Did you know that carefully selected music can enhance the endurance of exercisers by 15%? This statistic is one of the findings from a 2008 Brunel University research study. Being an active bunch, we asked all members of the WebPT team to submit their favorite workout songs and playlists. We had quite a few interesting songs submitted.
With a long list of options, we drew songs out of a hat. Drum-roll please! And here’s the winning workout playlist!
- Rock N Roll All Night by KISS
- Thunderstruck by AC/DC
- Electric Feel by MGMT
- How Do You Like Me Now by The Heavy
- Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now) by C+C Music Factory
- It Takes Two by Rob Base & DJ E-Z Rock
- Dear Jack by Jack's Mannequin
- Good Life by One Republic
- Under and Over It by Five Finger Death Punch
