my 80s workout playlist

my 80s workout playlist

Hey guys!

Happy Throwback Thursday!! Check out my Throwback Thighs routine!
Throwback Thighs Workout! 1. Side Leg Lifts x 12 ea side 2. Flexed Leg Lifts x 12 ea side 3. Leg Circles x 10 ea side 4. Side Lying Bicycles x 12 ea side. Tag a workout buddy to join in! Today I was inspired to make an 80s workout playlist in partnership with @spotify and their new #TasteRewind web app for you! (Sometimes you get bored of the radio Top 40 ya know?) I had so much fun compiling songs from my FAVE, Michael Jackson!!! As well as Prince, Madonna, etc. Go listen to it on and learn about my throwback giveaway too! ?

Music is so important to me when it comes to working out. Because I love dancing, I love doing things to the beat of the music. If the song is fast, I run faster. If the song is slow, I stretch longer and breathe slower. If there’s no music at all or I forget to bring my headphones to the gym, I will literally turn back and grab my headphones before I start working out. To me, it makes a HUGE DIFFERENCE – great music is the foundation of a very exciting workout. Plus as a group fitness instructor, I need to always have the best music for leading a high energy class.

Lately though, I’ve been getting a little tired of the top 40 hits. The same songs are still being played over and over again! So I felt compelled to dig into musical history for extra motivation. I made myself a 1-hr long 80s playlist in partnership with Spotify inspired by their new Taste Rewind app and thought you would like to listen to it too! Check it out here:

You may notice that I am kind of a HUGE Michael Jackson fan. Besides Michael, my only other favorite artist is Taylor Swift 🙂 But she’s obvi not 80s, so I will make another boy-trouble inspired playlist for you another time 😛 bad-badder-the-bad-world-tour-billie-jean-michael-jackson-19013348-873-955You should also check out Spotify’s new web app called “Taste Rewind“. It’s basically a time machine for music! So what they do is take what you currently listen to most on Spotify and then suggest songs that you might like from different decades! It’s kind of like a personal DJ or music friend that says “Hey, if you like Tove Lo’s ‘Talking Body’ then wait til you hear this song!” (By the way I love ‘Talking Body’ but it’s so inappropriate that I would never be able to play it in class! Anyone know where I can find the clean edit!?) It’s a fun, great way to expand your musical horizons PLUS it makes you wonder what you would have listened to if you were growing up in the 60’s 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, 00’s. Kinda like the vintage version of you 🙂 See what you would have listened to here: I’ve been a Spotify member forever because of my profession as a fitness instructor, but I TOTALLY highly recommend it for everyone. Music is such a big part of my life that I want to be able to explore it free-flowingly. Radio has way too many commercials and it gets old fast! Because I want you to keep exploring music…I’m doing a GIVEAWAY in partnership with Spotify just for you guys! So here’s what you will win: 1 GRAND PRIZE:

  1. 1 year subscription to Spotify Premium
  2. Vintage inspired Master & Dynamic Headphones

    Michael Jackson!!!!!! My favorite singer!!!!

  2. Jess says:

    Aw man I’m late. And since I don’t use Instagram this would’ve been a contest I could actually do 🙁
    I’d have to say Pierce the Veil, My Chemical Romance, and Linkin Park though. They all put on amazing live shows. The first two have really deep lyrics and great instrumentals while the latter has a unique sound that blends elements of rock, metal, rap, and electronic.

  3. Kris says:

    I missed out on this one lol 🙁 but i’m glad you picked 80’s music. I love it soooo much! 😀 My fave song is Let the music play. I love madonna 🙂

  73. Esther Kwon says:

    My favorite music artist is a Seattle-based rapper called GOWE (Gifted On West East). Though rap is often perceived as vulgar, crude, and based solely on materialism, GOWE spins this idea completely through his music, in which he talks about faith, his past, and much more-all without using a single curse word. GOWE creates his music with poetic lyrics containing meaning and purpose, which I find exceptionally motivating and unique to the rap industry. Unfortunately however, GOWE is not given nearly enough recognition or the audience that he deserves. I had the opportunity to listen to him talk about his experience discovering he was adopted when he was 18 years old and how he was able to make music his career through his determination, passion, and faith…and I must say that he is a truly inspiring person, especially in the music world. In your free time, I would highly recommend listening to his music, particularly the song “Wait For You”. 🙂

  76. Esther Kwon says:

    My favorite music artist is a Seattle-based rapper called GOWE (Gifted On West East). Although rap is usually perceived as vulgar and crude with very shallow and materialistic desires, GOWE completely spins this idea around through his music, in which he talks about faith, his past, and much more-all without using a single curse word. GOWE twists his rap into poetic lyrics with meaning and purpose, which I find so inspirational and unique to the rap industry. The sad thing is that he is not given nearly enough recognition or audience that he deserves. I have also listened to him give a talk about his experience discovering he was adopted when he was 18 years old and how he was able to make a career through music from his passion and his faith. I really must say he is a truly inspiring person and his music has really encouraged and comforted me throughout my ups and downs in life. If you have the time, I would highly recommend checking out his music, particularly the song “Wait for You”. 🙂

    As a music therapist, someone who uses music on a daily basis to achieve functional change in behaviors, I love so many artists this is very hard to choose. I will have to go with… Billy Joel

  120. Kelsey Goodin says:

    My favorite artist is Vampire Weekend! I love their more fast paced songs like Dianne Young and California English for working out and then their slower stuff (especially Don’t Lie!) for relaxing or doing homework.

  121. Jennifer says:

    Kelly Clarkson! And also Avril Lavigne

  122. Priscilla Pasillas says:

    Dan+Shay or Two door cinema club!!

  123. Madison says:

    Rixton are my fav! Plus their music would be perfect for your videos! On their album Let The Road there is so many different types of music and it is all awesome!!

  124. Cassie says:

    My fav 80’s is for sure Styxx! I get down to anything 80’s or classic rock. I have a wide pallet though ranging from MJ and T swift to Garth Brooks and Taking Back Sunday!! I’m glad I discovered your site!

  125. Madison says:

    Ed Sheeran!!!
    Omg he is is just amazing! He is so amazing and can sing!!! I mean everyone almost has heard him! he is so sweet and awesome!

  126. Madison says:

    Rixton!! their music is so awesome and catchy, you”ll have their songs stuck in your head all day! They make their own music and it is so good! They are a boyband, but aren’t like any other boyband you’ve heard. please check them out it’s so worth it and you won’t regret it!

  127. Madison says:

    Omg you need to put Rixton in some videos!!! They are one of my favorite artists!! They are just simply amazing! They are a British boy band and have their own style. They are like One Direction or anyone else. They make all their own music and all play instruments. Their style is rock/pop. Rixton aren’t afraid to take chances that others wouldn’t consider doing. Rixton’s album Let The Road is out everywhere. Btw Ed Sheeran wrote one of the songs on the album for them (Hotel Ceiling) and are great friends with Ed. They are recently on tour with Ariana Grande and currently on tour with Ed Sheeran. I believe they are the next hit and feel bad for people that haven’t heard them yet!

  128. Madison says:

  129. Jessica says:

    Justin Timberlake for sure. I get tired of listening to the same songs too, so I am ALWAYS looking for new songs and artists to listen to. But JT is my go-to man. From NSYNC to his now solo career, I’ve been a fan all the way! Yes, his songs are crazy long but it’s like 2 or 3 songs in 1 because they change throughout and that’s what I love the most!! It’s a musical journey. A lot of older songs are long too so they can tell their own stories, but nowadays most songs barely make it over 3 min. Which is fine but I get used to squatting and bridge pulsing for only 3 minutes, JT helps me push it to 5 minutes….. 8 minutes if I’m feeling a little crazy. 😉

  130. Madison says:

    SHAWN MENDES!!!! He is bae and his music is just unbelievable! He is currently on tour with Taylor Swift. go check him out, its so worth it!

  131. Sofia says:

    Picking a favorite artist is so hard, but I’m absolutely loving Zedd right now!

  132. Madison says:

    They are just amazing! They are incredible in concert and amazing singers. Everyone has almost heard them. They have been around for a few years now and are smashing it!

  133. Madison says:

    Nick Jonas!!!!
    Omg his album is to die for! Plus he is so hot! i saw him in concert and he is a truly talented artist!!

  134. Chelsea says:

    Ed Sheeran. I love him 🙂

  135. Madison says:

    Charlie Puth!!!
    I fell in love with the song See You Again he wrote and sings. I looked up other songs he sang and now im obsessed!!

  136. Madison says:

    Meghan Trainor is one of my fav artists are the moment! Her album (Title) is just amazing. Meghan has chart topping hits such as All About That Bass and Lips Are Moving. She is my idol and role model, because she is just so awesome, sweet, and cool.

  137. Madison says:

    The Vamps are one of my favorite artists right now! they are awesome live and im going to see them in concert on July 31! their style is pop/rock. they are a little like One Direction, but are different too. They all play instruments and are very talented!

  138. Madison says:

    One favorite artist at the moment for me is Shawn Mendes!
    He is just an awesome artist and his songs people can relate to. Shawn’s voice is just unbelievable and is incredible at playing the guitar! His Album is Handwritten and there isn’t words to describe how amazing it is. My favorite song of his is Stitches. I believe it’s only the beginning of topping the charts for Shawn. Please go listen to him and you won’t regret it!

  139. Sarah Jenkins says:

    Twenty-one pilots! Especially good for working out with a strong base line and beat 🙂 Anything alternative for me 🙂

  140. Elizabeth says:

    Britney Spears all the way!!! Always has been, always will be!

    As I got older, I grew to love rock music and moved towards Skillet, Rammstein and Bon Jovi…
