I am sort of a workout fanatic. I visit the gym nearly every day, and I work hard when I'm there. I usually do a high-intensity aerobic dance class a couple of times a week, a spin class twice a week, and a kick-boxing/hip hop class once a week. These classes all come with music -- and it's all about the beat. Loud, lively, catchy-tune kind of music. . . that makes you want to work harder, jump higher, and just ignore the pain.
That's what workout music should do: Inspire . . . keep you moving. . . and dull the senses!
I have a workout playlist on my iPod -- songs I can listen to when I'm working out without a built-in soundtrack provided by a class.
What are my 10 Favorite Workout Songs? Let's just look to my playlist. . .
1. Song 2 -- by Blur
2. Walk This Way -- Aerosmith
3. Fighter -- Christina Aguilera
