    We always find the moment just before you’re about to work out to be kind of awkward. You make sure your shoes are tied properly. You take a deep breath. And, then you just, um, go for it? Yeah, everything about hitting the gym and getting fit tends to be a bit more stressful than necessary. So, we've put together a handful of playlists specifically tailored to your go-to brand of exercise. Hit play and you’ll be ready to go from the first step of your workout. How easy is that?

    From ballet tunes perfect for leaping around your apartment to cycling jams from our favorite spin instructors, these songs will promote those get-off-your-seat-and-move vibes we all need to just do it. If nothing else, you can listen along, tap your feet at your desk, and, hey, maybe even burn a few calories in the process. Ready to pump up the volume?
