I prefer having music to workout to.

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.

If I don't have music, I can hardly get myself to move. It really motivates me.

I find that itunes has a pretty large selection of free mix podcasts if you like electronic music. I prefer to listen to Paul Oakenfold's weekly podcast, it's usually the right bpm for a brisk walk.

Gangnam Style definitely should be on this list.

Some of my favorite workout songs are "Don't Stop Me Now" by Queen, "Dancing Queen" by ABBA, "Who Do You Think You Are?" by Spice Girls and "Move Along" by All-American Rejects.

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

I so agree. I could not work out if it was not to music!

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 :)
