These Spotify Playlists Will Put Your Workout Into High Gear

You’re at the gym feeling unmotivated and about to just give up and go home. You click the next button on your playlist a few more times hoping for a little inspiration and then, as if it was destiny, it happens. All of a sudden that one song that can always get you to push yourself further precedes to play.

The key to a successful workout, or movie, or actually most moments in life, can be as simple as the setting the right soundtrack. Gyms around the world emphasize the importance of a solid playlist, and many have transformed their programming to reflect the niche music tastes of their members.
