My new Treadmill Playlist!

A few years ago I posted a play list that I used to get on the treadmill. I have a new one. I love this music because it keeps me focused and ready to do my 1.5 to 2 mile walks on the treadmill. I try to do 30 minutes of fast walking with 5 minutes of warm-up and 15 minutes cool down. Depending on how I feel, those times might change except for the 30 minutes. I need to get 30 minutes in regardless.

I have some great music on my phone so I use that to exercise with. I have gotten it down to a really good mix. Here is what I listen to. It varies sometimes but these songs are the core of my workout.

I like to start with something slow then work up to something faster. I start with:

Warm Up
All That Jazz - Cast Recording
Get Lucky - Daft Punk

Main Workout
Waiting for Tonight - Jennifer Lopez
Philadelphia Freedom - Elton John
You Should be Dancing - Bees Gees
Su Sonrisa - Elvis Crespo
Ojo Asi - Shakira
Work B**ch - Britney Spears
Suavemente - Elvis Crespo
Te Aviso, Te Anuncio - Shakira
Paper in Fire - John Mellencamp
Maria - Ricky Martin
Happy - Pharrell Williams

Cool Down
3 am - Matchbox 20
Shambala - Three Dog Night
Cry Me River - Justin Timberlake
Landslide - Stevie Nicks

Let me tell you that once I get to Elvis Crespo, it starts getting intense. The most motivational song is "Work, B**ch" by Brittney Spears. That gets me going and along with Shakira and Elvis Crespo, you will get a really great workout. Check out some of these songs if you want to get moving!


  1. What a great playlist, some of those songs are favorites for me too. I use the treadmill in the mornings and I'm still working on my playlist.

  2. This is a very good playlist. I will have to listen to some of these to get me going when I exercise. It always goes faster when I listen to music when I exercise.

  3. I love your playlist! So many great songs! And also, I dislike my treadmill. haha

  4. Awesome playlist, might have to steal this one for myself, great sounds for lots of energy. Love!

  5. Great list! I'll use it for house cleaning since that's when I listen to music.
