughter usually loads up my mp3 player, but she'll be leaving for the Air Force next month so I'll have to find my own music. Thu, 24 Dec 2009 08:55:52 EST What's new? What new songs or CD's have added to your MP3 player or IPOD? Sun, 20 Dec 2009 09:28:58 EST Hi I'm new to this group Hello everyone.

I look forward to getting to know you all. <em>104</em> Sun, 1 Nov 2009 21:55:50 EST My playlist- something for all moods Hey all, this is the general playlist I keep on my MP3 player. I use this for biking (indoors), running, walking, and cardio. There's a mix of everything, from rap to dance to international music to hard rock. Music goes from the 80s to today. Most artists can be found on Rhapsody, Itunes, or other means. Sometimes I walk slow, sometimes I run angry, so the tempos are mixed too. Hope this helps. <BR> <BR> Sirsy- Revolution <BR> Republica- Ready To Go <BR> Outkast- Rosa Parks <BR> Nine ... Wed, 21 Oct 2009 17:30:10 EST Shout Out Hey I'm curly cue here. <BR> I tend to love working out, fun music psyches me up 100% more. <BR> <BR> Anything new with a great beat does it for me. Lets exchange music and burn that fat off! Tue, 20 Oct 2009 23:45:50 EST Whats your Rocker Jam? For all us rockers there is nothing like a good fast paced screaming song. Mine are songs from bands like System of a Down. First and foremost though I am a huge Metallica fan! I could workout to Metallica anytime! For those who may prefer a lighter sort of fast pace music, I recommend Blink 182 and the like! <BR> My playlist consist of all of these! I prefer rock over hip hop or rap so of course I had to set up my playlist as follows. <em>224</em> So whats your rock and roll jam? Wed, 7 Oct 2009 12:50:54 EST Love this team! Hey, everyone! So glad this team exists - I have been looking for some new music inspiration for my workouts. Music is pretty much what keeps me going when I want to just go lay down! <BR> <BR> Can't wait to read about everyone's music selections. <BR> <BR> If you're ever bored and want to read a weight loss blog, I have one over at <link> </link> Fri, 4 Sep 2009 13:50:55 EST Add your playlist... These songs are awesome and I love to listen to them during cardio, haha or just whenever.

No progress on my goals in between before and now, but I am ready. <BR> <BR> I'd love to get some new workout music to start the adventure! <BR> <BR> Jess Wed, 29 Jul 2009 22:19:49 EST Hello! Newbie here! Hi everyone, my name is Eliana, I'm 23. I LOVE music. I can't live life without it. I'm training for a 10K and I'd love to get some music suggestions to use on my playlist :) Mon, 13 Jul 2009 12:53:11 EST Songs with high BPM (Beats Per Minute) It's time to revamp my playlist again. Seems like the songs that have really been helping me through my cardio are songs with a high BPM count. What fast paced songs keep you going? <BR> <BR> <BR> Right now my playlist includes <BR> <BR> Usher - Yeah (remix) <BR> Nightcore - Dum Dadi Do <BR> Petey Pablo - Show Me The Money <BR> Tue, 7 Jul 2009 11:35:26 EST favorite songs for your workouts here are some of mine: <BR> <BR> unbelieveable by EMF <BR> jump around by house of pain <BR> Blue by 89ers & Rimini <BR> call on me by eric prydz <BR> shake it by metro station <BR> untouched by the veronicas <BR> <BR> what are some of yours?

Tue, 9 Jun 2009 12:42:23 EST Question... I bought a Golds Gym elliptical.. As I am setting it up.. I do not understand how I am supposed to play my ipod on it.. I know I am not thinking and there is probably an accessory I have to buy.. Just cant find any answers in booklet.. Sat, 30 May 2009 08:39:15 EST Fun from the "go to song" topic ... Okay I figured I wouldn't mess up the running list there with this thing. But, I did my usual google hit new tab search on Untouched by The Veronicas and the first Youtube hit is a home made video. Best way to experience new tunes at the moment without a lot of headaches if they can be found there and all that. <BR> <BR> Now you might have already decided that is not worth while. But, it's rather odd. You have your basic "chick" song, as my gay friends call it here, but, the video is yo... Wed, 27 May 2009 23:47:24 EST I've added a new song to my playlist! "I Know You Want Me" by Pitbull. <BR> <BR> Honestly, it reminds me of the music they play in Zumba, but it's SO rockin' I just can't stop moving when I hear it! <BR> <BR> Lyrics are suggestive, but clean. No bad words at all. (which these days is a minor miracle) Fri, 22 May 2009 18:20:33 EST Hi everyone ..Im new here!! Hi Im Charlotte.

Thanks guys, <em>247</em> Carmen Sat, 18 Apr 2009 13:42:02 EST Playlist Songs Name Game I wanted to try to come up with something a little different when it comes to song suggestions.

Simple songs turned into Top Hits that kept the beat comming. Hits like these made you want to go faster, reach higher and feel stronger.
