Best Workout Songs of 2009

Which Song Moved You the Most in 2009?

So many pumped-up tunes came out last year — like Madonna's "4 Minutes" and "Keeps Gettin' Better" by Christina Aguilera, to name a couple. While those songs definitely still inspire me to get moving, there are only so many times I can "Put a Ring on It." Good thing 2009 brought us some bouncy, beat-filled songs to add to my mixes. Take a listen to each song and then tell me, which is your fave from this year?

All of the songs on the list suck. Seriously. My song of choice is "I Want I Want" by Digitalism.

AGREE with Party in the USA & Evacuate The Dance Floor, I can hardly do cardio to either since I want to bust out dancing :)

LADY GAGA!!!! Most of her songs are awesome workout songs (and just in general). Beyonce is my #2. So any song with them both is AMAZING!!!! :)

Fiver Finger Death Punch, Mushroomhead and Shakira's Fijacion Oral! Best workout music! Also, Distrubed and any upbeat Latin music! I'm not saying that is normal, it just works for me!

What a terrible list! I haven't even heard of some of these. And most of the biggest hits of the year are missing.

I'm kinda shocked that neither Gaga or Beyonce had their own songs listed, just a midtempo duet.

I haven't heard any of these. I am officially an old fuddy-duddy.

Jay Sean's "DOWN" is still the song that begins every single run for me.

I'm with Mila_83...I love Empire State of Mind by JayZ and I also think Meet Me Halfway by the Blackeyed Peas should be on this list.

I think I'd go with She Wolf by Shakira, or Just Dance by Lady Gaga. Although, I may listen to Bad Romance enough by the end of the year that it would qualify too.

All of the above sound completely horrible to me.

Telephone, but I also completely adore the new Shakira, Timbaland w/Nelly Furtado, and TiK ToK. All of those songs have got me moving these days!
