    I use the FitRadio app which generates workout playlists for you. You can chose by genre, workout activity, and pace/tempo, etc. It also offers audio coaching and interval setting options. I have a few playlists that are my go-tos and always keep me pumped during and even after workouts.

    I subscribe to a podcast by a group called 'Above & Beyond'.

    They put out a 2 hour mix each week of electronic music (trance/prog house) which I find perfect for when I'm working out, going for a run or out on my bicycle.

    The best bit is that since they release a new one each week I'm never listening to the same songs over and over again. Always new and fresh music to enjoy.

    I created a Spotify playlist for my runs called Run Fat Boy Run (which also happens to be the title of one of the songs). It's mostly a mix of punk, ska, and metal. I'm especially fond of a couple of metal Disney covers (The Bells of Notre Dame is great) as well as Hatebreed's Perseverance, which is just someone yelling encouragement at you over driving metal guitars.
