    I'm a Baby Boomer. I grew up in the 60's, so I love the oldies like: Beatles, Mama's and Papa's, Beach Boys, Herman's Hermits, etc. I also like soundtracks of movies like "Funny Girl". I prefer music with a somewhat rapid beat so I will work harder when I am at the gym.

    Metallica and Justice for All or Mater of Puppets most of the time. Sometime I mix it up with SirusXM Octane or liquid metal channels.

    I’ve had to start listening to ambient/atmospheric/new-agey stuff (Dan Gibson, Jeremy Soule, etc) when I go to the gym. Found that the music one would usually expect at a gym was stressing me out, both as a distraction as well as feeding ocd behaviours.

    I've been doing classic rock workout mix lately. Like it pretty loud.

    It'll sound strange, but wrestling themes are great at the gym since they are designed to pump people up upon hearing them. For instance:
