I've always liked Muse songs, and most of them are pretty up-beat!
I'm all about books on MP3 for working out. I love love love them. I'm currently "reading" The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown and it's quite enjoyable to listen to. Check out the local library and you can probably rent them out. Our library here has a great selection of Audio books.

Estelle is fantastic to exercise to... her album Shine has some really great songs that make you want to move! Gym Class Heroes also make me want to move. If hip hop doesn't float your boat (I LOVE it for working out), Phoenix is also amazing. Check out their songs Liztomania, 1901, and Armistice.
I used to dance on our minitramp to DeDanaan (Irish) and an old Isreali Folk record. Also Jethro Tull. Even though I'm just an old fogey, the music is still really great.
have you gotten into Allison Kraus yet?Rufus Wainwright?Have you ever had a Joni Mitchell fest? Leonard cohen?I LOVE Billy Joel lately.These are all old (except Krauss) but sometimes we miss the old ones in our playlists...
sorry, just read the word "workout" in your post on rereading it. A lot of these won't work :) unless you want peaceful music for running/biking to, not upbeat stuff for lifting or situps.Hmmm. Aerosmith. or Live. I like those two for good beats and slight angst to keep me going.
Two words: Spice. Girls. 'Nuff said.(Sorry, I really have been trying to think of for real suggestions, but I just don't listen to a whole lot of workout type music I guess. All that emo stuff I listen to is just so moody :) Ever checked out Brandi Carlisle? She's pretty upbeat lots of the time and she's super awesome.)
