How to Create the Perfect Workout Playlist

Boost Your Exercise Mojo with the Right Music

    This is a very energizing idea and look forward to creating one from all eras. BTW-OLD is a state of mind. I have learned to enjoy all types of music from classical to today's tunes. REMEMBER--We are not old, we are just not as young as we used to be. [This goes for all ages so it doesn't matter what age we are.] - 5/3/2015 2:51:06 PM
  • I saw an article somewhere about how many beats per minute to target for various workout activities (e.g. cardio, walking, cool-down), but can't seem to find it now. That's what would be helfpul to me because my workout list is very eclectic - some musical, some singing, in English, French, Spanish, old songs, new songs... There are very few musical styles I don't like, so it's really a matter of variety. One thing I have noticed that works best for me is to have longer songs (e.g. 6+ minutes each), rather than changing songs every couple of minutes. - 5/2/2015 8:31:33 AM
  • Great! - 4/22/2015 2:30:35 PM
    I agree about getting songs for over 50, actually over 70. We need a play list for us slightly over the hill folks - 1/12/2015 11:14:34 AM
  • How about songs from the '60s and '70s? - 1/12/2015 10:44:35 AM
    The problem I have with these workout song lists is they are always oriented towards the young crowd. It would be great to post a list for the older generation - music that we love. - 10/25/2014 12:39:16 PM
  • Good ideas. - 8/8/2014 5:29:09 AM
    Great article. Thanks for the guidance- I'm off to revamp my playlist! - 8/7/2014 9:56:19 AM
  • I just created a new playlist based on this idea. Great idea!! - 8/7/2014 9:21:27 AM
  • My gym playlist, entitled "RAAAAAAAAH!!!" is nothing but METAL.

  • I too also randomize my playlists. I also don't mind adding and subtracting songs once in a while...if it becomes repetitive, it's less motivating. - 8/7/2014 4:43:29 AM
  • I pretty much do the same thing - 6/23/2014 5:57:45 AM

    I think the key to building a good workout playlist is to pick songs that make you feel good. They might not ever make a suggested list on a website or be something that anyone else would choose, but if they make YOU feel good then put 'em on your list! - 6/22/2014 11:06:51 AM
    I'm not sure I want a "killer" track..................;) - 2/9/2014 1:52:17 PM
  • Good article - music can be the key to pushing through a workout when you want to give up. - 11/28/2013 6:19:16 AM
