SparkSounds: Music Playlists from SparkPeopleMusic for Workouts, Motivation and More!
-- By SparkPeople
Editor's Note: We've had many technical issues with the SparkSounds playlists in recent months, so we have removed this article from the site. If you happened to find it anyway, please note that the playlists are no longer working. We hope to add them back in the future though! Thanks for your understanding.
Music is important to most people. It can pick you up when you're feeling down, motivate you when you need a little push, and inspire you to go the extra mile during a workout.
Below you'll find SparkPeople playlists, which were created by our own staff members and experts! By clicking on a playlist below, a small music player will pop up. Keep it playing in the background while you're using the website or watching one of our workout videos. You can also look at the song lists for ideas to add to your own music player! We hope you enjoy these SparkSounds!
