For pilates I choose slower more relaxed tunes, a bit of trip hop and some slower rock music.
For running I have just discovered what I really like is psy-trance. It's got that hard/dark edge. I had no idea that was the genre it was called before yesterday.
I had been using Podrunner Intervals podcasts and looked up some of the tracks DJ Steveboy uses and a lot of them are psychedelic-trance. It really helps me to get in (and stay in) the zone. I like that quite often there are no vocals (sometimes, depending on what they are, they can be a distraction and I get bored of the song too quickly).
For strength training I don't have any music going, I just started Chalean Extreme so it's just whatever's playing in the workout music background.
