Fitness Friday | Music That Motivates




Nothing ratchets up your workout like great music! Not only does it get you going, but research shows it keeps you going by providing motivation to make your workout longer and more intense. It is amazing how the right combination of songs can totally transform a workout, which is exactly why music is such an important part of the classes I teach.

I always look forward to working out, but let’s be honest, sometimes the motivation just isn’t all there for me.  On those days, I rely on an extra push from music to get me on my feet and through the workout.  So before you workout, put the music in by creating a playlist that will energize and inspire you.  Keep it fresh and let the music move you!

This week, I am including a 60 minute playlist to fuel YOUR workout. See if you like any of the songs I have picked out and let me know your favorites in the comments section below. I hope this helps you ROCK your workout!

And if you want to amp up your workout with dance (which hands down is the best cardio workout), come check out a Dancer Sculpt class where I will be playing songs from this playlist all next week.
