The ultimate summer workout playlist to lift your mood

Switching up your playlist is one of the easiest ways to make your workout feel fresh again. That’s why we’ve created a new summer workout playlist designed to boost your mood during your next cardio session.

Whether you’re hitting your goals in the air conditioning of the gym or taking your workout outdoors, this is the ideal soundtrack to a summer of wellness.

We asked David Lloyd Clubs members and staff for their favourite summer-inflected tracks. Not all of these tunes are literally about summer – it’s more about creating feel-good vibes while you’re getting your sweat on.

While it’s a great standalone summer playlist, you can, of course, use it for inspiration and cherry-pick tracks to build your own bespoke sunny-day soundtrack.

And even though we’ve created this playlist with workouts in mind, we’re also confident that it would go down nicely at your next summer barbecue!

Get ready to discover your new favourite summer sounds…
