Music Playlist for Walking/Exercise



Recommended Posts

So, I threw together a Spotify playlist to listen to when I do my mostly daily walking for exercise. The songs range ALL over the place, but generally are tracks that I consider to be high energy or have a strong rhythm to keep me moving. I decided to open it up as a Collaborative Playlist the other day and asked friends on Facebook and Twitter to add stuff to it to hopefully increase the variety.

And well...hey...I spend a decent amount of time here. This is a type of a social setting with people who are also committed to their weight loss journeys...so why not throw it out there to another audience to see about getting some more songs on that playlist. :)

I am trying to keep it to one song per artist, but that's not a hard and fast rule. Please feel free to add onto my playlist or maybe use it as some inspiration to add to any playlist you might use!

Great list! As an 80s hairband fan, I would add:

AC DC - Shook me all night long

Warrant - Cherry Pie

Def Leppard - Pour some sugar on me

Bon Jovi - Living on a prayer

When I was binge running it was audio books. While I enjoy music it doesn't occupy my mind like it does for many/most people. Audio books take me away. Same for anything that takes time, audio books are my go to for keeping me going.

Stephen King Dark Tower series was memorable, the reader was great. I stuck with mostly sci-fi or fantasy.

I've tried doing audiobooks in the past when exercising. It never worked for me as I found I would end up not fully engaged with the books and thus would end up having to re-listen to chunks of the book because I realized I missed key details. Music works great for me as it helps keep my body moving if I focus on the rhythm and try to keep my pace to match it.

I can see that. I can't see audio books working well for gym type exercise where tempo is an important feature for which music helps.

If I'm exercising, it's running. Different beast. At least for me. But, as usual, like to throw out options. Remember, I'm weird.

Can't go wrong with some good 80s tunes. And yes that is a pretty eclectic but good list. Thanks for sharing.

That's a GREAT playlist! I didn't know they could be shared/collaborative.

Sometimes I listen to audiobooks, whatever topic I want. I also look for a playlist on Spotify.

I have made 4 different Spotify playlists. I titled them by the approximate time the list takes to listen too. For instance I have a "Classic Rock-30 minutes". Thrash Metal -20 minutes (higher intensity shorter time). So I have different playlists for different workouts. I can ignore the "clock".

I alternate between rowing and treadmill and I watch HGTV on my discovery plus app on my phone. I find nothing occupies my mind quite like judging home decor.

        I’m 67 and had surgery in September.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!
