View Full Version : Good exercise music?

Im desperately in need of some good energy pumping music lol My brain just has been so blank because of all the stress going on right now. I could really use help if you all can give me a good dance song or two to get myself back into dancing as my second main exercise. I just do walking right now, and dancing is the only other choice that I actually enjoy doing lol

would really appreciate it :D

Fun tunes are key! I could never make it through my longer runs without good music. Here's what hauls me up the hills:

Let's Get It Started - Black Eyed Peas
Don't Phunk With My Heart - Black Eyed Peas
Love Shack - B52's
Welcome to the Jungle - Guns 'N Roses (how embarrassing!)
Pour Some Sugar on Me - Def Leppard (see above)

Okay...so they're kinda all over the place. :lol3: But they definitely get the blood flowing and keep me moving.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

cheers! :hat:

Since I'm a big Britney Spears fan, any of her fast paced music helps me get my butt moving!! But, I'd definately say aside from that any of the 80s funk. Oh man.. that is fun music and it's fun to exercise to!

I know it sounds weird, but my daughter loves My Chemical Romance and after hearing it for awhile, it grew on me. All of the songs except for maybe one are perfect for working out. Just a great driving beat.

This is definitely in the rock category, but that's what I listen to. :)

I would never admit this to my friends or family but I've got eminem hiding in my cd player :o

His rage and beat really get me moving:devil:

I alternate between him and Paula Cole LOL what a combo 'eh?

I listen to anything loud and fast - Offspring, Green Day, Minor Threat, Metallica, some of the faster stuff from Enrique Iglesias, Ozomatli, Santana, Yeah (Usher), and of course - my favorite of all time Jackie Greene (a local folk/blues talent from Northern California).

I love to listen to all that booty music to get pumped. You know.. Uncle Luke & 95 South.. old school!

Rob Thomas' " This is how a heart breaks " is awesome, especially on the elliptical.

I think anything by the Black Eyed Peas is perfect! Also the new Shakira cd!!

I have to second Green Day! I also really like 90s dance music for exercise - I got a great double CD "The Best of Dance Mix USA" from I think Walmart and it's great.

Also a great one for those of us with kids is the soundtrack for Madagascar - I like to move it, move it! And it has the theme song from Hawaii 5-0 which is fun, too.

There are also some good ones on the Blue Crush soundtrack.

What a great thread--I love seeing what other people listen to!

I've got some of these loaded on my mp3 player:

The Prodigy "Breathe," Beyonce "Crazy in Love," Britney Spears "Toxic," Kelis "Milkshake" (corny, I know!), Kanye West "Goldigger," Outkast "B.O.B." Roots "The Seed," The Killers "Mr. Brightside."

If you're looking for more suggestions, I found some of my workout music at this site (http://www.fiql.com)--they have people's playlists by different categories, and I found a lot of ideas under the exercise category.
