I am always looking for new ways to motivate myself when it comes to working out. I've just never really liked getting sweaty, and I'm pasty like a vampire, so I'm not so much into swimming in front of other people. One thing that does help is a fresh set of music on my iPod. I'm always hunting new playlists that other gym gals are listening to, and managed to find a few cool programs/sites in the process. Some are free, others cost a bit. Check these out:
Marina's Audio Workout Center allows you to mix and match over 400 exercise/workout components to create your very own workout.
NextFitness combines your existing music with professional fitness training audio clips to create a new workout.
Best Workout Music converts your existing music in a slower or faster paced song to better match your workouts.
ITrain combines personal training with music delivered to your Mp3 player. Each workout has the trainer's voice providing step by step instructions and motivating you with music in the background. PDF format instructions can be downloaded to your computer to display the positions and directions on how to perform the exercises.
