Target Se Hable Musica - Talking Music! #SeHablaMusica

se habla música, target latin music

Content provided by my partner, Target.

I have to say that I hate exercising. I know I have to do it. I know it's good for me. But, I hate it. My exercise routine consists of doing a Leslie Sansone Walking DVD and hopping on the treadmill. My treadmill is my nemesis!

I really hate going on the treadmill and walking because I get bored. I do counter the boredom by listening to music as I walk. I try to have some dance music, Latin music and pop music on my play list to get me through at least 45 minutes of walking.


Here are just some of my play list highlights:

MarcAnthony: Y Hubo Alguien and Nadie Como Ella
Shakira: Ojos Asi, Suerte and Te Aviso, Te Anuncio
Elvis Crespo: Suavemente, Tu Sonrisa and Pintame
Oscar D'leon: Me Voy Pa' Cali
Rey Ruiz: No Me Acostumbro, Mi Media Mitad
Luis Enrique: Amiga, Mi Mundo, San Juan Sin Ti
Gloria Estefan: Mi Tierra, Conga, Oye Mi Canto
Ricky Martin: Maria, She Bangs, Living La Vida Loca and La Bomba
Jennifer Lopez: Waiting for Tonight
Michael Jackson/Jackson 5: ABC, Shake Your Body, Beat It, Thriller, Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'
Earth, Wind and Fire: September
Rick Springfield: Love Somebody, Jessie's Girl, I've Done Everything For You
Will Smith: Gettin' Jiggy With It and Welcome to Miami
David Bowie: Let's Dance and Modern Love

As you see the majority of my play list is Latin music. I love Latin music. Play me some salsa or merengue music and I am ready to go. The reason my play list is so packed with music in Spanish is because it really gets my heart pumping.

When I am feeling tired or not in the mood, I make sure I listen to a little Elvis Crespo or Marc Anthony and I get a second wind and can finish my exercise routine. Put on a little Shakira and I am moving my hips and pretending that I can sing like she can. Yes, it's a stretch! If I didn't have Latin music on my play list, I don't think I would make it through my workout.

Sometimes I have the music a little too loud and my hubby has to come back to the workout room and ask me to turn it down a notch. I try to exercise when he is not home so I can crank up the volume. But when he is home I have to put on headphones.

The headphones I have are not very good so I prefer to pay my music through my treadmill. But now, I am eyeing a new pair of headphones from Target. Target is now selling a new line of headphones from 19-time Grammy award winner, Emilio Estefan in partnership with Monster. The new "The Sound Machine" headphones are sonically-superior headphones are designed with a special flair for reproducing the rich, percussive nature and vocals of Latin and world music.

These are exactly what I need so I can listen to my Latin music and not irritate my husband and the neighbors! I know everyone would appreciate me wearing headphones while exercising on the treadmill!

To celebrate "The Sound Machine" headphones by Emilio Estefan, Target is giving me a $25 Gift Card for one of my lucky readers!! YAY! I know you all love gift cards and what better gift card to win than a Target card, right?
