    Usually the gym has music playing, and considering that my iTunes has yet to allow me to upload music to my new phone... I'm stuck with whatever the gym is playing. However, I go with my friend since we both got memberships and we just talk while we're on the elliptical/treadmill/sit-up machine/etc.

    I'm no help in the music department, but maybe find a friend to go with? I know that having a friend there helps motivate me a bit more since we like competing a little bit with sit-ups and how long we can last on the treadmill.

    Myself whining about how it's 'not fair that I have to do this' is probably not the correct answer.

    Since I accidentally deleted my work out playlist on my phone and computer (um... oops) and haven't finished getting it back again, I've been listening to my Glitch Mob Pandora station. I have Pretty Lights, Daft Punk, DeadMau5, and Alt-J on there, too.

    Beanie, we have super similar tastes in music. It's sort of creepy. There were a bunch on there I'd forgotten though, thank you!

    Y'all just helped me a lot make my running playlist.
    My only problem... I tend to do the "dance while running" exercise. You get honks, waves, and hollars from passing cars. Its awesome lol.

    Eta: Everyone should add No Diggity by Blackstreet. Seriously my new favorite song.

    I don't really have a playlist. I do the turbo jam workout videos so music is already included but some of the songs on there are "mama said knock you out" and "goodies" lol and there is an MJ one too but I can't think of it at this moment :)

    When we get our eliptical my workouts will coincide with my "shows" lol like pretty little liars.
