I run quite a bit, so I listen to a lot of upbeat, pop-type music...Robin Thicke, Justin Timberlake, Jessie J, Maroon 5 and Macklemore, to name a few recent favorites on my playlist!

I just listen to the music I have on my iPod. I like to listen to alternative rock. I pick upbeat happy songs and band like Vampire Weekend, Passion Pit, The Black Keys, MGMT.

I love pandoras "work out" station. It has the best selection for intense work outs with songs that keep you motivated and pumped up! I listen to it from my computer while inside or my iPhone while running outside. Plus if I get tired with that station I can always change it easily.

I seem to be a rarity, but I really don't like listening to music when I am exercising. I like to focus on the training its self.

I love to walk. I do it at various paces. When I really go all out and walk as vigorously as I can, I like and ipod with fast, hard-hitting music.
I keep 3 ipods with different kinds of music on them for the different paces of walking I keep. Each is loaders with music with different tempos and textures that sort of mesh with what kind of walking I am doing.

The only exercise where I listen to music is lifting and then it is Five Finger Death Punch, Rammstein, Disturbed, Rage Against the Machine, 3 different versions of Kick out the Jams, and if I'm training for a national record - "I'm Bad, I'm Nationwide" by ZZ Top. <grin>

I usually listen to techno when I go running or cycling solo. Other sports I never listen to music.
On my bike I listen to the OST cd of Berlin Calling by Paul Kalkbrenner.
When biking I listen to any other Techno/minimal/deephouse music. It helps you keep an even speed.

I have a very varied playlist... but Rudimental and Calvin Harris are faves... Old school Crazytown is a regular feature too at the moment.

Rock/Hard Rock ... something like Godsmack, (when working with weights or boxing) boxing

Disco (hahaha) or I don't know .. something upbeat when I'm running (even 70's or 80's music).

Country, Indie, ... mixing it up with some alternative when walking.

Mellow when stretching and such


Mine is similar to this :) Except..
Rock/Hard Rock and Dubstep when working out with weights or running
Dance/pop/hiphop when running... Im not into disco

For Cardio/Running I generally don't listen to anything. With music, I tend to get lazy and let the intensity of the music dictate the workout. Without music, I find I am more in control of my breathing and pace.

As for strength training, a lot of post-rock (Mogwai, Explosions in the Sky, Do Make Say Think, godspeed you! black emperor)

Tonight's playlist was a bit of Calvin Harris, Rudimental and Far East movement.

I like dance music for running though. It helps with the rhythm.

Unfortunately my gym dictates the music, which isn't always to my taste. I do have a compilation of upbeat music on my Ipod I dance around the house to... if I'm alone... can't stand being laughed at Embarassed

I listen to a lot of different stuff. If it has a good beat then I'm all good. I have some inspirational songs that always boost my spirit as well. Right now I'm listening to a couple Eminem songs, Rhiana has some good ones... ect.

Check out my first story "I Won't Give Up"! It's totally amazeballs...

Normally I hate EDM, but for working out it really pumps me up. 8track.com have a few awesome mixes e.g"life is a party" which are awesome to work out to.
