Shape magazine organized the Fitness Music series with the intention of providing the perfect music for 60-minute workouts. Each tape is designed for nonstop workouts, so the music is non-stop -- each song is segued together -- and vaguely mirrors a workout, with warm-up and cool-down sections to the music. The liner notes also included a number of fitness tips, as well as a BPM chart. Musically, the tapes each follow a particular style. In the case of Cardio 1, the music is all classic disco from the '70s and dance-club hits from the '80s. Among the feautred songs are Robin S.'s "Love for Love," and Midnight Star's "Midas Touch," Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive," Right Said Fred's "I'm Too Sexy," Paula Abdul's "Cold Hearted," Judy Cheeks' "As Long As You're Good To Me," Blondie's "Heart of Glass," and Technotronic's "Move This" and "Pump up the Jam." It's a solid selection of tunes, and they help make Shape: Cardio 1 a successful exercise tape.

This is just what I was looking for.....familiar, energizing songs with a fun rock beat geared to a certain pace. I want to work up to being able to do a 5k and thought this might help. The song selection kept me entertained and moving at a consistent pace and made it possible for me to improve. I will be able to move up to the next faster pace soon. I am very pleased with this product.
