Yup, the Robot is dead alright...(at last!)!
"The jury (me & my workout class) has rendered the following verdict: GREAT STUFF! So, when's #2 coming down the pike?"
Da Gurlz - 5 Stars, CD Baby

Awesome!
"As a fan of hard rock AND techno, I found this album to be of great use while working out. I look forward to buying future versions of any work from the Gymrattz Collective. Great work, you guys! Thank you"
Calvin411 - iTunes Customer

Great for keeping up the pace!
"This is a great album for keeping up the turnover while you are working out. I use this one at least once a week for my training runs. Can't wait for more..."
CARunner - iTunes Customer

Finally, workout music that doesn't suck!!
"You guys got it right! I love to listen to headphones while I'm on the elliptical trainer but workout music is usually that dance/synth stuff or bad remakes of songs I never liked anyway.
A. Hawthorne. - 5 Stars, CD Baby

Awesome Workout tunes!
"For anyone who, like me, is sick of trying to workout to weak, tinkly techno and needs something adrenaline-inducing in the mornings, Kill the Robot is a perfect 30-minute blast for cardio. If I have to be at the gym before I have my coffee, I'm glad to finally have some workout music that can help me get my butt in gear."
DaniW - iTunes Customer

The Gymrattz Collective was formed to fill a simple need: Create original rock music to be listened to while working out, in particular, while completing the cardio portion of our workouts.

After an exhaustive search on the internet for rock workout music that was original, instrumental and had predictable tempos, it became clear that there was very little available. In fact, this project was started because we were not able to find any at all.

So, in March 2006, work was started on a workout CD that would set the stage for an entire series of rock cardio music: Kill the Robot! Volume 1 (anti-techno slur intended). When we were finished, we found ourselves with a collection of cardio workout music that offered everything we felt a true rock workout CD should offer: real guitars, real basses and real drums, played by real people who could really play.

As always, our goal is simple: The Gymrattz Collective is committed to helping you get the most from your cardio workout.




We love to hear from our friends! Help us help you. We want to know what you want to hear. Tell us what songs work, what songs don't, and why. Let us know what tempos get you moving. And lastly, let us know how we can improve our website. We respond to every email we receive, so don't be shy.
