What sort of things do you listen to when you're lifting, running or any other activity? Does your class instructor put on anything that is particularly motivating?

I think my favourite is definitely Rihanna - Where Have You Been at the moment. My zumba instructor uses it and I'm not a big fan of Rihanna!

My first start of song is R U Mine by The Arctic Monkeys, and then things like P.O.D, Panic! At The Disco, Fall Out Boy, Paramore, The Hives..

SO mostly Rock, Heavy Metal, Rap and some Dubstep! :)

Ahhh I love P.O.D. I need a new playlist and I thought this would be a good idea to find some new stuff. I don't know why I never added P.O.D before..! Although I can't find any of Paramore!

I usually use Pandora and work out to the Dance Cardio, 80s Cardio, or the hard rock stations. I used to listen to my own music, and would make playlists, but then the playlists would get old and I didn't want to get sick of my music after playing them so much at the gym. Haha

I definitely need something fast with a good rhythm to work out to.

My Mp3 player contains nothing but metal. Mostly thrash and power metal. Nothing motivates me more than hearing a song about going to battle like a true viking hurr hurr

I'm the same. I realise my playlist doesn't last an hour so it starts repeating itself and it's like SHUT UP!!! I need more music. :( Radio stations sound good, but the adverts put me off...

I can see some things like Ensiferum, Turisas and Korpiklaanii being pretty good for a workout...

I like to listen to SCOOTER - the beat is fantastic, and works well when I'm on my elliptical trainer, especially 'Jumpin all over the world'

It's really good music to sing along to and makes me aim to do that little bit more just to finish a song - if you know what I mean?

weirdly enough I've been listening to the harry potter audiobooks :P the beat isn't great ofcourse (lol) but I get so focussed on the story that I'm not paying as much attention to how tired I'm getting so I usually run a lot farther/longer when I'm listening to these. (also the "my route is done but the chapter is still 5 more minutes" makes you run for 5 more minutes :P)

I think that is fair! I find the television is fun when you're using an exercise bike, I like watching 'Gavin and Stacey' while on it. Unfortunately I don't own this bike, and even if I did, I still need to get a proper aerial for my TV. :( But I can see where you're coming from!

Eye of the Tiger from Rocky is a great one! :) Pink as well, Robyn, Guns and Roses, Scooter*, Ke$ha..... Anything with a good beat.

* Scooter - actually, I haven't been working out to Scooter but I WILL be - one of my MFP pals this morning posted a Scooter link and I am forever grateful to him! :)

Love working out to Zumba tracks, they make me smile. One of my favourites is Pitbull, I know you want me.

I like to mix it up. Groove Metal(Pantera, Exhorder), East Coast Rap(NAS, Notorious B.I.G.), Country(Aaron Watson, Justin Moore)
November 20, 2012 4:39 AM
Mine is a big mix. Linkin Park, Eminem Lose yourself is good for running, Last Resort by Pap Roach, Rihanna, Foo fighters, Addicted to Bass song always gets me going, as does Fall Out Boy - This ain't a scene as the verses are quite slow, chorus' really fast, so on a elliptical machine you end up proper going for it during the chorus lol. Also have some big randoms - Kate Bush, Running up that hill, Chop Suey - System of a Down, Thats not my name - Ting Tings, Even a bit of Toxic, Britney as it's good to run too lol. Mainly rock though.
November 20, 2012 4:40 AM
This is why I'm hot!! haha jk
November 20, 2012 4:41 AM
Black Sabbath, Metallica, Godsmack, Iron Maiden and more from that genre. They really help me get through a workout.

My favorites are DMX and Eminem. But, honestly, I listen to just about anything when working out. My playlist runs from rap to opera and everything in between. happy

When I'm dancing, my favorite is Shakira.

^^This! Add some Guns and Roses, Pantera, Danzig, and Jimi Hendrix you've basically got my workout playlist. Start every playlist with "Welcome to the Jungle"...it just sets the tone for weight day happy
