Workout Playlist

I've needed a little extra boost to get going with my workouts lately so I decided to switch up my playlist. Getting motivated to go to the gym can be freaking difficult. Before I just set my Pandora to the Katy Perry station or the 2000s Hip Hop Radio station but I was getting burnt out. I'm the kind of girl that can definitely workout without music but I will workout for half the amount of time without it. So, I switched it up and I've made more of a custom playlist to kick up my gym sessions.

I like to set obtainable goals for myself such as "Ready, Set Go- scissor tail crunches until this song is over!" with a hot song on this makes that crunch session go much faster and seem easier. Here are a few of my top picks that made my list. I know these are all very popular songs right now but they are really good "get your booty going" ones.
Songs on this high energy list include:

Ariana Grande, Jessie J and Nicki Minaj - Bang Bang
Taylor Swift - Shake It Off
Iggy Azalea - Black Widow
Sia - Chandelier
Ariana Grande - Break Free
All About That Bass - Meghan Trainor
Avicii - Wake Me Up
OneRepublic - Love Runs Out
Katy Perry - Roar
Miley Cyrus - Adore You
Eminem - Till I Collapse
Lolly with Juicy J & Justin Bieber - Maejor Ali
Nicki Minaj - Anaconda
Iggy Azalea - Fancy

All of these songs are high energy that are great at naturally getting me to pick up the pace. I have been trying to pick songs that are almost impossible to sit still to. This has seemed to be helping me pick it up at the gym lately. When I want to cool down I just turn on a country station on Pandora usually.

What are some of your tips that help you keep you motivated with your workouts and what does your current playlist sound like?

  1. I Love Pandora! It has made a big difference for me when I go running! I definitely need music when I workout, it distracts me from the pain! ;)
