What Is Your Favorite PR Song?


Written by

Samantha Lower – No way I can name just one, but I need upbeat, fun, singalong type music! Which normally results into Ke$ha.

Sam Lower’s training/karaoke sessions are pretty legendary…

Ariel Stephens– I LOVE “Headlines” by Drake.

Chad Wesley Smith– Though I try to avoid using music to fire me up, I know one that can always get me going is Mumford and Sons-Dustbowl Dance.

Kalle Beck – I like Fantasy by Mariah Carey

Dr. Quinn Henoch– Manfred Mann – Mighty Quinn

James Townsend– Uptown-Drake, Living On A Prayer-Bon Jovi, Oh Lets Do It-Lil Wayne

Marisa Inda – Marc Anthony “Valio la Pena”, because who can’t get down to a good salsa song?

Dr. Mike Israetel – “Bar None” by Max Graham. Bet no one else will answer that.

Maya Winters– Anything nasty by Nicki Minaj. Sorry, I find her raunch empowering and her aggression liberating.

Colin Burns– Silence. You don’t get music in a meet. So no sense in getting used to it in the gym.

Blaine Sumner – Down with the Sickness by Disturbed and anything by 5FDP

Alyssa Ritchey– I love Christian & country music to take me through my CrossFit workouts it helps focus more rather than rush the workout. It allows me to stay mentally focused as well. Head banging music is just too much if I listen to something more upbeat its Britney Spears DUH!

Reid Worhtington– Eminem Radio on Pandora, or some Anberlin

Jamie Hagiya– I love anything rap/hip hop. Love 90’s hip hop. Snoop, Biggie, Jay-Z, 2pac, Ice Cube. And also teeny bopper songs like T-Swift, Kelly Clarkson, Jessi J.

Greg Panora – Runnin-Biggie and Tupac, Top to the Bottom-Boosie, Dead Wrong-Biggie, Trigger Finger-Lil Wayne, Amityville-Eminem., Anything on Thug Motivation by Jeezy. PRs are gangster and your music should be too.

Ewa Januszk– I’m pretty positive that not a single person in our gym (Gleason Performance Training) has not PRed at least once to a Rob Zombie, Disturbed, or All that Remains song. The more aggressive or meathead powerlifter the song, the more likely it is to be played at GPT. But on deadlift days, you can definitely catch me throwing on DMX (“Party Up” is a fav), Lil Wayne, or Beyonce. Queen B can do no wrong.
