What I'm Listening To | Cardio Mix

I won't go so far as to say that I love working out, but when really great music is playing I can get into a workout state of mind. I've been spinning about 3 times a week and for the most part the instructors have really great songs, but for me, if the music is lacking I wont push myself as hard. I thought it would be fun to create my own mix that would be great for any cardio activity! Some are newer songs thanks to iTunes radio & other's are just pump you up songs! 
workout songs, playlist for cardio, treadmill songs, spin songs

These need to be on your playlist ||

And because there's nothing better than new workout clothes and accessories to get you in a gym state of mind - I've rounded up a few of my favorite workout pieces! These leggings are my favorite and I've had them for 2 years. I know S'well bottle are rather pricey, but Gary got me one as a gift for Christmas 2 yeas ago and I use it every single day #greatpurchase 

What songs are you listening to right now? Any I should add to my ever growing mix?

  3. I agree that music puts you in the mood! Right now I love running to 24k Magic by Bruno Mars. And Dustin got me a swell bottle for Christmas and I love taking it everywhere! It's such a chic water bottle :)

  20. I think I've been listening to too much NPR... I seriously know about 1/2 of the songs on your play list. Apparently, I need to get my head out of the sand! Ha! And oh how I miss cute gym pants!!! I am seriously neglecting my Lulu drawer these days. XOXO, R

  26. I am trying to get back my workout grove that I had before I got pregnant. I mean, let's face it...I totally phoned in most of my workouts while pregnant and I haven't worked out since maybe October? It is so hard to get back! I think I am going to go download your playlist and treat myself to a few new pieces of workout gear to get inspired again!

  27. Lol, I couldn't help but think of Arielle Charnas from Something Navy's daughter, Ruby Lou, when I saw the first song. If you watch her IG Stories, that's Ruby's favorite song and she's always jamming out to it, haha, such a great beat! You've really created an awesome playlist here that'll sure to get you pumped and ready to push yourself further. I'm the same way. Cardio is not my fave, but if there's a great music line-up, I get in the zone, haha. Thanks for sharing, beauty, and I hope you're having the best week so far!

  30. i use my s'well bottle every single day too. my boss is constantly saying "you ALWAYS have that thing." Um yes.

  31. Shape of you is definitely my favorite song right now too! So catchy! I got my husband a swell water bottle for his birthday a couple of years ago and he left it in a room after a meeting and someone took it-- so sad!

  36. totally agree about the music in classes - i've been doing spin for the last couple of weeks and some of the music is so fabulous and other songs are... eh. haha. there is one song that goes with a specific lunge track in body pump that i added to my own playlist because i just love it for any workout - it's called peanut butter jelly. hahaha. it always pumps me up.
    i need new workout clothes and i've asked for them for my birthday - i'll have to share some of those links with KC!

  37. I am with you - I definitely need good music to get me through a workout - I always just listen to Pandora but I really need to take this as some inspiration to get around to making a playlist!

  38. I listen to a lot of Spotify for cardio, but I get bored of it too...I am totally stealing this!

  39. I'm obsessed with "Shape of You"... such a good song!!

  40. Great list!! I have some new ideas now to add to mine!
    I'm kind of weird with workouts, but I don't always listen to really high-intensity music...like, sometimes I can workout in the gym for an hour or go for a run while listening to some more mellow singer/songwriter music. I'm LOVING Brandi Carlile right now... And The Shins are one of my all-time favorite bands..their albums are great to listen to straight through!

  41. I am completely obsessed with Shape of You. Ed Sheeran is always just amazing! And I love my gold Swell bottle, too! It's unbelievable how long the water stays cold in it!

    ReplyDelete
  42. You're so right about the right music can make or break a work out, so hopefully the spin classes get some better music sometime soon! Swell bottles really are totally worth it! I don't know what I'd do without mine!

    ReplyDelete
  43. LOVE this playlist, B! Really and truly a lot of Gaga's and Sia's music is great! I often listen to the workout stations on Spotify because they are SO good!

  47. I agree the music sets the pace of your workout and really upbeat songs help to pump you up when it comes to extreme cardio. Of course comfortable workout tights and a sports bra are a must too!

  58. I definitely need to update my workout playlist... I'm still listening to High School Musical 3... don't judge me. There might be some Shakira hips don't lie on there, too. ;)
