In the real world, I’m too clumsy to get on the treadmill, I’m afraid of killing myself on the elliptical, and I need extra motivation for that last half mile on the stationary bike (Usher’s Scream) or the last 10 reps on the leg extension/overhead press machines (Eminem’s Till I Collapse). I push myself through this and more because I’m an overachiever and I love leaving the gym feeling like the 40-pound overweight Spaniard version of Naomi Campbell (no, I don’t walk out wanting to throw phones and shoes at people) or Cindy Crawford (sans the mole).

What’s on your iPod? What keeps you going at the gym or elsewhere?
