Dance, Dance

Many of you may already know this but I love to dance.  Whether it is dancing at Wibs (the local bar/dance club, often dubbed as Club de la Wibs), Zumba, Just Dance, or dance parties with friends, I love dancing along to a good beat.

That’s us dancing at Wibbies.

I seriously just love music, too.  I have my IPOD with my everywhere I go.  Walking to class, working out, studying.  Music runs my days.

That’s why, when I was contacted by Chris Lawhorn of RunHundred, I jumped at the opportunity to introduce you to his website. 


I know I am often looking for new music to amp up my workouts and keep my energy level up and active.  I have even asked you all before for some new Ipod suggestions.  After signing up for RunHundred’s music database, I was amazed by the amount of songs that I immediately wanted to add to my workout playlists. 

What’s nicest about the songs is that they are categorized in many ways to help you custom-fit songs for your groovy workouts.  You can choose songs based tempo, genre, and decade to make your songs more customized to your musical tastes. 

Here’s a little of what Chris had to say about the site for some New Year motivation:

Traditionally, winter is the time of year when folks find it hardest to get out and exercise.  In the hopes of keeping folks motivated, readers from–the web’s most heavily-trafficked workout music blog–were polled regarding their favorite, current workout songs.  The resulting top 10 list has a little of what you’d expect—and a little you might not.  Flo Rida, who’s no stranger to this list, shows up in two recent tracks.  Enrique Iglesias continues his transition from balladeer to club rocker.  And Kelly Clarkson, after faltering with the first single off her new album, bounced back ferociously with the second.

As for surprises, they’re mostly entries from folks relatively new on the dance scene.  Highlights include songs from Tim Berg (who remixed his own track under his Avicii moniker), Skrillex (whose collaboration with Kaskade is the first dubstep track ever the make the Top 10), and Wolfgang Gartner (who’s made the chart with a little help from the Black Eyed Peas’ Will.I.Am).

As he mentioned, there is a list of the Top Ten Current Workout songs. Here’s the full list:

Tim Berg – Seek Bromance (Avicii Vocal Edit) – 127 BPM

Katy Perry – The One That Got Away – 135 BPM

Alexandra Stan – Mr. Saxobeat (Maan Studio Remix) – 126 BPM

Flo Rida – Good Feeling – 129 BPM

Wolfgang Gartner & Will.I.Am – Forever – 128 BPM

Hot Chelle Rae – Tonight Tonight (Goldstein Remix) – 118 BPM

Taio Cruz & Flo Rida – Hangover – 129 BPM

Enrique Iglesias, Pitbull & The WAV.s – I Like How It Feels – 129 BPM

Kaskade & Skrillex – Lick It – 128 BPM

Kelly Clarkson – What Doesn’t Kill You (Stronger) – 117 BPM

I will admit, I love me some dubstep Winking smile.

I highly suggest you check out this website if you are looking to rev up your workouts.  I definitely can’t wait to use the tempo of certain songs in regard to my fluid bike training.  One song fast tempo, one song slower tempo.  Repeat. And repeat. And repeat. Sounds like a good workout to me Smile.  Maybe I will turn my living room into a dance club…

Seriously, though, check out  I don’t think you’ll regret it!

How do you choose songs for your workout?

Have you ever tried RunHundred?

  3. Completely the same- absolutely LOVE dancing and bring music with me wherever I go! When I did run, I had to run to something with a fast beat… I never ended up matching my pace to the running rhythm (I tried…. but it never worked!) but I still had to run with something fast!
