    Hi everyone. I'm after putting a few tracks together to make up a good workout CD to use with my rebounder. Just wondering if anyone could suggest some good motivational tracks with quite high BPM?

    So far I've got:
    Fragma - Toca's Miracle
    Flashdance - What a Feeling
    Queen - Don't Stop me now
    Queen - Under Pressure
    Kelly Clarkson - Since you've been gone
    2 Unlimited - No Limit
    Bonnie Tyler - Hero

    I'm into more dancey stuff than anything. Many thanks for any suggestions!

    I listen to completely different music depending on what I'm doing. For example, my boxing mix is like this:

    Linkin Park - Points of Authority
    Puff Daddy - Come With Me
    NIN/Bowie - Afraid of Americans
    Faith No More - Be Aggressive

    but my running mix is more like this:

    Muse - Butterflies and Hurricanes
    Dandy Warhols - We Used to be Friends
    Basement Jaxx - Good Luck
    Cake - Comfort Eagle
    Pink (or P!nk if you'd rather) - Cuz I Can

    Most of the time, though, I listen to the music that goes with the classes I teach, because although I try to do my own training on top of my classes, most of my personal workout time is spent practicing choreography for my classes. :rolleyes:

    Well I've been listening to...
    The Killers
    Spiritualized
    Polyphonic Spree

    ...that's this week.


    But, if I was making a CD such as yours I would have to add

    The Alarm - 68 Guns
    Death in Vegas - Scorpio Rising

    Suggestions for your CD:

    Beyonce - Green Light
    Kelly Rowland - Work
    Cascada - Miracle
    Rihanna - Shut Up And Drive
    Ting Tings - That's Not My Name

    Will any of those do? I'm trying to think of songs that make me want to jump up and down that are along the same lines as what you've already got (I figure you don't want Rage Against the Machine...)

    I work out to lots of Linkin Park, Bloodhound Gang, and remixes to songs like Don't Fear The Reaper by Blue Oyster Cult.

    can't beat a bit of rage!! they make you feel like your beating the crap out of your chub!

    if you want something a bit more funky then red hot chilli peppers are great to exercise to.

    Depends what you're into but something really intense that you get completely immersed in can be really good. i always find that an album that you have to listen to right to the end is always good. it makes you forget what youre doing! My album is Lateralus by Tool. I cant listen to the first track without listening to every other one in order. it seems to work as one unit and i get so involved in it that before i know it ive burned off 500 cals!!

    Find one that works for you

    :)
