I’m very honoured and pleased to receive an email from a reader “Chris”, by way of a follow up from a previous post The Biggest Loser. He runs the web’s largest workout music database and has put together a list of the current top 10 songs for working out, based on user feedback, and I thought “Wow, what an interesting idea? I wouldn’t mind chalking down these songs and information to give myself and readers that extra push to working out those flabby areas!” Trust me I haven’t exercised in awhile and I think my arms and tummy and thighs are paying for it. Urgh! But I must say R&B always gets me going, whether it’s executing those dance moves on the floor or running that extra mile.
So, I’m very excited to be writing about this – are you ready??!
The Top 10 Workout Songs For Winter 2012
San Francisco, CA – Jan 11, 2012 – Traditionally, winter is the time of year when folks find it hardest to get out and exercise. In the hopes of keeping folks motivated, readers from Run Hundred–the web’s most heavily-trafficked site for workout music–were polled regarding their favorite, current workout songs. The resulting top 10 list has a little of what you’d expect—and a little you might not. Flo Rida, who’s no stranger to this list, shows up in two recent tracks. Enrique Iglesias continues his transition from balladeer to club rocker. And Kelly Clarkson, after faltering with the first single off her new album, bounced back ferociously with the second.
As for surprises, they’re mostly entries from folks relatively new on the dance scene. Highlights include songs from Tim Berg (who remixed his own track under his Avicii moniker), Skrillex (whose collaboration with Kaskade is the first dubstep track ever the make the Top 10), and Wolfgang Gartner (who’s made the chart with a little help from the Black Eyed Peas’ Will.I.Am).
Here’s the full list:
