Question of the Week: Workout Music?

By Laura Moncur @ 5:00 am — Filed under:

There are some songs that make my body want to move even when I’m lying like a lump on the couch. They are songs that I put on my iPod so I’ll have an easy run every time.

Do you listen to music while you workout?

What songs are your favorite for exercise right now?

What songs were your favorite workout songs in the past?

What do you use to get you motivated to exercise besides music?

Only a LadI remember I used to have an Oingo Boingo tape called Only a Lad that I listened to so often that the tape eventually broke. It was the music that I danced to over and over. I must have lost a 100 pounds to that tape (the same 10 pounds 10 times, probably). Even now, hearing Danny Elfman’s voice makes me want to exercise. What does that for you?

The Question of the Week is meant to be an Inner Workout for you. Find some time during the week and allow yourself to write the answers to the questions posted. You can write them on paper, on a word processor or here in the comments section. Whatever works for you as long as you do it.

Keep writing until you find out something about yourself that you didn’t know before. I’ve also heard that it works to keep writing until you cry, but that doesn’t really work for me. Whatever works for you. Just keep writing until it feels right.

    Oh, wow, this brought back something I haven’t thought of in a long time…the summer before I left for college, I joined a gym, and I listened to one U2 tape over and over. (Achtung Baby, IIRC.) I used it again in college when I used the campus gym. Now it conjurs up stairmasters, etc. instantly. Hmmmm. Maybe I should put it onto my music player phone…assuming I have a CD of it somewhere….

    I work out to music because I get in the zone better that way and encourage all the people I train to workout to music.
