The Ultimate Workout Mix

Listen to our one-hour workout playlist on Spotify

Working out to music is almost necessary to fitness fiends and novices alike. The New York Times reported in 2008 that some studies show improved results when listening to music during exercise. The best results come with music that is at a tempo between 120 and 140 beats per minute. It’s no wonder almost everyone at the gym has their headphones in.

Here is Well+Being’s one-hour workout playlist that you can check out via Spotify, a music-sharing program. Download Spotify to your smartphone and you’ll be able to listen to this playlist wherever you go.
