Let’s dive into Programmer Steve Panacci’s picks!

1. Paolo Ortelli & Max Mylian – Rhythm Is A Dancer

One of the most important elements of exercising is motivation. That’s why you need music with great power. Aside from having that familiarity, the strong up-tempo beat of this song is a great example of the intensity required when working out. This is a remix of the original song by SNAP!

 2. Stone Broken – Worth Fighting For

While this song isn’t necessarily about working out, lyrics like, “stand up, and show them what we’re made of” and “that’s what we’re fighting for” can certainly be applied to this concept – it’s about being a leader and taking control. The playlist containing this song is designed to get the heart rate up!
