Like most lovers of music, country fans can enjoy all genres, from pop to hip-hop—which helps explain why songs like Lady Antebellum's "Need You Now" and Jason Aldean's "Dirt Road Anthem” were such big hits.
With that in mind, fitness icon Jake Steinfeld, host of the seminal exercise show Body by Jake, has put together a collection of workout songs that he hopes will appeal to all active music fans: Body by Jake Music, the first volume of which was released this week.
“Great music travels. It’s amazing how energized you can feel, listening to exhilarating music,” Jake said. “Exercise can be boring. But with great music, it can take the edge off of any exercise routine. Music has the power to stimulate, inspire you to go that extra mile, do that last set of reps and reach or go beyond your goal. We want you to look forward to your next workout because the music, your experience and results are that good.”
Some of the artists and songs featured on Body by Jake Music’s first volume, Ripped and Toned Workout , include Lady Gaga (“Marry the Night”), Fergie featuring Ludacris (“Glamorous”), OneRepublic (“All the Right Moves”) and LMFAO (“Party Rock Anthem”).
