Your Spring 2013 Workout Playlist

The first day of spring has finally arrived! It’s time to update the ol’ iPod with a surefire, get-you-hyped playlist.


I’m not sure if you guys have heard yet, but, uh, the first day of spring is today. And if you’re anything like me (God help you), you’re probably thinking, “Huh … um … but … didn’t we just celebrate Christmas?” Believe me, I know.

The good news is, spring is probably the very best season for running, cycling and other outdoor workouts. So if you’re itching to get outdoors (but need an extra nudge of motivation), I’ve got you covered: Here, the most awesome, bad-ass springtime workout playlist, complete with high energy beats and some of my favorite bass lines to get your adrenaline pumping.

Some of these techno bangers may not be for everyone (hi, Dad!), but my hope is that, regardless of who you are, this playlist will give you the motivation to navigate streets, hills and—wait, is that a new Justin Timberlake song? Why, yes. Yes, it is.

Check out the full lineup below, and click here to stream the playlist top to bottom. You’ll need to register (it’s free) with Spotify to listen to the playlist, but I swear it’s worth it! Or, scroll below to listen to all 20 picks via YouTube.
