Whether you're a gym rat or simply enjoy the occasional light trail run, most people who work out prefer doing so accompanied by some sort of music, something which the industry is, of course happy, to capitalize on, with many songs and playlists tailor made for this purpose. Here, we look at what sort of music is best for the perfect workout.
In this latest piece on MusicThinkTank, contributor Scott Huntington digs into some of the best types of music to workout to.

The truth is that pop songs often have the right number of beats per minute to keep you moving through a workout, so try it out if you haven’t listened to pop exercise playlists before. Songs like Kesha’s “Die Young” and “Scream & Shout” by will.i.am are just a couple of the pop favorites that have just the right tempo to make any workout a breeze. With a quick search, you’ll find an energizing pop playlist with all your favorite current and past hits."
