POU Health Thread: Come On Let’s Sweat!

What does it take you really get you in the exercising, fully motivated to burn the calories mood?

That’s right, we need to know what songs to put on the POU workout list! Everyone has a song that if you hear it, it will definitely give you the energy boost you need to go on and get through it!  To start us off we have these classics:

C & C Music Factory – Everybody Dance Now

MC Hammer – 2 Legit 2 Quit

Ini Kamoze – Here Comes The Hotstepper

I chose those three to start off because one of my favorite aerobics classes ever, these three were MUST plays for the hard parts of the routine. But we also need songs for walking, lifting weights, yoga, stretching, a whole CD worth of music to put together our official POU workout CD!

So tell us what to add to compile our list as we work to get beach ready!

      “I Go To Work” is another one that is ALWAYS on every instructor’s playlist. Every class I have ever taken, that’s on it. LOL!

      oooh, Housequake! WHAT??

      • MsKitty

        I think that snuck up on me to become my all-time favorite Prince song. When I hear it I have to stop what I’m doing and act a fool.

    The video is horrible and the audio isn’t much better, but Jackie Wilson could set a place on fire!! Baby Work Out!

    I was only a little one when I heard this song. My mom and older sister were screaming like school girls. Now I see why they called Jackie Wilson “Mr. Entertainment” Plus, I’m sure that he was reserved on TV. Can you imagine this man in concert??

    • Miranda

      Dang! I didnt know he moved like that!
