Best Workout Music

Having the best workout music is essential to having a kick butt fat burning session. I absolutely believe that the music can either make or break a workout. There are some songs that are just music to my feet and incredibly motivating for those long runs. I also have certain songs that get my muscles all fired up when I’m hitting the weights. Then there are other songs that are absolutely perfect for climbing a monstrous hill in spinning class.

For this reason, I put a ton of effort into the tunes that go into my IPOD. According to my husband, I spend way too much time searching all over iTunes for the best workout music to fit each part of my training. So, I am paying it forward with hopes of saving you the time and effort. I hope you will too. If you have a playlist that your feet can’t get enough of, scroll down and share (coming soon). I am also working on giving you the ability to link directly to the song on iTunes to purchase it. Talk about a time saver!
