I realized one of the reasons I wasn't ever into workout videos (besides being an out of shape, uncoordinated klutz) was the crappy, canned music a lot of them use (I know Richard Simmons uses decent music, but there's no instruction for the moves). I love music, and hate listening to "muzak." It does not motivate me.
I put on one of my favorite upbeat cds-Joan Osborne-Righteous Love (anyone else here like her?) It made such a huge difference. I felt much more energized and into the workout than I ever have.
No offense to Leslie Sansone, but the music in the workout stinks. I just turned the volume down, and played my own music.
It was great
If anyone has suggestions for other music, please share.
