The Ultimate Country Music Workout Playlist

By , SparkPeople Blogger
You might not initially think of country music as the ideal workout soundtrack. And while it’s true that there are some slower, sadder tunes of the "lost my truck, lost my love, lost my dog" variety, the genre has plenty of up-tempo, high-energy, downright rockin’ medleys to put some calorie-burning pep in your step.
You don’t have to visit a Nashville honky-tonk or learn a complicated line dance to get your boot-scootin' boogie on—simply create your own country music playlist, plug in your earbuds and then run, walk, spin or shuffle along to the Americana-inspired tunes. Heck, you can even do the two-step through your living room, as long as you’re moving. (Boots and hat are optional.)
