From classic rock to modern sounds, the best choices for this type of moving music are varied, but all of them are really fun. You want upbeat music with a little punch to it.
- "Around the World" by the Red Hot Chili Peppers is such an upbeat, fast song that it was once used on one of the fastest rides at Disneyland. It will get you ready to punch and move and kickbox at a fast pace.
- Put on "Fighter" by Christina Aguilera to really get the kickboxing party started. Perfectly themed for just such a workout, the song reminds the kickboxing student that she can kick and fight her way through any work out.
- "Everybody" (Backstreet's Back) by the Backstreet Boys is a bit retro from the 1990s, but it is a lot of fun for any kickboxing class. Kickboxing requires a lot of moving your body. As the lyrics refrain constantly command moving your body, it's a perfect fit.
- The biggest hit of the group Boy Meets Girl, "Waiting for a Star to Fall" is an upbeat song that's sure to put a bit of zen in your kickboxing routine. It was a hit in the late 1980s and was featured on the ending credits of "Three Men and a Little Lady." Its pure sound and fast pace makes a great fit for working out.
"Beat Goes On" by Madonna from her album "Hard Candy" is a song with a modern sound that makes it easy to keep time as you kickbox to your heart's content. Just keep in mind that you may be tempted to sing along to the fun lyrics as you kick.
- Leonard Cohen's "Everybody Knows" brings musical perfection and fun to a routine. His song is smooth and yet stinging in its truth. It's great for near the end or the beginning of a class, as you warm up or cool down.
- Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive" should be played near the end of your kickboxing routine when the going gets tough. It will re-energize and keep you going through even a tough kickboxing routine, as its lyrical affirmations are irresistible.
- "Where Is The Love" by the Black-Eyed Peas belongs anywhere in a kickboxing workout. Upbeat and strong in its message, it is especially great for a group kickboxing class. It's a strong motivator, and listening to the lyrics will get your mind off tired muscles.
- "Beat It" by Michael Jackson is another strong song for a kickboxing class. With its tough theme, students in a kickboxing class (or yourself when you play it back on your mp3 player) will smile in recognition of how it fits with the kickboxing experience.
- "No Matter What You Do" by Olivia Newton-John is a song that may be one of the most upbeat and positive songs ever written. It's no empty pop song. Written at a time when the singer was overcoming cancer, it's a song perfect for the fight one needs to complete a great kickboxing routine.
