2013 Workout Playlist to Lose Weight Fast

rate it:  

If you're lacking that motivation to hit the gym, it may be time to spice up your workout playlist. The best workout songs hand-picked by the CMWL staff. 

You know the feeling: You’re at work and your favorite song comes on the radio that just makes you want to get up and move; You’re sitting in your car during rush hour when you hear that tune that makes you break out your best hair-whipping, arm-flinging dance moves (and hope that the person in the car next to you doesn’t see you making a complete fool out of yourself); and CMWL’s personal favorite: when you’re at the gym and a song gives you that motivation to push a little harder, longer. 

Well, studies back it up. Music can increase endurance by 15 percent and help you focus on a positive attitude while you break a sweat, according to research from Brunel University’s School of Sport and Education.

If you’re lacking that extra motivation, it may be time for a workout playlist makeover. We’ve surveyed the CMWL staff to create the perfect, motivating lineup to help you reach your weight loss goals.
