What music motivates you guys?
There is actually an art to picking music to work out by. The music should flow with the workout. You don't want it to be too fast otherwise you over work and can injure yourself, and at the same time you don't want it so slow that you aren't working to your ability. In addition to that you want the music to be slower to start during the warm up, a bit boppier during the work out and slowing down again towards the end during the cool down.
I had no idea that all music wasn't created equal when it comes to working out, but a friend of mine owns her own aerobics business and she explained the importance of music.
I love heavy metal music, but unfortunately that's not really a good genre to work out with, LOL
