Gold's Gym March Music Madness

We all know that music plays a huge part in almost everyone’s workout regimen. That’s why we want to find out the answer to this question:

What is the ultimate workout song of all time?

We’re giving our members, fans and celebrity friends the opportunity to nominate and then vote on the top 64 workout songs in our bracket?style competition. In the end, only one song will be left standing!

So nominate your favorite today! If you're the first to nominate a song and that song is chosen for the bracket, you'll receive an email confirmation. If your song wins, we'll make a $5,000 donation to the charity of your choice!
