This week’s playlist is brought to you by Juliet Burgh, coach and nutrition director at Unite Fitness, a Philly-based training studio known for its tough 75-minute workouts and—wait for it—killer playlists.
Juliet picked tracks this week that’ll keep you sweating for up to two full hours. That’s one epic run, walk in the Wissahickon, or killer gym session. Get your streaming on below.
