While trying to be hero-like in our fitness and life journeys, we always look for ways to motivate ourselves at the gym and workout classes, or pump us up to play a sport.

When I hear music, I fear no danger. I am invulnerable. I see no foe. I am related to the earliest times, and to the latest.”
-Henry David Thoreau

Getting amped up for any physical activity is just one part of the overall experience, and as Thoreau alluded to, music can make you feel invincible and ready to take on any competition or take on a challenge without apprehension. It’s science!

Being fans of psychology as well, we at HeroFit know the importance of a solid music playlist for your workouts. So, we picked out a few of our favorite energy boosters and asked our podcast guests to contribute theirs as well, it’s quite an eclectic mix.

One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.”
-Bob Marley

We’ve added these music recommendations to a Spotify Playlist, Apple Music Playlist, & YouTube Music Playlist. Check ‘em out. See if they hit your body, mind and soul. Maybe some of these tunes will help you get through a tough day and make the most of whatever workout you want to crush.
