Workout Playlist


Pump up the intensity of your workout with these suggested playlists! No matter which set you choose, it’ll give you an extra boost to work harder and that’ll only lead to more calories being burned. For some athletes and for many people who run, jog, cycle, lift weights and otherwise exercise, music is not superfluous—it is essential to a satisfying workout and to peak performance!

Psychologists refine their ideas about why exercise and music are such an effective pairing for so many people as well as how music changes the body and mind during physical exertion. Music distracts people from pain fatigue, elevates mood, increases endurance, reduces perceived effort and may even promote metabolic efficiency. When listening to music, people run farther, bike longer and swim faster than usual—often without realizing it.

What have you got to lose? (Just more calories!) So check ‘em out below:
