What's The Best Workout Music?


Hey, what's up, hello—help me, please. There might be over 1.5 billion playlists on Spotify, but that doesn't stop me from listening to the same 50 songs over and over again. Actually, it's something of a theme here at ITG HQ. I'm not the only one in the office who's copped to questionable taste when it comes to music. But that doesn't mean I don't want to improve.

I actually don't notice my pigeonholed taste that much—I fill subway rides with podcasts and work days with conversation. But at the gym, it's pretty hard to avoid my limited palette. I like Robyn, Gwen Stefani, T.I., and for some reason I have a real soft spot for the FIFA World Cup theme song from 2010....maybe because that's around the last time I updated iTunes. Kidding, sort of.

The bottom line is I need all the help I can get. Funnily enough, I have no problem getting to the gym, but keeping myself there for longer than 10 crunches and 20 minutes on the elliptical is another story, and better music would probably help. So...drumroll...leave your workout playlist suggestions below.
