My Workout Soundtrack

I work the best with music. It helps me block out noises of my domestic surroundings and helps me stay focused on the workout and not what's on Oprah. What might surprise some of you is what I like to listen to. I usually turn on Pandora and take whatever it gives me, but through my journey I have found some favorites. I've put together a list of some of my faves.
In no particular order:

1. Get Your Freak On-Missy Elliot (I recommend the radio version...not quite as crass)
2. Push It-Salt N Pepa (this one is a must have)
3. That's Not My Name-The Ting Tings (I also really like Shut Up and Let Me Go)
4. Shake It-Metro Station (This one is fun for cardio)
5. Girls-The Beastie Boys (duh!)
6. The Way You Move-Outkast (again, radio version is optimal)
7. Magic-B.o.B (this is just a fun song!)
8. Renegades of Funk-Rage Against the Machine (a little bit off the beaten path, but perfect)
9. It's Trickey-Run DMC (hello, who doesn't love this song?)
10. Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger-Daft Punk (they probably wrote this song for work outs)

What do you like to listen to when working out?


  1. (I prefer clean versions - but focus on the beat)
    California Gurls
    We Are Who We Are
    Raise Your Glass
    DJ Got Us Fallin in Love
    Just Dance
    are a few

    and I've got my favorites fromt he 80's too!

    Started running almost a year ago and I HAVE to listen to music! But it's been the best thing ever. Still can't believe I can run. When I hit 1 mile straight - it blew my mind :-)
