26 Workout Songs to Keep You Going

Make workouts fun with these songs!

It is a huge sense of accomplishment to commit to an exercise routine and stick with it. Diligence is rewarded with the obvious -a healthy body mind and spirit, and maybe a smaller dress size or flatter stomach if you have been really good. A stumbling block of staying motivated can be boredom. I listen to my iPod when running and working out so frequently that I simply get sick of my songs. I am always on the hunt for new music, and am constantly downloading to my playlist. The last post I wrote included 75 of my favorites, but I have added to that list, and am excited to share my new finds. Some are top 40, but when I exhausted the current options I started to reminisce about old favorites. I hope you like them!

  3. I recently found out that Pandora has a "workout" station and a "pop and hip hop power workout" radio options. Just type workout into the artist, genre, composer section. They play some decent songs.
