Workout junkies know how important it is to have a good playlist in motion to motivate you through your fitness routine and Michelle Obama is no different. The First Lady recently shared her favorite artists to listen to when she's getting in shape, preferring some old school tunes to get her into the groove.

"A little Heavy D, 'We Got Our Own Thang,'" she sang on Orlando radio station 102 Jamz before adding, "'Treat 'Em Right' by Chubb Rock. A little Chubb Rock, a little Heavy D. Yeah that's on my iPod. That's some of my get me going music."

That's not to say she doesn't like some more recent hits by Willow Smith, Janelle Monáe and Obama super fan Beyoncé.
