Training Choons!

Okay, as we all know music in gyms is, on the whole, sh*te (especially the big chain gyms - I had a trial membership to Virgin Active when I was in Manchester and I recall them playing just 4 tracks: - Ronan Keating - Life Is A Rollercoaster, Rhianna - Umbrella and the new ones by Sophie Ellis-Bextor and Lady GaGa. Rhianna, love, if you want some ideas as to what to do with that soddin' brolly, I'll give ya some! )

So I was wondering what we all train to (if anything)?

Personally, I'm fairly eclectic. If I'm doing a hard cardio sesh, then it's usually a bit of hard rock (Aerosmith, AC/DC, G N' R, Thin Lizzy - even Bon Jovi (if they can be called hard rock...) or, if I REALLY wanna push meself, Airbourne (if you don't know of them, go to Last.fm or Spotify and check 'em out. They're basically the 'new' AC/DC but on speed!)) or even a bit of punk (The Clash, Stiff Little Fingers and The Damned being particular faves.)

Or occasionally, I'll go for a bit o' metal (Thunder, Metallica (Death Magnetic's wonderful for a punchbag session - I find I need 'angry' music to get the best out of meself) or even a bit o' Sabbath).

If I want to take things a bit more leisurely, then I find that Pulp or The Killers fill the bill.

I've been told that I have a bloke's taste in music (never thought of it that way, I just like what I like. Lily, Amy, Leona et al, just aren't my thang...).

So, what about the rest of yers...?

    I train at home so its usually Talk sport or 5live when weight training.

    Same for my long walks.

    Any harder cardio like running, boxing or circuits I like to listen to Dance music on my MP3.

    Where is the 'None of the above' option?

    Depends what mood I'm in but usually US RnB of some form.  Occasionally rap, occasionally house music, occasionally hard dance/scouse.

    Unaffiliated.
