Favourite music to exercise to? Share and share alike!

I teach 3-5 group exercise classes a week. Always to music. It invigorates and energizes me. And of course, aids my choreography and cueing 😉

My favourite music to exercise to? Gaga, Kanye, Rhianna, Katy Perry, Will I Am, Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake and Usher, to name a few. I’m a ‘pop’ girl; top 40 for the win.

  3. Several years ago I quit listening to music while I exercise. I began listening to books and lectures instead. I found that this not only helped me to absorb those books and lectures better, but it promoted a higher level of concentration with my strength training and my cardio.

    I did run an entire marathon once, listening to a single song in a continual loop; Pistol Grip Pump by Rage Against The Machine.

    • Very interesting… I wonder if you also learn and remember the things you’re listening to better as well?

  4. I almost always listen to Breaking Benjamin on Pandora. I absolutely love the station and even though it’s a little bit “dude music” style, it really gets me going!

  6. After seeing your playlist I have to totally revamp my opinions. Kanye, Spears? Nooooooooo! I have to put on some 80s music now just to get those out of my head!
