Song Cycle: A Classical Work Out

By Collette Cook and Kathleen Sykes

With the beautiful spring weather upon us, it’s time to dig out your sneakers and workout—but not without music! The perfect workout playlist isn’t just a collection of songs that you enjoy listening to, though. Your playlist should be filled with music that keeps you motivated to move. The tempo of the music on your playlist acts like a remote control, telling your body to slow down or speed up to match the beat.

We’ve curated this playlist of classical jams that will get your heart rate up, keep your blood pumping, and inspire you all the way to the end. From Verdi to Shostakovich and Orff to Mozart, these composers will guide you throughout your whole sweat session.
