Whether you’re training for a marathon, pedaling to burn calories, or dancing to stay trim and toned, the perfect motivational workout playlist will keep your energy up to achieve your exercise resolutions! We all do it: workout goals at the beginning of the New Year fizzle after a few months. Avoid the landslide this year once and for all with music that will motivate your workout and keep a smile on your face regardless of your exercise of choice.

For the best motivational workout playlist, we recommend choosing songs with fast tempos and exciting beats. Starting and ending with a slightly slower song will help set the pace for a proper warm-up and cool-down. And a variety of music and genres will keep your mind active, so you can concentrate on the songs instead of side cramps (ouch!).

Workout playlists are useful for both solo and group exercise. Our very own District Consultant, Julie Schweers in Orange County said, “I love Shake Señora by Pitbull and T-Pain. When they play it at my Mommy Boot Camp, it just makes us smile, work harder, laugh, and makes us want to shake it!” One song that helps us get ready to break a sweat is “It’s Time” by Imagine Dragons:

Find a Mommy fitness class in your neighborhood that’ll help you shake your booty with tons of deals for spinning, Pilates and fitness memberships!

Whenever it’s time to hit the gym or head to the latest fitness class, remember to keep your mobile gadgets charged and ready to blast your playlist. Plum District’s FixMENYC deal for an iPhone 5 Accessory Pack might just be your motivation ticket to kick that New Year’s resolution. Don’t wait: Plum District’s deal ends soon, and we know you’re ready to jumpstart your exercise routine with an awesome song mix!

And to avoid any further delay, we’ve built an hour-long motivational workout playlist with some of our favorite songs that get us moving and grooving! You can listen, download, and get motivated with songs and playlists on Spotify:
