For most people, music is the most important tool to a great workout. Music helps the time pass and contributes to an enjoyable experience and can even enhance your workout.
Here are some tips to picking that perfect playlist for peak performance.
First, Take Our Word For It
Here are some of our top picks for workout songs, tried and true for you.
Some Websites Offer Their Own Suggestions

If you are looking for something a little different from the pop tunes, try The Rocky Balboa Metal Montage Workout, The Classical Strongman’s Guide To Awesome Abs or the Jazzercise: Big-Band Buns Of Brass from Sweatin’ to NPR: Workout Mix

Finally, Create Your Own Playlist
Jogtunes.com is a free service helps you pick your songs by choosing your bpm or actually your steps per minute, then your preferred genre and voila you have song suggestions that match the intensity of your workout.
Remember, jogging or bicycling outdoors while wearing headphones and blasting that music is very dangerous as it drowns out critical traffic noise that could be alerting you to impending doom, but the only thing dangerous about working out indoors with us is going to be that smokin’ hot bod-so rock on!
