The Best Workout Music

I had one of the best cardiovascular workouts on the Precor Total Body Crossramp machine.  It's an elliptical trainer (or crosstrainer) and it gives you a very good workout.  You can go forwards and backwards on it, and you can adjust the Crossramp (incline) and the Resistance.  The machine I was working out on was the Precor EFx 576i Total Body Crossramp.

It's been said that you have a better workout if you do it to music.  I had my earbuds on and was keeping rhythm with the music. I worked out for more than one hour and the machine said I burned over 700 calories.  That's a good workout for me!

I would like to share with you some of the best workout music that I have in my mp3 player right now, and hope it inspires you to listen to some upbeat, sweat-inducing tunes to help you with your workouts. Some songs are oldies and a lot are newer.  Most songs are Top 40 and there's a mixture of dance, pop and hip hop.  Here they are, in no particular order:
