Maximum Workout, Vol. 1 collects two discs' worth of high-energy dance-pop and club hits with BPMs ranging from 132 to 140 -- a good pace for an extended cardio session. While not all the tracks included are standouts, they do help contribute to a consistently energetic pace. Disc one's highlights include Kylie Minogue's "I Begin to Wonder (Dead or Alive Remix)," DJ Sammy's "Boys of Summer (Green Court Remix)," and Voodoo & Serano's "Blood in Pumpin'," while Mad'House's "Holiday (French Techno Mix)," "Zombie Nation," and Masterson's "Stars" are some of disc two's notable tracks. It may not be the most creative collection, but Maximum Workout, Vol. 1 does an effective job of getting the blood pumping.
