Music to Sweat to: Your Workout Playlist

Posted By Teri Ann Krefting On February 1, 2012 @ 10:53 am In Fitness | 4 Comments

Woman working out listening to music [1]The main thing that really fires me up for fitness [2] is a superior song playlist. If I’m planning a long run [3] or a hard workout at the gym [4], great songs make the time fly by and make workouts much more enjoyable. And music tempo is perfect for pacing yourself — slower songs to warm up and cool down, and pumping rhythms to keep the intensity up [5] in between.

Here are my top 10 workout tunes right now — share yours in the comments section below!

1. “Give Me Everything (Tonight)” — Pitbull feat. Ne-Yo

2. “ET” — Katy Perry feat. Kanye West

3. “Fool in the Rain” — Led Zeppelin

4. “Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard” — Paul Simon

5. “Down On Me” — Jeremih feat. 50 Cent

6. “Price Tag” — Jessie J feat. B.o.B.

7. “This Too Shall Pass” — OK Go

8. “I Will Survive” — Cake
