'Go for it'

I was just wrapping up my cardio work at the gym this morning and moving on to the weights when what could possibly be the perfect workout song started coming through the gym’s speakers: Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger” from “Rocky III.”

C’mon! What song could possibly motivate you more to get your butt in gear (except maybe the original “Rocky” music)?

Usually I have my headset on while I’m on the elliptical or bike so I can listen to the news—you have to plug in to this little box on the machine in order to hear the TV. But once in a while I lose the headphones because they do play a great mix of ‘80s tunes. Another great song to work out to: “Take On Me” by one-hit wonders A-ha.

On a side note, here’s the best line from “Rocky III”:

Reporter: Clubber, what’s your prediction for the fight?
Clubber Lang: My prediction? (Mr. T stares into the camera) Pain.
