Want to crush your next training session like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson or Khloe Kardashian? We’ve got the celebrity workout playlists from these – and other – stars who know how to get it done.
After all – music is the ultimate workout enhancer. It distracts people from pain and fatigue, elevates mood, increases endurance, reduces perceived effort and may even promote metabolic efficiency.
When listening to music, people lift more, run farther and bike longer than usual — often without even realizing it.
So pump up your workout with these celebrity workout playlists, or check out PopSugar’s “Best Workout Songs of 2018.”
Then, leave a comment – what are your favorite workout songs – or even one song that’s your anthem, and why?
We’ll list your picks in a blog post next week. Whoever gives us the most awesome selection wins a 4-pack Scoopie set (value: $14.99).
Until then, here’s your superstar-inspired motivation for the gym.
