Top 10 Songs for the Summer of Fitness!

This is the Summer of Fitness my friends! John and I are going to get back into shape this summer. How are we going to do this you ask? Why being at the gym at 6:30 in the morning, of course. I think you should just get in shape for showing up that early... but we've been doing cardio then focusing on a different muscle group each day. Totally John's idea. What sold me was the yoga classes that come along with the gym membership... :D

So - how am I managing to pass all this time on elipitical machines and treadmills? I have a couple of fantastic workout mixes - My newest is what I am sharing with you today!

1. Rooney - When Did Your Heart Go Missing
- I always sing along to this one - so it gets a little awkward.

2. Ke$ha - Your Love is My Drug
- This is my new favorite song, you can't possibly sit still to it!

3. Spice Girls - Spice Up Your Life
- A classic. This song, in my mind, is a brilliant creation for step aerobics!

4. All American Rejects - Dirty Little Secret
- Another on that you want to sing along to!

5. Shakira - Hips Don't Lie
- Such an upbeat song - makes you want to move!

6. Britney Spears - Stronger
- Quite the motivational ditty - good for the end of the workout! The dance in the video looks like a workout itself!

7. Fergie - Fegalicious
- Pretty much for the line about being "up in the gym working on her fitness..."

8. Rob Thomas - How Far We've Come
- I always make this the last song, mostly because it talks about accomplishments!

9. J. Sean ft. Lil Wayne - Down
- Well, if you're not moving enough this one will get you dancing!

10. Pussycat Dolls - When I Grow Up
- I am a sucker for this song, love the fast pace!

Now I hope you get the motivation to hit up the gym, jog, do some yoga, or maybe just park a little further back and enjoy the walk!


  1. I love the headband. Not much for the pants though. Also, great song list!

  2. Just worked out this morning, will be starting my yoga practice next week, again. We had a fire at the studio, so it has been six months. Thanks for the inspiration.

  3. Great song list for sure - I have most of those songs on my workout list. lol

    I like to listen to the really upbeat songs for hooping.


Hey - so - what do you think?
