About March Music Madness

Along with a towel and water bottle, music has become an essential accessory for any workout. For most people, music is a source of inspiration, motivation and even concentration.  In fact, studies have shown that music can improve both your workout and your results at the gym!

That’s why we created the March Music Madness competition three years ago ? to find out what our 3 million members are listening to while breaking a sweat, and to help you discover new music that will keep your fitness routine as fresh and fierce as your playlist.

March Music Madness is a six-week, bracket-style competition that will begin with 64 songs, chosen through a mix of nominations from members, fans and our celebrity friends. In the first round, participants will be asked to vote on their favorite song in 32 individual music match-ups, pitting track against track until we are left with 32 songs. The bracket and voting will continue until we are down to the Sweet 16, Elite 8, Final 4 and finally the Championship Round!

Catching the attention of a recent Wall Street Journal article, the theme for the third annual March Music Madness is “Battle of the Bands,” meaning that all of the songs nominated must be performed by a duo or group. If you nominated a song, and that song is crowned the Battle of the Bands Ultimate Workout Song, we'll put our money where our mouth is and make a $5,000 donation to the charity of your choice!  Now isn't that music to your ears?

If you don’t have a favorite workout song, or didn’t participate in the nominations, you can still be a winner!  Once the 64 workout songs by a duo or group have been nominated, the voting phase begins. Just like the brackets you know and love, you will have the opportunity to compete against others in the competition to earn points and prizes.
