My Workout Playlist

I had many requests for my workout playlist after I mentioned it in my post about exercise motivation. After e-mailing it out several times I decided to just type it out for you.

Disclaimer: Some of these contain explicit and/or questionable and/or just plain stupid lyrics. I am not a music snob when it comes to choosing music that will get me running (okay, jogging) a little faster or push harder on the elliptical machine.

It’s a long list, but I like to be surprised and not hear the same 15-20 songs each workout, so I set it to shuffle.

What am I missing? What are some of your favorite songs to get your heart pumping and get you to go another mile or another five minutes?



  1. […] 3. Distract yourself. Some people love to run in the quiet. I’m not one of those people. I tried TV shows at the gym, but I need fast-paced music to keep my feet moving and keep me from thinking about how long I have to go before I can quit jogging already. It’s different for everyone, but most people I know who jog for fun tell me they listen to music, as well. Find what moves you (ha ha) and bring it with you to make the time go faster. Some of my recent adds to my playlist were Turn Me On by David Guetta and We Found Love by Rihanna, but I’m realizing I haven’t added anything new since January. Time to visit iTunes! See, another opportunity to shop. If you want my entire playlist e-mailed to you, contact me at and I’ll send it to you for some ideas. Edited – after getting many requests, I added a post with my playlist! […]

  2. […] not appropriate for my nine year old son. We won’t even get into some of the dirtier songs on my workout playlist – even some that don’t, at first, seem bad, on closer listening were full of references […]
