To tell you the truth, I’m not the best at seeking out new songs. I either have to ask friends what’s cool or check out sites rating the top tunes of the week. Luckily, this time, I got a personal email from Chris over at RunHundred asking me to share this playlist with you guys. I was surprised to hear from him because I had already subscribed to their free newsletter a couple months ago!

If you don’t know what RunHundred is, they are basically a website that compiles the best workout songs and emails out what’s hot that week. I love that the BPM (beats per minute) are posted right next to it so that you know whether it’s a fast or slow song.

Musical motivation is sooooo essential to a good, tough workout.

If you want to hear a snippet of these songs, you can go here or just youtube it. That’s what I do!

What songs are on your playlist this month? Tell me! I need more inspiration!

Last Months Top 10 Workout Song (October)

Who says you can’t stay fit in the fall? Check out October’s top 10 workout songs. Props to RunHundred, Check them out!


The Top 10 Workout Songs For October

Fort Wayne, IN – October 20, 2011 – This month’s list brings two questions to mind:  

#1.  For how many consecutive months will David Guetta turn up in these top 10 lists?  (His new track with Usher made the cut–and he just barely missed making it again with his recent Nicki Minaj collaboration).  

#2.  Will Calvin Harris, Benny Benassi or Afrojack be the one that unseats him?  (All three are making their second appearances on the charts this month.  And, like Guetta, each has begun being billed as the artist on his tracks–rather than being credited as the producer/remixer, which was the case a couple years ago.)

This month’s top 10 is rounded out by a new track from LMFAO, a Britney remix, and a song by Young The Giant–brought most folks’ attention by the band’s surprise inclusion on this year's MTV Video Music Awards

Here’s the full list, according to votes placed on the web’s most popular work out music blog Run Hundred.


Rihanna & Calvin Harris - We Found Love - 128 BPM

Dev - In The Dark - 125 BPM

Afrojack & Eva Simons - Take Over Control - 128 BPM

LMFAO - Sexy And I Know It - 129 BPM

Chris Brown & Benny Benassi - Beautiful People - 129 BPM

Shortee & Faust - Friday Night Special - 133 BPM

Kelly Rowland & Lil Wayne - Motivation (Rebel Rock Remix) - 130 BPM

Britney Spears - I Wanna Go (Oliver Remix) - 129 BPM

Young The Giant - My Body - 130 BPM

David Guetta & Usher - Without You - 128 BPM

Staying a head of the game.
————————————————–
We had a squad of 20 show up tonight that featured the Valley runners crew, five new bloods, two representing from Night Terrors Toronto and a baby Scarlet in a pear tree. Every single person opted for the 6-mile long run (first time) and altogether we blazed through WeHo as one unit.

Added bonus, I met my 100 miles in January goal tonight (another first) and I still have 10 days left. Let’s see how many more I can stack before months end. (Album link in bio)

Cool website for finding new workout music

For those of you out there who are group exercise instructors and junkies, especially the cardio ones (Turbo Kickboxing, Zumba anyone?), you’d know all about BPM or beats per minute. It’s like a metronome that will dictate your every move in class.

Oh no the flashbacks…the horrors of piano practice…STOP! STOP IT!! Side note: Who else here was forced to play piano? It’s a common Asian tradition.

My friend Chris who happens to be the resident workout music EXPERT for Marie Claire Magazine has a whole website dedicated to cool songs that you can listen to. You can sort by things like source, tempo, genre, and decade. See it here.

Really good way to find new music. As silly as this sounds, I am NOT a good music picker! I find it hard to browse new songs so I call my sister and ask her what’s in instead :P

Sometimes I use Pandora or Last.fm to TRY to find new music. Most of the time I look at what you guys tell me on Facebook

Anyway, Chris is offering a REALLY GOOD DEAL (and you guys know I love deals) for us peeps in the Blogilates Community and I wanted to share it with you guys! Esp. those of you who are music freaks!

Here’s the deal:

*3 Hours Of Continuous Mixes – Download free 60 minute mixes from three of his favorite DJs.

*2 BPM Calculators – Links to Chris’ two favorite, free tools for finding a song’s beats per minute.

*Chris’ 10 Favorite Remixes – Download–for free–ten of the best remixes he’s heard this year.

*Ideal BPM Finder – 36 downloadable audio files–spanning 75-180 BPM–which you can use to find your ideal workout tempo.

*AND a CD with cool songs from indie bands and DJs from all diff genres.

He’s only charging 10 bucks with free shipping. You can click here to read more. 

Whether or not you decide to buy the music bundle, I encourage you to check out Runhundred.com for a good way to listen to brand new workout songs every week.

January Workout Playlist

I haven’t done a workout playlist recently, so I’m coming out today with a larger playlist for this installment.  With my upcoming races, I really needed some new music, so I set aside some time and money to find some new tunes.  After playing around on iTunes and  Runhundred, I discover a few new jams that I think you’re gonna like.  Take a listen and let me know what you think in the comments.
