Having the right workout tunes can definitely help improve your mood and make your workout more awesome…

Naturally if you’re training with me or one of the Megan K Fitness team,  you won’t require awesome music, but having a kick butt song playing while you run or lift will definitely make things more fun.

Here are the Best 80s Songs For Exercise:

  • Survivor “Eye of the Tiger”
  • Kenny Loggins “Highway to the Danger Zone” “Footloose”
  • Cheap Trick “Mighty Wings”
  • Europe “The Final Countdown” (sorry Miranda)

Remember people, just because you’re getting your workout on to 80s music doesn’t mean you need to wear leg warmers, colored leggings or thong underwear on the outside of your exercise pants.

In good health,
