Spring training: A new-season playlist to energise your workouts

Which is the best time of year for new beginnings? January would seem like an obvious choice; or there’s the new-school-term feeling of autumn. However, we’re here to make the case for spring. After all, it’s the season that brings warmer weather, lighter mornings and evenings, and the return of green leaves and blossom. It has a special feeling of freshness that you won’t find in January or September.

Assuming you agree, you may be ready to refresh your approach to well-being this spring. Why not start by hitting the refresh button on your workout soundtrack? Our spring-inspired playlist has been designed to help you shake off those winter blues and step into the season feeling revitalised and ready for something new. (It’ll work as a mood-booster even if the weather isn’t playing ball.)

Of course, you don’t have to use the playlist in its entirety – workout music can be very personal! Just take a listen to find your fresh spring-infused favourites. Don’t forget to remove any existing tracks from your playlist that no longer inspire you.

When building your spring-cleaned playlist, you could always try grouping songs to suit each stage of your session:

Warm up – Get those muscles moving as you listen to the likes of Chocolate by The 1975 and Sunflower by Post Malone.

Cardio – Kick things up a gear while pumping out tunes such as Mr Blue Sky by Electric Light Orchestra.

Strength – Hit a new personal best soundtracked by songs such as Higher Love by Kygo and Whitney Houston and Happier by Marshmello and Bastille.

Cool down – Let the soft melodies of Sunshine by Gabrielle and Lifted by the Lighthouse Family relax you into a cleansing stretch.
