I never liked gym music anyway. I remember a heavy squat day once that convinced me to buy an iPod. They played Robbie Williams - Feel followed by Delta Goodrem (no idea of the song, hate her music) followed by some other easy listening junk. I think that gyms would be better off doing some sort of sponsorship deal with iTunes or similar, such that they submit a playlist for gym participants to download for a class. Then the gym can literally just have the radio playing at low levels in the gym itself and everyone can provide their own music. Win for anyone who hates their music, win for musicians, win for gyms.
Personally I've noticed that most people on the gym floor are wearing iPods anyway. Very few people listen to gym music, most ignore it anyway. Classes are the only people this will affect.
