Warm up with some great tunes before you begin your workout routine.

Here's terrific exercise music that will motivate you and get your workout started:

"A New Day Has Come"

Celine Dion

(4:19)

*Just a great song to wake-up to; Celine's voice and lyrics are beautiful.

"I Need to Wake Up" (From "An Inconvenient Truth")

Melissa Etheridge

(3:35)

*A truly motivating and inspirational song: a great way to start the day particularly when you're exercising in the morning as I do.

"Beautiful Day"

U2

(4:08)

*It reminds me of all the potential ahead of me in the day.

Up tempo exercise music really gets your heart pumping!

"It's My Life"

Bon Jovi

(3:44)

*It is YOUR life; you can do what you want, get the body you want, whatever. (It's okay to sing to this; I do!)

"Shake Ya Tailfeather"

Murphy Lee, Nelly & P. Diddy

(4:55)

*Note that some of the lyrics are explicit; if this bothers you, skip this and go on to the next song. I've found that I barely listen to the words; the beat is perfect for cardio.

"Get the Party Started"

Pink

(3:11)

*If you haven't already notching up the level or your speed, this is the song to do it to.

"I Like to Move It"

Madagascar 5

(3:13)

*Just a great old club song that really gets you moving no matter what you're doing: running, walking or cardio machines.

"Push It"

DeLorean

(3:19)

*Another classic club song of the '80s, this is still a great workout song -- and perfect for hills or spinning at high speeds on the bike.

"Pump It"

The Black Eyed Peas

(3:33)

*This keeps your heart rate up until you're ready to go into cool down mode.

Wind up your 45 minute workout routine with a cool down set of exercise music that helps your heart rate slow down.

"Torn"

Natalie Imbruglia

(4:06)

*Just the right song to start your cool-down; still has the right beat to start your heart rate slowing down.

Chasing Cars

"Snow Patrol"

(4:25)

*Great band, great lyrics and great cool-down rhythm.

"The First Cut is the Deepest"

Sheryl Crow

(3:47)

*Another slower song that helps wind you down.

"What's Left of Me"

Nick Lachey

(4:05)

*The perfect ending song in your exercise music repertoire. If you don't need this long of a cooldown, you can end on one of the earlier songs.

*Total time adds up a bit more than 46 minutes, allowing you to stay motivated through your entire 45 minute workout -- and to skip or forward ahead through songs if necessary.

I bought these headphones to use on a cross-country flight for work, since I wanted a good pair of noise-cancelling headphones. I really enjoyed them, they are very comfortable, and enclose my ears completely. The noise-cancelling function works really well, it made the engine noise disappear, and I was able to enjoy the movie I was watching without turning the volume all the way up.Great headphones for the money. I would definitely recommend them. check the products HERE : http://boseworkout.com
