Anyone who is active and works out regularly will tell you that music makes a significant difference in a workout routine. Whether it’s running, swimming, lifting weights, or even kickboxing, listening to music will drastically improve your workout.
I have created a playlist of my top 10 favorite songs that will be sure to challenge and unleash your inner diva!
The Diva’s Swim Playlist
- Roar – Katy Perry. This is one of my favorite songs of all time. It’s so empowering and motivates me to push myself harder and faster during my workout.
- Fantasy – Mariah Carey. Well considering Mariah Carey is the ultimate diva, it only seems fitting. Not to mention I haven’t met a single person, male or female who isn’t totally obsessed with 90’s Mariah. This is one of her best songs and is an all around feel good song.
- Shake It Off – Taylor Swift. Anyone who knows me knows I am a huge Taylor Swift fan. This songs always puts me in a great mood. I can’t get through a workout without it.
- Since U Been Gone – Kelly Clarkson. This was my favorite song back in the day. And it’s still a favorite today. It’s so catchy and always makes me swim (or run) faster.
- Really Don’t Care – Demi Lovato. This is another catchy, empowering song, not to mention incredibly fun to sing along to.
- Run The World (Girls) – Beyonce. What is a diva playlist without a little Beyonce?!
- Break Free – Ariana Grande & Zedd. Oh this song holds a special place in my heart. I love the music, the lyrics, and Zedd is simply amazing. So, when you put them all together you have a modern day masterpiece.
- Work – Iggy Azalea. I’ve recently hopped on board the Iggy Azalea train and have never looked back. This song motivates me and inspires me to reach my maximum potential.
- Raise Your Glass – P!nk. This song instantly puts a smile on my face and I can’t help but dance. It has this effect on me no matter where I am or what I’m doing. P!nk is the original bad ass.
- Sunday Morning – No Doubt. This song is amazing, and it has a magical spell over me. I can’t explain it. It just pumps me up in the best way possible.
