When thinking about exercise, it's easy to get bogged down by numbers (miles run) and effects (pounds lost). But getting fit should be fun, and if there's ever a time when that's going to be the case, it's summer-when the weather works in your favor and you can get fit in the great outdoors.

To score your renewed commitment to toning up, we've compiled some of the sunniest workout tunes around. Looking for something new? Try Mika's latest track or Calvin Harris' aptly-titled "Summer." Dig the classics? There are signature cuts from The Beach Boys and Bryan Adams, plus a seaside epic courtesy of The First Class. Need an instant pick-me-up? Crank up the volume on Katy Perry and Snoop Dogg's smash collaboration.

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
