#HauteSounds: Sweat It Out With Our Ultimate Workout Playlist!
Can you imagine taking your daily run or hitting the gym every day without some music? I sure can’t! I need my earphones and my handy old iPod wherever I go. While I often receive flak for constantly listening to music while I’m travelling with family, I can’t help myself. I need good music wherever I am, whatever I’m up to!
More importantly, listening to music while you run or workout really helps. It can motivate you and keep you focused. You won’t even realise how much you’ve exerted yourself because you’re going to be humming along to the sound. Music also works as a calming factor, enabling you to workout or run without stressing about other things that are buzzing around inside your head.
So the next time you’re heading out for a walk or to your gym, make sure you have these 8 songs in your playlist. Prepare for the most fun workout session ever!
1. Burn — Ellie Goulding
This is one of my favourite tracks. It’s a fast and peppy number that’ll keep you going. The beats will definitely inspire you to run that extra mile!
2. Cheap Thrills — Sia feat. Sean Paul
Don’t even get me started on this number. It’s been right at the top of my playlist for the longest time. The beats will make you feel like getting up and dancing your heart out. This one needs to be on your list, for sure.
3. Worth It — Fifth Harmony feat. Kid Ink
For a dose of energy and self-lovin’, listen to Worth It by Fifth Harmony. It’ll make you want to push yourself and do more than you’ve ever done all these days!
4. Focus — Ariana Grande
If you need to listen to a song that gets you to focus and allows you to have fun while you’re at it, this is it! Ariana Grande’s peppy number boosts your spirits while you workout.
5. We Can’t Stop — Miley Cyrus
While the music video really grabbed the attention of people worldwide, there’s no denying that the song itself is both upbeat and catchy AF. Try and match the pace of your jog to the rhythm of the song. It’s easy to do and also fun!
6. All Of The Lights — Kanye West feat. Rihanna & Kid Cudi
All Of The Lights is the perfect song to listen to when you’re working out. The beats will make your workout session a lot more fun and will also help keep up your energy levels!
7. Light It Up — Major Lazer feat. Nyla & Fuse ODG
Major Lazer is one of my all-time favourite artists. Listening to any of his songs while you work out sure is a good idea. But Light It Up is my personal favourite and something that I tend to listen to whenever I get up early enough for a jog!
8. Bang Bang — Jessie J, Ariana Grande & Nicki Minaj
This song is bold, spunky, and great to listen to. It’s ideal for when you’re taking a quick jog around the park or while you finish up with your cardio.
