I’m sharing a new workout playlist today.
The Monday after yoga teacher training always feels a little bit hectic trying to catch up, so today is feeling a less crazy. It feels good to be back into the normal swing of things.
I’m one of those people who needs to be entertained when I’m doing cardio or else it feels like time is dragging. Whether it’s talking to a friend on the treadmill next to me, listening to a podcast, or enjoying some music.
Having some new music to listen to makes my time on the elliptical fly by. There’s nothing worse than an elliptical workout that seems to never end. That’s why I share monthly workout playlists here on GFF. I need new music to keep myself distracted.
I typically only listen to the workout playlists that I make when I’m at the gym. There’s just something about keeping them fresh and special as a gym only thing that somehow makes them more fun to listen to.
This month’s playlist includes some of my older favorite songs. Cry Me a River by Justin Timberlake has to be from the early 2000’s. Moves Like Jagger is older too, but it’s my absolute favorite Maroon 5 song. I think Bad Romance was one of Lady Gaga’s earlier hits too.
Really, anything by Bruno Mars is fun to listen to. Imagine Dragons is another favorite of mine. And I dare you to stay still while listening to Single Ladies by Beyonce. It’s practically impossible, so it’s perfect for a workout playlist.
