Spring Workout Playlist

My one-year gym/studio membership for spin ends at the end of this week, and I won’t be renewing. Mainly due to wanting to save a bit of money since studio memberships are pretty pricey and I wasn’t quite getting the true value of what I paid for, only making it in about twice a week.

I hope to still pop in every once in a while because I really love spin! Maybe I’ll even give a few other classes a try, and/or use ClassPass. But for now, I plan on sticking with some extra long walks with my pup Sheba, and trying some new exercise routines at home. 

To inspire myself to get moving, I pulled together a list of some of my favorite workout tracks for spring. Hopefully they’ll inspire you too!

Jump – Van Halen
Trouble – Iggy Azalea feat. Jennifer Hudson
Homegrown – Zac Brown Band
Old Thing Back – Matoma & The Notorious B.I.G.
Another Night – Real McCoy
Somebody Loves You – Betty Who
Float On – Modest Mouse
Shut Up and Dance – WALK THE MOON

´╗┐Show Me Love – ´╗┐Robyn
Truffle Butter – Nicki Minaj feat. Drake & Lil Wayne

Want to Want Me – Jason Derulo
Don’t Stop – Fleetwood Mac

    I like to exercise with my Leslie Sansone indoor walking DVDs. I love the variations she puts into each workout to keep them fresh.

    My tunes are always pretty heavy when I excercise – a lot of Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, Avenged Sevenfold…it helps me to hear a little aggression when I'm trying to work it out!

    That playlist is right up my alley! No diggity? Amazing. Have you ever considered an at home bike trainer? Not sure if you have a roadbike already but a trainer is like $300 for a really good one and I find I use mine way more. I just sit in front of netflix and watch my favourite shows while I pedal away.

    I looked into it briefly a while back. I feel like it'd be worth the investment! There have been so many times where I'm just sitting on the couch watching Netflix but you're right – it seems like the perfect time to pedal (and not feel as guilty about binge watching)! Is there a specific one you recommend?
