Workout Songs

Two of my favorite bloggers, Erin from Blue-Eyed Bride and Megan from Tales of the Trees, both posted about their new workout programs. They listed some of their favorite songs to workout to and asked for suggestions. I started to respond with suggestions, but it got long so I thought I'd make my own post, lol.

I need two very different styles of music when I'm working out... one for Elliptical and one for Treadmill. And, I've tried playlists.... they don't work. Something about the act of scrolling helps me get through it, lol. I also have to have a ton of variety.... just can't listen to the same songs every day.

What is your favorite workout music? I'm always looking for new stuff (another reason I love SYTYCD... they always have great new music).

Here are some of my favorite choices when I'm on the elliptical....

  • Ain't Nothin Wrong With That - Robert Randolph
  • All-American Girl - Carrie Underwood
  • Better Life - Keith Urban
  • Cupid Shuffle
