Music is everything to me. Listening to a certain song can shift my mood and the right song can even recall a memory or a feeling. Music is powerful!
When it comes to my favorite music for my workouts, I need a playlist filled with songs that will lift me up if I’m sad or tired and energize me to crush my training. I love songs that make me feel like I can do anything. These are the songs that shift my mood and get me happy to workout. For me, it’s all about funk and dance music.
Here are the top six (6) songs that I include in all of my workout playlists:
“Get On The Good Foot” by James Brown
“Different Kind of Lady” by The Jacksons
“Workin’ Day and Night” by Michael Jackson
“Bustin’ Loose” by Chuck Brown
“D.M.S.R.” by Prince
For workouts where I need to get gritty and into the power zone, there’s only one song that does that for me.
“Where The Hood At” by DMX
You have the power to create any mood that you want with your workout playlists. Don’t hold back. Choose songs that mean something to you. Choose your “Guilty Pleasure" and "Sing in the Shower” songs. If you aren’t feeling the vibe that you want, try something else until you do. The right music can make or break a workout so it is worth the time to get your playlist right.
What Makes a Good Workout Playlist?
A good workout playlist is one that has songs that will pump you up and energize you in your workouts. The right playlist will motivate you to push harder. The type of music and songs to include in a workout playlist will be different for everyone. For some, pop and rap music might set the right tone, but for others, funk and dance music might create that vibe. It also depends on the type of workout you are doing. A lower intensity workout, like yoga, might call for more calming and therapeutic music, whereas a high intensity cardio workout, like boxing, might need faster-paced music. Ultimately, you can create a workout playlist that is right for you and your training.
