Gym Mix Du Jour 8.14.10

Hi All,

Recently I have been on a major healthy lifestyle makeover.

I have always been really healthy but I decided it was time to seriously tone up and get in the best shape of my life. I joined Equinox and I have been making gym mixes to motivate me. A lot of people have asked me what is on my gym list, So I have decided to share with you through a series of screen shots. Click the screen shots to make them larger.

These are the songs that motivate me and pump energy into me. There is a lot to choose from here. This is my master gym list. You can always make smaller ones.

If you are interested I will share my cool down list also!

What songs motivate you?


  1. Love adding new songs to my gym playlist! I'll check these out.
    I definitely recommend Rockstar by Prima J, Push Push by Kat DeLuna, Fergalicious by Fergie, and U + Ur Hand by Pink. Those get me going.

    xo, V

  2. PS - LOVE your twitter/blog posts! Let's be friends :)

  3. i'm definitely taking a look. like you, i'm making lots of lifestyle changes to make me healthier, including running. music is sooo necessary there :)

  4. Thanks for sharing this is a great list, I have alot of it already but I picked up a few new songs to download.

    I like this kind of music and salsaish music to motivate me. I am not good at salsa dancing, but I love the tempo of the latin beats. Maybe its because I used to do zumba alot!

  11. I love your blog style! It would be great if you could follow me, I'll follow you back!

  12. I love making different playlists for music according to my mood or even to change my mood.
    I've tagged you on my blog

  13. I'm doing the same thing right now! Been taking some classes at new york health and racquet but I haven't decided whether to join there or equinox. Making the classes make all of the difference for me - they push me harder than I ever work on my own.

    Check out Bulletproof by La Roux, Dog Days Are Over by Florence and the Machine, Hello, Good Morning (feat. T.I. & Rick Ross)- Diddy, & Hot 'n Fun by N.E.R.D (feat. Nelly Furtado) is my absolute favorite.

  14. Thank you so much for posting this, i would also be really interested to see your cool down mix for the gym. posts like this always allow me to pick up a few songs for the gym. black eyed peas ' i gotta a feelin' is a personal fav at the mo'

    good luck with the gym. i always find the first
    few weeks are the hardest

  15. thanks for sharing! definitely going to check a bunch of those out :)

  16. I just recently joined the Bar Method studio across the street from my office and luckily I haven't had to rely on a gym play list. I can't complain about the music they play during class - it's surprisingly hip. I guess I was expecting to hear more classical and/or new agey kind of stuff...not Pitbull hahahaha

    Thanks for sharing and good luck with the fitness overhaul...I'm right there with ya!!

  17. I love this! Can you show us your other playlists? I would love to see your Office, Bed, etc!

    Thanks for sharing!

  18. Love your list! Great combination of music :)
