Gold's Gym, the world's leading authority in health and fitness, announced today that Kanye West can officially lay claim to having crafted the strongest song in the gym. After an intense nationwide vote, his popular track, "Stronger," was nominated by Super Bowl XLII champion Michael Strahan, survived a star-studded bracket of 64 iPod all-stars to be named the greatest workout song of all time.
"Stronger," West's 2007 hit from his Graduation album, was voted the winner in Gold's Gym's first ever March Music Madness competition. The competition was designed to put an end to the age old debate about what song really is the best for working out. Whether it's music from Rocky, hip- hop, hair bands, pop or metal, people have always had strong opinions. Gold's Gym's March Music Madness answered the question once and for all... or at least until next year.
Hundreds of nominations from celebrities, fans of music and gym members alike were submitted from around the country. Sixty-four of the most popular nominations were chosen by Gold's Gym celebrity trainers and fitness experts to go head-to-head in the bracket-style competition. With more than 20,000 votes logged during the event, West's "Stronger," nominated for the competition by FOX NFL Sunday Analyst and former New York Giant Michael Strahan, emerged from a "Final Four" that included Eminem's "Lose Yourself," The Black Eyed Peas' "Boom Boom Pow" and Guns N' Roses "Welcome to the Jungle."
