You Need These Gym Playlists In Your Life

Sometimes getting motivated to exercise can be harder than the workout itself. That’s why it helps to think of your gym time as a middle school dance: You’re going to feel awkward and hug the wall until a really great song comes on.

With that in mind, we’re rounding up our favourite workout tracks, from fresh remixes to old favourites. Get ready to catch yourself humming through your jog, training circuit, or yoga practice. And, don’t worry, Beyoncé makes an appearance.

Don't be surprised if you end up keeping a steadier pace while listening. Music with a strong beat has been found to help people's movements stay consistent during exercise.

This week, we've added five of our favourite Solange songs, in honour of the singer's stunning SNL performance last weekend.

This is the playlist to get you moving — the gym's never been so much fun.
Here's last season's playlist, if you're already yearning to return to Summer '16.
And don't forget to check out our playlist from Spring '16, too.

Check back in the following weeks for more of your favourite tracks.
