What's your workout music genre of choice?

There's a backstory here:


My wife and I were working out together and when I took my headphones off to spot her, she stopped and said "you listen to metal while you workout... Weird"

And then I learned she listened to pop, and I can't understand how pop fires you up to workout.


I know it's subjective, but my workout playlist is all metal/rock; disturbed, five finger death punch, Korn. Nothing else works for me.


So.. fellow savages.. am I crazy?

Call me what you want, just sign the damn contract
90% of hard rock/metal I listen to is working out. My workout stuff is metal/hard rock, aggressive rap and EDM.

Some Koe Wetzel to start the morning always gets me going. If you don’t know about him, now you know.

Depending on the mood, either music I can relax to like jazz or tecno or music that will pump my heart to its max like another type of techno or classic and alternative rock.Β 

That being said sometimes no music is my way to go, when I really need to concentrate.Β

I do like a mix of a few genres. Rap and rock will always be the top ones on the playlist tho.

Used to be hardcore and metalcore. Now that I've morphed into a full time yuppie, most of the time I just listen to podcasts or YouTube in the background.

I am a mix between house music and rap. Depends on what I'm doing, and I have songs I only use for things like back room warmups at a competition, 1RM squats or lifts, etc.

Personally, scary podcasts. There is a special thrill running the streets at 5am with a horror story pumping the headphones.
But in a group work out anything with a solid beat.

I listen to Deep house and techno. The beat is so consistent and unforgiving it makes me want to keep going!
