I am one of those people who just can't work out without music. If my iPod dies during my run, I slow to a halt, as if my batteries have died.
I've always wondered how people hit the gym without some type of music fueling them forward. The sound of my ragged panting just isn't my jam when it comes to workout music. I prefer something a bit, uh, catchier.
Since my go-to workout mix is getting a little tired, my fellow Total Beauty editors and I have come up with five workout playlists for whatever your mood may be.
We've got the playlist for when you've had an overly indulgent weekend in Vegas and need to work off those buffet pounds, stat. We've also come up with the soundtrack perfect for a mellow hike with your dog. Basically, whatever type of get-off-your-butt activity you've got planned, we've got the playlist.
Because even if you shot out of the womb wearing Nike sneakers and terry cloth wristbands, when it comes to working out, everyone needs some motivation, and music is that perfect motivator.
"We're affected by our external world, so therefore the music we're playing is crucial," says yoga instructor and celebrity trainer Sara Ivanhoe. "It completely influences the nature of a workout."
