What gets me going on the elliptical machine is listening to awesome songs in my iPod. I get all pumped up listening to Dance/Techno remixes and even to Hillsong, Hilary Duff (don't smirk!), The Cure and U2. I looove Zumba and the African Salsa music--I just wish I can dance gracefully because I look pretty challenged when I'm trying to do the Merengue work out. ;-)
One song that really puts me into a trance is "Heaven" by DJ Sammy & Yanou. When it's time to cool down, I like listening to Coldplay, Sarah Brightman, Buddha Bar music and any classical music. Have you guys heard of Vitamin String Quartet? They are simply AMAZING!!
I have been listening to the same playlist since this Spring ;-) I think I need to update my playlist. Does anyone have any suggestions on great workout songs?? Thanks :)
