My Fave 45 Minute Workout Playlist!

by agirlandhermutt on September 12, 2014

Other than a healthy body, mind and soul, I am motivated to go to the gym by two big things.

1. Fun workout clothes
2. Music

Although I love chatting about fashion, today we are focusing on music.

I CAN NOT work out without music. This is one of the things I struggle with at home. If the instructor isn’t engaging on the video AND there is no music? Not happening. If I show up to the gym for cardio and forget my headphones? Uh, turn around and go home. Not happening.

One of the main reasons I love my Zumba classes is because the instructors (who are very similar) have amazing music. If they had classic zumba music, it just wouldn’t work for me. I like some crappy, poppy, booty poppin’, dancey music. I’m not ashamed.

I’ve shared some of my favorite songs over the past few years, but this time I wanted to share one of a playlist of some of my favorite songs. It starts with my warm-up and ends with a one song cool-down. Throw in some songs that are upbeat for some moving fast and slower for some hardcore resistance/incline and you have my current favorite 45 minute playlist.



1. “Prayer in C (Robin Schulz Remix)”- Lilly Wood and The Prick, Robin Schultz

2. “Burn”- Ellie Goulding

3. “Bang, Bang”- Jessie J, Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj

4. “A Little Party Never Killed Nobody (All We Got)”- Fergie, Q-Tip, GoonRock

5. “We Run the Night”- Havana Brown, Pitbull

6. “Drink (Lazy Jay Edit)”- Lil Jon, LMFAO

7. “Do It Like A Dude”- Jessie J

8. “Dale, Dale”- Francesca Maria, Jayko, Cisa, Drooid

9. “Come With Me Now”- KONGOS

10. “Day N’ Nite”- Kid Cudi

11. “Down With the Trumpets”- Rizzle Kicks

12. “Pompeii (Krazy Kat Remix)”- Bastille

13. “The Man”- Aloe Blacc

You can check out the playlist, which is technically 47 minutes, over on Spotify here.  Let me know what you think! Except if you aren’t a fan of Jessie J. Then keep your opinions to yourself. Winking smile
