We’ve Got the Beat: Spring Workout Mixes

Whether you’re a fan of classic rock, rap, indie jams, top 40 hits or hip-hop, nailing down the perfect workout playlist can make all the difference. Nothing beats when that perfect song comes on just as you’re about to throw in the towel.

From lower-intensity tunes for a long run to new material that gets your heart pumping, we’ve compiled a spring workout list that will help you take your workouts to the next level.

PRO TIP: If you like to dance to a song, it should probably be on your workout playlist.

“Riptide” – Vance Joy

A great kick-off song that will get you smiling no matter what mood you’re in. Just try to keep from humming along.

“Shake it Off” – Taylor Swift

This one is a no-brainer. Have you seen how much Tay Swift moves during the music video? This aerobics group has the right idea:

“Anything Could Happen” – Ellie Goulding

The solid beat throughout will keep you on track mid-workout, just when you need a pick-me-up.

“Take Me To Church” – Hozier

Need to dig deeper? This soulful track is perfect as you slow down and pump up resistance, whether spinning or on the elliptical.

“L-O-V-E” – Nat King Kole

When all you’re looking for is a feel-good tune you can sign along to. A good song to keep you relaxed during a longer run.

“Get Lucky” – Daft Punk

See pro tip above, re: songs that make you want to dance.

“I Love It” – Icona Pop

Will make you feel like a kid again. Invincible.
