Listening to music while working out makes it more enjoyable but did you know it also helps you workout harder?
“Music is like a legal drug for athletes,” says Costas Karageorghis, Ph.D. from London’s Brunel University school of Sport and Education. “It can reduce the perception of effort significantly and increase endurance by as much as 15 percent.”
Since I’m teaching 6 classes a week, making sure I have a kick ass, new and updated playlist regularly is a challenge. When it comes to my own runs, I don’t care if I listen to the same songs for months but keeping things new and fresh is an important component when you work at a studio like Barry’s Bootcamp that prides itself on having awesome loud music.
Here is a list of my favorite fall songs for my own cardio workouts and classes.
I use Spotify for most of my classes because it’s easy to make new playlists but I also love discovering new remixes on SoundCloud and Dirrty Remixes. I also am NOT sick of Shake It Off yet but I assume most people are at this point…
I’m always looking for good new remixes so if you have a favorite, let me know down below!
I will never be sick of Shake it Off lol

Love this list, I hadn’t heard of any of them.
I’m guilty of just listening to the songs I love while running. So I’ve been burning through Ed Sheeran’s new album.
Yay Shake it off!!!
Kelly @ The Fit Skool says

Lauren @ The Bikini Experiment says
Say My Name takes me way back! Thanks for the playlist!

Love this list! I’ve been making my own playlist recently and quite a bit of them are on yours!
Best playlist ever, thank you! we share the same taste for our workouts!
Emma @ Life's A Runner says
It has been literally months -- since my June half marathon -- that I made a new playlist. I’m getting majorly sick of it! I can’t wait to listen to all of these. 🙂

This is a great list! I’ll be sure to incorporate some of these in to my workouts this week. I’m always looking to mix things up.
