I was just wondering which songs really get you motivated into exercising. I would really love some suggestions as I'm having trouble finding some.

Currently "I'm sexy and I know it" is pretty good for me and Lady Gaga songs.

I listen to Marilyn Manson for my 45 minute brisk walks. He's so damn angry, and he pushes me and pushes me. Then when I finally get home gasping and heaving, I break his stupid angry CD, and smash the player to the floor and laugh.
Muahahaha!!

Party Rock Anthem seems to work for me. When I'm on my eliptical and start to feel like I can't go any further.....I just play that song and it instantly gets me moving!!

I'm a child of the 70s and 80s I'm afraid to say ...

My favourites to get me going ...

Holding Out for Hero - Bonnie Tyler
House is Rockin' - Stevie Ray Vaughan
Some Girls - Racey
C'm On Feel the Noize - Quiet Riot
We Didn't start the Fire - Billy Joel

Also like the Killers for working out ..

My most embarassing song on my current workout list is:

I love you like a lovesong - Selena Gomez ...though it just got on there by mistake from my daughters collection :) ... I haven't taken it off though ...

I like a load of music, mainly rock, some from the 80's some more modern. I like Rammstein and Oomph but only a few of there songs would get me motivated, or I'd only use them for walking. I've recent'y gotten into more pop music which motivates me more.

There's a ton of great ones here, but right now my favorite is Weightless by All Time Low. The lyrics really inspire me. :)

This is my current workout playlist. It's a mix of high tempo music, rap, motivational songs, and angry songs. I like a good mixture to sort through - angry songs for the intense parts of my workout, motivational songs for when I feel like giving up, and rap/pop for in-between!

Because I'm pretty much just waiting for water to boil, I will even color-code them!

High Tempo ** Motivational ** Rap ** Angry/Intense Songs

One Republic - Marchin' On
Linkin Park & Jay-Z - Numb/Encore (also, could be sort of angry, I guess...)
Black Eyed Peas - Let's Get It Started
Kittycat Dolls - When I Grow Up
Melissa Etheridge - I Run For Life
30 Seconds to Mars - Kings & Queens
30 Seconds to Mars - This is War
Nickelback - Gotta Be Somebody
Missy Elliott - Touch It (Remix with Busta Rhymes and other various artists)
Missy Elliott - Lose Control
Kanye West - Monster
One Republic - Good Life
Chris Brown - Look At Me Now
Kanye West - The New Workout Plan
Taking Back Sunday - MakeDamnSure

P.s. It's not the "Kittycat Dolls" - Apparently you can't say the P word on here even when referring to a cat. ;)
