Getting through a difficult workout has little to do with endurance and more to do with mindset. If you decide you CAN do one more set or push through to the end of your 45-minute cardio class, you'll be surprised what your body is capable of.
Motivating music is just one of the ways to keep you going when you start to feel tired. Before you even step out the door for a jog or hop in the car to head to the gym, get in the mood with one of these catchy and motivating tunes! Or add all of them to your workout playlist!
1. "Heading Home" by Gryffin feat. Joseph Salvat
Warming up? Start your workout on the right foot with a chill but energizing track with 120 BPM (beats per minute). This is great to listen to while on the treadmill or stationary bike before pumping the weights.
2. “Pump up the Jam” by Technotronic
There's nothing like a peppy dance tune to get your feet moving on the treadmill or spin bike. Listen to this song for moderate to intense workouts, and you might find you can do more reps than usual.
3. "The Greatest" by Sia feat. Kendrick Lamar
I listen to this during Barre class when my legs are about to give out from too many "pulsing" chair squats. My favorite part is the "don't give up" lyric - it's pushed me through many a workout.
4. “Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)” by C+C Music Factory
It's a classic and it has to go on your gym playlist. If you're a fan of the 90s, dance music is the way to go while you're breaking a sweat on the elliptical, stair machine, or during your morning run.
5. "On Top of the World" by Imagine Dragons
I included this song as part of my spin playlist because it makes me feel powerful and happy. Conquer those stairs or maybe climb a steep hill to the beat of this track.
