    I like to kick it old school when I am exercising, so I had many of these on my list! Nothing like a little “Lose Yourself” or “Eye of the Tiger” to get you going! 😉

    I was just wondering how to figure out searching for workout music the other day! Perfect timing. 🙂 I’m a classic rock kind of girl or a country music fan. Wish there had been some country on your list. Miranda Lambert has some pretty fast paced music….
