    Music is a really important part of my workout. I'm always interested in what people are listening to while working out. I listen to all kinds of music while at the gym (the piped in music is usually terrible). Right now I am listening to lots of Indie Brit Rock like The Long Blondes. They send me into a zone.

    What are you listening to?

    LOL. Yesterday I got a new iPod nano. It automatically loads a random selection from my library, and plays it randomly. What can I say, it's... RANDOM. Today's workout playlist included VanHalen, Alan Parsons, Dvorak, Roy Orbison, Aaron Copeland, Mojo Nixon...

    I guess I'll have to put some effort into setting up some playlists.

    I got new iPod Nano, too, and had the exact same experience. In the same half hour cardio session I believe I heard "The Humpty Dance", "Kung Fu Fighting", "Roller Skating Mate", "No Parking on the Dance Floor" and "Fergalicious".

    I don't have an Ipod I just use the cd player. New additions to the playlist are: Jerry Lee Lewis' new cd, Linda Ronstadt, Janis Martin, old ELvis, Cave Catt Sammy, Olivia Newton-John, Candye Kane, some local rockabilly bands.

    This could be dangerous LOL...not a teeny bopper or anything close, but...Justin Timberlake and JC Chasez have some good music out right now. Also listen to some vintage New Order, EBTG and newer Madonna among lots of others. iPod nano's the best!

    As a group fitness/kickbox instructor I spend too much time looking for hi-energy (continuous) mix music. I find many compilations have good sets of 5-6 hot songs and then peter out...

    I appreciate all suggestions for great start-to-finish remix compilations.

    Thanks men.

    Hey PHL,
    if you're looking for high-energy, check out Podrunner's FREE podcasts on iTunes. He mixes around 1hr podcasts and has them listed under their bpm, so you can choose how hard you want to work out. I also love Bravehound, a Canadian bloke who posts his mixes on his blog, bravehound.com. Album-wise, if you've never heard of Faithless, find their album "Outrospective", it is an intense album, with some really amazing dance songs.
    Hope this helps!

    I usually have high energy dance, techno music most of the time. I need the fast, thumping beat to keep me psychologically "up there" and moving to the beat.
    Right now I have stuff like Safri Duo, Britney Spears (dance remix), Lucas Prada, Milky, Mynt, Sin Plomo and Real McCoy (retro dance).
    The odd time I will Podcast a GLBT radio talk show for treadmill or bike cardio.

    All I do is yoga, climbing, and biking... I tried listening to music while biking a few times, but I just tune it out. It's weird, it did nothing for me but bug me when the earphones would slip or whatever.

    Yoga's usually quiet, but at the climbing gym the other day they had on a Sigur Ros album, (), and it was awesome to practice to.

    I climb with no music, if in my backyard or outside, or to the whim of the guy working the desk at the climbing gym, which ranges from old Underworld to Post-Rock to Industrial to Classic Rock to Pink Floyd to Country... ha!

    I got a ipod nano. I find myself listening to more dance/techno.(Abercrombie) type music while doing cardio. Stuff with a fast beat and heavy bass always gets me going. While lifting I enjoy the top hits... Justin Timberlake, Nelly Furtado, Jay-z, The Fray... I have a wide variety when it comes to music.

    I like listening to House Music when lifting waits (not Vocal House). When it comes to running, which I used to do, I listen to what's playing at the gym, coz I coulnd't find music that would match my rythm as I run.. I started swimming now for cardio, tho..

    Krabbylyon...careful...I bet you look hot in your little speedo, but iPods do not work when they get wet. I know that from firsthand knowledge. :-)

    I have strange taste in music, so don't laugh. For at least the last 6 months at the gym, I've been listening to Pink Lady, a Japanese Pop group from the 70's-80's. Also DON 2006, the soundtrack from the remake of a legendary Bollywood movie. Both are in foreign languages, but it is high energy dance music, and when my iPod is cranked at full volume, it makes my muscles smile.

    I tend to listen to a variety of music. I can either train hardcore with music such as the battle themes to the Devil May Cry video game series, or practice soft and graceful with the works of tan dun. I also believe music and martial arts have the same principle, finding the right tone/technique that makes the work of art beautiful. And its also almost like dancing, practicing movements and footwork and perfecting them.
